Gatorade used to be my goto on long bike rides and extended gym stays. But because of the large amount of sugar and empty calories I decided to look around for a healthier alternative to help replenish depleted mineral and salt stores. I was viewing Mobility WOD and the coach talked about using Camelbak Elixir so I decided to give it a try.
This product dissolves quickly and easy and doesn't leave a residue. Shortly after putting 1/2 - 1 tab in my water bottle the elixir is ready to drink. It quickly makes a big difference in restoring all of the minerals and salts lost in my workouts. It supports my ability to recover from strenuous activites and continue on with my workouts. It is a great nutritional support that facilitates recovery like nothing I have tried before.
A necessary and helpful product but once you do some research you will find that this waay over priced compared to Nuun Tablets who offer the same nutrition at 1/4 the cost. Camelbak does taste better but luckily I try to make it a priority to choose function 1st and taste 2nd.
May not be the cheapest but it does work well.
I like to carry these with me when I go hiking long distances in hot weather.
* Taste is decent, which is saying a lot for most of these instant electrolyte drinks. I wouldn't mix up a glass of this stuff at home, but out on the trails, I can down quite a bit of this stuff with only a minor grimace.
* Effective for heat stress. After hiking 15 miles in 90+ degree heat in the George Washington National Forest this summer, I was toast. I dropped two tabs in a 48 oz Nalgene bottle of filtered spring water, chugged it and almost instantly felt quite a bit better for the remaining 5 miles to my car.
* No sugar, so it doesn't leave a sticky residue on your gear.
* I don't use this in my CamelBak reservoir (I reserve that for plain water only), but if I did, my reservoir holds 3L. 3L ~= 101.5oz. Instructions say use one tab per 24 oz. 101.5/24 = 4.229. So for a full reservoir, either you drink it weak (4 tabs), real strong (5 tabs), or cut one tab in quarters. I would have expected an even number of tabs to be used.
* The lid on the tube comes off way too easy! I was hiking this past weekend, in the rain. Me and my backpack got soaked. My tabs would have been fine (the interior of my backpack got moist, not soakingly damp) except the lid came off! A whole tube of 12 tabs ruined, and now my backpack reeks of artificial orange flavor. The lid only snaps on... why not a screw on?
I had the privilege of training with Pat while I was still a full-time police officer. The heat retained by the "kit" (e.g. body armor) that is worn makes the full pads of football three-a-days pale in comparison.
A few years after, I ended up leaving the PD to attend medical school full-time.
One of the things we learned about during our second year renal block is the dangerous medical condition of hyponatremia. This life threatening condition can occur in someone who is aggressively drinking water during a period of heavy physical exertion in hot weather--all of the water intake basically lowers sodium by dilution.
One of the best ways to deal with hyponatremia is to PREVENT it with electrolyte solutions. Enter Camelback Elixir, which contains 410mg of sodium/24 oz (in addition to other essentials).
It comes as a roll of 10 effervescent tables, similar to Airborne. Shipping from Amazon is FAST. You simply drop one in your water bottle (or Camelbak) and it makes Elixir out your existing water.
It's much easier than buying and storing Gatorade. Unlike that product, it also contains no sugar. In addition to containing "garbage" calories (yes, even the low sugar versions are still loaded), the sugar in typical sports drinks creates the perfect growth medium for all sorts of bacteria in your warm, dark Camelbak. Thus, the sugar-free aspect of Camelbak Elixir is quite appealing in a variety of ways.
Finally, as Pat capably notes in his YouTube video (search "Pat Rogers for Camelback"), ELIXIR TASTES *GOOD*. This means people will want to drink it. And when they do, they will be loading with both water and electrolytes, providing protection against both dehydration and hyponatremia.
Get some--they don't call it CAMEL-CRACK for nothing.
The only mild downside to them is the price, but you don't have to follow the directions exactly. I have a 100oz Antidote Camelbak and each tube would only be good for 3 fills if I followed the directions. I plan to use less tablets, maybe 2-3 to my filled Antidote. They have a pleasant taste that isn't over powering and not loaded with sugar so you don't crash later. Plus they won't funk up your Camelbak with any sticky residue. In very cold water they dissolve slowly, but you can break the tablets to speed up the processes.
I'll buy more if I need them.
