Thermolyte MetaSalt is an advanced formula to minimize muscle cramps and heat fatigue caused by excessive sweating. It enables optimal hydration and thermoregulation. MetaSalt can be used by triathletes, cyclists, runners, adventure racers, tennis players, and other athletes, as well as at the beach or industrial settings where high temperature causes heat exhaustion.

MetaSalt is the only sodium supplement which provides sodium as Sodium Chloride, TriSodium Phosphate and Sodium R-Lipoate, which work together to maintain the optimal metabolism of sodium to prevent dehydration (a decrease in total body water without an equal reduction in total body sodium) and prevent volume depletion (a loss of body water and sodium resulting in decreased extracellular fluid volume).

MetaSalt is more than just a salt capsule it is a high-performance ELECTROLYTE complex with Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium as Krebs Cycle Minerals. It is also a potent antioxidant complex with Selenium and Zinc.Potassium, magnesium and calcium are macrominerals which complement each other for regular heart rhythm, transmission of nerve impulses, energy production and muscular contraction.

Each serving of MetaSalt (two capsules) provides 330 mg of sodium (750 mg of sodium chloride (salt) and 80 mg of TriSodium Phosphate. It also provides the latest technology in the delivery of potassium (85.2 mg), calcium (25.2 mg), and magnesium (12 mg) in a perfect ratio of (7:2:1) chelated as Krebs Cycle Carriers, for optimum absorption and utilization. These superior organic mineral carriers are in the form of equal amounts of aspartates, succinates, malates, fumarates, and alpha-ketoglutarates. MetaSalt also provides chelated antioxidants: Selenium (as selenomethionine) and zinc (as zinc methionine). These organic minerals will not irritate the stomach, furthermore, standardized extracts of deglycyrrhizinated licorice, ginger and peppermint will have a general toning and calming influence on the stomach and intestines to optimize performance.

MetaSalt is designed to prevent hyponatremia, minimize muscle cramps or heat prostration due to excessive perspiration. Sodium imbalance (hyponatremia) usually occurs during long or ultra-distance events in the heat, but may also be seen in events as short as 3 to 4 hours. Sodium imbalance may either occur due to excessive water intake, or due to excessive sweat production and sweat sodium concentration.

Sweat contains between 2.25 to 3.5 grams of salt per liter, and the rate of perspiration in a long hot race can easily average 1 liter per hour. So for a 10 hour race one could lose approximately 22 to 35 grams of salt. So, replacing water without the appropriate amount of salt can result in hyponatremia which can seriously hamper performance and well being.

Optimum intake of sodium can vary from 300 mg per hour to 1 gram per hour, based on sweat production and sweat sodium concentration. One capsule of MetaSalt provides 165 mg of sodium. Makes it easy to control sodium intake without ingesting excess sugar (sucrose, fructose, galactose or glucose) provided by sports drinks and gels.

For instance a leading sports drink contains 140 mg of sodium per 8 fl oz serving. Say you need 600 mg of sodium per hour, then you have to consume 44 fl oz of that sports drink which will also provide 76 oz of sugar. Excess sugar creates a hypertonic solution which will actually draw the fluid from your body into your guts for absorption thus temporarily dehydrating you–detrimental to performance!

What is Krebs Cycle Carrier? Krebs Cycle represents the joining of fat, carbs, and protein into one common energy producing pathway that is responsible for extracting energy from food - ATP. The Krebs cycle contains carriers that are intermediates and keep the process going continually. MetaSalt provides Potassium, Calcium, and Magnesium which are complexed with Krebs Cycle Carriers (superior organic mineral carriers), providing readily bioavailable forms of these minerals as well as carriers which the body recognizes and knows how to process. The result is increased ENERGY! Other products provide only potassium, however, in the form of potassium chloride, or at best as citrate.

Take MetaSalt, consume the required amount of water and CARBO-PRO and you are all set with hydration, calories, and sodium to maintain peak levels of performance.
Take two capsules per hour with a full glass of water. During extended activity in extreme conditions you may take four to six capsules per hour with at least 16 oz of water.
