We’ve been using elete CitriLyte in our drinks to combat the dreaded leg cramp. Because let’s face it, leg cramps suck. Although I seem to have my method for dealing with them (I have to pull myself out up and out of bed to push my feet against the floor or wall to get them to release, but it works every time!) I’d much rather bypass them all together.
Staying hydrated is important, especially during the hot summer months. We’ve been logging a lot more saddle time since moving back to Portland. And although I’d prefer it all to be on single track, during the week we do most of our rides from the house, whether its commuting, riding to the local bike park or nature park, which means hardtails and road bikes. On the upside, I’m riding bikes every day. Keeping hydrated and leg cramps away becomes more of a challenge, and although many of the prepared electrolyte drinks or powders seem to work well, often I’ll just add a bit of concentrated lemon juice and a few drops of Stevia to my water bottle with a bit of ice, then add some elete CitriLyte to transform it into a performance drink.
It’s formulated to make functional electrolyte water without calories, sugars, gluten, preservatives or any other nasty stuff, and the 240ml bottle makes up to 80 servings. Being a concentrate, our bottle of elete CitiLytle has lasted quite a while; it’s far more affordable than the other options in the pantry.
It also is compatible with your hydration bladder. Unlike other additives and powers that leave sticky residue and can be difficult to clean, elete doesn’t leave gunk behind.
