The NASA-developed electrolyte, liquid-concentrate, drink additive is far superior for: 1. Increasing endurance by over 20% more than any other NASA-tested formula. 2. Combating the symptoms (cramps, muscle fatigue, light-headedness etc.) caused by heavy sweating, dehydration and electrolyte loss. 3. Protecting the body from overheating in high heat settings and times of intense exertion.
The sugar-free goes into your bloodstream more rapidly to protect quickly from dehydration symptoms AND protect you longer!
