Electrolyte Plus is a blend of essential electrolytes; Sodium, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium. Electrolytes help provide the electrical energy necessary for many functions within the human body, including nerve impulse transmission and myofibril contractions. When exercising, these nutrients are generally lost through sweating, especially when exercising in hot weather; excessive loss of electrolytes can severely impede performance.
The addition of electrolytes to carbohydrates can help maintain salt levels in the body and maintain proper hydration and enhance the absorption of water during physical exercise. A loss of just 2% of body weight through dehydration can dramatically impede and negatively affect your physical performance. This also contains 6mg of magnesium which can contribute to electrolyte balance.
Electrolyte Plus is suitable for anyone taking part in intense, physical exercise where there is abundant fluid loss.
As a food supplement consume 1 tablet with approx 500 ml of water every hour of intense exercise.

I'm a keen cyclist, and my activity level leads to really painful periods of cramp, a problem that these tablets solve nicely. I take one before I leave, one when I get back and if I've really caned it, another one before going to bed. For me, they're essential the price is reasonable too.Goes Well With:Water, juice. . . .whatever you choose to wash 'em down with really!
A good alternative to some of those expensive salt products on the market. Great value for money.Goes Well With:Foods and liquids.
I decided to give this a go after I suggested to my friend he should use it as he would suffer cramps after long road bike rides. I myself am a sweater and a salty one to boot, especially after a hard 2 hour footy training session or good gym session. Reading other reviews are quite funny. I’ll be honest; I’m not saying this is a miracle pill but I feel it’s an additional good supplement to take if partaking in long bouts of cardio. I’ve definitely noticed a lesser salt taste after training, which is good. Obviously good nutrition to aid recovery is a must, but these help replenish the lost electrolytes that shakes or food might not necessarily do. Now for the tablet size, shape & taste; no problems at all, the shape is like a flatter version of the EAA tabs so no problem taking at all. For the review that said keeping in the mouth you will taste the salt! Seriously why would you do that? Take with a drink and you have no taste at all so that was a silly comment! Goes Well With:Cardio, Plenty of water, hard work
I get very dehydrated after surfing for between 2 - 3 hours a session & I don't like the idea of drinking sugary sports drinks. I take one of these for every hour surfed & I know they work because I don't feel like death the next day!Goes Well With:Exercise
Good after my sprints or running.
Electrolytes Plus have for to be the best electrolytes I have ever tried and I have tried powders that you mix and other tablets but none have been as effective as what MyProtein sell, these are excellent and easy to take no messing about and they do what they are meant to do. Would recommend these to anyone and will def be ordering these again
I have been suffering from dehydration for some time. The answer to it, according to all the sources I investigated, was to replace my dwindling electrolytes. However this apparently meant boosting my intake of sugar and salt, and I have little taste for either, and certainly lack a sweet tooth. I was might relieved and pleased to find this product online, and ordered it immediately. Although it is only days since I began dosing with it, it seems to have begun to make a real difference. I'm very grateful for that, and will continue with it for as long as I have to.Goes Well With:All my other vitamin supplements, and a nice cup of tea!
I currently have low blood pressure and needed to increase by salt and minerals intake whilst I'm away on holiday. We have just returned from our holidays taking a Electrolytes Plus table daily and enjoyed the holiday.. Myprotein.com was recommended by a colleague ,I would recommend your web site and your excellent/prompt service you provided.
I recommend Electrolytes Plus wholeheartedly. I used to have races blighted by cramps then I discovered these. I managed a whole marathon yesterday without even a hint of cramp. For salty sweaters like me electrolyte drinks just don't replace enough salt. Just follow the instructions and wash down with plenty of water/sports drink. Even if you're mouth is dry and you have to chew them, the salty taste is no worse than an olive.
I have problems retaining salt, so supplementation is essential for me and I get through a lot of it. Electrolytes Plus is perfect for keeping me hydrated, and at an excellent price. I didn't know how many stars to put for "Taste" as these are pills, but gave it 4 as while unpleasant if you don't get them down at once, they do just taste of salt, so they're nowhere near as bad as most pills for that. Recommended.
"I really rate these tablets, and much easier to consume than the powder. Being a distance runner I would often finish a race with terrible headaches and cramps due to an electrolyte imbalance, but I found that these have largely put a stop to that. I often premix them with water and squash to make my own 'isotonic' drinks and whilst there is invariably some residue (the caking agent?) remaining at the bottom of the bottle, I don't find this a problem, especially at this price! Ideally one would take the required amount about two hours before the exercise, to give time for the kidneys to process the salts. I also thing that the recommended dosage is a bit arbitrary; the amount you should take depends on your sweat profile and how much salt you lose in sweat. Overall, however, my favourite MP product by far!"
"Cheap, effective, convenient. Someone said these were hard to swallow, I disagree. Just wash them down with some water. Much simpler than the powder version."
"I used to get really bad headaches and sickness after things like an hour long Body Attack class, and no matter how much water i drank before, during and after, it wouldn't help. Anything high impact cardio and i'd really suffer. Since talking these its really helped. The pills are however a quite odd shape, and this makes them hard to swallow. sometimes they can jammed and i have to drink loads to get them to pass.... They dont taste nice when they start fizzing in your mouth due to constantly gagging them back up!! Over all though, they;re really good at what they claim to do."
I used to suffer horribly from cramps and headaches during and after playing sport. Since taking these pills (i normally take 2 before i play rugby and 1 after) i haven't suffered once from cramp. Also incredibly good at curing hangovers!
I do a lot of running and require the electrolytes as my recovery drink did not provide enough. These tablets are great except the way they are shaped. They are shaped like the cut out from the middle of a giant polo and the edges are very pointy which cause them to hurt when swallowed. Not sure why they couldnt be the same shape as a normal pill but other than that they are very good
"Taking electrolytes is essential during exercise - I found i was getting severe chest pains and had my heart checked out - nothing wrong- then i read an article in a running magazine - also, during a race i passed a fit looking young guy who had collapsed and if you'd looked at me and him you would have thought i would have been the more likely to collapse but i had taken an electrolyte drink with me - it was a very warm day - close to the summer solstice."
"I mountain bike. I used to get headaches after rides, even after drinking 3 litres of water during the ride and a litre after. I discovered my headaches were caused by lack of electrolytes. I tried salts in my water which worked well but tasted sh1t. I use the powder in my Camelbak, and If I start to feel a headache coming on, I pop one of these badd-bois. Best taken as a pill as they don't dissolve in water easily, use the powder for that. I wonder now if all headaches are due to lack of electrolytes, It's pointless drinking water if it doesn't contain any electrolytes, even if you drink water constantly, you will still dehydrate."
*edit* \nthats £33.75 every month... not 4 1/2 lol
at my muay thai gym they sell sachets of electrolytes for £1.50 each.. that would cost me at least £7.50 per week.. thats £33.75 every 4 1/2 months.. which is how long this bottle would last on the same training routine.. and it costs £6. \n\nmyprotein.co.uk you are amazing.
"Good value for money, helps stops the cramps, tablet is a little sharp and can be difficult to swallow."
Pain in the gym can be just something as simple as lack
"GOT THIS PRODUCT A FEW MONTHS AGO TO FIND OUT IF IT WAS JUST AS GOOD AS LUCOZADE HYDROACTIVE-AND IT WAS. HAVE RECOMMENDED IT TO ALOT OF CARDIO JUNKIES AND NOW THEY SWEAR BY IT. GIVE IT A TRY, DOESN'T COST MUCH, WORKS FOR ME & I TRAIN 9-11 TIMES A WEEK."
