The Electrolyte Powder is made up of the essential electrolytes; Sodium, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium. These help to provide the electrical energy necessary for many functions within the human body, including nerve impulse transmission and myofibril contractions. When exercising, some of these nutrients may be lost through sweating.
Suitable for anyone taking part in intense, physical exercise where there is abundant fluid loss.

I think this is an essential - especially if you sweat as much as I do (Niagara Falls of the forehead anyone?). Mix it with bog standard Robinson's squash and you effectively have a cheaper and better version of many of the 'Isotonic' drinks on the market. Also great for hang-overs I should add...
I couldn't agree more with the comment below. Product states it contains potassium but there's no dose available. I used my fitness pal which said it contained 60, when the rda is 4700, it's not even worth taking. It teaches you to read the descriptions properly, this is essentially just table salt. You'd be better off using pink himayalan salt to make sole.Goes Well With:Fish & chips
Didn't notice any changes using this product, no positive ones nor negative ones. My guess is, might as well add some more salt to your dinner. I think it's poor advertising that nutrition info on the bag doesn't state the amount of potassium or magnesium. Could well be an unnoticeable amount. Maybe I'll just fill my table salt jar with it ;)Goes Well With:Boiled egg?
This Electrolyte powder is awesome! There is a salty taste however that's the nature of electrolytes and when mixed with orange juice it is unnoticeable.
"Great product. Those that say it doesn't mix are using too much powder, from personal experience 1 gram mix well even in cool water (which has a lower saturation point). As for the taste, most think it's disgusting on here but for some reason I have no issue with the taste-all electrolyte powders taste the same anyway. If using squash that's quite sour this powder actually makes the taste more neutral and easier to drink. Must buy for those that sweat a lot during exercise, I think electrolytes are more essential than protein itself. Nearly. No side-effects whatsoever!"
Sweat loss means loss of salts (electrolytes). Salts are required for efficient performance. This product has the right ingredients (i'm no chemist but I did my homework), mixes well and tastes as it should (it's salt, of course it's salty). Apparently an average sweat loss per hour is 0.5-2.0L. Apparently an average litter of sweat lost has 2.6g of salts. I know I sweat more than those numbers, and I know that I get headaches if I don't hydrate properly, and by that I mean adding electrolytes to my drinks, whether during or after the workout. I haven't nailed down the amounts I should use because i'm scared to add 5g of salts for every hour that I work out, and I know that the food I'll eat will likely make up for a lot of the salts lost in the first place, but so far I've been adding a little scoop (the one that comes with the bag) in every bike bottle I drink and this already goes a long way. Those bottles are 0.75L. I usually go through 1 bottle per hour when on the bike. More when working out in the (warm) gym doing circuits. Anecdotally, i also put 40-50g of sugars in each bottle (equal volume mix of fructose, palatinose and maltodextrin).
this product arrived on time. it is also well packaged. i mix this with bolero fruit powder to combat the awful taste. i find taking this combats dehydration therefore my nightly leg cramps have all but gone. the cost worked out against shop bought hydration products is laughable.buy this product and mix it with fruit powder yourself and save £££££. Goes Well With:Bolero fruit powder. available gluten / sugar free
I must say, that I was quite surprise how effective this product is. The first time when I tried it, I accidentally mixed it with my BCAA :D but to be honest, I've never had so much energy and endurance! Had an hour and a half circuit program with weights, and at the end, I still felt, that I have more energy and can do more. Don't really know if it's okay to mix the BCAA powder with the electrolytes, but it's an awesome combination :) I've tried them on their own, as well, and I'm quite happy with them. I don't have any more cramps :) Goes Well With:Orange juice BCAA Powder (flavoured) Ayran (yoghurt, mixed with water and instead of salt, you can add the electrolytes) - but I would't drink it during workout.
Superb product,mixes well,yes it tastes a little salty but it does compose of various salts and minerals so its to be expected. one level scoop of the micro scoop provided mixed well into to a pint of Robinsons Lemon Barley made the drink slightly salty but nowhere near as unpleasant as some of the drama queens on her would have you believe. Now completely cramp free whilst working my way through various crossfit circuits,beats the likes of powerade lucozade hands down! Goes Well With:fruit squash.
This product is a god send for me, I used to get really bad headaches after a morning workout. Without exageration, after the first time i used this the headaches have stopped and i dont feel as sluggish. Great product, if you sweat loads like me then id seriously recommend this product. BE WARNED: only use a small amount with juice, it does taste very salty. All round spot on. Goes Well With:Juice
I'm sweating quit alot during my training so I thought these electrolytes could be benefitable for me. But I'm actually not feeling any difference at all. Maybe it would be better to review this product during the summer, where it is more hot? Or maybe it's just better to consume during cardio (I'm doing strength exercise/bodybuilding)? Anyways, it didn't have any effect on me (not something I could feel). Goes Well With:BCAA powder and other amino acids
I suffer from cramp in my hands, fingers, thighs, calves and feet, especially after intense exercise. I've tried various things in the past, but Myprotein's Electrolyte powder seems to do the trick with a 100% success rate so far! I have given the product a 4 because the taste isn't its best attribute, and it needs to be mixed in something you don't mind drinking. I currently have it in a cup of fruit tea made up of 500ml with cold water, 2 tsps of sugar and 1/4 tsp of electrolyte powder added.Goes Well With:Cranberry & Blood Orange Tea.
In hot weather I was suffering with dehydration, I was taking on water, but forgot about salt replacement, this does the job. You don't need a big amount. It tastes horrible. It works.Goes Well With:Ribeana
After doing lots of cardio and weights I found I was tired and my energy was flagging so after research i found it's because when you sweat you loose a lot of the salts etc in your body so I bought this product. I use it after my morning workout and then in afternoon and i have noticed my energy levels are maintained as normalGoes Well With:Mix in protein shake
Great product, keeps you properly hydrated. If you're used to fruity electrolyte drinks, the taste may be a bit strange and even unpleasant at the beggining, but I actually learnt to like it. Also, great value!
These salts taste salty... Who would have thought. As per previous reviews you need so little so the pouch goes a early long way. It's seen my wife and I though 6 months of distance training, cross training after football / cycling hydration.Goes Well With:Apple / Orange squash.
great post workout with my protein, can't taste it at all when mixed with protein only slightly when with water only. keeps my energy up too, it gives what your body needs after intense training - correct essential salt levels
Bought this as I always used to get headaches after particularly sweaty workouts like spin classes, so someone suggested I may benefit from adding electrolyte powder to my workout drink. Yes it's a bit salty but I just add a bit of squash and I actually quite like the taste, and as long as I keep properly hydrated throughout my workout my headaches are usually kept at bay.
I have been running long distances (10-15 miles) for the past few months, and always ended up with tight muscles or cramp in the evenings after exercise. I use this powder along with the electrolyte plus capsules and haven't had cramp since. For my longer runs, I mix the powder into my water bottle that I take with me. The taste is quite salty, but the powder is very effective a staving off cramp. Goes Well With:Water
This certainly does as it describes. i wanted to know though if there is actually any potassium and magnesium in this as the nutritional info appears to suggest not. im designing my diet to consist of the right ammount of all nutrients and hope for some clarity on this as i have three scoops a day
