Joel Jameson - Triathlete
So Lawrence was the location in Kansas and it was 24 degrees at 6am before the swim! The water was warm and the day was heating up. This was a day not to be lacking the essential electrolytes. I used Elete on my food the 2 days before the race day to ensure I wasn't low on magnesium, sodium and potassium mainly before I even started the race. I had Elete in both my bottles on the bike mixed in with energy drink and you can't even taste the Elete. It was perfect. It didn't upset my stomach and kept cramp at bay. I had neat Elete in a small bottle on the run just in case cramp decided to rear its ugly head but with the Elete taken on the bike it never happened... I'll definitley be using elete in future races...
Hope thats ok...
The result was what I wanted but the swim was pretty rough and cost me a lot of time... too much to claw back over the 70.3 distance. ... But having said that the elete definitley helped and I'll be using it in 2 weeks at Coeur D'alene Ironman...

In the last 15 years I have worked as a nutritionist across a range of professional sports including International Rugby & Cricket, Olympic level road and track cycling and more recently Athletics and flat water Canoeing for athletes preparing for the London 2012 Olympics. During this time I have been exposed to and trialled a number of products aimed at assisting hydration in the wide variety of climatic conditions faced by globe trotting athletes. elete electrolytes are by far my current top choice for a natural and adaptable solution to the crucial issue of hydration. Naturally sourced and without any additives or unwanted calories this provides a versatile tool for ensuring minerals are replenished and fluid balance is optimized in a range of conditions.Tagged in: Rugby, Cricket, Cycling, Athletics

Ben Reynolds- Irish Sprint Hurdles Champion
Whenever I train, I need to know that my body has all it needs to work at 100% consistently and efficiently. Using elete in my drinks gives me a noticeable boost in how energetic and awake I feel during my sessions as well as through the day. It also allows me to stay optimally hydrated without having to consume large quantities of fluid, meaning I can stay lighter and more powerful during sessions. Highly recommended.Tagged in: Athletics

Michael J. Onkels, D.C. 2009 U.S. Cycling National Champion
I just wanted to let you know that I just won my first U.S. National Road Racing Championship in Louisville, KY this week using elete electrolyte drops. It was the first time I used them and I thought you would be happy to know that I really feel it helped me stave off cramps in the final few miles! Over the past couple of years I have developed cramps during intense exercise more frequently. So, the morning of the National Championship Road Race I grabbed my elete Electrolyte drops and added them to all of my bottles. Everything was on the line that day, and I was looking not only for any advantage but also to avoid any potential trouble!
As the race began, the usually warm, muggy Louisville temperatures had given way to a quite mild 70 degrees. Cramping was the last thing on my mind at that point, but with 16 miles to go in the 60-mile race against the best in the country, I attacked. My legs felt great and the miles flew by! Up and down the rolling terrain. Around the curves and through the corners I raced. All that stood between victory and me was a couple of hills. The race official drove up to me and notified me that I had a 50-second lead. I turned up the last big hill when it happened. Both quads cramped simultaneously. Panic set in as I thought I might lose the lead. A couple of light pedal strokes, a quick drink of water and with elete and my legs loosened up—a close call indeed. It’s times like that you appreciate taking the small steps towards victory. Racing up to the finish line it finally hit me when I heard the announcer say, "Here comes your new National Champion, Mike Onkels!" Thanks elete for helping me achieve my win!Tagged in: Cycling

I started using elete in November 2010 during my winter training programme. I train 6 days a week, and I compete internationally over 400 hurdles. Once you get to a certain level in the sport of athletics, there is only so much training and hard work that you can do and to gain a competitive advantage over the other athletes. You have to look to other areas such as nutrition and lifestyle.
I drink elete throughout the day whether I am training or not, and it is a simple, yet highly effective product , which helps me to recover faster between sessions and provides me with the optimum hydration levels and energy I need to get the most out of my running, lifting, and technical sessions. Prior to using elete I had suffered from muscular cramps during heavy training sessions and often had to cut sessions short, but this problem has now been eradicated. During heavy lactic tolerance sessions, I get a terrible feeling of nausea due to the lactic acid, which my body produces, and often find it hard to stomach sugary electrolyte drinks such as Lucozade® The neutral taste of elete is, therefore, a more pleasant and natural way to remain hydrated during training. The tablet option is also available, which I use when I am short of time.
On the whole, I believe that hydration is of massive importance to any individual whether you are competing in sport or not. I feel that elete has allowed me to train to my maximum during sessions, recover faster between sessions, and ensured that my energy levels have remained high throughout the day. I intend to continue using elete throughout the season, and I am optimistic as to the benefit it will have when I come to race over 400 hurdles in the 2011 season.Tagged in: Track and Field
Tracy & Lanny Barnes Olympic Biathletes
Lanny (U.S. Champion) and Tracy (3rd Place, U.S. Nationals) Barnes, Olympian biathletes, North American and U.S. National Championship:elete™ Electrolyte Add-In has been a huge contributing factor to our success. Your body needs the important electrolytes elete™ has to perform and compete at a high level. Not only are elete™ electrolytes important in racing, but training as well. It helps to keep our muscles from cramping during exercise as well as speeds recovery by replenishing important electrolytes. With the demanding training and racing schedule we have in a biathlon, we use elete™ electrolytes to keep us performing at our best.
Re CitriLyte:- We use the original elete just about every day in training. It's almost a staple for us. No matter the temperature (hot or cold), when you are pushing your body to the limits you need to replace the lost electrolytes that you are losing and elete™ does that. It helps us to avoid fatigue and steer clear of any cramping. Other electrolyte replacements are too sugary and often unnecessary during training. We'd rather be getting those calories from quality foods than empty liquid calories. We were immediately hooked to the CitriLyte. Elete had the right idea when it added essential elements that your body needs to their already great product. The CitriLyte has a great subtle flavour and is perfect for any athlete looking to perform.Tagged in: Biathlon and Triathlon
Sandra Tomlinson, 2005 World Championship, 24-Hour Women's Solo Mountain Bike Racing:
The proof of the product is in the results. I participated in the Southern Lights 24-7 at Athens, GA as a solo female…First place women’s solo with three laps on the second place female and 4th place with the male soloists. elete water helps me to achieve this level of performance: First, by providing the necessary electrolytes needed to perform at this level and to keep me hydrated. Second, it has no taste like other sweet beverages that make you feel dehydrated and thirsty; therefore, I feel satisfied. I require less fluid consumption than I previously used to now that I use elete water.Tagged in: Mountain Biking
Erol U. Chief Physiotherapist at a U.K Championship Football Club
The elete water has gone down very well with my players. I have 3-4 players who suffer from cramp during games of which one has tried every possible supplement and homeopathic mixture (vinegar, honey and hot water). His pattern of cramp was always kicking in at the 60- minute mark and never suffered from cramp in training.
Since using elete none have reported any symptoms of cramp and it seems to have reduced the fear of cramp during evening games, which for some reason worried a couple of them probably down to previous experiences. The more symptomatic player has now stopped taking all other recommendations and is now just using elete.
I will continue to use elete throughout the season…I have also recommended elete to a few of my colleagues…
