As a 24 Hour endurance mountain bike racer living in the desert, I am sometimes required to train in temperatures exceeding 105 degrees. Because of the extreme duration of training rides, races and temperatures, cramping is always a major concern. Until recently, I used a common electrolyte supplement capsule, which I broke apart and added to my liquid fuels. The results were okay, but the process of breaking apart the capsules was a hassle and the contents settled in the bottle unless constantly shaken. Through Interbike, I was immediately interested in the elete product. The concept was sound and as most good products are, quite simple — a highly potent electrolyte supplement, virtually untasteable and easy to mix in single dosage packets. Without the opportunity to experiment with the product before a national 24 Hour race (usually not a good idea), I used elete instead of my normal electrolyte supplement. With elete as a part of my nutritional plan, I had my first 24 Hour solo victory! Cramping was a non-issue and my pit crew liked elete because of its ease of use. elete is now a permanent part of my training and racing program. The results speak for themselves. When every advantage counts, count on elete. I do! I am looking forward to even more success with elete next season.Tagged in: Mountain Biking

elete IS STILL THE BEST EVER! Many, many people ask me about cramping and dehydration and the key is elete. I don't want to stop using it. It is just incredible how it helps your body!Tagged in: Biathlon and Triathlon

This past summer in Kandahar was particularly hot. It was not uncommon for the temperatures to reach as high as 60+ Celsius (140+ F), with a daily average being mid 50+C (130+ F). Coupled with the fact that our members and soldiers were wearing and carrying well 60-75 pounds of equipment and weapons. The stifling heat was certainly enough to make any endeavour an exercise of pain and discomfort.
Further to this, our area of operation experienced a shortage of water supplements. Both CivPol members and soldiers were rationed in their supplement usage, to only be distributed to elements "leaving and working outside the wire". The receipt of elete supplement packets at the height of the summer season, was an unexpected but welcome surprise.
I know that you probably receive many letters of thanks, from soldiers and civilian personnel working in the two theatres of conflict, Afghanistan and Iraq. But I wanted to add my personal "thank you".
Although I had never heard of elete prior to receiving the care packages, I am now a true believer. I can honestly say, that elete supplements helped and saved both myself, my contingent members and elements of the Force Protection Unit here at the PRT, while we were out doing our jobs.
Thank you for your support and the generous donation of product to the folks here at the KPRT. You certainly made this past summer more bearable and those packets of elete, which remain, will continue to assist the new rotation of CivPol and military personnel, who continue the good work here in Kandahar.
Yours very sincerely and respectfullyTagged in: Military

I was on a recent hike with one of our local clubs. We gained over 4,000 feet elevation and I started cramping up at the summit. I was really concerned about getting off that mountain. After all, I had a full quart of Gatorade®* in my water bladder. A fellow hiker had some elete with him and gave me a drink, probably about a half pint. I kid you not when I tell you that the cramps instantly went away and I was able to continue on. I firmly believe in this drink and will use it from now on.Tagged in: General Activities
I do a lot of travelling around the world – a typical year takes me to 10 countries or so and all sorts of environments, from the hot and humid southeast Asia to cold Chicago winters. And now elete is part of my standard arsenal when I travel.
I first heard about elete as an electrolyte replacement from first responders for the Haiti Earthquake and how first responders didn't have to suck down sports drinks to stay hydrated and active. When I had went to Singapore and Malaysia in December of 2009, I was drinking 7-8 litres of water a day through my Camelbak. At the end of the day, I felt horrible and lethargic. Between 90+ temps and 90% humidity, I was in bad shape.
Flash forward to April. I went to Vietnam and faced the same type of weather conditions. This time I was drinking 2 litres of elete-treated water and felt in better shape. I was outdoors longer, felt like I had more energy and wasn't as bad as I was in Singapore/Malaysia. That little dropper bottle of elete had helped me out big time. The best part was that I could avoid sports drinks like G_______ and the sheer amount of sugar that's in them. Typically when I'm dehydrated, sugar is the last thing I need because I just feel even worse after drinking them."Tagged in: General Activities

Thank you! I’m the drummer that contacted you shortly before the end of 2008 seeking relief from the most painful cramps in my thighs and occasionally in my handsand forearms that could be imagined. I’m a sceptic, but I was desperate for some help. I purchased elete and began hydrating early in the afternoon on the day of my performance. Much to my delight and amazement NO CRAMPS! None during the 4+ hour gig, and no unwelcome awakening out of a sound sleep or next morning leg cramps either. I wish I’d known of elete long ago. Believe me, I’ll never go on stage without it again. Many thanks and my best regards.Tagged in: General Activities

July 2003: 15 kids ended up on IV transfusion after trekking through Wyoming. Dehydration was rampant from mild to severe. Multiple youth were taken off the handcart trail and shuttled to base camps with heat exhaustion. July 2006: average trail temperature in Wyoming was 102 degrees. 260 teenagers pulled handcarts 27 miles. elete was in every water container. Two kids dropped with exhaustion. No IV’s were administered. No dehydration. Youth and adults are solid on elete™. The difference between Gatorade®* and elete is incomparable. Our experience is phenomenal!Tagged in: General Activities
I used elete Electrolyte Add-In samples again in a 75-mile race on Saturday and qualified for the Empire State Games. I'm only a cat 4 and was racing against 1's and 2's. Couldn't have done it if I had cramped up. This stuff is awesome. I told all my team mates to order some-but I'm not telling any of the other teams about it!Tagged in: General Activities
I use elete in my water, straight up. I’m not a big fan of sweet crap in my bottles. It has helped me from bonking, especially in the Arizona heat. I use it practically every weekend and would be worried to go without. That’s my 2 cents. I love the stuff.Tagged in: General Activities
