Electrolytes are crucial to your training. But nobody wants a sugary sports drink with minimal amount of actual performance enhancing nutrients. This was the problem facing us. So we developed Lytes, an all natural plant-based electrolyte blend designed to replenish lost nutrients and fuel intense training sessions.
Every Brazilian Jiu Jitsu athlete knows that you sweat a lot during training. Some athletes may even lose up to 5 pounds in one training session, sometimes more. When you sweat, you sweat out a lot more than just water. Electrolytes that are crucial to your cell communications are also secreted causing cramps and performance to drop off. Without getting into the nitty gritty details, electrolytes help send the messages to your muscles. A slight drop in electrolytes will cause decreases in performance. Think about when you cut weight and your muscles are so slow to fire that running is impossible.
In this state of dehydration, water alone will not replenish these electrolytes because it simply does not have enough of these minerals. Vitamins & Minerals such as Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Phosphorus, Vitamin C, Zinc, Chromium, and Calcium, specifically formulated in ratios to help endurance and mixed sport athletes like us.
We'll talk more about other components of Lytes and what they actually do in a later post.
