Developed in partnership with world-renowned sport nutritionists, these fully recyclable (15 ml) cartridges are designed to work exclusively with your Eligo Spile and are packed with all of your essential electrolytes (sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium). The concentrate mixes seemlessly with the water in your reservoir at a ratio of 1:66 to deliver the equivalent 1L of electrolyte per cartridge.
Why are electrolytes needed?
The average amount of sweat lost for athletes ranges from 0.5 to 2.0 liters (up to 3.5 liters per hour in a warm environment). During longer bouts of exercise, this could mean 15-30% less sodium in the body that is available to maintain fluid balance.
Electrolytes, primarily Sodium, are required for the nervous system to effectively communicate with various parts of the body. Without proper levels of sodium, the electrical signals in nerve cells cannot be established or transmitted.
Electrolytes are also necessary for proper muscle function. Muscles require constant, low level electrical stimulation from the nervous system to maintain form and proper function.
