With the test kit from our partner BESTZEIT you can determine your individual salt or sodium losses in sweat.
Electrolytes, and in particular sodium as an important component of salt, influence energy levels, hydration, cramp susceptibility, heart and brain function and have a preventive effect on hyponatremia. Particularly during prolonged exercise over several hours, it is important that you adequately replace your salt and sodium loss in order to prevent performance losses.
Why should you address the issue of fluid and salt losses?
To be able to maintain performance over several hours
To regenerate optimally
To develop an individual nutrition strategy
This is why you should know your salt or sodium losses
Sweat composition varies widely from athlete to athlete. The sodium content ranges between 200mg/l and 2300mg/l sweat. Sweat is 99% water and primarily used for thermoregulation. Sodium is the most important electrolyte and the main component of sweat.
Sports physiology is constantly gaining new insights and enables an increasingly individualised knowledge and recommendations on a wide range of influencing factors. SPONSER® deems the rapid progress in measuring individual sweat and salt losses as a relevant topic for sports nutrition due to the strongly varying individual values. Such measurement can be an interesting and potentially performance-enhancing tool for competitive athletes.
