I’ve gotta admit I was pretty skeptic about this stuff when I first heard of it, and even tried it. Turns out I was in for a great surprise. The concept of a spray electrolyte, as opposed to a capsule or dissolvable, is something I really like the thought of. I just figured if it was something that wasn’t very feasible, or it would have been produced by one of the major companies by now. I can’t figure out why it hasn’t been more prevalent on the market for years but Bfit Labs has really come out with a great product here.
I’ve tried just about everything at this point…capsules, water soluble, gels, gummies, bars, and the list goes on. Yes, most of them work fine but there has been a downside to everything. Such as the need to carry your hydration in the case of dissolvables, carrying water or restricted to an aide station for capsules, or the occasional queasiness with more solid options. I’ve also had my sweat dissolve capsules, hydration bottles leak, and a hell of a time opening things like gels or bars without stopping. That is one of the main reasons I like the Bfit Electrolyte Spray so much. Lightweight, easy to carry, easy to use, and you don’t need any additional water to get it down. The spray form also allows for quicker absorption time…which means less chance of cramping due to diminished electrolytes Oral absorption gets the product (whatever it may be) into the blood stream much more quickly than swallowing something and having it absorbed in the stomach. Another huge plus is that you can gradually administer the electrolytes (a spray every few miles) over the course of the run instead of all at once (swallowing a capsule). There is also very little chance of running out of electrolytes while on a run with the Bfit Spray…one bottle has up to 150 sprays and 6 sprays is considered a dose. This isn’t to say on longer runs you won’t need to bring something for calorie replacement but a nice even electrolyte supply has been something that I have come to greatly appreciate.
Like with most things in running, nutrition preferences and what works can be highly variable from person to person. What works for some people won’t work for others and that is why there are so many nutrition companies and a huge variety of products. I always recommend that people try out as many brands and compositions (gels, sprays, gummies,capsules, etc.) as possible to figure out which products, and combination of products, works best for you.
Overall Bfit Lab’s Rapid Electrolyte Spray is something I highly recommend and it’s a product I carry on almost all my mid to long distance runs. Check out Bfit Labs for more info and to give it a try!
itsallaboutthemilesmilesmilesAlright, so after a full week of trying out@bfit_labs I can officially say it is for sure a game changer in my training so far. I really enjoyed it at the Giants race Sunday. I didn’t feel the need to chug water at every water station (just a few sips and go) and I didn’t have to drink any of the electrolytes the race provided. I felt completely hydrated the whole run and I didn’t feel sick after like I do if I drink too much power aid or Gatorade or whatever the race provides on that day. And it’s also quick and easy, spray and go. So I can officially say I love it and this will be what I use for my training to CIM😍😍😍
WHY OUR ELECTROLYTES IN FALL AND WINTER!
Cooler fall and winter weather is just around the corner. And adults and kids will soon be partaking in their favorite fall andwinter sports: football, soccer, hockey, running, biking, skiing, snow-shoeing, and good, old-fashioned sledding. But in addition to remembering to bundle up for the cold weather, hydration is another important consideration in winter.
We don’t often associate cold-weather exercise with dehydration. The body doesn’t get as hot, and sweat evaporates more rapidly in the cold air. Thus, we’re tricked into thinking we aren’t losing fluids as rapidly.
Dehydration is still a risk when playing in the snow, albeit, for different reasons than summer exercise.
What Causes Dehydration During Winter Months?
In cold weather, the body’s thirst response is diminished (by up to 40 percent even when dehydrated)[i]. This happens because our blood vessels constrict when we’re cold to prevent blood from flowing freely to the extremities. (If you’ve ever had cold hands in winter, you know the feeling.) This enables the body to conserve heat by drawing more blood to its core.
But because of this, the body is fooled into thinking it’s properly hydrated, e.g. you don’t feel as thirsty and your body doesn’t conserve water. Thus, in cold weather, athletes are less likely to drink water voluntarily, and additionally, their kidneys aren’t signaled by hormones to conserve water and urine production increases, a condition call cold-induced urine diuresis.
So diminished thirst response and increased urine production are two contributing factors. Yet, there are several others that can lead to winter dehydration, including:
Wearing extra clothing. Heavy jackets, long underwear and other pieces of warm clothing help your body conserve heat. But the added weight is one factor that makes the body work between 10 and 40 percent harder.[ii] By working harder, the body produces more sweat, contributing to fluid loss.
Increased respiratory fluid loss.[iii] In cold weather, we lose more fluids through respiratory water loss. For example, when you can see your own breath, that’s actually water vapor that your body is losing. The colder the temperature and the more intense the exercise, the more vapor you lose when you breathe.
Sweat evaporates more quickly in cold air. We often think we aren’t sweating in cold, dry weather, because it tends to evaporate so quickly. This is another factor that can contribute to a diminished thirst response.
So the answer is a clear “Yes.” The dehydration risk remains in cold weather. Whether you’re hitting the slopes or spending an afternoon cross-country skiing – don’t forget to hydrate
Pro-Cyclist and member of Racing Team Colavita recently used our BFitLabs electrolyte sprays from sportsfood.com in the Colorado Rockies. Being a member of a Pro Cycling Racing Team the importance of energy and hydration is paramount. Emma used our spray in the Rockies of Colorado. Emma commented not only did she not cramp on her ride, she commented how well our BFitLabs Spray taste. We look forward to Emma becoming a part of our team and using our electrolyte sprays on her rides and races in the future.
Lately I’ve been trying to figure out some mid long run stomach issues. This little bottle of electrolyte spray from @bfit_labsworked to help in that on Saturday. Lately I have a hard time with all the sugar in electrolyte drinks so this spray was perfect to replace what I was loosing every second out there in that heat. I was able to stick to water 100% of the 5 hours of sweating. I also did @hammernutrition electrolyte pills after each lap and this while on the trails. Getting my stomach back to solid is work but half the battle in ultra running isn’t even the running. I’d highly recommend this stuff for anyone as its rapidly absorbed by the body and easy to take when nothing else sounds good late in a run.
More and more runners, cyclists and athletes are seeing how well our spray works. Have you tried us today?
Tim runs marathons and runs them incredibly well. His Personal Best time is 2:39 which is 20 minutes shy of Olympic qualifying time. He recently won a free bottle of our BfitLabs Electrolyte Spray in a contest on Instagram. He used it for his first long run since he ran in the Boston Marathon and was very impressed with how well they worked. More and more runners, cyclists and athletes are finding out about our new spray and the results have been fantastic. If you haven’t already tried them, they are available only on our website. Give us a try today.
Former Tour de France Racer and our Bfit Labs electrolyte sprays. William “Will” Frischkorn is a former professional road bicycle racer, who finished his career with UCI ProTour team Garmin–Slipstream. He retired from professional cycling in September 2009 to take up a non-racing role with the team. Read what Will says about our sprays!
“As an ex-Tour de France cyclist, I’m tuned into my body and know how to perform at my peak. Most supplements aren’t worth their weight in water, but the BFit Electrolyte Spray actually makes a difference. Before and during a run or a ride, I notice my body doing what it does well, but just that that little bit better. Run times, climbing speed, less fatigue during and after exercise, and quicker general recovery are all things I’m attuned to, and this helps with all.”
Thanks Will for using our BfitLabs electrolyte sprays and seeing how well they work.

team_hot_legs long run Sunday and 4 weeks of Chicago Marathon training is complete ✔️…nice and easy 13 miles 🏃🏻💭💭 so not really sure why NikePlus app thinks I’m overtraining 🙀 I used Rapid Electrolyte spray (recommended by my awesome running friend@spottedturkey) during my run and all felt really good. The spray is a great alternative to GU gels. It has no calories, no carbs, no sugar, and no food dyes..thanks a bunch @bfit_labs
Why rapid electrolyte spray vs. an electrolyte drink? Scenario: you’re headed out for an 8 miler on a hot sunny day (85 degrees F at 8 am). You know you’ve got to manage a slower pace to manage the heat, so it’s gonna take longer than usual (in this heat you should run at least a minute and a half off your normal pace). And you know that in this heat you should switch to an electrolyte based drink after an hour into your run. But here’s the ugly catch: You know that by the time you go to consume the electrolyte drink, it’s gonna be HOT (lukewarm at best if frozen prior), and worse still, if you’ve made the “smart choice” and are using a sugar free source, there’s no way it’s not going to taste like complete ARSE. SO…you find yourself reaching for more water, consequently, not getting the electrolyte replenishment you need. Now, you’ve run out of water and your left with a hot salty nasty tasting liquid that actually makes you feel more thirsty with every sip. Do you a) chug it down, hoping you don’t vomit, praying all the while that the sugar alternative contained in the drink, sorbitol, doesn’t leave you with a case of the trots, b) Look for a garden hose and hope you don’t experience muscle fatigue and cramping, or c) Just call it quits…maybe tomorrow will be better. Really there’s no good option. So if you’re like me, you need another option. And months ago, I discovered a solution: sportsfoodinc rapid electrolyte spray. With rapid electrolyte absorption, there’s no gastric distress, no sloshing hot liquid to carry or choke away, and best of all, it also has B12 and B6 that, like the electrolytes, are rapidly absorbed by way of liposomes, for an almost instant boost of energy. So, now you can drink water, which is what you really crave in high temps anyway, and you have peace of mind knowing that you are giving your body electrolytes, which it needs.
This by far was my worst race ever, but I can’t blame no one but myself for taking 6 months off and gaining weight in the process. Instead of waiting I wanted to do the Spartan Race first just to see where I was condition wise since I took 6 months off racing. The positive is 1) I finished strong, 2) I refused to stop even though at mile 1 I really hurt my right knee, but there was no quitting in me even if I had to walk to the finish line and 3) back to the lab and work on what I need to work on so this performance will NEVER happen again. So at mile 2 I started to feel fatigue start to kick in so I took 2 sprays of Sportsfood.com Rapid electrolytes spray which came in handy. First race ever I didn’t cramp up at all and took another 2 sprays at mile 4 to finish strong. I will be using the spray in the future from you guys thank you.
How did sportsfood.com rapid electrolyte sprays do at the Buffalo Marathon? Thanks to Jenny for sending this testimonial. “I have to give a shout out today. At the #buffalomarathon, I had my trusty fruit snacks after every 4 miles…until I got past 16…the heat was hurting and I was nauseous. So I took my @sportsfoodinc electrolyte spray. And hammered the water. I also hit the electrolyte spray immediately after I finished. And I’m totally fine today. Thankful to have a quick and easy electrolyte replacement, especially when I wasn’t in a position to actually eat anything yesterday. The ease of delivery really made all the difference. I’ll be carrying my spray all the time. #thankful ⭐️ P.S. want 20% off? Use code: Turkey 😉 P.P.S no perks for posting, just sharing info….I like others to learn from my years of errors whenever possible!”
Thanks to Lynn Wilkins from Alabama who recently posted this to her Instagram account. Her son caught 12 innings in 80 degree, 100% humidity and on the same day she ran 8 miles at high noon as she says. Both used our Bfit Labs rapid electrolyte sprays and beat the heat and humidity of Alabama. Thank you Lynn for the post and being a customer and fan of our new Bfit Labs Sprays from sportsfood.com

Spray Your Way to a Better Workout
It’s hard to believe it’s been two years since I wrote about how “stripping” changed my fitness routine. On this Motivation Monday, I’m excited to let you know the same company that introduced me to the power of the electrolyte strip has found a great way for everyone to spray their way to a better workout!
Adding a bottle of Bfit Labs Rapid Electrolyte Spray to your gym bag is a great way to stay fueled and hydrated wherever the day takes you. The spray is made by Sportsfood, Inc., the creator of the rapid electrolyte replacement oral thin film strip that dissolves instantly in your mouth. Just like the strips, each spray of Berry Blast of Very Vanilla contains 0 calories, 0 sugars, 0 carbs and 0 food dyes.
In addition replenishing the all-important electrolytes sodium and potassium, the liposomal spray also delivers a shot of vitamins B6 and B12. In addition to drinking water, I gave the spray a try during one of my forever challenging Physique57 workouts: two sprays before the warm-up and two more half-way through class. While I still felt the burn, my muscles didn’t completely give out as quickly and that means I banged out more reps than usual. I can’t wait to see how the spray keeps me moving during my “strictly cardio” days at New York Sports Club and the variety of outdoor activities ahead of us as we march closer to summer. I should mention one bottle costs $19.95 and contains approximately 180 sprays. If you use up to six sprays per workout, one bottle should last you about a month.
One final important note: this is not an “energy” spray – it doesn’t contain caffeine or stimulants. It contains only the electrolytes our bodies need to help maintain water balance and prevent muscle cramps and fatigue along with hits of B12 and B6.
If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you know I don’t write a lot of product reviews, but I do like to share fitness or food finds that help me in my own efforts to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I hope that assures you I’m only writing about this particular product because I do consider it a bona fide find for my diet and exercise regimen.
You can find more information and of course order the Bfit Labs Rapid Electrolyte Spray at Sportsfood.com Of course, if you do try it out, I want to hear from you! Sharing ideas on how we stay active and healthy is a great way to stay the course on the never-ending journey to have fun, be fit and feel fabulous!
Waking up at 530 and heading to the gym is a chore in itself. This morning after I woke up and got to gym I changed my routine by using the Bfit Labs Electrolyte spray from Sportsfood.com . I was ready to go with no sluggishness after taking a couple of sprays by 6am. My workout was off the charts this morning. Weights for 20 minutes followed by 20 minutes on elliptical, an abs workout, 20 minutes on treadmill, push-ups and finished with a 20 minute bike ride. My energy was never higher and my water intake was significantly lower than usual. I took two sprays about 10 minutes before I started my workout and definitely noticed a difference in my energy and endurance. I will be taking this to our Athletic Director and other Coaches to have them become a part of our schools games. Without the sugar and food dyes, this is a must for our young student athletes. The added Vitamin B6 and B12 are amazing addition , my energy and alertness was noticeably higher. I recommend everyone who works out and plays sports to add the new Bfit Labs sprays to their game plan.

Thank you Sportsfood for getting me through my first Marathon! I wanted to travel light so I carried two gel packs and my Sportsfood strips. I took a strip every 5 miles between water stations. At Mile 23 I cramped up a little but after taking the rest of my strips I was fine and made it to the Finish Line. Thanks again!!
2016 LA MARATHON FINISHER!!
So I was fortunate enough to get my hands on Sports Food Technologies Bfit Labs electrolyte spray. I will premise this review with the fact that I actually paid for this product and was not asked to review it, but given that I had done a prior review for Sports Food, I figured I would go ahead and let everyone know how awesome this stuff is!
This rapid electrolyte spray is basically Sports Food’s cassettes (read review here), but 10x better, both in taste and functionality. The flavor that I received was the Margarita spray, at first I was a little apprehensive about tasting it. However after using it I really found it enjoyable in a really strange way. It was a taste that you shouldn’t enjoy, but really do!
This spray is something else. It has all the vitamins and electrolytes you need, and none of the calories or bathroom breaks that sports drinks have and create. I have been using the spray for about two weeks now, and I do notice difference in my energy levels when I use it and when I don’t. This includes working out or just being at work. For example, while writing this I was struggling with energy because I have been at work for six hours and I also have been up since 4:30 am to do a nine mile run. The pick me up is just what I really need. I really like that effects it has, and once again I can’t stress enough how nice it is to be able get the needed electrolytes in me without having to use the bathroom constantly.
I actually used the spray before I raced a 3k last Friday. Using a new product, and not really being sure how it will affect your body during a race is a scary thing. However, it was really awesome that I trusted it, and I wasn’t stuck going to the bathroom every five minutes. For once I could just focus on my warm up and then my race. My race did go well, I was just off a PR (I fell into no mans land and settled), but I didn’t cramp up or feel dehydrated! Success in a tiny 1 ounce bottle!
The product will run you $22.99, but if you order now they have a great special going on. You really get about a month worth of sprays out of it depending on how much you work out and want to use the spray (which I recommend every time). I use it before my runs in the morning, and then again before my swim workouts in the afternoon. This product is going to become a staple in my training and I am grateful for finding it. I highly recommend you use it!
After trying the new BFit Labs rapid Electrolyte Sprays from Sportsfood Inc , they have become part of my endurance training . They are now an integral part of my performance routine, utilizing them on my bike and prior to my run in triathlons. They have also helped immensely before my combined (run/shoot) in the Modern Pentahlon. I don’t get the “dry mouth” during my events, they have aided in fueling me and it has really helped with my recovery. More hydration equals LESS CRAMPS!! Thanks for the great product. Look forward to using it for all my Team USA events in the Triathlon and Modern Pentathlon.

Jess Davis a 2016 Olympic hopeful in the Modern Pentathlon as well as trying to compete in the 2016 World Championship in Triathlon finished 2nd overall on Halloween in the 2015 Long Island Duathlon. Finishing 2nd overall qualifies her to receive her Elite Card to compete in all future duathlon races. Jess was nice enough to use our new BFit electrolyte replacement spray to fuel her race. Jess used our grapefruit flavor spray with our new liposomal/nano technology that enables our Vitamin B6 & B12 electrolyte sprays to not only replace electrolytes faster and more efficiently, the added vitamins also gives you extra fuel and energy while competing. . Here is what Jess said after her race:
It’s about time I gave Sportsfood.com a full review. A few people might know that I used to be sponsored by an “energy drink” …those same people might notice that I am no longer affiliated with them. Simply put: I refuse to encourage people to buy things that are toxic, or that I wouldn’t consume myself or allow my children to use.
One thing to note is, at one time I ditched ALL but two sponsors …I kept Sportsfood inc on my team the entire time. Straight up, this product is one that I believe in, and use.
I hate eating before a workout, and there’s no way in hell I would take a snack mid-workout, because anything beyond a tiny swipe of peanut butter would make me feel weighted down. One thing that I can [and do] take before or in the middle of a killer workout or back-to-backs, are Sports Food Inc’s Electrolyte Strips. They just add that extra edge and replenishment to my workouts that push me past mere mortal levels of performance. My coach’s wife commented the other day that “Man, she just gets in the zone and doesn’t stop” …part of that is work ethic and desire, and the other part is proper nutrition and these electrolyte strips.
Seriously, if you’re even remotely interested, now is the time to try. They’re already priced low, but now they’re offering a pretty rockin’ discount.
Just to clarify, I refuse taking a cut of anything from any of my sponsors, because I believe in their products that much. The only thing I ever ask for are: 1. That they keep me stocked up. 2. That they offer my friends and family a discount for rooting for me.
On a normal day, you can use my “GI Jane” [with the space] code and get 10%, but this special is even better -so capitalize!
Jess Davis a member of Team USA Modern Pentathlon team ran her first Triathlon of the season and won her age group and finished 6th overall. It was her first time using our electrolyte strips in a race. “Was an amazing first tri of the season after a long spring of training for the Team USA Modern Pentathlon team! Nutrition and hydration hyas always been my biggest issue with these long multi-sport days. Luckily Sportsfood.com has helped me push thru that and begin succeeding where I struggled in the past. I can not thank them enough for this fantastic product and can’t wait to see what’s to come in my season” said Jess.
Awesome job and we are so proud to be a part of Jess’ training. We are very excited about whats to come as well.
As a modern pentathlete and triathlete, arranging training, nutrition, and hydration is a full time job. A typical training day begins at 7 am and ends around 8pm or later. Within that time frame I am usually doing 4 of my 5 sports for modern pentathlon and 2 of the 3 for triathlon. Practice consists of shooting for an hour, fencing for 2-4 hours, swimming usually 2 hours, riding for 2-4 hours and cycling from anywhere from an hour to maybe 5 hours. Along with the physical stress comes the anxiety and emotional stress, so all in all its a rough but rewarding process. Figuring out nutrition that works can make it a lot easier tho. Struggles in training usually stems from deficient nutrition and bad hydration. But with products like Sportsfood Inc Rapid Electrolyte Strips, it eliminates the issue of worrying and tracking the amount of electrolytes you have. Having something easy and quick helps with such busy and hectic days. Also as you can imagine we are required to carry a lot of equipment with us daily, and carrying around heavy jugs of supplement is just not practical, the size, efficiency and performance of your product is the perfect solution for a busy multi sport athlete!

Being an endurance athlete requires proper nutrition and hydration. While on the trail I often find myself racing the clock and too consumed to stop and rest. This is where the Sportsfoods’ rapid replacement electrolyte strips really excel. Being able to hydrate while on the move is key and increases the likelihood of success. The strips fit perfectly in your pocket and taste fantastic. This product is greatly improving my performance and aiding in a faster recovery time allowing me to get out and stay out more! Thanks Sportsfood!

Greetings to all at Sportsfood Technologies
I wanted to take the time to visit with you about a product of yours: the electrolyte strips.
I first heard about this product through social media. I have to admit, I was a bit intrigued by the claims that these strips could help maintain energy levels for those engaged in rigorous physical activity through the maintenance and/or replacement of the nutrients expended during such activity. Although I saw it more as a supplement for those with a vigorous workout regimen, I thought it may be something that could aid me with some demanding chores I perform, both at work and around my farm. So I placed an order, not as a skeptic, but as a person looking to find ways in aiding myself getting some labor done.
I probably couldn’t have received my shipment of electrolyte strips at a better time to put them to a test, I had a full day scheduled to cut wood on the very next day. Cutting wood is something I enjoy, but both my parents and I burn wood through the winter, so the process of creating the supply we need through the colder months is not a casual one. It usually takes cutting on weekends for about 2 1/2 months to acquire the quantity of wood we need. And it is most definitely demanding work.
So I followed the guidelines on the package, which suggest taking two strips before the work/workout and then two more during the time of physical activity. Since this was a day-long endeavor, I took two that Saturday morning before commencing , and then two more a short time after eating my lunch.
The results I encountered were very impressive. Not only did I avoid having my typical mid-afternoon energy “let down”, but I felt refreshed and alert throughout the work day. For any work being done around chainsaws, both of those are qualities are a must, not only for a productive day , but also for safety concerns. I cut wood for 9 hours that first day using your product, all without losing my edge due to overexertion or exhaustion.
The following day, I took care of routine chores through the morning, followed by 4 more hours of cutting wood. Once again, I followed the prescribed strip usage and the results were the same. No feelings of tiredness or lethargy, leaving only the satisfaction of knowing I had just completed two demanding days of work while accomplishing more than I had thought I would get done. I also thought my muscles would be extremely sore from all the labor, but that did not come to pass.
Because of these results, I wanted to take the time to commend you for the performance of your electrolyte strips. Although I approached your product with some question marks, I walk away with the undeniable knowledge that the strips performed just as they were promoted to do. My only regret is that I didn’t realize such a product existed a couple of months ago when I was splitting all the wood for use through the winter. However, the heavy demands of a long,hot summer lie just ahead , and i”m looking forward to having these strips at my disposal to aid me though those sweltering days.
Want to thank Melisa Nicole, as it was her promotion of your product that led me to the discovery of your electrolyte strips.
I appreciate your time.
As a single mother who is also trying to stay in shape, I am SO thankful that I have found Sportsfood Electrolyte Replacement Strips! Whether I’m running late in the morning and don’t have time to eat right away or if I’m behind on cooking dinner. Sportsfood strips take the edge off my hunger! They give me the energy I need to keep me going throughout my busy day without caving into the temptation of caffeine or sugar. Thank you for making such a wonderful product.
Shoutout to Sportsfood.com for keeping us energized and helping our body recover after a long practice! Must Buy!

Alyssa Vasquez is training for her 135lb V3 title fight using our electrolyte strips. See what she says about them and why our rapid electrolyte product is the best out there!
“Another slamming morning workout with my Sportsfood electrolyte strips. At first I thought the strips were all hype, but then I popped a few in during my training and they are LEGIT!!! Like those ORS packets we got in the Army but way better tasing and much more efficient. I highly recommend them and they will be a staple in all my workouts for this fight and many more!!
They are the best. I am a 60 year old woman and grandmother and was feeling lethargic late one afternoon food shopping. Went to my car and remembered my daughter gave me a sample of the strips, put a strip on my tongue and just continued loading the trunk. Went home, unloaded the car put everything away without even realizing how good I was feeling. Continuing my day without the jitters and that nice cup of 4pm coffee I didnt have time for that day. A real NICE surprise! I have been giving them out here and there. Gave one to my husband & he didnt even realize how it was working. A nice mild pick me up of electrolytes instead of drinking those drinks. One strip is a GREAT IDEA! Easy to carry, not a bulky bottle to carry around. Thank You-Thank You-Thank You
My country club (CCNB) team won 2nd Low Gross at The Bermuda Goodwill Pro-AM Golf Tournament held December 8-12 2014. Playing a 4-day event used to be challenging, but i can honestly say taking SportsFood Electrolyte strips as directed made a huge difference in my game. We were using the original strips and we can not wait to order and sample the new product line. Keep up the Great Work!!
As athletes, we work extremely hard, day in and day out to achieve our goals, often pushing ourselves to the limit.Whether a professional, or someone who just likes to stay in shape, we are all looking for products to help us get to the next level in our training.
In the running community, these come in many forms from drinks, bars,and gels, that are not only difficult yo take while running, but are packed with sugar,carbs and food dyes, leading to upset stomachs, feeling lethargic or like myself, severe blood sugar drops.
Just as I was about to give up searching for a product that not only works, but one I also believe in, I came across Sportsfood Technologies; an innovative company introducing a rapid electrolyte replacement supplement promised to keep you hydrated and enhance your performance. The convenient packaging fits in a small pouch or key holder allowing for easy transport during the longest runs. Better yet, the strip form of Sportsfood dissolves quickly once placed on your tongue, eliminating the “heavy” or “full” feeling often caused by drinks and gels.
Just after a couple of uses,(including a 17 mile run,my longest so far this season) my legs feel much less fatigued than usual, and I have seen an increase in performance during the latter stages of my workouts.
I challenge all of you to give Sportsfood a try, and see just how far it will carry you on your next run!

After the 1st day I had remembered that I had brought 2 packs with us. She took 1 before training and felt great. Plus 1 after. We also used them after surfing. They saved us from cramping and feeling dehydrated many times. Please send more and I will use them with All my client’s.

We are incredibly proud to receive such kind and encouraging words from such an esteemed family and hope more members of the Gracie family approve and use our electrolyte strips,
The electrolyte strips from Sportsfood Inc. are AMAZING!! I like that they are fast acting and that you notice the effects of them right away. I compete in physique bodybuilding and your electrolyte strips are going to help me further my progress much quicker than I thought. I’m able to do more reps and even add a set or two. Thank you Sportsfood Inc.
I have a naturally, abnormally, high blood temperature, so I’m prone to heat exhaustion and dehydration in the Summers. With these electrolyte strips, I can keep them in my pocket and take a couple when I’m really feeling bad, like when I’m walking my dogs. They get me back up and let me get home , and avoid the headaches and muscle cramps that I usually get in the heat. I gave some to a friend of mine who works outside all day. He was absolutely amazed because he said he’s used to having headaches and nausea, and he didn’t realize he was giving himself heat exhaustion and heat stroke on a shockingly regular basis. I even gave them to my dogs before, and after long walks in the Houston heat. I’m not having to , practically carry or drag them back to the house after a walk. You still need to keep drinking water, but that is only part of the equation. You have to keep up with your electrolytes. The Sportsfood Inc. strips are the easiest way to do it. I can fit a whole handful of packs in my pocket without taking up much room. It’s not nearly as convenient to carry a big bottle of Pedialyte, and Gatorade is useless, Add table salt to Kool-Aid, and you have Gatorade. These strips are a concentrated boost of electrolytes when you need them, and later to recover.
They are brilliant, and I will certainly be buying more!

I don’t get enough sleep as it is being in a hostile country. I work out very intensely and have felt my energy level dropping and my workouts being less intense. I didn’t think hydration was a problem for me as I drink over a gallon of water ever day. But when I used the Rapid Electrolyte strips from Sportsfood Inc I felt my energy level go up and the intensity return to me and my workout. I didn’t believe they would work till I tried them and felt the results myself. I am now going to keep using them before and after my workouts. I highly recommend them to anyone who really wants to push themselves and get the most out of their body and workouts. They have also helped with the heat over here.
A Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army who is also a flight Dr. enjoys Sportsfood Inc electrolyte strips. He is a prior Army ranger/Special Forces man and currently serves as a Flight Doctor for a task force. He currently uses our electrolyte strips for his personal training program and sent us a note last night stating that : Typically after doing my crossfit training and on my way to Ju-jitsu I am exhausted and smoked. The electrolyte strips from Sportsfood Inc. have without question helped to keep me hydrated and energized to get me through my ju-jitsu training. Thank you Sportsfood.
There is no better way to say how much we love the SportsFood Strips than in the words of my son….….I used to have leg cramps all the time from getting dehydrated when I played soccer. Since I started to take these strips I am keeping hydrated and I don’t get leg cramps anymore. I used to be panting after a short run on the soccer field but since taking the strips I am more hydrated and I can run longer. The strips taste great!Jon R.
I just finished the Philadelphia Sprint Distance triathlon fueled by Sportsfood Inc Electrolyte strips. After a debilitating injury in February and only riding the bike once in training, I only lost 10 minutes off my time last summer. My 5k run time was 28:17 a 9:08/mile pace. The best is I’m barely tired after the triathlon today. Thank you SPORTSFOOD for an amazing product, that really works, and I can see the benefits of using during my races.
As a Sergeant in the Army physical fitness is one of my top priorities for myself and my junior Enlisted Soldiers and has always been a concern Army wide. When I first heard about SportsFoodINC’s strips I became extremely curious and wanted to get these out to the troops ASAP. After trying these out with my fellow Soldiers for combatives and other physical fitness areas, everyone is beyond impressed! The officers in my unit who used them all said the same thing they had more stamina, and felt the positive effects from using the strips only 1 time. Very excited to pass the strips on to our patrol units and the aviators in my unit as well, being focused and having energy during essential missions are critical for success and I have no doubt these strips will provide that success!
1976 Gold Medal winner Howard Davis Jr. uses our electrolyte strips and loves them.

My 4 year old black lab had been suffering from food poisoning the past 3 days. Needless to say she was extremely dehydrated and lethargic. I gave her one of the Sportsfood electrolyte strips and within an hour she was back to her old self - running and playing fetch! Thank you Sportsfood! Sincerely, Danielle and Mike the Dog!!
I have never been a runner, and decided to take up running at age 50. And I have never been one to drink a lot of water. So one of my issues was not having enough electrolytes in my system. I have competed in multiple 5Ks and 10Ks, half marathon and one full marathon. I have not had issues with cramping during my 5K runs or my 10K runs. I did however have cramps at the end of my half marathon. The Day I ran the full marathon I had not taken in enough liquids or electrolytes prior to the run. At mile 10 my calves started to get tight. So I found a friend that had bottled electrolytes. They helped a little for the next 6 miles. At mile 16 both my calf muscles twisted, and I thought I was going to fall down. The next 10 miles every mile I had to stop and stretch my calves so that I could continue running the marathon. I found out that day that electrolytes are incredibly important for your body and its function during exercise, especially running. Since getting the electrolyte strips from sportsfoodinc, I have had no issues with any kind of cramping during my long runs. I can hardly wait to use them on my next half marathon or marathon race. My experience was so bad with my first marathon that I have to do it again. I want to be prepared better. I did all the training that was required, I just did not Hydrate and pour in electrolytes prior to the run. I can’t tell you how glad I am to have been introduced to these strips.

On this Motivation Monday, I’m excited to tell you about a new addition to my fitness routine. I tried it for several days last week and experienced the same positive results each time. What did I do? I “stripped” before each workout, and I “stripped” again halfway through each sweaty ordeal.
Now that I’ve got your attention, let me explain exactly what I’m talking about: a rapid electrolyte replacement oral thin film strip made by Sportsfood, Inc. Just like the company’s website says, the strips are small and thin, and dissolve instantly in your mouth. Once dissolved, each strip immediately begins to replace the all-important electrolytes – sodium and potassium – your body loses when you sweat. The kicker: the strips contain no calories, no sugars, no carbs and no food dyes.
I admit I was skeptical when I first tried the strips. I took two strips about five minutes before my Physique57 workout started. (Note: the strips have a slightly salty taste, but they dissolve so fast, I didn’t find anything unpleasant about them.) I used another two after the warm up, thigh sprints and one side of the glute work was done. (That’s about 30 minutes into class.) While I still felt the burn from the intense workout, my muscles didn’t tire out quite as quickly and that means I banged out more reps than ever before. I used the strips again before a 60-minute cardio-only session at New York Sports Club the next day and I had the same results. I was able to extend my time on the elliptical machine, stationary bike AND rowing machine – which means I extended my normal workout by an additional 15 minutes.
The bottom line is while I will always drink my water before, during and after any workout, the strips definitely gave my body an “edge” I haven’t experienced before. Please note, this is not an “energy” strip – they don’t contain caffeine or stimulants. They are strictly made up of the electrolytes our bodies need to live. From an active standpoint, sodium and potassium help maintain water balance and prevent muscle cramps and fatigue.
Remember, being hydrated is the single most important factor in activities of any intensity level. That includes activities that aren’t strictly fitness-focused. I can’t wait to pack these strips in my beach bag to keep me moving during a long walk on the sand or even before some heavy lifting of yard furniture and other seasonal items at my parents’ house.
If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you know I don’t normally write rave reviews about products, but tend to discuss certain workouts or unexpected food finds that I find helpful. I hope that assures you that I’m only writing about this particular product because I do consider it a bona fide find for my diet and exercise regimen.
The past week has seen a meteoric in the interest of our electrolyte strips from the world of MMA. Fresh Start MMA was the first to contact us as they saw the benefit Sportsfood can have with their fighters from not only a training point of view but from a weight cutting aid as well. Many of you know , weight cutting is the process of dropping a big percentage of weight in order to fight at a lower body weight. This is also a very taxing and dangerous for your body.
About 65% of the human body is made of water under normal conditions. This makes it tempting for athletes to temporarily lose weight through dehydration prior to weigh-ins. This weight can then be rapidly regained immediately afterwards.
A good rule of thumb for most athletes is to lose no more than 5% of their total body weight through dehydration. Athletes at an elite level often lose more than this. It should not be attempted without a knowledgeable coach and medical supervision.
Immediately before weigh-ins, athletes can put on warm clothes and engage in aerobic exercise to make themselves sweat. Garbage bags can be worn against the skin to eliminate cooling through sweat evaporation.
Some athletes choose to sit in a sauna so that they can sweat without wasting energy. Another technique is to chew gum to induce salivation, then to spit out thesaliva instead of swallowing it.
Athletes should remember to urinate and defecate as this is an easy way to reduce weight. Some athletes may choose to take diuretics and laxatives to aid in this. Some diuretics are banned by the WADA in events such as the Olympics as they mask Steroid detection in post drug tests, some may also have harmful effects on the body.
Losing weight through dehydration is not recommended, as it may lead to decreased performance, and, more importantly, serious injury.
Our strips dissolve in your mouth and since we have zero calories, sugars, and carbs you can safely maintain and replace electrolytes, while weight cutting. This allows you to keep your strength and focus during the process and when you replenish your body, you will come out of it stronger and fitter.
We have also been approached by a major MMA fight promoter and expect this news to be released this week. The amount of new followers and freinds on our social media sites as shown us the MMA world is forward thinking in their ways and embrace our technology to improve their fighters and sport. We will be in many major MMA gyms and expect to have a very long and amazing partnership with all aspects of MMA for a long time.
I started using SportsFood Inc. Rapid Electrolyte Replacement Strips during the classes I teach. I teach a very intense, high cardio, hour long Martial Arts class called BodyCombat. These classes involve Boxing, Karate, Tae Kwon Do, and Jiu-Jitsu…just to name a few. What I noticed as I was teaching a class and using this product. Was that I had added stamina, more endurance, a feeling of being able to go harder and longer all while sweating bullets and maintaining the highest level of impact for maximum benefits not only for myself but also for the class members….as they get their motivation to push beyond their comfort zones when they see an instructor going hard. The addition of Sportsfood Inc. Electrolyte Replacement Strips provide the added hydration that gives you that extra boost to continue to push harder and become the best you possible….so I say….give them a try… I did…and I’m Happy to say I am. I now recommend to my students and you, to go to Sportsfood.com and try out their Electrolyte Replacement Strips. I can honestly say I am a full time “stripper” now….
As a Zumba instructor, I never understood or thought much about the importance of electrolytes and what they could do for me. So when I was presented with these Sportsfood Strips, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. I can tell you, I sure wasn’t prepared for the level of intensity I was able to maintain! Normally, I get through my class and feel good at the end of it, but when using the strips, I not only get through class, I sail through class and could keep going long after it’s over! And my students have been wondering what has gotten into me. I just tell them to find the missing piece, the key to true hydration, replacing your electrolytes with Sportsfood Strips!

Working as a professional driver in a high pressure environment I am required to spend many long hours in a vehicle. My job performance is dependent on staying alert and have found that staying hydrated plays an essential part in reducing tiredness and stress. I was first introduced to Sportsfood at the Vehicle Dynamics Institute and have continued to use their electrolyte replacement strips on a regular basis.
