Sugar Free Electrolytes
By Edward Kane
The body has a high storage capacity for
fats (lipids), but a rather meager ability to store glucose.
The effort to build up a reservoir of sugar of any kind,
ends up, in a healthy individual, as triglycerides or fats,
the principle form of energy. In effect, carbohydrate loading
makes you fat momentarily, at least, until your next workout.
ElyteSport is a highly concentrated electrolyte drink,
higher than any on the market. E-Lyte is used to replenish
or rebalance those that are severely electrolyte depleted.
Giving a sick patient a sugary drink is never an option.
To resuscitate someone after trauma calls for an IV of
electrolytes, not an IV of glucose.
ElyteSport electrolytes assimilate at an amazing rate throughout
the body, while complex carbs must travel through the liver
for conversion, then out into the blood stream to find
their way to every cell, and finally locate a glucose receptor
to take them in. The two take totally different pathways
and are totally different in function. Electrolytes make
everything metabolically possible and are absorbed lightning
fast. Taking them separately, just 5 or 10 seconds apart,
would be enough if the electrolytes were consumed first.
Normally you do not salt sugary foods. Electrolytes are
salts and salt goes with meat and potatoes, soups, vegetables,
etc. All animals seek a salt source to lick when they feel
the need. Electrolytes are put in water for livestock,
especially for race horses. Can you put sugary stuff and
electrolytes together? I suppose you could but we do not
Reaching for high performance however, requires both, electrolytes
and glucose. You need electrolytes for everything that
happens in the body, all the time. Glucose is needed after
you run out of your stores of glycogen, which occurs about
an hour or so after you start your workout.
There are those who propose that sweeteners encourage you
to drink, to ensure hydration. If you run short of fluids
and the fluids are available, there are few that will need
drinking instruction. The biotech sophistication of the
body is far beyond our current understanding. The only
argument that has relevance is, can the athlete carry both
while working out and reach both when they need to, which
cyclists and runners or any long distance performers have
The market for drink products is huge, far greater than
that used by high performing athletes. And that huge public
is where the real market is. There is no way the general
public would go for a salty flavored drink. However, they
are all watching you, the performers, and copy what you
say and do. But it is sill unlikely they would buy anything
that wasn’t sweetened. It’s a great big Coca
Cola, Pepsi, Gatorade world. ElyteSport is a breath of
fresh air in the area of sports medicine with a totally
new look at function first and marketing second. For all
of you who are after performance, ElyteSport is the only
way to go.
Can you take ElyteSport and complex carbs. Sure, just separate
them momentarily. That way you can determine what the body
wants when it wants it. The body really knows. All you
need to do is listen.
