In today's world, electrolytes are becoming more and more focused on hydration and performance, but what are electrolytes, what do they do, and how much do we need?

Krampade Provides Critical Electrolyte Replacement to Enhance Mission Performance

 For over 50 years, the US military has recognized that potassium deficiency results in a soldier’s reduced performance and recovery.  From new recruits to highly trained Special Operations’ personnel, reduced body potassium is a key missing link to a decrease in performance during training and missions. Despite the recognized need by the US military, a dietary source to offset this deficiency has eluded the military for years, until now.  Krampade offers several families of products that provide rapid, dietary replacement of potassium to keep muscle performance and endurance high, while also enhancing muscle recovery. Why is potassium so critically important?  For muscles to function properly, potassium is used during exertion to increase blood flow to the muscle necessary for optimal performance.  This also increases muscle endurance.
