Despite the fact that being confined has changed my outdoor life and my energy output and intake, I’ve found I still need GU Roctane Electrolyte Capsules.
Normally, this time of year, I spend long days in the mountains. As I traverse from ski hut to ski hut, I’m out for hours and hours at high altitude. Instead, this year, I’m limited to an hour of hiking or running near my house.
Needless to say, the energy I’m spending is very different—balancing on my slackline doesn’t quite burn the same calories as climbing a 14,000-foot peak … In order to balance reduced activity levels, I’ve also had to change my eating habits.
What I’ve found is that when things are so out of the ordinary, it’s hard to keep track of all the changes. For example, I started to notice some leg and foot cramps in the evenings and at night. What was I missing? Thinking about it, I realized that despite lower activity levels, I was short on minerals.
Enter GU Roctane Electrolyte Capsules packed with sodium, magnesium and chloride, as well as vitamin D. These little caps of gold are easily absorbed with a glass of water. Confined or unconfined I find they really help maintain electrolyte balance in my body. I find them especially practical in hot conditions, when I might become dehydrated more quickly. Also, over the years I’ve found the Rocktane Electrolyte caps are a good addition to other GU hydration and nutrition products, like for example, the recovery drink that I use frequently.
Thank you Gu! Rocktane Electrolytes have cleared up my leg and foot cramps. Now it’s time for a run. And then back to the stack of books I finally have the opportunity to read!
