Cramping is your body's final warning signal that you're "on empty" electrolyte wise. However, your performance is deteriorating and you are slowing down long before you feel the slightest twinge of a cramp. To keep your body's muscular, digestive, nervous, and cardiac systems "firing on all cylinders" you need a consistent supply of all electrolytic minerals, not just sodium and potassium.
Plus, in many instances, you require greater volumes of electrolytes than any sports drink or gel can provide. That is why Endurolytes fulfills such a crucial component of your fueling by supplying your body with a perfectly balanced, full-spectrum, rapidly assimilated electrolyte source, allowing you to meet your widely variable electrolyte needs with tremendous precision, hour after hour, no matter what the weather throws at you."
Use as needed but primarily when:

I've tried various products to avoid cramps but nothing has been as good as endurolytes. I've used them for prevention by taking before and during an event and haven't had a real cramping problem since. If I ever feel any early sign of possible cramping developing I take two tablets and within a short time, I find the early cramp symptoms disappear. They work well for me.

In the many marathons that I have run over the years, I have always struggled with severe cramping in my legs near the end of the race. My friend suggested that I take some Hammer Endurolytes during my longer training runs. They worked great! Shortly after passing mile 23 of the Portland Marathon, I cramped up in my lower left leg. I took two endurolytes and about a quarter of a mile later, the cramp went away and I had a great finish to my marathon.

It seems no matter what I tried during a race I would always have cramping issues at the end of long, hot days. Taking 3 Endurolytes at the start, as well as additional capsules during longer races really paid off. These helped me stop cramping, as well as not feeling as dehydrated the next day.
