" I’m awarding it 5 stars in this review" - Hydration Anywhere
Saltstick is one of the best rehydration "supplements" around as used by numerous top athletes. This extract from an article published on HydrationAnywhere.com - says it all.
"Speaking more specifically, the formulation of SaltStick was tuned to replace the amount of electrolytes the body will use in about an 30-60 minutes of physical exercise. Personally, after using SaltStick as recommended during my cycling outings and days at the gym, I think they got it right. Taking 1 SaltStick capsule about every hour when I’m physically active, I can definitely feel a difference in my energy levels. I am less fatigued, suffer fewer cramps from cycling, and feel like I have more energy overall.
Now, it is not a dramatic difference. If you are expecting wondrous things from rehydration tablets, you are barking up the wrong tree. However, it certainly makes me feel better overall and I feel like I get more out of my exercise when I am properly hydrated. SaltStick contains no Banned Substances, which means you can use it in most athletic competitions or cycling events without concern (be sure to check the rules of your specific event before hand, however.) Athletes are all intimately aware of how important peak physical condition is, and electrolyte supplements are certainly an important tool in the kit for being all you can be".

Will the SaltStick Dispenser fit inside my aerobars?

Will the SaltStick Mini Dispenser fit inside my road bars?
The SaltStick Dispenser will fit inside many road bars that have an empty void, usually covered with plastic caps. To fit inside the bars, a 3.3″ (84mm)straight run is required and a diameter of 0.6″ (15mm). If the road bars have significant ergonomic bends, there is a good chance the SaltStick Mini will not fit inside the bar ends, and would need to be mounted externally, in which case the SaltStick Dispenser (6 capsule model) is recommended.
