Description Extended Information / FAQ
Succeed Electrolyte Capsules: S!CAPS

Developed in 1995 by scientist and ultramarathoner Karl King, SUCCEED! Electrolyte Caps have become The Gold Standard for Electrolyte Replacement®.

S!Caps are 100% electrolytes. Beware of imitations that use ineffective, non-electrolyte fillers such as sugars or the carbohydrate maltodextrin.

- Alleviation of cramping
- Buffers to help stabilize the stomach
- Protection against potentially fatal hyponatremia
- Sodium and potassium in effective amounts
- Phosphate and citrate for energy production
- S! Caps is the ONLY electrolyte product that delivers the correct ratio of electrolytes (cations and anions)
- Suitable for vegetarians and vegans

"S!Caps are an indispensable component of my race-day strategy. They allow me to stay hydrated and on top of my electrolyte intake even when my stomach isn’t otherwise cooperating."
Anton Krupicka

"It would be stupid for me to think of a Course Record and not have S! Caps in my back pocket. They go hand in hand when racing all out like that. A Course Record pace for 100 miles put my body on the precipice but S! Caps helped keep me on the sustainable side. Otherwise, cramping and stomach issues from low electrolytes would make peak performance impossible to hold."
Hal Koerner

Always take with water or sports drink. If taken with no fluid, the result can be temporary stomach queasiness. The electrolytes in SUCCEED! Buffer/Electrolyte Caps will help water empty rapidly from the stomach, improving hydration status. They will dissolve in minutes after being swallowed.

If sweating very heavily, use 2 caps per hour. For moderate sweating, use 1 cap per hour. In cool weather or with very light sweating, use 1 cap per 2 hours.

If you expect to be sweating heavily, take one capsule with at least a cup of water before starting your run. More is not always better! There will not be significant benefit in exceeding these amounts.

The simplest way to pace your electrolyte intake is to consult your stomach. If your stomach is full of fluid and sloshing, you are overdue for electrolyte intake. Take an S!Cap and see how you feel in 10-15 minutes. If the sloshing is gone, you’re good to go. If you still have too much fluid in your stomach. Take another S!Cap.

If your electrolyte intake is moderate, and your stomach starts to feel queasy, take an S!Cap. It is better take the caps in moderation and consult your stomach for directions on when to take the next one.

Store in a dry location, away from high heat.

S! Caps Supplement facts

Regular table salt provides sodium, but is un-buffered. S!Caps provide buffers against the acid formed during carbohydrate metabolism (bicarbonate, citrate, and phosphate). These will help keep your stomach from getting too acid. Citrate and phosphate are also used in the biochemistry of energy production.

Ingredients list: Sodium Chloride, Sodium bicarbonate, Sodium citrate, Sodium phosphate, Potassium Chloride

No stomach problems. July 28, 2014
Reviewer: Joe D from Clacton On Sea, Essex United Kingdom  
I found that with soluble electrolyte tablets which I'd used foer the last few years, I would end up with gripey feelings in my stomach. I was drinking a lot to get the recommended electolytes in, especially in summer marathons. The taste I was ending up with after a few bottles, even changing flavours was quite unpleasant. I have had no such problems since going over to an S-cap every 4 miles in hot weather. I've used them for 3 further marathons now, including a 50k, and hence hacve ordered this second bottle to see me through the year.
