Succeed Electrolyte Capsules: S!CAPS

Developed in 1995 by scientist and ultramarathoner Karl King, SUCCEED! S Caps Electrolyte capsules have become The Gold Standard for Electrolyte Replacement®. S! Caps provide all of the major blood plasma electrolytes that other formulations are missing [ sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate, and phosphate ]. S! Caps contain only electrolytes with no fillers or vitamins that aren't really needed in an electrolyte formulation.

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

FEATURES
- 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

TESTIMONIALS
"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

HOW TO USE
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.

INGREDIENTS
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

They work! July 15, 2019
Reviewer: SJC from Cowbridge, Vale of Glamorgan United Kingdom  
Used for first time on SW100 and despite warm day, taking one or two of these along with food and plenty of fluid kept muscles strong and cramp-free over 6400m of ascent, along  with the 100miles.

Hooray! July 8, 2019
Reviewer: Randall Joy-Camacho from Hove, East Sussex United Kingdom  
At last I have found an alternative to the sugary, sweet alternatives. As a longer distance runner I really appreciate the fact that  I can now enjoy my long runs without having to endure sweet,  and after a while, sickly  tasting isotonic drinks and gels  throughout the run.
The only problem I have with this product is the fact that it comes in a plastic bottle.
I would pay more to have the option of less plastic packaging.
I recently did the South Downs way 100 miler and used these instead of gels and energy drinks, no cramps and a happy run with these, water, and normal food..
A big discovery for me. One every 1/2 hour to an hour depending on how hard the going is.

No more headaches. July 1, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Bradford, West Yorkshire United Kingdom  
I sweat like a demon. I hydrate during the run, using hydration tabs, and I hydrate for 3-4 hours afterwards, on top of my using hydration needs, but still, after a long or hot run, I get a headache that is both debilitating and demoralising. The headaches actually spoil my enjoyment of running. In June, I purchased these Succeed S!CAPS, just as a trial really, but what a success. I have had 3 x 20 mile runs during the "heat wave" that we have just had and no headache. I have been taking them before, during and after the runs and after any other activity when I feel I may need to top-up my sodium levels and I have felt so much better. Use as an addition to your usual hydration requirements and you should feel the benefits yourself. I will definitely continues using S!CAPS on a daily basis.

Brilliant March 8, 2019
Reviewer: paul from New Malden, Surrey United Kingdom  
Essential for longer runs. I sweat a lot and used to have to carry loads of gels. These are much easier and work a lot better.
