  Salt : Less is best!
  Athletes have been told to “salt up” their food the week before a hot-weather race. This,
  however, is the worst thing you can do because your body already stores up copious
  amounts of sodium... several thousand milligrams! This is why it is imperative that you
  reduce your sodium to combat heat stress, not increase it.

  Overwhelming evidence clearly supports limiting sodium intake during rest and exercise to
  less than 1,800 to 2,400 mg per day. The harmful effect of chronic sodium overdose is a
  real and present danger to compromise optimal health and performance.

  Research shows that chronic consumption of more than 2,300 milligrams per day may

  Real, potent ingredients
 The two key players in the Race Caps Supreme formula are Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and Idebenone.
 These two nutrients are the primary substrates involved in the Electron Transport Chain process of ATP   Shelley

 (energy) production by the mitochondria.

  CoQ10’s importance cannot be understated because quite simply, without it, the chain of cellular
 energy production is broken. This is key not only for athletic performance but also for maintaining
 cardiovascular and brain health, and strong immunity. For both athletic performance and general
 health applications, there is simply no question that the athlete MUST supplement with CoQ10.

 Idebenone is an analogue of CoQ10 and a superb complement to that remarkable nutrient. In fact,
 some experts even suggest it to be even more powerful in action than CoQ10. In essence, Idebenone
 extends the already powerful benefits of CoQ10 and under hypoxic (low oxygen) conditions,
 Idebenone’s ATP generating capabilities are even superior to CoQ10.

“     This was the first time I had used Liquid Endurance. I was in a 12 hour MTB race with temperatures in
the 90’s and 100’s and no shade. This race had long climbs with extended sections of 20+% grade. I raced
the same course in Jan. 08 and knew what to expect; however, this time I was surprised. Each lap my legs
felt stronger, despite the heat which was bothering many riders, and I never had any leg burn. I did
5 laps and I climbed every hill. In January I couldn’t ride the hills more than 3 times. It’s now five days
after the race and my legs have never been tired at all. It doesn’t even seem like I did a race. I use many
Hammer products but this time the added Liquid Endurance made a huge difference. I won my class. 60+,
co-ed, and beat two men in the process.
