abunda_amazon_reviews My teenage daughter needs this for treatment of POTS, per her pediatric cardiologist (who recommended SaltStick brand by name). The capsules are dauntingly large (she takes four per dose, 2x daily) to swallow, but I open them into orange juice, shake it *very* well, and she gets it down with no problem. Since this has been incorporated into her regimen (along with a LOT of water), her symptoms have dissipated dramatically. I wouldn't mind if the product was available in powder form, but for now, opening the capsules is a workable (albeit tedious when you're in a hurry) workaround. As an aside, I have had to contact SaltStick with questions on a couple of occasions, and the company is responsive, professional, and a pleasure to work with.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 13, 2016;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Pediatric cardiologist recommended SaltStick brand by name;;Dawn J.;;/gp/customer-reviews/R1HHUF2H8N0EMK/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B002IY96B0;;;I do not want this to sound overly dramatic but I'm sure it will. This product has changed my life. I used to get terrible, debilitating headaches anywhere around 2 to 4 hours after my runs. I tried everything from hydrating really well including the day before, right before my runs, during my runs and after. I drank water, sports drinks with electrolytes but nothing seemed to work. The headaches were inevitable and I dreaded them to the point where I would skip runs. I fueled properly with food, got plenty of sleep but this too did not help. So what would happen is I would have to take ibuprofen before the headache started or else it would get out of control and honestly ruin the rest of my day. I decided to try something else and this was SaltStick Capsules. I took 1 capsule about 30 minutes before I started out and hoped for the best. I ended up getting a headache although it was a bit less severe. Next time I took 1 capsule 30 minutes before, 1 about 45 minutes into my run. I felt a headache coming on later that day but this one obviously less severe so I took 1 more capsule. Headache did not continue. I did not want to post this review until I was sure it was due to SaltStick Caps that were preventing my headaches and I can confirm after a few weeks of headache free runs I have found the key. My formula now, depending on level of effort, humidity and length of run is to take 1 capsule before, 1 during and 1 within 30 minutes of completing a run. As a plus, I also get less muscle soreness and fatigue. If you suffer from headaches as I did please do yourself a favor and try SaltStick Capsules. I do not know how these compare to other electrolyte replacement capsules but I personally do not need to try any other product.

ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN... like they say, but, I'm an 80%-disabled military-retiree. My legs & feet swelled horribly, so I was put on a medication that SUCKS THE WATER OUT. That's great. However, I started having leg-cramps all the freakin' time. I tried all the MAGNESIUM/ZINC/Vitamin D pills I could find. __________________________________________________________________ This product---- I take one after every OTHER glass of water ----has turned this 68 year-old into a spring-puppy, again!
