SaltStick FastChews Tropical Mango

Read/Write Reviews

FastChews are chewable electrolyte tablets made with natural ingredients, designed for rapid hydration.

Because of their unique format, the electrolytes are absorbed through the lining of the mouth, which studies have shown to take in certain nutrients up to four times faster compared to ingestion via the intestines.

FastChews do not need to be mixed with water, so there’s no powders, no waiting and no mess.

    Product FAQs

    1. Can FastChews be dissolved in water to create a sports drink?

    We don’t recommend it. We designed SaltStick FastChews to be eaten directly, so they aren’t very soluble in water.

    2. How many FastChews equals one SaltStick Capsule? Why is the electrolyte concentration lower?

    Approximately 4 FastChews equals 1 SaltStick Capsule, and all four electrolytes are scaled accordingly. The lower amount of electrolytes in FastChews helps ensure they taste good and supports electrolyte intake in smaller doses.

    3. How should FastChews be stored?

    Unopened packets or bottles of FastChews should be stored at room temperature and under dry conditions for the longest shelf life. Opened packets and bottles should be kept sealed and used as soon as practical.

    4. What happens if FastChews get wet?

    FastChews will be affected by moisture as salt tends to absorb moisture from the air, eventually causing the tablet to fall apart. This is a cosmetic change, not a safety issue. However, from a practical standpoint, the tablet won’t be as easy to consume. Sealed packets and bottles of FastChews are moisture-resistant and should survive exposure to sweat and moisture during exercise.

    5. Do I need to take FastChews with water?

    FastChews can be consumed with or without water, depending on personal preference and circumstances. You will still need some source of hydration over time, but you can drink when you need fluid, and take FastChews when you need electrolytes.

    6. Can I suck on FastChews or do I need to chew and swallow?

    Yes. You will absorb electrolytes quickly through buccal tissue (inside your mouth, under your tongue) so if you prefer, you can keep FastChews in your mouth until they dissolve fully. We recommend that you wait 5-10 minutes before drinking water to maximize the effectiveness of FastChews.

    7. Why isn’t there vitamin D in FastChews?

    We formulated FastChews without vitamin D because adding it would have reduced product shelf life. Moreover, vitamin D can be found in many sports nutrition products so we felt adding it to FastChews was unnecessary in most cases. If you or your physician determine that the addition of vitamin D is helpful, we suggest trying SaltStick Caps or Caps Plus, or adding a specific vitamin D supplement to your nutrition routine.

    8. Why is sodium citrate used rather than sodium chloride?

    Sodium citrate provides sodium in a form that is readily available to the body, while causing minimal stomach upset. For individuals with sensitive stomachs, especially during intense exercise, sodium citrate is an ideal source of sodium compared to sodium chloride (table salt). Also, it tastes less “salty” than table salt. Most SaltStick products contain sodium citrate instead of sodium chloride.

    9 Are FastChews considered organic?

    No. FastChews contain ingredients that are derived from organic and non-organic agriculture practices. Due to lack of availability, not all ingredients can be sourced organically, but we use organic ingredients whenever possible.

    10. Is there color added?

    We do not add color to FastChews.

    11. Are FastChews suitable for children and youth sports?

    Yes. FastChews have been formulated to be safe for children when used under parental supervision. FastChews, when paired with water, provide a convenient and healthy alternative to sports drinks, which often contain high amounts of sugar and artificial coloring.

    12. What is the maximum amount of FastChews recommended per day?

    The suggested maximum usage per day for adults is 15 tablets.

    13. My FastChews show some brown spots of discoloration. What’s wrong?

    With humidity and in warmer conditions, the ingredients in FastChews (sugars and amino acids) can react via the Maillard reaction to create white and brown spots. This is similar to the reaction that gives browned foods their flavor (e.g. coffee roasting or toasting bread). It’s harmless and while visually unappealing, does not affect the performance or safety of FastChews. We suggest keeping the unused product in cool and dry conditions to avoid discoloration.

    Electrolytes can be the difference between finishing as a champ, or struggling with fatigue, cramping and nausea. SaltStick mirrors the electrolyte breakdown in sweat more closely than any other product.
