How VPA’s Lyte-Caps Caps optimises youVPA’s Lyte-Caps combines the essential electrolytes and carbohydrates to replenish your body after intense exercise. When exercising, these nutrients are generally lost through sweating, especially when exercising in hot weather; excessive loss of electrolytes can severely impede performance and limit your potential.
If you are a regular user of drinks such as Lucozade, Powerade or Gatorade during your workouts but are on the lookout for something to enhance your performance even further, save you money, and have the convenience of a capsule…then VPA Lyte-Caps is for you!
- Contains all the essential electrolytes.
- Helps increase endurance and performance.
- Assists with rehydration.
- Ideal for warm climate training
Electrolyte Caps are best taken directly before or during intense training sessions.
A dose of 2400mg (4 capsules) provides the equivalent of 660mg of pure electrolytes.
100% Pharmaceutical grade Magnesium L Aspartate, Potassium Phosphate, Sodium Chloride, Calcium Citrate. Capsules contain Gelatin.

During exercise, water and electrolyte loss occur, primarily with sweat, which results changes in fluid and electrolyte balance. This is a major concern, in particular for all athletes competing in events held in hot climates due to the increase in fluid and electrolyte imbalance. Intake of large amount of plain water during and post-exercise has been observed to reduce plasma osmolarity and plasma sodium concentration. Both of these factors will stimulate urine production where electrolytes will be drained from the body with urine.
Sports drink have been extensively studied over the years with a view to the optimisation of the formulation to increase exercise performance. According to some studies, the aim of sports drinks is to provide water to counteract the effects of dehydration and also carbohydrate source to supplement the body’s limited endogenous stores (Maughan et al, 1994). Sports drinks generally have electrolytes added to it to replace electrolytes lost in sweat, normally beneficial for post-exercise but not highly essential during exercise period when only containing electrolytes and glucose.
VPA has developed an electrolyte drink that can be consumed during and post workout with the addition of essential amino acids that not only provide hydration but can also increase endurance, strength, intensity and recovery. Below is the following nutrients formulated in VPA Electrolytes.
- Electrolytes - formulation in sports drink usually includes sodium and potassium as these two major ions are lost in sweat and urine after workout. The addition of sodium to rehydration beverages can be justified on two accounts. Firstly, sodium stimulates glucose absorption in the small intestine. The active co-transport of glucose and sodium creates an osmotic gradient that acts to promote net water absorption and the rate of rehydration is therefore greater when glucose-sodium chloride solutions are consumed than when plain water is ingested. Secondly, if volume of plain water ingested is sufficiently large, replacement of sweat losses with plain water will lead to haemodilution. Haemodilution refers to the increase in the volume of plasma in relation to red blood cells, which can reduce the desire to drink and can potentially lead to hyponatraemia, an electrolyte disturbance whereby the sodium ion concentration in the plasma is lower than normal. In other words, ingestion of glucose-electrolyte solution after dehydration have been found to result in smaller urine output and more complete restoration of plasma volume than ingestion of plain water. Similarly, potassium is also a major ion of the intracellular fluid that may aid rehydration by enhancing the retention of water in the intracellular space. Small quantities of other electrolytes such as potassium, chloride, magnesium and calcium may be added to the solution in order to support electrolyte replacement and providing other benefits such as increasing muscle recovery and reducing muscle soreness.
