Company Statement

LAVA SALTS may aid in combating dehydration, heat prostration, lactic acid build-up and cramping during exercise.*
LAVA Salts provide the essential electrolytes that are commonly found in blood plasma. Always consume LAVA Salts with sufficient water to help your body maintain proper hydration, this enables your body to metabolize energy at intense levels while preventing muscle cramps. LAVA Salts also contain buffering systems that neutralizes the acids formed during heavy exercise. Neutralization of excess acids improve performance and reduce nausea associated with exercise in the heat.


Suggested Use
If sweating heavily, consume two caps per hour. For moderate sweating, ingest one capsule per hour. In cool weather or with very light sweating, consume one capsule every two hours. If you expect to be sweating heavily, take one capsule with at least a cup of water before you run. More is not always better. There will not be significant benefit in exceeding these amounts. Many users report better recovery ingesting one-two LAVA Salt capsules with 12-16oz of water or sport drink after workouts.

Cautions: Taking this product without fluids may result in temporary stomach upset. Keep out of reach of children: if you are pregnant, lactating or having a medical condition, consult your health care professional before using the or any nutritional supplement.

LAVA SALT Consumption tips:

1. During exercise:  Swallow capsule with sports drinks or water;  12-16.oz needs to be consumed over a half hour period to ensure proper absorption and facilitate the hydration and buffering effects of LAVA Salts formulation. 


Lava Salt Cocktails:

2. Premix 1-2 Lava Salts with 4-5oz of energy gel in a flask,  Now your energy gel is supercharged with Lava Salt.  Drink plenty of fluids with each sip of gel,  energy gels may taste salty from this mixture. 

3. Premix 1 Lava Salts with your favorite sports drink of water. Open capsule and dispense contents into fluids.  20oz of fluids to 1 salt capsule is the recommended dose for most athletes.

4. Slowly dissolve Lava Salts capsule in your mouth, wash down with 8-12oz of fluids:  This is particularly refreshing during long hot training or racing. Remember to consume more fluids than normal when consuming to ensure proper hydration. Capsules are made from pure gelatin, that dissolve within minutes of consumption.

5. After training:  Ingest 1-2 Lava Salts with 12-20 oz of fluids within an hour of finishing your training. Lava helps hydrate your muscle cells and send those precious citrates, phosphates and carbonates to help flush out muscle toxin build-up that occurs from hard training.

"Amazing Formulation"

Hi Kelly, I hope this message finds you doing well. I did a big, tough ride last week and tried your Lava Salts out for the first time (the capsules). It's a ride where I will ALWAYS get cramps if I don't have something good in the way of salt/electrolyte replacement. Your salts worked great! Thanks so much, and I'll have them with me on the Terrible Two later this month. Take good care. Ken


Hello again Kelly, you've logged enough miles and grueling efforts for a few people's lifetimes, so I can't blame you at all for wanting be comfortable! Glad you got to take advantage of some surf. The Lava Salts are bad ass! I used them again yesterday on a century with around 9500 feet of climbing. With only about 700 miles of cycling so far this year, I was able to push hard the whole way, including two big climbs in 95-deg temps. Finished in around 7.5 hours and not one cramp! Amazing formulation you have there. I wish you good health and happy times too. Ken


“The easiest products for my body to absorb while racing triathlons.”

Leigh Anne Cox / AUG.25 2004

I'd like to thank Lava Sports for helping me to qualify for the Hawaiian Ironman World Championships.

After trial and error I have found that Lava gel and Lava salts are the easiest products for my body to absorb while racing triathlons, especially the longer distance races.

I used a belt and flask system for carrying my own preferred gel (peach Lava gel) and Lava salts on the marathon portion of the Coeur D' Alene Ironman in 2004. I had a very good run as my stomach was never upset and I was able to digest those essential calories and electrolytes.

I have also started to use Lava gel and Lava salt on a consistent basis during those longer training days. It makes a big difference in the quality of my workout when I am properly fueled and hydrated.

Looking forward to Hawaii.

“Feeling in control again!”

Mark Smoothy / Ironman Race #1413

Hi Kel


My Name is (Sharky) Mark Smoothy: My friends call me Sharky, I met you in Hawaii during the Ironman week in Kona.

You were kind enough to supply my friend and I with a LAVA BELT and some flasks of your new LAVA GEL to fuel us through the Ironman, I tried your product on race day and absolutely loved it.


I normally hate energy gels, but your product was a nice surprise as is it did not make me feel sick at all. Also Hawaii was my 15th Ironman and I don't know if your gel is responsible for this, but for the first time in 15 Ironmans I didn't suffer from cramps. Consuming your LAVA GEL and the LAVA SALTS capsules were the only two things I did different on that day from my past 14 Ironmans.

My results at Hawaii are very ordinary to say the least. I finished in 12 hours and 40 minute. I did a very silly thing and competed while being sick with a flu, (Just plain bad timing) But there was no way I was leaving Hawaii without my finishers medal!

I would like to share a story about how good I think your LAVA GEL is.

I live in Japan , I am a very competitive Short course athlete, I was invited back to a Triathlon in Japan in that I won the previous year. The problem with this race was it was only on week after the Hawaii Ironman, I had two flasks of your gel with me. I came out of the water in this short course race with the leaders, finished the bike 2nd and placed 3rd overall. Yes I didn't win, but I didn't think I would even finish let alone crack the top 3 overall. Every time I started to fall in a hole during the race I would consume a mouthful of your gel and within a few minutes I was feeling in control again. Thank you for finally bringing nutrition products to the Tri market that really work.
