NUTRITION FERNANDA MACIEL,
Ultra Trail Runner (Winner of Trangrancanaria, Ultra Trail Mt Fuji, TDS,...) is also a sport nutritionist. After getting her degree in "Nutrition, pharmacy and suplementary food" at Barcelona University, Fernanda now offers her clients 3 different diets: for normal days / for long or tough training days / for race day. She shares with us all her secrets to her constant tness and well-being. She reminds us this week how important hydration is...
I’M FEELING DEHYDRATED. I HAVE CRAMPS OR DIARREHA OR VOMITING”
ELETROLYTES TEXT FERNANDA MACIEL // PHOTOS COMPRESSPORT
“I’m feeling dehydrated”. “I have cramps or diarreha or vomiting”… Maybe you have to take some “eletrolytes”. Muscle contraction is dependent upon the presence of calcium (Ca2+), sodium (Na+), and potassium (K+). Without sufficient levels of these key electrolytes, muscle weakness or severe muscle contractions may occur. The eletrolytes are great for effective rehydration during your competition or a long hiking or against effects of alcohol or an

international travel. Why? Sodium is the main electrolyte found in extracellular fluid and is involved in fluid balance and blood pressure control. The primary ions of electrolytes are sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), calcium (Ca2+), magnesium (Mg2+), chloride (Cl−), hydrogen phosphate (HPO42−), and hydrogen carbonate (HCO3−). The symbols of electric charge (+) and (−) indicate that the substance is ionic in nature and has an imbalanced distribution of
electrons, the result of chemical dissociation. When the table salt, NaCl, is placed in water, the salt (a solid) dissolves into its component ions, according to the dissociation reaction: NaCl(s)
Na+(aq) + Cl−(aq)
Note that molten salts can be electrolytes as well. For instance, when sodium chloride is molten, the liquid conducts electricity. Such gradients affect and regulate the hydration of the body as well as blood PH and muscle function and
nerve. Both muscle tissue and neurons are considered electric tissues of the body. Serious eletrolyte disturbances such as dehydratation or overhydration, may lead to neurologial and cardiac complications. If you run a triathlon or a marathon or do some exercises in extreme conditions (for three or more hours continuously) and you don’t consume electrolytes, you risk dehydration. A simple electrolyte drink can be home-made by using the correct proportions of water, salt, sugar, salt substitute for potassium and baking soda.
The electrolytes are commonly found in coconut water, sports drinks, fruit juices, vegetables juices or you can take one capsule of eletrolyte manipulated. Usually doctors and sport nutritionist suggested use one capsule per 60 minutes during the activity. You can find different brands manipulating eletrolytes. In most of them each capsule contains: 215 mg sodium, 63 mg potassium, 22 mg calcium, 11 mg magnesium. It doesn’t contain any World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) or International Olympic Committee (IOC) banned substances.
Here you have an example of eletrolyte capsule of Salt Stick brand: 1 CAPSULE EACH CONTAINS
Sodium (as 550 mg sodium chloride)
Potassium (as potassium citrate and potassium chloride)
Calcium (as calcium citrate and calcium gluconate)
Magnesium (as magnesium citrate and magnesium gluconate)
Chloride (as sodium chloride, potassium chloride)
These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Usually each sport man or woman needs a right quantity of eletrolyte. Important to know about the weather where they are training or racing, which sport they practice, the weight or cellular system of this person.

THIS WEEK IN PHILIPPINES A FEW WORDS BY HECTOR YUZON... SHARING WITH YOU MY ECSTATIC FINISH FROM XTERRA GUAM, ALSO THE LAST LEG OF THE XTERRA TRIPLE CROWN 2013
To put things in perspective, there are only 16 Xterra Triple Crown finishers in the world, 8 of them are pro athletes, 8 age groupers, and 2 of them are from the Philippines :D
FEEDBACK ON COMPRESSPORT: TRI SHORTS – great quad compression, even more great is the grip on the www.compressport.com
saddle – this surpassed my expected benefits from the shorts. The very minimal contact that I sometimes have with the saddle due to set back, switchback, or sitting on the tip while climbing kept me in control of the bike. Also, there was countless times where I had to slide down on my bum and do multiple river crossings – and I am so impressed at the durability of the fabric.
CALF SLEEVES – I ran them through bamboo shards, twigs, and branches sticking out and no scratches! And as I went in the river I slipped on more than one occasion heavily scathing my calves against the unseen rocks underneath and when I got out to inspect them, again, no scratch or run! This brand is by far the most that I have abused in terms of racing and training. MARCH 2013 // WEEKLY NEWS THIS WEEK IN PHILIPPINES// 07
