    Endurolytes Fizz and not plain water for long distance - hammer nutrition

    I was wondering. I tried out the Endurolytes Fizz by hammer nutrition and put it in my water bottle. I like the small zip feeling from each sip.
    Now i often do many endurance events of over 6 hours riding time.
    Would i be ok to just drink Endurolytes Fizz and not just plain water instead?

    Or would I be dehydrating myself or doing any bad by not drinking plain water? or is it just base of personal perference?

    The zip you get from each sip is likely the tyosine. I haven't seen any studies myself showing that much sodium as an electrolyte having a negative impact on long distance runs.

    Me personally, would probably just sip on a powdered BCAA mixed with water. I did that when I ran a tough mudder event.
