95. Jonathan Toker Ph.D., Founder Saltstick® & Elite Athlete On Electrolytes, Hydration and Fueling for Life

Jonathan Toker, Ph.D., is the Founder of Salstick® and Toker Engineering, LLC. He is also an elite level trail runner and triathlete, former pro triathlete, with his Ph.D in Organic Chemistry from The Scripps Research Institute and is the Slowtwitch Science editor.

For Jonathan, It all began in mid-2002, as a long-distance professional triathlete competing in long distance triathlon races, he grew weary of taping electrolyte capsules on his bike top tube. One race in particular, it was raining and his capsules turned to mush except the section under the electrical tape he used, and while he managed to finish that race with some salt in his system, he decided there had to be a better way to hold and dispense capsules, Saltstick® was born in 2006 and is now sold in over 40 countries around the world

On today’s episode, Jonathan and I are talking about the importance of hydration and electrolytes during endurance sports, everyday activities, and how Salstick®  is helping treat patients with chronic illness.   Jonathan turned his passion for endurance sports and chemistry into a career that he loves.
