|Sportlegs' Product Information
If you're familiar with the "burn" of muscles pushed to their performance limit, prepare to be pleasantly surprised. Discover SportLegs, the healthiest way to raise your performance limit. So you can reach higher.
As the label shows, SportLegs' primary ingredients are nothing more than premium natural-source compounds of calcium, magnesium and vitamin D, inside vegetarian capsules. No additives, fillers, flow agents or excipients that might upset your stomach. Listed "Other Ingredients" are primarily the natural cellulose-derived vegetarian capsule, which includes a tiny amount of water. The sucrose, cornstarch, gelatin and dl-alpha-tocopherol (Vitamin E) are in truly microscopic amounts. They're ingredients of the "beadlet" coating around the tiny particles of Vitamin D to maintain potency of this sensitive vitamin during production and the product's three-year shelf life. The Vitamin D is refined from soy oil, so we list the remote possibility of soy's presence in accordance with stringent FDA allergen labeling requirements. Healthy, and legal for international competition. So how do they do so much more than ordinary calcium-magnesium supplements?
The form determines the function.
The patented SportLegs difference is that they use premium lactate (not lactose) compounds of these healthy vitamins and minerals. When you take SportLegs an hour before sports, they raise your blood lactate level, just like what ordinarily happens during sports. Elevated blood lactate is the signal which tells tells muscles not to make so much lactic acid. The result: Your muscles don't make more lactic acid than they need for you to perform at your very best. With less painful muscle "burn" during sports, and less soreness afterward. Depending on how competitive you are, you'll either think of SportLegs as a pain preventative, or a performance enhancer. Or maybe a little of both. Either way, you're going to love it.
How much do I take?
Take one SportLegs capsule per 50 pounds body weight, rounding up. In other words, if you weigh 125 pounds, take three capsules.
When do I take it?
Take SportLegs one hour before sports or warmup exercise. Unlike ordinary vitamins, you don't have to take SportLegs every day. And there's no "loading" phase where you have to take it for a week or longer before you feel results. You'll feel the difference in your performance an hour after your first dose. Re-dose your full weight-appropriate dose every two to three hours for sustained sports or tournaments. And a dose at the end of activity enhances recovery.

How is SportLegs different from ordinary calcium/magnesium supplements?
Ordinary "cal/mag" supplements are typically carbonate, citrate, phosphate or gluconate compounds. SportLegs uses lactate (not lactose) compounds of these minerals. Lactate accounts for 86.4% of the capsules’ ingredients, and is the key to why SportLegs makes a difference you can feel in an hour, and ordinary "cal-mag" supplements don't.
Is it my imagination, or does the "burn" really get worse with age?
It's not your imagination: The "burn" and the next-day soreness really do get worse with age. Just as your safe maximum heart rate declines through middle age, your Lactate Threshold (the "burn" point) declines by a percent to a percent-and-a-half each year. It's the biggest reason people quit sports during their peak earning years. The older you get, the more you'll appreciate how SportLegs lets you figuratively turn back the calendar. You don't have to act your age.
Is SportLegs safe?
SportLegs’ ingredients have been Generally Recognized As Safe by our FDA for more than twenty years. At the appropriate body-weight dosage, the federal Institute of Medicine recognizes these ingredients as safe enough for a one-year-old.
It almost feels like cheating. Is SportLegs legal?
SportLegs’ ingredients remain legal for all competition sanctioned by WADA, USADA, UCI, IOC and NCAA authorities. They have been used to legally win state, National and World championships.
What about cross-contamination risk?
Top-ranked athletes can't take chances their supplements might be cross-contaminated with Prohibited Substances. Neither can we. So we don't allow any substances listed in the current World Anti-Doping Code Prohibited List inside our manfacturing facilities. Our facilities operate under strict Good Manufacturing Practice guidelines. Production room dust collection systems are employed, and all equipment and utensils are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after each manufacturing step to prevent cross-contamination.
Any side effects?
Any supplement rich in calcium can reduce the effectiveness of tetracycline prescriptions, typically prescribed for skin problems like acne. Beyond that, SportLegs can help maintain good bone health. And help fill your trophy case.
Can I take SportLegs on an empty stomach?
Almost certainly. The majority of SportLegs users do. Even customers who are bothered by many other supplements find SportLegs is the exception to the rule. In the last five years, only one customer has contacted us to report an upset stomach after taking SportLegs, and he admitted his symptoms just might have been caused by the liter of tequila(!) he had enjoyed the night before.
Does SportLegs replace my electrolyte supplements?
No. In fact, since SportLegs allows you to go harder, longer, it’s prudent to increase your intake of hydration and electrolyte products after taking it. We recommend Accelerade, Cytomax, or the many fine Hammer Nutrition products.
Can I overdose on SportLegs?
Hardly. Athletes have been using SportLegs for 24-hour, RAAM and Ultra events for years, re-dosing every two hours, with no adverse effects. However, it’s prudent to consider your total daily supplemental magnesium intake. The Institute of Medicine’s Dietary Reference Intakes for magnesium note that while a majority of subjects comfortably tolerate 1200mg of supplemental magnesium per day, more than 350mg of total supplemental magnesium per day can cause loose bowels for the very most sensitive subjects. If you’re taking a daily magnesium supplement, you might want to skip it on days you’re taking SportLegs until you know how sensitive your system is.
If I take it too often, will I develop an immunity to SportLegs?
Will I have to take more to achieve the same effect?
No. We've been using SportLegs ourselves since 1987. It still works as well as it did twenty years ago (we wish everything else worked as well as it did twenty years ago). Seven years of feedback from amateur and pro athletes concurs.
Is SportLegs addictive?
Strictly speaking, no. But what can become addictive, honestly, is the endorphin rush you get from higher-performance sports without the usual "burn" and soreness downsides. Ask any marathoner, triathlete or ultra-distance competitor. Especially if they use SportLegs.
