Speaking about the motivation behind the brand, co-founder George Heaton explains that his goal was to create a product to support his active lifestyle and training routine. “I wanted a product that provided the salt I needed to support all of the exercise I do, without the unnecessary ingredients such as sugar and caffeine,” Heaton says.

Cadence previously soft-launched in the UK and has built a waitlist of over 10,000 people in the US.
