LMNT Formula Review
LMNT’s formula is based on science and although at first may seem sketchy, as it goes against FDA guidelines on salt intake, there are good reasons why. Firstly, independent studies have shown that the actual amount of salt needed for an optimal diet is a little less than two times as high as what the FDA recommends. This is especially true for athletes and avid gym goers who exert energy regularly and need to replenish sodium loss or those on low-carb, whole-food diets. While those with pre-existing heart conditions may need to consult a doctor before upping their salt intake, the average person can do this with no fear of increased risk of heart attack or stroke.
LMNT also features 200mg of potassium per serving. This 5 to 1 ratio of potassium to sodium is not an accident. LMNT finds that this ratio allows individuals to most easily achieve the 3:2 sodium to potassium ratio that is essential. The reason the ratio is not 3:2 in the supplement is because potassium is more regularly consumed through diet and sodium tends to be a much bigger issue for low-carb dieters, intermittent fasters, and athletes.
Finally, they feature 60 mg of magnesium. This is because up to 30% of the population is deficient and it is an essential mineral for sleep, strength, and managing anxiety, and depression. Without proper magnesium, your recovery will suffer leaving performance and gains on the table.
Thats it! LMNT’s formula is simple with no added sugars and contains only what is necessary. It is a lot more refined and science-based than competitor brands and is a great formula to fuel your physical endeavors!
