If you’re reading this, you’re probably dehydrated. In fact, according to the National Library of Medicine, “75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.” This is particularly bad because the human body is “55% to 65% of water.” Just drinking water probably isn’t cutting it, either. We need to step up our hydration game and the answer to solving our chronic dehydration is unequivocally balancing our electrolytes. If you want your brain to function better, get more restful sleep, or improve your athletic performance, you need to be properly hydrated.
We have become unapologetic champions of LMNT electrolytes since we started using them a few months ago at the recommendation of highly experienced mid-life distance competitor David Richman. Since then, we are finding the more often we mention LMNT, the more people we find are already using it, and have been using it for years. Truthfully, it gives us a sense of past FOMO, as it has taken us so long to get hip to something so helpful yet so simple.
For instance, we asked Anissa Buckley of b-untethered if she had ever tried it, and this is what we heard back:
“I have used several electrolyte products over the years while competing in Ironman triathlons, ultras, and cycling contests. I used to take salt tablets during my events. What I love about LMNT is the product’s simplicity – just adding to water and the taste. Often, electrolyte powders are too sweet, leaving a bad aftertaste in my mouth. I found LMNT Raspberry to be great-tasting and super effective. In fact, I used it while climbing Mount Humphreys (elev. 12,500) last week in Flagstaff. I felt energetic and strong the whole way up. Thanks, LMNT!”
The conversation seems to never be around how good the product is at replacing electrolytes and keeping us hydrated, that is simply a given with LMNT. The conversation usually goes to which flavor people like most. It’s amusing when other people are around, as they have no idea what we are talking about when the discussion inevitably turns to “Lemon Habanero, or Orange Salt?” This is sort of like people discussing which color Porsche they most like, not if the Porsche is a great vehicle.
I now don’t drink regular water at the gym or the sauna. It just doesn’t absorb as well as when I add LMNT. They have figured out the exact mix of minerals including magnesium, potassium, and sodium to replace the ones I am losing and to aid hydration. Unlike some of the other electrolyte products out there, LMNT tastes great. I don’t have to suffer some horrid taste in order to stay hydrated. LMNT is also keto, paleo, and vegan friendly with no weird ingredients.
LMNT has been nice enough to offer AGEIST readers a free 8 serving sample pack with any purchase through DrinkLMNT.com/AGEIST. My fav flavor is Citrus Salt. Let us know which one is yours and we will publish it.
