Why Electrolytes are Critical for Low-Carb Athletes

Proper hydration is critical for optimizing mental and physical performance.

Hydration is not just about drinking enough water - to stay properly hydrated you need to consume adequate electrolytes. They help your nerve impulses fire, regulate fluid balance, help produce energy, and support strong bones.

Why Electrolytes are Critical for Low-Carb Athletes

Proper hydration is critical for optimizing mental and physical performance.

Hydration is not just about drinking enough water - to stay properly hydrated you need to consume adequate electrolytes. They help your nerve impulses fire, regulate fluid balance, help produce energy, and support strong bones.

One article in the Journal of Sport Science reported:

“Vigorous exercise and warm/hot weather induce sweat production, which contains both water and electrolytes. Daily water (4-10 L) and sodium (3500-7000 mg) losses in active athletes during hot weather exposure can induce water and electrolyte deficits…”

When you’re physically active and sweat, replacing lost sodium is essential to feel and perform your best. But many athletes forget about sodium and drink more water when they feel dehydrated - the more common problem for these folks is drinking too much water, not too little. Overwatering dilutes blood sodium levels, causing a dangerous condition called hyponatremia - which can lead to headaches, muscle cramps, and fatigue.

This deficiency increases even more when you follow a low-carb diet - reduced carb intake means no processed foods, which make up 70% of our dietary sodium intake. When you cut these out of the equation, you are likely not getting enough sodium. To add insult to injury, your kidneys excrete even more sodium when your carb intake is low. This is why those with a low-carb lifestyle often complain of unpleasant symptoms like headaches, muscle cramps, and fatigue. For optimal performance, we need to pay attention to electrolyte and mineral intake - and our needs increase even more when we sweat or follow a low-carb diet.

we developed lmnt because we were frustrated with a lack of healthy options on the market.

How I hydrate for peak performance

Whether I’m rolling or doing a MovNat session, I’m constantly moving and sweating throughout the day - which means I need to pay extra attention to my hydration. Unfortunately, our modern day filtered water no longer provides the precious minerals I lose when I sweat.

On top of that, if I’m eating a diet more aligned with our human genetics - paleo, low-carb, or carnivore - I have an even greater electrolyte need if I want to optimize my performance.

I use LMNT Recharge whenever I need a boost for my MovNat/Natural Movement or Jiu Jitsu training - it gives me the perfect amount of electrolytes I need to perform my best, without any of the sugar or artificial ingredients my body simply doesn’t need. I also love that it comes in grab-and-go packets so that I can bring extra with me on all of my hikes and hunting trips. Water without electrolytes just won't do the trick - LMNT takes my hydration to the next level!

WE CREATED LMNT TO SOLVE PROBLEMS.

We developed LMNT Recharge because we were frustrated with the lack of healthful electrolyte products on the market. We were fielding questions daily from people in our communities struggling to get adequate electrolytes, but could not recommend anything on the market.

The hard truth is that available electrolyte products are high in sugar and woefully lacking in actual electrolytes. Based on the latest nutritional science, getting adequate electrolytes through these products equates to over 100 grams of added sugar per day. We don’t think anyone needs this amount of sugar.

For years our recommended solution was to buy electrolytes in bulk and make your own electrolyte home-brews. After spending too many hours meticulously measuring and mixing our own electrolyte homebrews, LMNT Recharge was born.
