Why Staying Properly Hydrated When You Sweat is So Important

Staying properly hydrated is one of the most important things we can do for overall health. In many cases, water alone is wonderful. For times when you sweat, or if you’re on a low-carb diet, replacing lost minerals is mandatory for preventing dehydration and heat exhaustion.

If electrolytes aren’t replaced there can be bad side effects. Here’s a personal story…

Staying properly hydrated is one of the most important things we can do for overall health. In many cases, water alone is wonderful. For times when you sweat, or if you’re on a low-carb diet, replacing lost minerals is mandatory for preventing dehydration and heat exhaustion.

If electrolytes aren’t replaced there can be bad side effects. Here’s a personal story…

My husband and I finally got away for a long overdue 10-year anniversary trip. His version of “relaxing” is doing all the activities, so we were snorkeling, sailing, spending time  in the sauna, and had plans to scuba dive.

Normally, if we’re going to be out in the sun doing strenuous activities, I bring electrolytes with me. On this trip, since the kids weren’t with us, I’d foolishly forgotten electrolytes and figured I’d just make sure to drink enough water.

I started getting a headache, having a rapid pulse, dizziness, and nausea. We went back to the room and I cooled off, hydrated, and rested. But the symptoms continued to persist and I felt weaker throughout the day despite drinking A LOT of water.

Fast forward several hours later to a hospital visit, the doctor said that my electrolytes had been depleted from sweating and I was having trouble rehydrating because my body needed the minerals as much as the fluids. I was replacing the water, but not the electrolytes I needed.

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

How My family stays hydrated

LMNT Recharge, created by my friend Robb Wolf, has been saving me lately. I’ve started adding a lot more physical activity recently with yard work and fun activities like pole vaulting and weight lifting, but was feeling tired more than normal. I realized that between the extra workouts and regular sauna use, I was sweating quite a bit more than normal and wasn’t getting enough salt or electrolytes.

When I started using LMNT, I had more energy during the day and slept better at night. My kids have been drinking it too on sports days and say they noticed increased energy too. LMNT contains natural electrolytes (no stimulants or harmful additives) so it’s great for all of us any time of day.

My favorite flavor is Citrus, but I like Raspberry and Orange too. Their Raw Unflavored includes only 3 ingredients (sodium, potassium, magnesium), so it’s like the natural electrolyte drinks I’ve recommended for years with a squeeze of a lemon, lime, or splash of juice.

  • Zero Sugar Hydration, With No Harmful Additives: I’m a big fan of LMNT because it replaces vital electrolytes lost from sweating, tastes amazing, and doesn’t contain sugar, food dyes, artificial ingredients, or other harmful chemicals. Their packets are convenient to take on-the-go and are perfect for preventing heat exhaustion, muscle cramps, and headaches when my kids are playing sports.

  • Better Sleep for the Whole Family: LMNT provides the sodium we need to through the night and wake up feeling refreshed. Sodium promotes the release of vasopressin (an antidiuretic hormone) which supports deep sleep. And when my kids aren’t sleeping well and waking me up in the middle of the night, one of the first things I do is cut sugar from their diets.

  • Healthy Foundation For Life: Ensuring your kids are consuming enough electrolytes and minerals is one of the most meaningful things you can do to set them up with a healthy cellular foundation for life. Sodium, magnesium, and potassium help regulate fluid balance, regulate blood pressure, conduct nerve impulses, support nutrient absorption, regulate blood sugar levels, promote energy (ATP) production, and contribute to DNA synthesis.

Everything you need, nothing you don't

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 and getting stopped by airport security one too many times for carrying dozens of baggies full of white powder, LMNT Recharge was born.
