Determining how many packets to consume daily is quite dependent on the individual. First, it’s important to note that LMNT is meant to supplement your electrolyte intake - it should not be your sole source of electrolytes in a day. Although there is no one-size-fits-all approach, the clinical data demonstrates targeting 4-6g of sodium, 1-3g of potassium, and 250-500mg of magnesium throughout the day from various sources, ideally from predominantly whole foods. We hear that many folks find 1-2 packets per day to be optimal, often depending on their activity level. Others use more.
