At Healthletica, we believe that true wellness comes from within. And one fundamental aspect of wellness that often goes overlooked is proper hydration. That’s why we wanted to take a moment to address this crucial, yet often misunderstood, topic.

You see, healthy hydration isn’t just about drinking water. It’s about water plus electrolytes. When we sweat, we lose not only water but also essential electrolytes like sodium. And both of these need to be replenished to prevent muscle cramps, headaches, and energy dips. Let’s take a closer look at why this is so important.

Dehydration is less common but can have serious consequences. On the other hand, low electrolytes are much more common and can wreak havoc on our wellbeing. Surprisingly, most people only focus on replacing water and overlook the significance of electrolytes.

For decades, we have been told to drink eight glasses of water per day, regardless of whether we’re actually thirsty or not. But here’s the thing – drinking beyond your thirst is not a good idea. Thirst is our body’s way of signaling when we need more fluids. By drinking excessive amounts of plain water, we actually dilute the electrolyte levels in our blood, especially sodium. And this can lead to a range of unpleasant symptoms like headaches, low energy, cramps, confusion, and more.

To make matters more confusing, the symptoms of low-sodium levels often mimic those of dehydration. So when people experience these symptoms, they often reach for more water, thinking they are dehydrated. But in reality, they are only exacerbating the problem.

Electrolyte and sodium deficiency can be at the root of many issues faced by athletes, those who sweat excessively, individuals following whole foods or low-carb/keto diets, and those practicing intermittent or extended fasting. It’s crucial that we get this straight.

Optimal health requires hydrating with water plus electrolytes, especially sodium. And we need to steer clear of sugar-filled electrolyte drinks that are packed with dodgy ingredients and can cause blood sugar spikes.

That’s where LMNT comes in. This effective, squeaky clean, sugar-free, and super tasty electrolyte mix has been a game-changer, not just for me but for many of Healthletica’s staff and members. By adding a pack of LMNT to my water bottle first thing in the morning, I can stay hydrated throughout the day, especially during hot weather, workouts, travel, and even hot yoga classes.

So why not grab a stick pack of LMNT during your next visit to Healthletica? It’s time to truly nourish and hydrate your body from within. Embrace the power of hydration and embark on your wellness journey with us.
