Hydration Tip: Add Salt

Do you drink a lot of water but still aren’t feeling hydrated? Try adding a pinch of high quality sea salt to your water. Why? There’s something else we need to consider when it comes to hydration: electrolytes. Water depends on electrolytes for proper absorption. You could be drinking all the water in the world, but if you aren’t getting the proper balance of electrolytes, your body may not be absorbing that water.

So why add salt? Electrolytes are substances that ionize when dissolved in solvents such as water. Salts are electrolytes. So when salt is added to water, it dissolves into its component ions. These ions are electrically conductive and help receive and send messages throughout the body, and help facilitate cell hydration. This is the salt we recommend using!
