It’s no secret that Summer is just around the corner which means temperatures are starting to heat up. Make sure you have a plan to stay extra hydrated.

It’s easy to forget that our sweat isn’t just water. But why is it that we only down a glass of water after a long run or a hot day? Our sweat consists of water and salt, so next time you’re reaching for that glass of water … remember to replenish those electrolytes.

After years of mixing his own electrolyte blends, and frustration with healthy options on the market, LMNT Co-Founder and former Navy SEAL, Robb Wolf, used his experience as a biochemist to create his own product.

LMNT is your chance for a clean electrolyte boost after a long summer day or intense workout. They taste great making it the perfect cocktail mixer or hangover cure.
