How much salt do runners really need?
from Runner's World
Salty sweaters, put down those tortilla chips: You may not need extra salt after all. For years sports publications, including Runner’s World, sports dietitians, and researchers have advised runners with “salty sweat” (usually trademarked by white, crusty stains left on clothing during hot runs) to ingest more salt. The idea was that because you lost more sodium than the average athlete, you needed to be fastidious in replacing it. But a new paper published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism is challenging that logic.
