September 5, 2008, Newsletter Issue #342: Sodium for Muscle Cramps

Tip of the Week

Get salty! If you´re doing heavy exercise in hot weather, you may find muscle cramps become a problem. Often, this can be solved by adding a little salt to your sports nutrition diet, especially if you ordinarily avoid salt. Your body can lose up to 2,000mg of sodium in hot and severe conditions! Sports nutrition drinks and a sports nutrition supplement with sodium work too. If the cramps persist, check with a doctor to rule out serious conditions.
