[Archives May 2011] Celtic Sea salt is a great mineral rich, flavor enhancer, preservative that I use as an electrolyte replacement. I put in every bottle of water I ride with, with one of several other adjuncts. If I am in a place where my sole water source is volumes of bottled spring water, I find that I will need to add back in some minerals from Celtic Sea salt, which is sometimes also available at our local health food stores.
Celtic Sea Salt contains natural minerals unlike table salt where the natural minerals are stripped out. Often, a craving for salt can really mean a craving for the electrolytes that naturally are in salt. The minerals in Celtic Sea Salt are an exact replacement for sweat and work wonderfully to replenish the lost electrolytes.
[Archives May 2011] It’s hot out! Are you drinking enough water? Remember the basic recommendation is 1/2 your body weight in ounces. So, at 150 pounds one would need to consume 75 ounces. This is base line. With exercise or this dry heat the volume goes up. During these summer like months I usually try to increase the volume by an additional 50%. If you have not yet gotten a good filter system we can help. Other wise spring water, possibly with a pinch of Celtic salt, is the way to go.
