Salty AF is the slogan for LMNT, the no sugar, no gluten, no dodgy ingredients, paleo-keto, and vegan-friendly electrolyte with lots of salt. Stop…right there! I know you think salt isn’t good and too much is deadly. However, science reveals that low sodium levels are harmful (especially when training), and the optimal range is nearer to 5-7g daily rather than the FDA recommendation of 2.3g. The ultimate recipe is 1,000mg sodium, 200mg potassium, and 60mg magnesium. The flavors are exceptional. This is salt on a mission! Go for the value bundle and feel your body change—sleep better, think better, live better. Note: Salt supports healthy fasting.
