My Bikram yoga teacher told me I needed to take electrolytes before and after 90-minute Bikram yoga classes. Melissa Hartwig told me that 90-minutes of sweating was not enough to make me need an electrolyte supplement. I don't know what you are doing, but keep in mind that most people do not eat real food like we do during a Whole30. You may not need electrolytes at all.


Sorbitol is sugar alcohol, not okay. Polyethylene glycol is used as a laxative. I am sure they have a reason for including it, but it is a curious part of the mix.

Shoot. Well I am training for a tri and get pretty sweaty...plus it is hot as heck outside. Did a 5 mile loop running with some walking...not that much exertion but sweaty hot!

Ok, will skip the nunn tabs, they just seemed like a good way to add electrolytes and make my water more interesting. No biggie.

Thanks for the quick response.

Healthy abbey...hadn't considered the pinch of salt, great idea.

I start to feel a little flooded with too much water, so I am trying to mix things up. Usually a squeeze of lemon or lime in sparkling mineral water does the trick, but I have low blood pressure and always worry that I am low on salt. Good suggestion, thanks!
