What ingredients are in LMNT?
How many packs can I drink of LMNT per day?
Determining how many packets to consume daily is quite dependent on the individual. First, it’s important to note that LMNT is meant to supplement your electrolyte intake - it should not be your sole source of electrolytes in a day. Although there is no one-size-fits-all approach, the clinical data demonstrates targeting 5-7g of sodium 1-3g of potassium, and 250-500mg of magnesium throughout the day from various sources, ideally from predominantly whole foods. We hear that many folks find 1-2 packets per day to be optimal, often depending on their activity level. Others use more.
When should I drink LMNT?
LMNT is great to use in a variety of situations - we receive feedback across quite a broad spectrum in that regard.
So here's the short answer: The most common usage is first thing in the morning, and about 30 mins prior to a workout, high-intensity activity, or when mental clarity is at a premium. A good thing to remember is when it comes to replacing lost electrolytes–preparing ahead of time is much better than chasing them afterward.
We certainly encourage you to test out what works best for them, and to let us know–we are always eager for feedback!
What is the source of the citric acid?
The citric acid is manufactured by a submerged fermentation process which employs a strain of the micro-organism aspergillus niger to convert a dextrose carbohydrate substrate into citric acid. Aspergillus Niger is a ubiquitous, non-GMO and non-pathogenic organism. The citric acid used in LMNT is rigorously tested and does not contain corn.
Is LMNT only for people following keto or fasting lifestyles?
No, LMNT was designed to provide the best electrolyte drink mix ever. While the product is naturally keto and fasting-friendly, LMNT is formulated so anyone can meet their electrolyte needs without adding unhealthy ingredients to their diet.

MORE SALT, NOT LESS.
Although not as controversial as discussing politics at a family gathering, hydration and electrolytes are hot button topics.
While we are generally admonished to reduce our sodium intake, particularly for cardiovascular health, this practice has proven to be largely ineffective in mitigating health issues such as hypertension (high blood pressure).
The position taken by the FDA, CDC, and American Heart Association recommends that Americans consume less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day, with an “ideal” limit of 1,500 mg per day for adults. However, broad-ranging, population-level research suggests that sodium intakes at the levels routinely suggested by the medical establishment may be far more dangerous than levels much higher than current recommendations.
HEALTH PROBLEMS AND SALT
A 2011 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association looking at sodium intake and cardiovascular events, such as stroke and heart attack, paints an interesting (and different) picture. The likelihood of health problems was quite high in individuals consuming less than 2g of sodium per day, the lowest rate of events was at about 5g per day of sodium intake. This is more than double what is recommended by the AHA, FDA, and CDC. What is particularly interesting is the study’s authors noted that one must get as high as 8g of sodium per day to see the same degree of problems as below 2g per day of intake.
SALT AND BLOOD PRESSURE
Another study published in Preventive Medicine found that not only was sodium restriction ineffective in hypertensive patients, those who consumed lower than 2.5g per day of sodium had consistently HIGHER blood pressure than those who consumed larger amounts. It’s important to note that this study was done in a population that one could reasonably assume a reduction in sodium intake might actually be helpful - but it was not.
These studies involved a population of people with known cardiovascular disease. What if we are thinking about healthy or physically active populations, where the electrolyte requirement is even higher?
ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIVE AN ACTIVE
KETOGENIC OR FASTING LIFESTYLE
Each day it becomes more clear that recommendations for low sodium intakes are dubious even for folks who are not healthy, but this sodium-electrolyte phobia has spilled over into the world of athletics and has had profound negative effects.
