What’s the big deal if there’s a ton of sodium in it (barring your having a serious medical condition)? You’re already drinking a gallon or two of water a day. Of course you are. From what I understand your body adjusts quite well to a higher level of sodium as long as you maintain hydration. Then, should you decide to cut for a contest or something, dropping from 5kmg/day to 2kmg/day (arbitrary numbers) while maintaining your water intake is much easier and more palatable than dropping from 2kmg to 500mg.

In general, unless your doctor tells you to limit sodium or you have kidney problems, you don’t need to limit sodium. If your body is functioning normally, you just dump the excess sodium. Plus it makes you thirsty, which is good. Because then you’ll drink more water.
