Salt Intra-Workout?

Currently my workout nutrition looks like this:

Pre 1 scoop Grow! whey + 1 scoop Carb powder + 10g BCAA

during: 3 Tbsp CHO + 10g creatine in 2L of water + tea spoon salt

Post: 2 scoops Grow! whey

I had a contributor to this site tell me to add a pinch of quality sea salt to all water I was drinking to re-mineralize it. But is there any benefit to adding salt to your workout drinks?

I know salt prevents cramping, but does it aid with workout nutrition at all?

Yes, it helps you remain hydrated.

I prefer 1/2 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt with juice of a lemon in 6-8 oz. water 30 mins before meals to remineralize. 2-3x / day.

Regular sea salt is just processed salt from the sea - needs to be an unrefined sea salt.

Cool. I’ve been using Real Salt
