Salt Stains

Have you ever had salt stains on your skin or clothing after or during a tough workout? I have experienced this in the past myself. I always wondered if this was the norm or was I doing something wrong with my diet or fluid, supplement intake. Here is a response from Dr. Bill Misner, Ph.D. who frequently writes for Hammer Nutrition. Generally, salt stains are an indication of profuse fluid loss response to hyperthermia, excessive dietary sodium intake above needs or a combination of both conditions. The average American diet packs in around 6000-8000 mg of sodium when the body only requires 500 mg each day, with a high upper recommendation of 2400 mg. The more profuse one perspires, the higher the rate of sodium excreted, hence the salt stains relative to diet or rate of fluid loss. Of course, we are keeping it simple and not weighting this down with too much research data. This is something to think about next time you notice those salt stains on your favorite dry fit shirt after an intense workout. Trainer Todd
