MOVERS & SHAK­ERS

Fur­ther jus­ti­fi­ca­tion, if needed, for salt­ing your wounds

MAIN­TAIN ME­TAB­O­LISM

Io­dine de­fi­ciency can lead to thy­roid is­sues, stalling me­tab­o­lism. If you don’t eat seafood, a pinch of iodised salt on your chicken breast will keep things tick­ing over.

RE­COVER FASTER

Sodium lost through sweat dur­ing a tough weights ses­sion can cause cramp­ing and in­hibit mus­cle re­pair if not re­placed. Add a few flakes to your shakes.

STAY HY­DRATED

When train­ing in the heat, a pre-work­out hit of salt – with plenty of wa­ter, of course – can help you stay ad­e­quately hy­drated. Try a supp like SIS Go Elec­trolyte.
