Finding a solution in plain sight
As a former research biochemist and New York Times bestselling author, Robb Wolf is well-versed on the intricacies of metabolism, especially in the context of fasting and low-carb diets. And his former coaches spent years assessing and optimizing the diets of their community. This combination unlocked a powerful insight.
When Robb—frustrated with his performance on the jiu jitsu mat—came to his coaches for advice, they knew immediately: he needed to dial in his electrolytes, specifically sodium. And when he took their advice, a switch flipped, both on and off the mat.
But he wasn’t alone. Others adhering to otherwise healthy whole foods diets were exhibiting the symptoms of sodium, potassium, and magnesium deficiencies, too. Robb and his former coaches started to tinker with DIY electrolyte drink recipes and share them with their communities. It wasn’t long before people began to realize how much better they felt when they got the right amount of sodium.
In spite of a whole food diet and supplementing with extra of certain key nutrients, I would get cramps in my calves, literally every morning when I would stretch in bed. They immediately stopped when I added LMNT after reading Rob’s story.😁
