Our expert says:
If you are working out at the gym with ever increasing intensity then, your body will require more sodium (found in table salt which is sodium chloride) and potassium. I would suggest that you use a sports drink (Energade, Powerade, etc) which contain sodium and potassium, during your exercise session to boost your intake of these 2 so-called electrolyte. If you sweat a lot, then you will lose more salt (sodium) than if you were inactive.
