When are Isotonic Drinks worth drinking?
HOIST was actually created by some hard partying college grads as a way to “cure” a hangover. So if you are going for a night on the town take an Isotonic Drink with you to finish off the night and improve your morning.
Dr. Mark knoblauch discussed how living a low sodium diet has helped him live with greatly reduced symptoms of his Menier's and BPVD.
If you are not sweating and burning electrolytes and calories or have a need for low sodium in your life seek medical advice first.
