Electrolyte Replacement - The Lore of Running

"...drinking water at high rates during exercise produces a progressive fall in serum sodium concentrations, which is reduced by ingesting a popular sports drink with a sodium concentration of only 18 mmol per liter."

"As runners are not at risk of developing deficiencies of either magnesium or potassium during exercise, neither needs to be replaced until after exercise."
