On junk food it's good if it's "low sodium" but now we drink these 1000mg sodium electrolyte packets? I don't get it. Someone please explain

targeted at entirely different markets. Largely overgeneralizing here, but: low sodium junk food = marketing for generally out of shape/overweight people to make them feel less bad about their food choices 1000mg electrolyte drink = fit ppl who need to replace nutrients to meet training demands

Sodium isn't necessarily bad. For eg, if you sufficient water right before eating high-sodium food, you're 100% fine. You just can't reverse that order or ignore the water altogether. The point: It's the sodium-water balance that matters. So if you consume sodium as part of a fluid, you're not upsetting the balance.

if you're not electolyte depleted, then you don't need exogenous sodium. but if you're working out intensely, then you do. for different personas and JTBD.

Sodium relative to water consumption/loss is probably a better way to gauge the need. I think this is why LMNT markets around morning use; helps you restore water loss after 8hrs of dehydration. Otherwise unnecessary outside of endurance training. Highly individual on what's "healthy" and most still miss on potassium
