What is a salty/effective snack I could quickly grab and eat if I'm feeling dizzy in class?

      I bought a specific brand of salt called Celtic Salt. I put a couple of granular on my tongue and it tremendously helps.

      Thank you, I didn't even think about saltines and will definitely try them. Is there a specific brand of electrolytes that you would recommend?

        @pink_sky I personally use Liquid IV. It tastes better than other brands I've tried and a lot of brands have lower levels of sodium

      Thank you, I've had a look and not sure what one to get. Is there a specific brand you would recommend or are they all pretty similar?

      I like liquid IV. It helps me immensely and keeps you hydrated

      I like saltines, but making sure you're getting enough sodium and electrolytes throughout the day is really important. I use Liquid IV and I definitely feel worse on the days when I'm not having enough of it (like today - oops). I've heard others take sodium capsules every day. My naturopath just told me I should be having 2-3 liters of water a day and at least half of that should have electrolytes. Hope any of that helps!

        @RainbowNarwhal i totally agree. I had increased the water intake using Gatorade type drinks, it wasnt until i added Liquid IV that i really started feeling better. Due to other conditions, my doc said I could eat as much salt as i could consume as long as I avoid salt tablets. This is like middle ground. Anyway, i can even see the improvement in the moisture that gets to my skin. Since this POTS stuff started, my skin would change from dimpled to creepy to normal and often within the same day. I take 50% of a packet when i wake in the morning. Then the other 50% throughout the day. Sometimes i take another 50% packet throughout the day.
