Why is BODYARMOR Sports Drink and BODYARMOR LYTE’s primary electrolyte potassium instead of sodium?

Potassium is critical in the hydration process by helping to prevent cramping due to its role in nerve function and muscle control.  Traditional sports drinks use sodium as their key electrolyte. However, most Americans get PLENTY OF sodium via their food consumption and not enough potassium. Too much sodium can cause high blood pressure and potassium helps to lower blood pressure.
