What is Electrolytes?
Electrolytes are chemicals, present in your body, that form electrically charged particles (ions) when dissolved in body fluids. These ions carry the electrical energy necessary for many functions that keep you alive, including the operation of your brain, nerves, and muscles, and the creation of new tissue.
The major electrolytes found within the body include calcium, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, phosphate and chloride. Each electrolyte plays a specific role in your body: Potassium regulates your heart and blood pressure, aids in transmitting nerve impulses and is necessary for muscle contraction. Magnesium helps maintain proper heart rhythms, contributes in nerve functioning and regulates blood glucose levels. Calcium is key component of bones and teeth, while helping with muscle contractions, nerve signaling, blood clotting. Chloride helps maintain a healthy pH, by balancing acidity and alkalinity.
"Electrolytes" is packed with potassium, magnesium, calcium, manganese, chromium & zinc to provide energy during intense workouts, while it contains many antioxidant Vitamins that help keep a healthy diet and reduce muscle stress, and a mix of carbs that provide the body with fuel in the right quantities and fight fatigue.
As stated before, electrolytes are vital for the normal functioning of human body. Many bodily functions depend on electrolytes, including muscle contractions and transmission of nerve impulses, so optimal performance requires a consistent and adequate supply of these important nutrients.
One can obtain electrolytes through eating different foods and drinking certain fluids, while could lose them partially through exercise, sweating, going to the bathroom and urinating. This is why a poor diet, too little or too much exercise, and being sick are some possible causes for an electrolyte imbalance. Vigorous exercise is associated with increased metabolic and nutritional demands that is why , it is extremely important for athletes to provide their body with a consistent and adequate supply of electrolytes.
Athletes expect their body to perform smoothly, on a high level, without interruption. Feeling cramps after any high-intensity workout is the way our body lets us know that electrolyte levels are really low and performance has been compromised for some time. So the goal of an electrolytes drink is not just to prevent cramps but to maintain specific bodily functions at optimal levels. Packed with Carbs, Electrolytes, vitamins and antioxidants this low-calorie mix can keep you hydrated, can prevent nutrient deficiencies and improve sports performance.
