The Benefits Of Electrolytes
Have you ever wondered if it’s necessary to consume those electrolytes drinks and powders? Maybe you’re wondering what electrolytes are and when you would use them? Today’s blog will explore all about electrolytes and their benefits and share more about Purecane’s NEW electrolyte drink mixes!
What Are Electrolytes?
Electrolytes are minerals including sodium, potassium, calcium, chloride, magnesium, and phosphate. In the body, they can be found in many places, including blood, tissues, and fluid. They have an electric charge and have many essential roles, such as water and pH balance, helping nutrients go into cells, and helping rid the cells of waste. All of these functions are just a few examples of the ways our body utilizes electrolytes. So what can cause electrolyte imbalance? While there are many different reasons, we will focus on dehydration and the importance of staying hydrated!
Benefits of Hydration
Did you know that as an adult, your body is anywhere from 55-60% water? All of this water works with electrolytes to maintain balance. Dehydration and loss of electrolytes can impair your body’s ability to regulate fluids, contract muscles and even clot blood. Some signs of dehydration and loss of electrolytes include fatigue, nausea, vomiting, irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, blood pressure changes, infrequent urination and confusion. So how can we maintain electrolyte balance? One easy way is drinking electrolyte water!
