  • Top 4 Ways to Understand Electrolytes

    Nutritionists generally use the term electrolyte to describe nutrients like sodium, potassium, and chloride. The most familiar electrolyte is the one found on every dinner table, plain old table salt. Electrolytes are the essential salts our body needs for optimum function of our cells and organs. Here are the top 4 ways to understand electrolytes:

    1. Electrolytes are important and it’s important that once your body becomes depleted of these nutrients that you instantly replenish them. Electrolytes create the electrical charges our bodies need to regulate muscular contractions, normal heart beats, and overall nerve function.

    2. People usually tend to go for electrolyte- fortified drinks when they’re depleted but another way to go about replenishing is to load up on healthy food options.

    3. Many people also tend to think that hydration is key, however, too much water can dilute and flush out electrolytes in the body so always make sure that you’re drinking water in moderation and always replenishing.

    4. Intense workouts call for snacks that are rich in the top four essential electrolytes which include sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium chloride.
