Why Is It Important To Replenish Electrolytes

What Is Replenishment of Electrolytes?

We all know when we exercise or sweat a lot, we need to drink lots & lots of water to rehydrate ourselves. And that’s great! But we tend to forget about replenishing lost electrolytes. Electrolytes are salts and minerals, like sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, and chloride, in our body that maintain fluid balance and blood pressure. If you’ve got too much or too little of any one electrolyte, you could experience dehydration, over-hydration. Hence, replenishing with the right drink and maintaining the balance is necessary.

The essential electrolytes for the body are: 

  • Sodium
  • Potassium
  • Calcium
  • Bicarbonate
  • Magnesium
  • Chloride
  • Phosphate
