We get a ton of questions about electrolytes.
What are they?
Why do we need them?
How do they work with our bodies to keep them running smoothly?
Our customers aren’t uneducated about health and wellness. In fact, they become more engaged in the age-old dialogue about how best to care for the human body—and we couldn’t be happier!
So because so many people ask about electrolytes, we’re sharing what we understand about electrolytes.
When you first hear the term “electrolytes,” what do you think of? Electricity. Yup.
And it’s true: we are an electric body/organism.
Electrolytes are nutrients or minerals that carry either positive or negative charges. S
Our body is a magnificent, endlessly complex machine, and electrolytes can be regarded as the electricity that helps it function. The electrolytes sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, phosphate and bicarbonate facilitate vital bodily processes. For instance:,
- Regulating the flow of water into and out of cells
- Activating nerve impulses
- Contracting and relaxing our muscles
- Balancing the pH levels of our body
- Clotting our blood when it’s needed
- Building new tissue
About as fundamental as breathing.
The right balance of electrolytes is crucial to health and vitality, and what you don’t need with your electrolytes is sweetener, or all the ‘special’ flavours so many boutique sellers resort to. All you need is the basic alkaline electrolytes, plus perhaps natural additions that assist the body to absorb the electrolytes more fully.
Losing your Electrolytes.
Electrolytes are always leaving the body through sweat and other bodily fluids. For that reason it is so important to get some replacements when it’s hot, after an intense workout, or after you’ve been sick.
How Do I know I need them?
Mild electrolyte loss can be the cause of weakness, fatigue, and muscle cramping.
Severe electrolyte loss can include twitching and convulsions, loss of control of your muscles and your nervous system acting up. Not happy.
There are of course certain things we do that bring on electrolyte loss, like an intense workout.
Do You Need Your Daily Dose of Hydration?
Electrolytes don’t just leave your body after exercise—they are exiting stage left continually.
You are constantly losing moisture and salts through sweat and breathing, and Most people do nothing about this daily loss except perhaps drink our amazing alkaline water… or tap water…
We’ve sighted studies that demonstrate 3 out of 4 Americans are chronically dehydrated.
And our big discovery recently that once the body adjusts to a continual dehydrated state, it may not even be capable of accepting more water makes the issue of continual hydration all the more important.
So many of us live every day feeling not-quite-right (achy, tired, anxious—) and we have no idea that it’s because we’re sorely lacking the water and electrolytes our bodies need!
Erica, our in-house naturopath formulated our Alkaline Booster over the last five years, continually refining her formula to achieve the highest uptake levels of the big four electrolytes – calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium. We are now at the point where people have realised the benefits and have made a teaspoon a day a part of their essential health regimen.
