I want to clear up some confusion about electrolyte powder and explain why it’s so beneficial.
Electrolytes are electrically charged minerals. One of the main purposes of electrolytes is to power the nervous system, which powers the muscles and organs.
Electrolytes are responsible for important functions in the body, including:
• Nerve transmission
• Muscle contraction
• Fluid movement (hydration)
Electrolyte deficiency can impact the body in many different ways. Side effects of electrolyte deficiency can include:
• Brain fog
• Cramps (especially at night)
Top causes of electrolyte deficiency:
• Consumption of refined carbs or sugar
• Excess water consumption
Generally, two types of electrolytes are available: sport and regular. My Sports Hydration Electrolytes, for example, contain a different balance of potassium and sodium than my regular Electrolyte Powder.
This is because when you exercise and sweat, you need more sodium. It wouldn’t be a problem if you took my regular Electrolyte Powder while exercising, but you must take extra sea salt during the day.
Sodium and potassium are two vital electrolytes for the body, and it’s crucial to have them in the correct balance. The daily requirement for potassium is 4700 mg, which can be challenging to get from the diet alone.
You need to consume at least seven to ten cups of salad daily to get the potassium you need. This is why many people choose to enhance their diet with electrolyte powder.
If we look closer at different electrolyte powders, mine has more potassium and sodium by far. Other top brands only contain three electrolytes and insane amounts of sugar.
Compared to Dr. Berg Sports Hydration Electrolytes, which contain five electrolytes in much higher amounts, with trace minerals and zero sugar. It has organic stevia, natural flavoring, and no hidden maltodextrin.
