Electrolytes and their health benefits

What is the role of electrolytes

As you probably already know, more than half of your body is made up of water. To function well, your body ensures that fluid levels remain stable and do not change drastically.

Electrolytes are compounds that form particles carrying positive or negative ions in liquids. These ions carry the electrical energy that is essential for many functions in your body.

Since your body cannot make electrolytes, it is important to supply it through your diet.

The main electrolytes

The main electrolytes are sodium, potassium and chlorine. Calcium, magnesium and phosphate are also electrolytes. Potassium and chlorine help maintain the pH of the blood preventing an environment that is too acidic or too alkaline.

Sodium helps raise blood pressure and potassium helps lower it. Calcium helps strengthen bones, teeth, muscles and metabolism.

A lack of calcium in children can be harmful for their growth and for adults, it can cause osteoporosis.

Phosphorus also helps keep bones and teeth strong and is essential for the production of proteins needed to build and repair cells.

Their benefits for your body

Electrolytes are essential to maintain a good level of hydration. Did you know that it's the link between sodium and potassium that determines how much water your body keeps or empties? They play a key role in your daily life. With warmer temperatures and/or intense exercise there may be an imbalance in your body, which is why it is important to stay hydrated and add electrolytes to your drinks.
