What are Electrolytes and why do We Need Them?
Did you know:
- Electrolyte balance in our bodies is essential for function of our organs and cells
- Those electrolytes become ions when dissolved in water and thus gain the ability to conduct electricity
- For the brain, nervous system, and muscles to communicate, small electrical signals are needed
- Signs of an imbalance of electrolytes can look like: weakness, twitching, muscle contraction, and if it goes unchecked, seizures and heart rhythm instabilities
- The elderly are more at risk of an electrolyte imbalance than are younger adults
- Sodium and Potassium are lost in sweat during exercise, an attack of diarrhea or vomiting
The most common types of electrolytes include: sodium, potassium, calcium, and bicarbonate.
Sodium regulates the overall amount of water in the body and is the major positive ion in the fluid on the exterior of cells. While potassium is the major positive ion within the cells, and its primary functions within the body are to regulate the heart and proper functioning and rebuilding of muscles.
Chloride is the major negative ion found in the fluid on the exterior of the cells and in our blood and helps to maintain a normal balance of fluids, whereas bicarbonate acts as a buffer to maintain normal levels of acidity in our blood and various other fluids in our bodies.
Many people think of sports drinks when wanting to increase electrolytes, but these drinks may have lots of sugar, and if consumed too often, can lead to an excess of electrolytes in the body. The idea behind consuming electrolytes is to restore lost sodium and potassium while retaining water.
