What Are Electrolytes?

Electrolytes are essential minerals that are present in the body. When these minerals are dissolved in liquid, they form electrolytes, which are positive or negative ions that are involved in metabolic processes throughout the body.

Electrolytes typically found in the human body include sodium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, phosphate, potassium, and bicarbonate. These minerals help to maintain efficient muscle and nerve function, support acid-balance, and most

importantly, they assist the hydration process.

What Else Do Electrolytes Provide?

Electrolytes keep the pH balance of your blood within normal range while regulating the fluid levels in blood plasma and throughout your body. They also help to enable muscle contractions, including regulating the beating of your heart. Additionally, they help the blood to clot and help to build new tissue.

What Happens if You Don’t Consume Enough Electrolytes?

Dehydration can occur. In the human body, we must have the correct balance of water both inside and outside of our cells. Electrolytes such as sodium help to maintain this balance through osmosis. Osmosis is a naturally occurring process in which water helps to prevent cells from bursting or shriveling up due to dehydration.

Muscles can cramp. Calcium is essential for muscle contraction; it helps muscles slide together and move over each other. Magnesium is also required for this process and allows muscles to relax following a contraction.

Lack of Electrolytes Can Cause Severe Side Effects

Fatigue, numbness or tingling sensations, confusion, and muscle weakness are all symptoms of electrolyte imbalance in the human body. This imbalance can also lead to palpitations, headaches, and convulsions.
