All 6 electrolytes
What are Electrolytes? There are 6 minerals in your body that contain an electrical charge and hence are called electrolytes. These electrolytes can affect how your muscles function and how much water you have in your body. They also play a role in nutrient transport into cells, PH balance and supporting the function of nerves, muscles, heart, and brain. When you exercise intensely for an hour, your electrolyte levels are reduced as you sweat and it’s important to replace them to perform at your best. Electrolytes are key components in many bodily functions and athletic workouts where adequate hydration is a necessity.
The 6 electrolytes influence multiple aspects of bodily function and support:
Magnesium: Involved in hundreds of biochemical reactions in the body and helps support multiple areas including, muscle and nerve function and energy metabolism.
Calcium: Supports bone health but also plays a support role in heart and nerve function as well as muscle contractions. Potassium and Sodium: these 2 electrolytes work in combination to support water balance and PH balance.
Chloride: Supports muscle contractions and is one of the most important electrolytes in the blood. It helps keep the amount of fluid inside and outside of your cells in balance.
Phosphorous: Helps the body produce ATP in which the body converts into energy to support muscle contractions. It also supports the growth and repair of tissues and cells.
Taurine: supports cellular hydration by helping regulate fluid balance. Taurine also supports the movement of other electrolytes into and out of cells
L-Alanine: Supports glucose production for usable energy, endurance, and recovery.
