All About Electrolytes.
As an athlete or active person, you’re wondering why so much hype about electrolytes? You’re thinking, keep it pure and natural with just water. Well, just water doesn’t cut it. You’re active. You need electrolytes to replenish your body with minerals lost through sweat.
Electrolytes are minerals that carry an electrical charge. They have an impact on how your muscles function and how much water you have in your body. In addition to their individual roles, electrolytes often work in harmony with vitamins and other minerals in the body to keep you feeling good and performing at your best.
It would be pretty much impossible to achieve peak performance without proper hydration and helping to replace electrolytes while you're working out. So tune in to your personal hydration needs to stay healthy.
Listen To Your Body When You're Working Out.
Different body types have different hydration needs. So always listen to your body. Find what works best for you.
How much to drink: Drink 14-20 fl oz (400 to 600 ml) of water enhanced with electrolytes 2 hours prior to activity. You need to hydrate before you actually start activities. Otherwise, you might start out dehydrated, especially if it’s morning.
When to drink: Drink lots of fluid during early stages of exercise and competition. You absorb water better during this time.
Electrolytes are your friends: After about an hour of relatively intense activity, you will NEED electrolytes. You need to replace minerals lost through sweat. If you sweat a lot, keep this in mind.
Have fun, but stay hydrated: Keep in mind that while you’re having fun, you still need to hydrate. If you’re not putting fluids in your body, you’ll dehydrate. And remember, alcohol dehydrates. So keep hydrated.
