Hydrate. Feel Great.

Let’s geek out for a minute about electrolytes and hydration.

What Are Electrolytes?

Yeah, good question! Electrolytes are minerals that carry an electrical charge. They affect how your muscles function and regulate how much water you have in your body. Electrolytes also work in harmony with vitamins and other minerals in the body to keep you feeling good and performing your best.

As you sweat, your body loses its valuable electrolytes, causing an electrolyte imbalance. If you’re an athlete looking for peak performance, replacing them with water just doesn't cut it. Even if you're not an athlete, daily life can be dehydrating, so efficiently replacing electrolytes is still very important — especially if you’re following a low carb lifestyle.

Listen To Your Body When Working Out

Different body types have different hydration needs. During your activities, pay attention to how you feel and you’ll find out what works best for you.

When to drink: You need to hydrate before starting an activity, especially in the morning. Otherwise, you might start out dehydrated. You also absorb water better during the early stages of exercise.

Also, remember that during the 8 hours you've been sleeping, your body has been losing fluid through sweat and exhalation. Hydrating first thing in the morning and continuing to hydrate throughout the day is key to feeling your best whether you are exercising or not.

How much to drink: Drink 14-20 fl oz (400 to 600 ml) of water enhanced with electrolytes 2 hours prior to activity.
