Electrolytes are aqueous solutions of ions with a positive and negative electrical charge. The most important ions include: sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium. They have many vital functions in the body, are found in all body fluids and are responsible for maintaining acid-base and water balance. What is more, they have an impact on thermoregulation processes, help maintain the proper osmotic pressure and are involved in initiating a muscle fibre contraction.
Electrolyte deficiency is often accompanied by dehydration caused by hypethermia, diarrhoea or vomiting. Increased sweating is also associated with significant electrolyte depletion. Because of that, individuals are doing strenuous physical work (athletes and labourers) should supplement it regularly. Experts think that endurance athletes who train longer than 2 hours daily or exercise in high temperatures should take formulations enriched with electrolytes.
Our store offers a wide variety of supplements which effectively replenish electrolytes and prevent deficiencies that are dangerous to health. Most of them were designed specifically for athletes. Because of that, apart from electrolytes, they contain also other compounds which maintain optimal training performance and high energy levels.
