What are Electrolytes and why are they important?

Electrolytes are electrically- charged substances found in your urine, blood, and other bodily fluids. They are needed to keep a health balance within the body.

The best kind of electrolytes are the ones we make ourselves! This way they do not contain sugar, flavorings, and colors that are not good for us.

Electrolytes come in different forms such as potassium, phosphate, magnesium, calcium, and sodium. Keeping electrolytes balanced in the body allow it to maintain proper water amounts in the body, balance blood acidity, allow for proper muscle action, and other important processes. When you sweat, you are releasing your electrolytes so it is important to replenish them.

You can find electrolytes naturally in food such as kale, broccoli, and spinach. You can also find them in fruits such as watermelon, strawberries and oranges. Lean proteins such as chicken and fish also contain them. 🍊🐔🍓🍉
