As you take your workout to the next level, run that extra mile (or 5), try a new spinning class, or dance like there is no tomorrow, your body loses essential electrolytes, which can cause cramping, fatigue, and can leave you unfocused—making it harder to finish your workout. You need a way to replenish those electrolytes and stay on top of your training.
Electrolytes are minerals such as calcium, magnesium, chloride, sodium and potassium that are found in the blood and carried to all parts of the body. They are electrically charged and play a very crucial role in proper nerve and muscle function. If you ever feel a cramp coming on while training, it could be because you are low in electrolytes and your muscles aren’t functioning like they should. The best way to maintain an adequate supply of electrolytes is by getting enough foods like fruits and vegetables that are high in electrolytes. But when you need to replenish more quickly, electrolyte drinks are a convenient way to help you recover.
When you hear the word "electrolyte drink," you may think of one of those sugary sports drinks in a variety of flavors and colors. While it’s true those are formulated to hydrate and replenish your electrolytes, they are also loaded with sugar and other added ingredients that won’t help you achieve your goals. An electrolyte supplement, such as electrolyte powder that can simply be added to water, is a great way to replenish your electrolytes without all the added carbs and calories.
For women who work out because they are wanting to lose weight, depleting the electrolyte reserve may be a result. Taking an electrolyte supplement is the perfect way to replace your electrolytes without feeling like you have to head right back out to the gym to burn off added calories from sugary drinks. There may be some electrolyte powders that do contain added refined sugars though, so make sure you look at the label to make sure you're getting important electrolytes and not filling up on added sugars. Even if you aren’t specifically trying to lose weight, if you are an active woman, you are almost certainly not looking to add extra empty calories.
One other likely benefit for women who are taking electrolyte supplements is that you are helping your body prevent dehydration in multiple ways. When you have an electrolyte imbalance, particularly a sodium deficiency, the amount of water in your body decreases and you can become dehydrated. Making sure you keep your electrolyte levels at a good place is a great way to help prevent dehydration. Taking an electrolyte powder with water is also a good way to prevent dehydration because you are simply drinking more water. Electrolyte powders can also help with dehydration with added ingredients, like coconut water, that are known to improve hydration. Taking an electrolyte supplement will help you balance your electrolyte levels, which will allow your muscles to recover better and help you have the energy you need to take on the rest of your day!
