Electrolytes include minerals sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), calcium (Ca2+), bicarbonate (HCO3-), magnesium (Mg2+), chloride (C1-) and hydrogen phosphate (HPO42-). Electrolytes are vital for normal functioning of the body and controls nerve and muscle function as well as regulates the body's hydration and circulatory system and also repairs damaged tissue. Severe dehydration from exercise or from a heat wave can cause an electrolyte imbalance. The elderly are also susceptible to abnormal electrolyte levels from less efficient kidney function. Common side effects of imbalanced electrolytes include irregular heartbeat, fatigue, nausea, muscle cramping and weakness and even vomiting and seizures. If you are prone to an imbalance from sweating a lot, having the flu, taking certain medications or have poor kidney function, it's important to consume quick electrolytes to hydrate and get back on track.
