The Role of Electrolytes

What About Electrolytes?

As an athlete, you’ve probably heard about electrolytes… but what are they, and why are they important? And how do you make sure you’re getting enough?


    Electrolytes are minerals in your body that have an electric charge. They’re important for hydration and are especially important for athletes!

  2. THE WHY

    Sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium are all lost by your body when you sweat. Electrolyte-rich drinks restore these minerals to your system so you can perform at your best.

  3. THE HOW

    Sports drinks and bananas are great for replenishing electrolytes, and can help you avoid muscle cramps during activity.


If you’re feeling…

Headache, dizziness, extreme fatigue, cramping or intense thirst during physical activity, you need to replenish your electrolytes ASAP!
