If you have been training hard for a while, whether you are a runner, a crossfitter, a triathlete, a “gym rat”, a fitness competitor, an athlete, or simply a fitness fanatic of any kind, you’ve likely heard the term “electrolytes” thrown around a lot in conversation.
So what are electrolytes- and do you need them? And if you need electrolytes, what drinks contain electrolytes and can help your training?
Electrolytes are ‘minerals in your body that have an electric charge….they help balance the amount of water in your body, balance your body’s pH level, move nutrients IN to your cells and wastes OUT of your cells, and make sure your nerves, muscles, heart and brain work the way they should.” — Medline Plus, U.S. National Library of Medicine.
Hopefully, after reading that definition, you recognize the importance of electrolytes in your body. Electrolytes can get out of balance when the amount of water in your body changes—I’m sure you can imagine that working out can easily disrupt water levels in our body. As we sweat, we are changing water levels. And if we aren’t hydrating every day, especially when we are regularly training and training hard, it’s easy to become dehydrated and have an electrolyte deficiency. No Bueno.
This is why it’s recommended for athletes and fitness addicts to focus heavily on hydration and on electrolyte balance. How do you do that? Well the hydration situation is simple. Drink water daily. Not a few sips – drink water throughout the day. You don’t have to drown in it just drink a good amount.
Next get yourself a workout supplement that will replenish your electrolytes. There are many drinks on the market that have electrolytes but you need to consider several things. First of all, consider your training needs, and second of all, read the ingredients labels. You want a quality electrolyte drink that won’t have so many extra unnecessary chemicals that you defeat the purpose of supplementing in the first place. A lot of brands out there have electrolyte drinks that are hardly more than glorified Cool-Aid.
