Electrolytes

Electrolytes and the Body

Under normal circumstances a ‘good hydration status’ can be adequately achieved with water and a balanced diet.

BUT…During sport and exercise you can lose up to 1-2 Litres of sweat per hour!

Sweat contains many essential electrolytes and minerals the body requires for basic functions and fluid loss at these rates can quickly lead to dehydration.

To avoid the compromising effects of dehydration you need to replace depleted electrolyte salts and minerals – to do this effectively you will require an electrolyte solution.

The most effective way to consume electrolytes is with a low sugar high electrolyte formulation like Hydralyte Sports!
