Electrolyte Hydration Complex is a complete and balanced electrolyte formula to help promote optimal hydration, especially after excessive sweating. It contains potassium, sodium, chloride, and magnesium, the main electrolytes found in the body. D-ribose is included because of its importance in healthy cardiac function, exercise recovery, and energy production, whereas taurine helps to regulate cellular electrolyte flow.
Electrolyte Hydration Complex also contains vitamin C and the synergistic compounds quercetin and citrus bioflavonoids. Vitamin C supports the cardiovascular system by helping build healthy collagen, one of the main structural components of blood vessels.*
Electrolyte Hydration Complex can be mixed into any beverage, sports bottle, or water and placed in an ice rack to make popsicles. This product has a delicious natural lemon-orange flavour, and its sweetness comes from a small amount of the natural herb stevia.
Electrolytes play a critical role in the body. They carry electrical charges required for cells to communicate with each other and for the biochemical generation of energy.
They are also crucial for helping to regulate fluid balance – keeping the proper amount of water inside cells and in their surrounding environments. Favourable electrolyte balance is essential for energy levels and the health of cells.
Potassium is critical in regulating the heart’s electrical system, which is responsible for maintaining a healthy heartbeat. Potassium partners with sodium to maintain an average electrolyte balance.
For proper heart health, it is essential to preserve this delicate balance so that potassium levels do not drop too low or rise too high.
Electrolyte Hydration Complex contains vitamin C, quercetin and bioflavonoids (found naturally in citrus fruits) as additional heart-healthy nutrients. These ingredients are potent antioxidants, and vitamin C is required to synthesise collagen, the primary protein blood vessels make from.
Busy lifestyles, poor diets, toxic environments, and lack of exercise can contribute to stress. In turn, stress significantly impacts a delicate set of glands known as the adrenal glands, which are responsible for maintaining healthy electrolyte balance, particularly by regulating sodium and potassium levels.
Stress can make the adrenal glands unable to keep up with these demands, resulting in mineral imbalances which can compromise cellular energy generation.
What Influences Fluid Loss?
Occasional Illness: Electrolytes quickly deplete when the body loses excessive fluids through occasional vomiting or diarrhoea. Children and the elderly are especially prone to losing significant electrolytes during illnesses; therefore, repletion is necessary to maintain balance.
Athletics: Athletes and individuals who sweat significantly during exercise lose essential minerals. In some cases, food sources alone may not provide enough electrolytes to counter the loss, mainly if they are primarily whole, unprocessed foods, which are naturally low in sodium.
Supplementing with Electrolyte Hydration Complex may help these individuals maintain healthy hydration and facilitate energy generation for their next workout and recovery.
Recommended Use: Mix 8 grams (approximately one scoop) into 10 to 12 ounces of water daily or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
