All of your cellular communications Including Muscle Contractions revolve around sodium, potassium, and other electrolytes
Electrolytes Are Necessary For Proper Hydration
An electrolyte balance is important in order to optimize muscle function and physical performance.
The body is not able to efficiently replace all electrolytes as they are expended during exercise.
This is why it’s critical to make sure you’re properly hydrated before exercise so that electrolyte replenishment during endurance exercise can be performed with a gradual, consistent approach to support body functions and prevent heat-related issues.
Likewise, without proper electrolyte levels your body will not be able to sufficiently hydrate which can result in decreased performance or even health issues.
