We’ve all felt the debilitating effects of dehydration at some point in our lives. Whether after a strenuous session at the gym, a long day of physical labour, a severe bout of diarrhea, or even a brutal post-weekend hangover, water loss through sweat and excretion can take their toll, leaving us tired, dizzy and often, with a splitting headache.
Daily water loss makes maintaining proper fluid levels in our body so important. If you’re not getting enough water, your body, and your mind, won’t be performing at their best. If you need an effective hydration solution, Volt-Pro™ is the answer.
What are electrolytes?
Electrolytes are minerals found in our body that possess an electric charge, and are key to a wide range of bodily functions, including rehydration. Common electrolytes found in the human body include sodium, potassium, magnesium, chloride, and calcium.
You might have difficulty imagining how a mineral could conduct electricity, but if you ever made a liquid salt battery as a child, you’ve already seen it in action. The suspended molecules of salt allow the water to conduct electricity, carrying charge from one side to the other, and the same is true in the body.
In much the same way as a salt battery, charged electrolytes allow various chemical and osmotic reactions to occur between cells, facilitating, among other processes, the transfer of fluids. What this means in layman’s terms is that if your body is deficient in electrolytes, not even all the fresh water in the world can effectively rehydrate you.
The sports drink myth
Over the last decade or so, electrolyte replenishment beverages, commonly known as sports drinks, have increased immensely in popularity. Due to a mix of scientific research into nutrition, the growth of exercise as a popular pastime, and relentless sponsorship of sporting events, many of these drinks have become ubiquitously connected with notions of proper hydration after exercise or illness. That said, in many cases, these beverages may be causing more harm than they solve. Jammed full with sugar, artificial flavourings and preservatives, sports drinks may rehydrate you, but they certainly won’t make you healthy.
The problem with sports drinks is that neither those who produce them nor consume them differentiate between the needs of a professional athlete and your average Joe. While an Olympic sprinter might need to consume 19g of sugar per 250ml of liquid to replenish their energy, chances are, you don’t. These days, sweet, brightly coloured sports drinks are marketed to people of all ages and lifestyles, even children. A 2012 study found that teenagers gain up to 3.5 pounds of weight over two years for each bottle of sports drink they consume per day.
