Runner's Guide To Electrolytes: Electrolyte and Carbohydrate Replacement

April 07, 2015

We are offering the following publication FREE for followers. Simply click on the link, "Runners Guide to Electrolytes: Electrolytes and Carbohydrate Replacement", by sports nutritionist, Nina Anderson (SPN) of Safe Goods Publishing.

There are several common electrolytes found in the body, each serving a specific and important role, but most are in some part responsible for maintaining the balance of fluids between the intracellular (inside the cell) and extracellular (outside the cell) environments. This balance is critically important for things like hydration, nerve impulses, muscle function, and pH level.

When mineral levels are insufficient to meet the demands of the body under emotional, physiological, and psychological stresses (such as during physical activity), the result will most likely be a substandard level of performance. For athletes or weekend exercisers, this increases the risk of serious injury and reduces the recovery rate after strenuous work or exercise.

Benefits of Electrolyte and Mineral Replacement

Multi-electrolyte replacement is critical for sports enthusiasts. High volume oxygen intake during athletic exertion oxidizes blood cells faster than normal and increases the change of anemia. Electrolytes are the ultimate oxygenator of all living cells through a process known as bio-oxygenation. The building of muscle and the production of energy draws on chromium, acting as a cofactor to insulin. It also promotes the entrance of glucose and amino acids into the cells to make muscle. A loss of potassium can cause dizzy spells or lightheadedness, especially during exertion in hot weather. The proper complement of minerals help to provide the following benefits:

  • Promotes faster recovery from injury stress or strenuous exercise.

  • Quickly heightens concentration and alertness.

  • Supports neurotransmitter function in the brain.

  • Increases oxygen uptake at the cellular level.

  • Dramatically boosts energy levels.

  • Strengthens the immune system.

  • Rapidly helps kill infectious bacteria, viruses, yeast, fungi, and parasites without harming beneficial microorganism.

  • Improves digestion (especially if taken with plant enzymes).

  • Raises osmotic pressure level of cells to keep them strong.

  • Increases body enzyme production.

  • Helps keep the body’s homeostasis balance.

  • Aids in efficient removal of toxic body acids.

  • Enhances uptake of vitamins, macro minerals, proteins and other essential nutrients from natural food sources or dietary supplements.

      Dehydration Results In Lower Blood Pressure And Slows Bodily Processes. Active individuals should be aware of the acute effects of dehydration on performance. With just a 2% loss of water in the body, heat regulation becomes impacted. With a 3% drop in body weight from water loss, muscle cell contraction is impacted. And at 4% loss, there is 5-10% reduction in overall performance that can last up to 4 hours.

      Our bodies regulate heat through perspiration or sweat. But when the body sweats, it also removes dissolved minerals in those fluids as well, leading to a serious condition we know as dehydration. This dehydration will impact performance.
