Why do we need Electrolytes?

Why do we need electrolytes? 

 

We get this question all the time and we love to answer because keeping your body hydrated with electrolytes is so important! Here’s why:

 

Electrolytes are minerals that help improve your overall health. These minerals include sodium, potassium, calcium, phosphate, magnesium and bicarbonate.

 

3 Reasons you need electrolytes:

 

  1. Hydration: Your body needs electrolytes to fuel and hydrate your body. Without electrolytes, you may become dehydrated and feel weak. Drinking Berri Fit®  can help improve electrolyte balance.
  2. Regulate nerve and muscle function: Your body needs electrolytes to keep all functions of your body running. For example, your body uses calcium when you flex your muscles and magnesium when you relax your muscles. 
  3. Rebuild damaged tissue: Appropriate levels of electrolytes can help with muscle contraction, cramps and nerve pain. 

Electrolytes are essential to the wellbeing of your body. Our favorite way to consume enough electrolytes is by drinking Berri Fit and Berri Lyte. You can also get natural electrolytes through fruits and vegetables.
