When you’re sick with the flu, your doctor recommends fluids. All the water that your body loses must be topped up again, and so must the salts. That’s when you can pull out your bottle of Electrolyte Replacement drinks and recharge.
Fitness enthusiasts and athletes love electrolyte drinks. It keeps them from worrying about electrolyte imbalances from all the exercise and sweat loss.
But you don’t have to be sick or a marathon runner to enjoy the benefits of enriched water. Modern life is fast and busy. We may not get the time to make ourselves balanced whole food meals daily, and instead, we rely on a combination of cooked foods and high quality supplements. Why then should we ignore the importance of electrolyte supplementation?
Here’s what electrolytes do for you:
- replace lost fluids and salts
- keep hydration levels normal
- keep your muscles in shape
- keep your mind clear and energy up
You may see for yourself the effects of mineral-enriched water when you take a chug on your way into an afternoon meeting. You can simply carry your USANA Electrolyte Replacement Drink sachets with you and pour one into your glass of water when you need a boost.
Precaution against dehydration
Sometimes, you can miss the signs of dehydration, so it’s on you before you know it. The symptoms of dehydration can include:
- feeling thirsty
- dry mouth, dry eyes, and lips
- peeing fewer than four times a day
- If you’re feeling hungry – at times, this can be due to dehydration
The fastest way to hydrate is to take some oral hydration solutions. In other words, fluids with electrolytes. These are typically water enriched with electrically charged minerals, including sodium, potassium, and magnesium.
If you enjoy long bike rides, hikes and runs, or HIIT training, you can get dehydrated quickly without realizing it. You could be sweating buckets during hatha yoga or a session of belly dancing. That’s when the electrolyte replacement drink will help balance the lost electrolytes and prevent you from feeling ill later.
Another instance where electrolytes come in handy: when a night of too many G&Ts dehydrates your body. A hangover is the result of dehydration. Alcohol is a diuretic and can deplete water from your body quickly.
Most people get their electrolytes from food if they’re eating a regular healthy diet. But there are plenty of times you’d be grateful for extra reinforcement. Such as at the end of a busy day during which you forgot to drink water, and now have to make it to an afternoon meeting feeling like a dishrag.
Not all electrolyte replacement drinks are made the same
When you reach for that bottle of mineral water, you want to make sure it’s the right kind. These waters come in many forms, brightly coloured, and sometimes loaded with sugar. That’s not what you should be looking for.
USANA Electrolyte Replacement Drink contains all the essentials: Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium and Potassium. In addition, it’s lightly sweet and comes in a refreshing watermelon flavour. You can add 1 stick of the mix into 12 ounces of cold water, stir, drop-in ice if you like, and enjoy instant hydration.
You’ll feel the difference after you’ve had some since electrolytes are so essential to many bodily functions.
USANA Electrolytes for healthy function and hydration
Electrolytes have an important role in the body. Since they conduct electricity, they are responsible for relaying signals between organs and fluids in the body. Here are some ways electrolytes work in the body:
- Sodium, potassium and chloride control the movement of fluids in and out of cells.
- They help maintain the hydration of cells for normal function.
- Calcium helps your muscles contract.
- Calcium helps your blood coagulate to prevent excessive bleeding when a blood vessel is injured
Keeping your body’s electrolyte levels normal will keep the complex interconnected systems of your body working as they should. Electrolytes and fluids together have a major role in the drama of the body’s processes in keeping you alive and well.
Salts help your body hold on to water. Water and electrolytes are attracted to each other and move together in the blood. If you keep the level of salts right in the body, you’ll find yourself drinking the right amount of water your body needs. Support healthy levels of electrolytes in your body with USANA Electrolyte Replacement Drink and you’ll stay hydrated through the day.
Electrolytes support mental clarity and physical performance
For obvious reasons, if your body is hydrated and circulation is right, your brain will get the energy it needs to keep you sharp and focused. As you get through the day’s stresses your energy levels go down, you tend to reach for the fifth cup of coffee. Instead, reach for the USANA Electrolyte Replacement Drink. Electrolytes will help to pull up your lagging energy and sustain you for a little longer, or as long as you need, without messing with your sleep later.
They’ll also help you perform better when you work out. Electrolytes help carry signals from neurons to muscle tissue. When your muscle contracts, calcium rushes into muscle tissue and changes the shape of the proteins that cause contraction. When calcium leaves, these muscles relax. Even the simple act of rotating your wrists as you jump rope needs electrolytes.
While your enriched water won’t do the work of a calcium supplement pill, it will give you a short, sharp boost of calcium your body can use if it’s running low.
What can be better than a refreshing fruity and relatively healthy drink to keep away brain fog and get your energy back in the last leg of the workday?
The bottom line
USANA Electrolyte Replacement Drink is a low-sugar, fruit-flavored hydration solution designed for busy modern lives. The stick packs are easy to carry and mix up when you need them most.
It’s important to note that you don’t need too many electrolytes. Your required 8 glasses of water a day shouldn’t be replaced with 8 glasses of USANA electrolyte replacement drinks. Take it when you feel like you need a bit of extra energy boost, and your body will thank you for it.
