Using electrolyte supplements before, during and after exercise will help keep your muscles from cramping due to dehydration, improve muscular endurance and improve overall performance whether you’re participating in a competitive event or a regular workout. Many of the ready-to-drink sports drinks combine carbohydrates and electrolyte supplements, as well as caffeine and herbal compounds for extra energy. These drinks are specially formulated to contain appropriate amounts of carbohydrates and electrolytes supplements to help regulate blood sugar, as well as water to help replace the fluid and sodium lost through sweat during athletic activities. Research has shown that the flavouring in sports drinks also encourages athletes to drink more fluid during exercise, which helps to maintain proper levels of hydration. Maintaining a proper balance of sodium, potassium, magnesium, chloride and phosphate will not only help you in your overall health, but can even help stave off the occasional unwanted hangover.
