Electrolytes: Why We Need Them & Why We Love Them!

Electrolytes: Why We Need Them & Why We Love Them!

Memorial Day Weekend has come and gone, which means it is officially summer! For most of us that means we will be spending more time outside, whether it is a day at the beach or being active with a run or hike. More time in the sun and a higher level of activity also means more sweat and dehydration. As much as we love to be outside this time of year, it is so important to take care of our bodies in the heat. We all know how to do that on the outside with SPF, but what about on the inside? We’re talking about hydration and electrolytes! Here’s what you need to know! 

Why Are Electrolytes Important?
Electrolytes are actually incredibly important! They are responsible for regulating the fluid levels in your blood plasma and your body. They regulate the PH level of your blood, and enable muscle contractions, including your heart! They also transmit nerve signals, build new tissue and help your blood to clot when you’re injured. In short, electrolytes help keep your body functioning properly, so they are certainty not something that we want to be running short on!

What Happens When Electrolytes Are Imbalanced?
Electrolyte imbalance is actually very common and occurs when we experience a loss of bodily fluids. This can be as simple as working up a sweat or more severe things like sickness. Because electrolytes play such a significant role in the body, an imbalance can change the way you feel pretty quickly. Some common symptoms are muscle aches or spasms, headaches, thirst, fever, insomnia, heart palpitations, joint pain, fatigue, and dizziness. Yeah, none of that sounds fun, and frankly, we’d like to keep our focus on the fun parts of summer, so staying hydrated is an absolute must!

How Do We Replenish Electrolytes?
The fastest way to replenish electrolytes is to ingest them. Most people reach for a traditional sports drinks, but remember that not all electrolyte drinks are created equal. While traditional sports drinks will replenish electrolyte levels they can also contain quite a lot of added sugar! There are plenty of ways to stay hydrated without a ton of added sugar and artificial flavors, which is why we decided to create a collagen lemon water that includes everything your body needs to stay hydrated and nothing that it doesn’t.  

Our new Collagen Lemon Water and it is the perfect addition to your summer survival list. Not only does it provide electrolytes for optimal hydration but it also includes 100% of your Vitamin C, 8 grams of protein, and 9 grams of collagen per scoop. Naturally sweetened with monk fruit extract, it is the perfect way to stay hydrated this summer without a ton of added sugar and artificial flavors. So whether you are recovering from a workout or lounging by the pool, add a scoop to water and you are good to go! We will be sippin’ this on repeat all summer long!
