What are electrolytes, and why the human needs them?

In our bodies electrolytes are basically calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium chloride, hydrogen phosphate and hydrogen carbonate. They are very important for survival. We cannot function if we do not have them, but also if we dilute them too much, it can lead to death by “water poisoning”.

Electrolytes regulate our function of nerve and muscle, our hydration, the pH of our blood, rebuilding damaged tissue, and determining blood pressure.

We can get these electrolytes easily by eating a balanced diet. But when we push our bodies and sweat during an intense exercise, we are losing electrolytes.
