Electrolyte imbalances, which can be from too much sodium or not enough. Endurolytes provide the needed balance. Calorie replacement from simple sugar sources – electrolytes are used to breakdown sugar instead of replacing critical nutrients needed for muscle expansion and contraction creating a demand for not only more fluid but more electrolytes to remain in balance.

They are minerals and a component of plasma, which is the liquid part of the blood, plasma also containing water, nutrients, wastes and proteins it represents 55% of the blood. The most common electrolytes are Na+(Sodium), K+(Potassium), Cl-(Chloride), Ca2+(Calcium) and Mg2+(Magnesium) and they are so called because their presence allows the plasma solution to conduct electricity. They are essential for normal cell metabolism and must be present in the plasma at the right quantities. Any interruptions or the slowing of...
