Electrolyte supplements are designed to replace the minerals lost in sweat – sodium, chloride, potassium and magnesium. It’s a particularity hot summer so far and good quality electrolyte supplements are important to replace lost minerals for your #sweatybetty so #shopsmart.
Some commercial electrolyte products contain a lot of filler (e.g. glucose) to improve palatability. This can compromise the electrolyte composition of the product.
When shopping for electrolytes, it’s important to have a look at the label and select products that contain less than 10% filler.
