Health Notes

Understanding Electrolytes

Understanding Electrolytes
Stay Replenished to Stay Charged for Your Workout
Understanding Electrolytes: Main Image
Muscle cramps are one hint that electrolytes may be running low when you're sweating a lot
Electrolyte-enriched products-including water, tea, juices, gels, tablets, and bars-are clearly meant for people when they exercise. But who needs them? Why? And when? Use this short guide to electrolytes to make smart choices when deciding whether you need to replenish your electrolytes. (And as always, be sure to discuss supplement use with your healthcare provider.)

Electrolytes 101

Electrolytes are minerals in the body and compounds that bind to them to create salts, such as sodium, potassium, magnesium, chloride, calcium, bicarbonate, phosphate, and sulfate. Electrolyte molecules are positively or negatively charged, which allows them to carry electrical impulses that transmit nerve signals and contract muscles. They also maintain fluid and acid-base balance, making them indispensable for a healthy human.

Keeping the electricity on

A normal diet provides more than enough electrolytes to meet the body's needs for most people. But there are times when electrolytes from food alone may not be enough.

  • Athletic endeavors: For light exercise in moderate climates, replenishing water without electrolytes is sufficient for most people. But when temperatures rise or workouts are prolonged, more electrolytes may be lost through sweat than can be replenished with food alone.
    • Tip: Most electrolyte replacement products provide mostly sodium and potassium since these are lost in the largest quantities when we sweat. (We only lose negligible amounts of magnesium, except under conditions of extreme exercise.)
  • Hot climates: In very hot climates, sweating is the body's way of ridding itself of heat, but unfortunately this rids us of electrolytes too. People who spend a lot of time outdoors, such as construction or landscaping workers and athletes training in hot climates are most likely to need electrolyte replacement.
    • Tip: Muscle cramps are one hint that electrolytes may be running low when you're sweating a lot.
  • Stomach and intestinal upset: When we lose fluid through vomiting or diarrhea, we also lose plenty of electrolytes. This can lead to dehydration and in severe cases, life-threatening electrolyte imbalances.
    • Tip: Young children are particularly susceptible to excessive fluid and electrolyte loss when sick, but adults can experience this too.

Which products

It always pays to pay attention to what you put in your body. Be clear about what you're looking for and then check the labels to make sure your product choices support your goals. Some considerations might include:

  • Sports drinks: For healthy adults, sports drinks are most popular for electrolyte replacement, but if you're working out with weight loss in mind, watch the sugar content. Many people don't need the extra calories.
  • Electrolyte-enhanced gels and bars: These may be a good choice for those who need to supplement calorie intake, such as endurance athletes who are training multiple hours per day.
  • Electrolyte tablets (and plenty of water): If your workouts quash your appetite, these can help get you through, but take in some calories as soon as you can.
  • Child-specific products: When little ones are sick, reach for products made especially for kids. (They often have the word "pedia" in the name.) Sports drinks may contain sugar or artificial flavors and colorings that can upset an already sensitive tummy.

    Comments about GNC Total Lean™ Waterex™:

    I drink massive amounts of water, especially before I go to sleep. I noticed that I was feeling/looking heavier and I think it was the water (of course, it IS the holidays). I decided to try a water pill and tried this one. I don't know if it's intended to be an appetite suppressant, but it doesn't has been that for me. I only eat because I know I need to, not because I'm hungry. I haven't noticed going to the bathroom more, but when I do go to urinate, it's a lot more than normal (that's as decent as I can make it sound. ha). Also, my BM's are more...more...which is great for getting rid of waste. I only gave this 4 stars because I am getting headaches since I've started taking these. I think it's because I have someone started taking in less water since I've taken the pills, which is my own fault. Either way, if you're on the fence, definitely go with this one!

          I think this product works well. I noticed that I was peeing more after taking the pills, and it worked the first day I took it. Ive taken it for 4 days now and have dropped 3 pounds. I must have been retaining a lot of excess water. I cant say I noticed a difference in my energy level or appetite, but for removing excess water from your system, it does work.

                I bought this because I was having trouble with the scale moving. I'm trying to lose weight and I seemed to be stuck at the same weight for two weeks even though I watch my food intake and exercise at least twice a day. A friend told me she uses water pills not sure which kind. I saw this and immediately like that you only take two capsules once a day. So far so good I stepped on the scale today and its finally moving. Take into account I also drink 65-70 oz of water everyday. Drink your water it works as a matter of fact I just put my coke zero back in the fridge to drink more water instead. Drink up stay hydrated

                  I use this product daily, as directed. It does work well for me, as I tend to retain alot of water weight. I used to be on a Rx water pill, but I would get terrible charlie horses in my calves, due to the Rx stripping me of potassium. These have potassium in them which is a nice little perk. They do work well but are gentle; you won't have the 'flood gates open' and dry mouth like you do with some other diuretics.

                  Taking this daily at the same time is the key to this WaterRex. It takes 2 to 3 days for your body to adjust before the product really works. I have used stronger pills but they have side effects these pills do not have any side effects at all. I am not sure if I would use this one again.
