Your body runs on electricity, whether it’s the neurons firing in your brain or the pumping of your heart. Electrolytes are chemicals that conduct electricity when dissolved in water. When they interact with other electrolytes and with cells, they keep the body’s small electric currents flowing. Not only does this help your body’s natural processes run smoothly, but it’s also essential for your survival.
We use one word to describe them, but electrolytes are really a family of chemicals. There are different types, each providing a different charge, either positive or negative, to trigger a reaction in the body. In fact, you probably know a few of the most common ones already by their more familiar names; Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Calcium.
Dehydration is defined as a 1% or greater loss of body mass as a result of fluid loss. The human body weight is made up of around 60% to 70% fluid.
Dehydration occurs when the body is losing more fluids than being consumed, which causes the body to not perform maximally.
- Decline in productivity
- Heat injury or illness
- Urinary & Kidney problems
- Hypovolemic shock
- Seizure and loss of consciousness
- Decreased cognitive motor skills
A 2015 study out of Loughborough University found that participants committed a significantly higher number of driving errors when they were dehydrated. Shockingly, their performance was just as poor as that of people who complete similar tests while at the legal blood alcohol content limit.
