We get these often.
Electrolytes conduct electricity when dissolved in water. They are essential minerals for the human body to process vital functions in your nervous system, muscles, and tissues, such as staying hydrated, regulating muscle contractions, balancing pH levels (acidity or alkalinity), and they control nervous system functions.
Electrolytes–like sodium, calcium, and potassium–are probably most familiar to you. What you might not know, is electrolytes conduct electricity (positive or negative charges) when dissolved in body fluids. They then move signals or electrical charges in your body for crucial body functions.
Electrolytes need to be replaced after they are lost through exercise or other means. That’s where flyby’s Fuel line of products can help prevent an electrolyte imbalance.
Electrolytes perform vital functions in the human body to regulate your muscles, tissues, and nervous system. Electrolytes–like sodium, calcium, and potassium–are probably most familiar to you. Many of us experience muscle contractions that can happen when our muscles cramp due to low electrolyte levels.
Electrolytes need to be replaced after being lost through exercise or other means.
We lose electrolytes:
· in our sweat when we exercise,
· in our pee (especially if we’ve had a diuretic like alcohol),
· and in other ways like diarrhea or vomiting
Water makes up more than half your body weight and you can lose up to 40% of your body’s water during exercise. Electrolytes are the key to replenishing your body and providing it the essential minerals it needs to function like a well-oiled machine.
Taking flyby Fuel electrolytes with water or juice when you are exercising for over an hour can help you stay hydrated. Drinking water alone is important, too, but without replenishing electrolytes when your body needs it, you can lose the ability to cool your body, experience muscles cramps, and get headaches or feel lightheaded and confused, among other things. That’s where flyby’s Fuel line of products can help you replenish the electrolytes you need.
Although drinking water is important to stay hydrated throughout your day, you need to replenish your fluids + electrolytes when you become dehydrated. Don’t wait until you are thirsty to start rehydration.
What if I don’t know if I am hydrated enough? Good question! Everybody needs different amounts of water, but strive for 8 glasses of water daily (64oz) total. If you’re exercising, you’ll want to consume more.
Water alone is not enough when dehydrated. Electrolytes perform vital functions in the human body to regulate your muscles, tissues, and nervous system. The flyby Fuel electrolyte powder and the entire Fuel product line offer an easy way to consume the electrolytes you need.
It is best to set a routine to drink water throughout your day to stay hydrated. Some people drink about 8oz of water every hour, some fill up a large container and drink from that to track their fluid consumption, and others just sip water all day long. Don’t wait until you are thirsty. Finding what works best for you and your daily routine allows you to establish a habit and stick to it.
Staying hydrated means more than just drinking water. Your body needs electrolytes, too. Electrolytes help regulate your tissues, muscles, and nervous system to perform vital functions in your body.
Electrolytes need to be replaced after they are lost through exercise or other means. You can easily add flyby Fuel electrolyte products into your exercise or daily routines to ensure your body gets the electrolytes it needs.
Dehydration headaches can appear when you have been exercising or on a hot day when you may have sweated a lot without replenishing the water and the electrolytes your body needs to function smoothly. In fact, all the organs in our body require proper hydration. These headaches can be severe or only nagging. They are your body’s way of saying: Hey, I need something. When this happens, it’s time to listen.
The best way we’ve found to reduce dehydration headaches is to start by drinking 8-16oz of water. You can add electrolytes to the water with the flyby Fuel electrolyte powder or liquid drops. This helps replenish what your body lost and can prevent an electrolyte imbalance.
The dog days of summer can exhaust you and create dehydration headaches just as easily as exercising can do, so make sure you keep consuming water throughout really hot days–whether you are exercising or not.
Drink 8-16oz of water with the addition of electrolytes to quickly rehydrate yourself. Our flyby Fuel electrolyte powder and the entire Fuel line of products offer an easy way to add the electrolytes your body needs.
Our blood stream delivers nutrients and carries immune cells where they are needed. Water is important to both our blood and our lymph system (containing white blood cells that fight off illness). Hydration and water will also help during an illness to lower body temperatures during a fever. You can strengthen your immune system with electrolytes and drinking water to properly hydrate your body and to help boost immune system functionality.
