What are Electrolyte Tablets?
Electrolyte Tablets by GoNutrition ® are a blend of essential electrolyte salts in an easy to swallow tablet. Electrolytes have a huge array of roles in the human body, they are involved in generating nerve transmissions, muscle fibre contractions, energy production, fluid regulation and the normal functioning of the immune system. When undertaking intense exercise, the body loses electrolytes through sweat, over time the body’s stores can become depleted which causes a reduction in performance and focus. Taking a source of electrolytes such as these tablets can help to keep stores topped up.
How can electrolytes help to maintain optimal performance?
Taking a source of electrolytes pre, intra or post workout can help to maintain salt levels within the body as well as enhancing the absorption of water. Dehydration is a problem during exercise, especially when exercising in the heat. Fluctuations in body weight due to loss of water through sweat can seriously impact performance. It is therefore imperative to maintain an electrolyte balance in the body. Each Electrolyte Tablet provides 206mg sodium, 318mg chloride, 61mg potassium, 28mg calcium and 6mg magnesium.
What goes well with Electrolyte Tablets?
For optimal performance during intense exercise in the heat, it is best to take electrolytes with a source of carbohydrate such as Maltodextrin or Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin. Alternatively if you prefer to blend electrolytes into your intra workout shake, we also stock Electrolyte Powder.
