The Best Sources of Electrolytes, From Vegetables to Vitalyte
Do you ever feel sluggish in the hours after a rigorous workout, or after a night out on the town? If so, there may be more than exhaustion, dehydration, or a hangover to blame. You may also suffer from an electrolyte imbalance—something you can’t cure by resting or gulping gimmicky sports drinks. This may sound like your mother speaking, but to cure an electrolyte imbalance, you need to take in the right nutrients. Vitalyte’s Electrolyte Replacement Formula has everything you need.
Great Sources of Electrolytes
Electrolytes are electrically charged minerals that are found in blood and other body fluids. When you sweat or excrete fluid in other ways, your electrolyte levels decrease. To replenish them, it’s best to ingest foods and liquids that contain a high level of magnesium, sodium, potassium, calcium and other electrolytes, such as:
Spinach – Leafy green vegetables such as spinach, lettuce and kale are great sources of magnesium. They’re also low calorie, so you can eat them in large quantities without fretting about your waistline. If you’re low on magnesium, the vegetable section of your local grocer should be your next destination.
Peanut Butter – Part of peanut butter’s great taste comes from sodium. The salt it contains enhances the mellow flavor of the butter. But the sodium benefits more than your taste buds. By increasing fluid retention, it helps you recover from strenuous workouts, or lazy sauna sessions where you sweat a river.
Trail Mix – Trail mix that contains dried bananas and raisins is packed with the electrolyte potassium. Because trail mix tends to be naturally sugary, try to stick with the recommended serving size; and avoid mixes that contain fattening ingredients like candied pineapple, M&Ms and yogurt-covered anything.
Milk – The American diet is heavy on dairy products, so most of us needn’t worry about getting enough calcium. If dairy products agree with your digestive system, then have fun chowing down on a round of baked Brie or an aged slice of Roquefort. The French diet is heavy on dairy products, too.
Vitalyte – Vitalyte electrolyte replacement drink is the ultimate solution for curing an electrolyte imbalance fast. Ideal for people who have food sensitivities, or who need a convenient solution for electrolyte replacement, Vitalyte contains delicious natural ingredients, and has less sugar than competing brands.
Maintaining a Healthy Balance
Health experts recommend maintaining an electrolyte-rich diet to keep your electrolyte levels high. But if you routinely perform strenuous exercise or engage in other strenuous activities, you may need an extra infusion of electrolytes to stay healthy. Vitalyte electrolyte replacement drink is a great solution.
Vitalyte is also a great option for lactose intolerant individuals, who can’t get their supply of calcium from dairy products, and people with food allergies that prevent them from eating electrolyte rich fruits or vegetables. Regardless of why you need an electrolyte boost, delicious Vitalyte drink mix is a healthy way to get it. Try our delicious Electrolyte Replacement Formula today.
