Electrolytes are chemicals that conduct electricity when mixed with water. They regulate nerve and muscle function, hydrate the body, balance blood acidity and pressure, and help rebuild damaged tissue. The muscles and neurons are sometimes referred to as the “electric tissues” of the body. They rely on the movement of electrolytes through the fluid inside, outside, or between cells. When these substances become imbalanced, it can lead to either muscle weakness or excessive contraction. The heart, muscle, and nerve cells use electrolytes to carry electrical impulses to other cells.
The body changes its level of electrolytes throughout the day, and minor shifts in levels is not necessarily a cause for concern. For example, the level of your electrolytes can decrease during and after your exercise as the body has exerted energy. Levels can also become unbalanced when the water levels in your body change throughout the day.
However, the level of an electrolyte in the blood can become too high or too low, leading to an imbalance. This can be caused by more intense causes such as the rapid loss of fluids through diarrhea or vomiting. These electrolytes must be replaced to maintain healthy levels. The kidneys and several hormones regulate the concentration of each electrolyte. If levels of a substance are too high, the kidneys filter it from the body, and different hormones act to balance the levels.
Signs of an electrolyte imbalance are an overall feeling of weakness, muscle spasms, brain fog, fatigue, and changes in blood pressure. Regular monitoring and consuming electrolytes after intense exercise or sweating profusely can help to preserve levels. Be sure to stay hydrated at all times.
