What are electrolytes?

Electrolytes regulate our nerve and muscle function, our body's hydration, blood pH, blood pressure, and the rebuilding of damaged tissue. When we exercise we sweat and lose electrolytes, mainly sodium and potassium.

To maintain constant electrolyte concentrations in our body fluids, these electrolytes must be replaced. Fresh fruits and vegetables are good sources of sodium and potassium and replace lost electrolytes. Excess electrolyte levels in our blood are filtered out by our kidneys.

If we do not consume the necessary levels of electrolytes there can be health consequences. The most common imbalances are hypernatremia and hyponatremia (too much or too little sodium), and hyperkalemia and hypokalemia, (excessive and insufficient levels of potassium).

Symptoms of electrolyte imbalance

An electrolyte imbalance can be manifested in several ways. The symptoms will depend on which electrolyte is out of balance, and whether that level is too high or too low.

An altered level of magnesium, sodium, potassium,or calcium may produce one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Weakness
  • Bone disorders
  • Twitching
  • Blood pressure changes
  • Confusion
  • Seizures
  • Numbness
  • Nervous system disorders
  • Fatigue, lethargy
  • Convulsions
  • Muscle spasm.

In my practice, healthy clients that are active and sweat alot in our hot climate, often mistake water retention being due to to much salt (electrolyte) but is most often due to too little.  Hyponatremia (low salt levels) may result from not eating enough foods containing sodium, too much sweating and urinating, or being over-hydrated.  When sodium levels are low, our bodies can produce too much of an antidiuretic hormone which tells our kidneys to retain water.  This can also be caused by certain medications too.
