Electrolytes are essential minerals—including sodium, calcium, chloride, and potassium—that are vital to many key functions in the body. They're often talked about in association with dehydration. We require them for fluid balance, blood pressure regulation, and muscle contractions.
Not having enough electrolytes causes cramps and muscle soreness, headaches, swelling and water retention, feeling of hitting the wall, low energy, feeling like water flushes through you, and a general sensation of being unwell.
