We all have heard the phrase "hydration starts with water," but it might come as a surprise to some that electrolytes help to keep the body hydrated and manage water levels.
According to MedlinePlus, electrolytes "balance the amount of water in your body, balance your body's acid/base (pH) level, move nutrients into your cells, move wastes out of your cells, make sure that your nerves, muscles, the heart, and the brain work the way they should."
They not only keep the body hydrated year-round, but electrolytes help to keep it cool during the warmer months. The body cannot remain hydrated without consuming electrolytes.
Electrolytes are micronutrients sodium, calcium, potassium, chloride, phosphate, and magnesium. They can be consumed through both food and fluids.
