Electrolytes are minerals that carry an electric charge when they are dissolved in a liquid. The heart, muscle and nerve cells use electrolytes to carry electrical impulses to other cells. Electrolytes are present in the body and the balance of the electrolytes is essential for normal function of our cells and our organs. Common electrolytes in human body include Sodium, Potassium, chloride and magnesium. Electrolytes are very important for normal functioning of human body. Electrolyte imbalance occurs during loss of fluids such as diarrhea or vomiting or sweating. Loss of electrolytes can lead to weakness, confusion, muscle cramps, dizziness, numbness and twitching. Hence it is very important to keep balance of electrolytes especially during intense workouts.
