Your Guide To Buying an Electrolyte Tablet

By #<Author:0x00007fa232620d00>

    Over 50 years ago, Gatorade was developed as one of the first sports drinks. The head coach of the Florida Gators football team recommended his players drink it to supplement the fluids and electrolytes that they lose during practice. (The Gators won the Orange Bowl two years later—which boosted the popularity of the drink.) Whether or not Gatorade helps athletes perform better, it is important that a person maintains a proper balance of water, salts and minerals, especially after a lot of physical exertion. Also, if a person loses a lot of fluids due to diarrhea, it's important to replenish the body's fluids and minerals. That's where electrolyte tablets come in: They can provide you with sugar for extra energy, as well as sodium, potassium, calcium, and even vitamins. Here is a guide to some of the best electrolyte tablets on the market.

    It's possible to classify the electrolyte tablets by what they contain:

    • Electrolytes: The body's minerals—the most important of which are sodium, potassium, calcium--are in ionic or electrolyte form. (For example, table salt, consisting of sodium and chloride, will break up into sodium and chlorine ions when dissolved in water. These ions are also called electrolytes.) The human body requires almost 60 of the elements that occur in nature. Electrolyte tablets contain the minerals in salt form: sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium.

    • Vitamins: Some electrolyte tablets will contain also B vitamins and Vitamin C. Vitamin D can be added as well—it helps the body absorb and utilize calcium.

    • Stimulants: This is meant to give you an extra boost after physical exertion. Some tablets will have caffeine added to give that extra buzz. But because caffeine is addictive, some tablets try other natural stimulants, such as Rhodiola Rosea.

    • Sugar or a sugar substitute: Sports drinks like Gatorade are high in sugar (in fact, people who drink them without any physical activity will notice a significant weight gain). So a lot of electrolyte tablets contain natural low-calorie sweeteners instead.

    There are also different forms in which the electrolyte solution is marketed:

    • Effervescent tablets: You dissolve these in a glass of water. You'll have to carry water along with you, of course—there are hydration backpacks just for this purpose. This is the best and most effective, since an athlete losing electrolytes also loses water to sweat. It's essential to replenish that water too. And the effervescent tablets give you a carbonated drink, like soda.

    • Capsules: There are also electrolyte capsules, that you swallow down with a glass of water (like a typical vitamin or pill).

    • Chewable tablets: These are tablets that you can chew down without water. These can be dissolved in a glass of water, but they are intended to be sucked on or chewed.

    • Other forms: There are also electrolyte solutions, not in tablet form, that you add to a glass of water, or drink straight with a spoon. This will provide you with all the benefits of a typical sports drink or electrolyte drink.

    Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their new stuff:

    • Taste: A big factor in the popularity of sports drinks is the taste. A lot of effort is put into producing tablets that make for an enjoyable drink. You'll see electrolyte tablets in a variety of flavors.

    • Before and after workouts: The manufacturers suggest different amounts of electrolytes before and after exertion and training—either to prevent cramps during, or to speed up the recovery afterwards.

    • Water-resistant container: It's good if the packaging for the electrolyte tablets is water-resistant. If you keep a roll of tablets in your pocket or in your backpack, they might otherwise turn into a soggy mess if you sweat too much or if it rains. Also, there are dispensers to take out one capsule or tablet at a time. The dispenser can be strapped onto your bike's handlebars, or on your belt.

    • Why not just drink water?: If a person sweats heavily, but drinks only water, there is a risk of having too little sodium in the blood, known as hyponatremia. A person sweat 1000 mg of sodium in every liter of perspiration—so there has to a way of getting that sodium back in the system. This problem is found among endurance event athletes and marathon runners. Electrolyte tablets can help prevent that condition, by giving just the right balance of electrolytes.

    • Prevents muscle cramps: Some of the causes of muscle cramps are dehydration and low blood salt. So losing a lot of water to sweat is a prime cause. Another cause is an electrolyte disturbance. Getting the proper amount of sodium, potassium and calcium electrolytes in the body will be a good way of avoiding cramps.

    • Not just for athletes: If you work outdoors, and/or if it's especially hot outside, you will lose water in sweat. It's a good idea to use electrolyte tablets in this situation as well. They will help avoid heat exhaustion.
