Current approaches to electrolyte supplementation only focus on five or six main electrolytes.
What these supplements fail to consider is the synergistic relationship of electrolytes and that when you sweat, you lose up to 78+ which all need to be replaced and your body cannot produce on their own.
Many supplements on the market are a waste of money, a waste of time and can have a detrimental impact due to additives, sugar replacements and poorly balanced minerals.
In fact, these types of supplements can prevent your cells from functioning correctly, placing demands on other nutrients that your cells can’t meet. Many supplements contain the wrong amounts and ratios of nutrients, have the wrong delivery systems, and are formulated incorrectly. They are formulated to meet marketing claims rather than working within the body. They can have a toxic effect on the cells and draw essential nutrients away from where they need to be.
You buy supplements to prevent cramping and yet you still cramp. You buy supplements to promote faster recovery, but your recovery is still slow. You buy supplements to repair but you are still waiting to be at your best. Are your current supplements the ones that cannot work?
The human body is an advanced biochemical factory; every mineral/electrolyte directly affects other minerals and so on. The mineral wheel depicts the synergistic and antagonistic relationships between various minerals in the body.
All electrolytes work in synergy, but if you take one in excess, you affect several others, negatively impacting important ratios and causing dysfunction in metabolic chemistry. Consuming a small number of minerals in isolation will lead to biochemical imbalance and interference of the electrochemical process within the cell.
