In the human body, many of us are unfamiliar or improperly educated about electrolyte imbalance. You might be wondering “Aren't Electrolytes something I learned in Chemistry? More so, why is it important for our bodies and how could it tragically affect our health? Electrolytes are “any of the ions (as of sodium, or calcium) that the biological fluid regulate or affect most metabolic processes such as the flow of nutrients into and waste products out of cells (Merriam Webster). What does this mean? Basically, the essential ions needed in the body such as calcium, sodium, chlorine, phosphate, and magnesium help in regulating the right amount of fluid in the body, balance the body PH level, control how nutrients are retained in the body and how waste are removed from the body. It is important to notice when electrolyte is hi or low. Eating a balance meal and drinking the right amount of water help reduce electrolyte imbalance. Make sure your body is properly regulated and cared for always! Consult your doctor, to help you identify and treat the cause of Electrolyte imbalance.
