Hydration and Electrolyte Replacement

 

It is very important to keep yourself well hydrated and to replace the loss of electrolytes (body salts and minerals) lost during class in your sweat.  Dehydration and electrolyte imbalance go hand in hand.  Water alone is insufficient!!!  Please replace the sodium, potassium, chloride, and magnesium in your body.

We offer these products to help you with your class:

  • Coconut water  (670mg potassium and 60mg sodium)
  • V8  (320mg potassium and 330mg sodium)
  • Electrolyte powders you can add to your water
  • Gatorade  (75mg potassium and 270 mg sodium

 

Dehydration Symptoms

 

  • Cool, clammy skin
  • Little or no urine with dark color and strong smell
  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion
  • Poor concentration
  • Irregular heartbeat, fast or hurried, skipping beats
  • Low blood pressure
  • Fast, shallow breathing
  • Mottled skin on elbows and knees
  • Cramps


Caffeine and alcohol are diuretics; they will increase the flow of urine and pull water and electrolytes from your body!
