We all throw a magnesium "effervescent tablet" in the glass at some point. But if you're into endurance activity, just one mineral isn't enough. Activlab Electrolytes contain four electrolytes in equal percentages (sodium, potassium, magnesium and chloride), which prevents both muscle cramps and body exhaustion.
During physical activity, we try to avoid dehydration - we drink more fluids than we would otherwise, but water itself follows the salt, or 'sodium', pathway. What happens? The cell becomes overfilled with water and the swollen cell leads to muscle cramps. But this is not the only cause - cramps are often also caused by too much excitation and too many nerve metabolites. Prolonged exercise leads to a gradual failure of the nervous system - when the muscles are still weak, muscle contractions and coordination are impaired. Magnesium prevents the cell from being over-excited, while sodium and potassium ensure normal transmission of nerve signals. Athletes who add minerals to their drinks are less tired during activity, their muscles work more coordinated and recovery is faster.
Electrolytes are a convenient solution for on-the-go - just fill the sports bootle with water and drop in one or two effervescent tablets.
