In sports arenas, we often see athletes drink electrolyte water to replenish their physical strength;
If I want to have a five-kilometer run in the park, I will meet some people drinking electrolyte water for rehydration;
Of course, sports parties and iron parties holding electrolyte water in the gym are also everywhere, almost everybody has a bottle.
Why do they drink electrolyte water after exercise?
The Sports Nutrition Engineering Research Center of Beijing Colleges and Universities conducted an experiment with a certain brand of electrolyte water VS water in August 2021. The results of the experiment found that:
1. Replenishing electrolyte water can effectively reduce the amount of urine discharged during long-term sitting, and effectively retain the intake of water. Electrolyte water can also effectively relieve thirst.
2. Replenishing electrolyte water before exercise can provide the body with extra Na+, effectively retain the intake of water, reduce the degree of dehydration after exercise, and at the same time help maintain the body's electrolyte balance during exercise. Keep the individual in a better mood and exercise state.
It seems that the relationship between electrolyte water and exercise is very close.
