What do electrolytes do?
Electrolytes are minerals which carry an electrical charge. Water binds to these minerals which unlock channels in cell membranes, allowing the water and minerals to enter into cells more easily than water alone. These minerals perform important functions such as facilitating nerve conduction, muscle function, cognition, and digestion. Kidney use mineral balance as a signal for how much water to retain or excrete, and so electrolyte mineral balance is important for balancing the amount of water in our bodies.
