Steadfast Nutrition’s SteadLytes is an electrolyte-replenishing supplement, containing all five electrolytes: calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium, and chloride, and vitamins C and B12 to optimally hydrate yourself, restore electrolytes lost during training, and minimise muscle cramps, and improve athletic performance.
The water-soluble, effervescent tablet absorbs quickly in the body and is soothing on the stomach- effervescence improves concentration and nutrient delivery.
Electrolyte imbalance can cause dehydration (caused by excess heat), vomiting, or diarrhoea. Symptoms of electrolyte imbalance are fatigue, irregular heart rate, numbness and tingling, headache, muscle cramps, weakness, and confusion.
Benefits of SteadLytes
Electrolytes are vital for signal transmission, which helps in fluid balance, muscle contraction, and nervous system function- Steadlytes provides all the critical electrolytes needed to perform this function.
Vitamin C in Steadlytes lowers fatigue and muscular pain; Vitamin B12 helps preserve bone mineral density, making SteadLytes a healthier and faster way to hydrate yourself and balance the pH of your body cells.
What are electrolytes, and what is their role?
Electrolytes are minerals crucial to our bodies because they balance the amount of water and pH (a measure of acidity and alkalinity), enable the exchange of nutrients and waste between cells, regulate blood pressure, brain and muscle function, help transmit nerve impulses to neighbouring cells, and form blood clots and new tissues.
Electrolytes are obtained from food, liquids, and fluids. Electrolyte content in the body is regulated by hormones in the kidney and adrenal glands. We lose electrolytes every day through sweating and vigorous activity, which can cause dehydration and symptoms such as weakness, muscle cramps, nausea, dizziness, headaches, and exhaustion if not supplemented.
Keeping a healthy electrolyte concentration also triggers the thirst mechanism when the body becomes water-deficient.
Ingredients in SteadLytes and their role:
Sodium: It’s one of the most basic electrolytes in extracellular fluid that maintains extracellular fluid volume, regulates body fluid, and maintains the acid-base balance. Sodium also improves brain function, relieves muscle cramps, eliminates carbon dioxide, controls glucose absorption, and controls blood pressure.
Potassium: It supports healthy blood pressure, regulates muscle contractions and other neurological processes, is essential for heart function, and keeps cardiac diseases at bay.
Calcium: Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body, which strengthens bones and teeth, regulates muscle contraction, cardiac rhythm, and blood pressure, and is a co-factor for many enzymes which cannot work in its absence.
Magnesium: Magnesium helps cells process food into energy for exercise. Magnesium deficiency weakens muscles, reducing their capacity to breathe, and can even lead to cardiac arrest.
Chloride: Chloride is the most plentiful ion in the body, which plays a significant role in fluid and acid-base balance and oxygen delivery to cells.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that increases immunity and reduces tiredness and muscle stiffness. It helps absorb iron and expedites wound healing.
Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) is essential for forming red blood cells and DNA. It protects blood and nerve cells, helps in the growth of brain cells, and maintains bone density, reducing the chance of fractures.
How should you take SteadLytes?
