Boissons électrolytes-généralités

Because the body cannot synthesise the minerals it needs. Electrolytes must be supplied daily through nutrition and hydration. Certain foods such as potatoes, beans, bananas, spinach and milk can help replenish stores but their consumption does not cover the recommended daily intake.

Drinking electrolyte drinks helps to compensate for electrolyte losses and thus combat fatigue, avoid cramps and improve hydration.

During exercise, electrolytes in the blood are rapidly eliminated through urine and perspiration. In fact, the saltier your sweat, the more electrolytes it contains. Contrary to what you might think, you need to take in more electrolytes to compensate for these losses. 

Electrolytes allow athletes to :       

  • Delay the effects of fatigue by providing magnesium.
  • Obtain optimal hydration through sodium, which regulates fluids by osmosis.
  • Compensate for water losses with potassium, which acts as a complement to sodium. An imbalance in the sodium/potassium balance can lead to dehydration or high blood pressure.
  • Improve muscular resistance through calcium but also facilitate cellular exchanges.

With a minimum of sugar (dextrose, one of the sugars derived from corn in particular), the electrolyte-rich drink offers a low carbohydrate intake that is interesting during exercise.

Dextrose is easily assimilated by the human body and accelerates the assimilation of various minerals. It is a type of simple sugar similar to fructose and glucose and allows for optimal hydration.

Like all our products, our ingredients are natural: we have selected the minerals that are best assimilated by the body (trisodium citrate, potassium chloride, fine salt, tri-magnesium citrate), our flavours are natural and our drinks are free of additives!

Our electrolyte drink comes in the form of a powder sachet (20 g) to be diluted with 1L of fresh water. You can consume the drink before, during and after exercise to maintain optimal hydration and accelerate recovery.

  • Beforehand, it helps to prevent losses linked to exercise.
  • During exercise, these drinks help to optimise performance, maintain optimum energy throughout the race and combat dehydration.
  • Then, after exercise, electrolytes will accelerate the recovery process and rebuild the body's mineral reserves.

The recommended amount will vary according to gender, weight, type of effort and also your tendency to sweat more or less. However, we recommend that you do not take more than one sachet per hour and a half of exercise.

If you tend to drink a lot, you can simply take one bottle containing Holyfat electrolyte drink and another containing only water.

On the other hand, for an effort of less than 1 hour, a simple consumption of mineral water is sufficient.

Boissons électrolytes-précision

Too much is never good.

Over-consumption of electrolyte drinks, without intense physical activity, can lead to various problems:

  • Hypercalcaemia (too much calcium) can cause constipation, nausea, vomiting leading to dehydration.
  • Hyperkalaemia (too much potassium) may be mild and cause few symptoms or be asymptomatic; in its more severe form, hyperkalaemia causes arrhythmia which can lead to death when the level is very high.
  • Hypernatremia (too high a sodium level) may be the result of dehydration due to low water intake or excessive sweating. It can be recognised by a feeling of unquenchable thirst.

It is recommended not to take more than one sachet (20g) per hour and a half of effort.

In general, electrolyte drinks come in 2 formats : tablets or powders, which dissolve in a greater or lesser amount of water. 

At Holyfat we have chosen to present our electrolyte drink in powder form in order to add a minimum of ingredients (effervescent tablets are made with bicarbonate of soda for example) but also to have a perfect dissolution without leaving any residue. 

As far as the format is concerned. The sachets are available individually (20 g), but we are currently studying the possibility of presenting our electrolyte drinks in a larger format (300 g jar).
