Electrolyte Forte (Energy metabolism, muscle function and inflammatory support) 5 oz., 150 grams
Electrolyte Forte from Biotics Research Corp.
Electrolyte Forte is a pure and refreshing electrolyte formula that contains key minerals and nutrients designed to support healthy energy metabolism, muscle function and inflammatory response.*
Electrolyte Forte contains beneficial doses of targeted minerals like magnesium, potassium and calcium, along with less sodium than is typically found in electrolyte formulas. Sweetened with monk fruit, and boosted with vitamin C, taurine, beetroot and pomegranate juices, Electrolyte Forte is an ideal electrolyte formula to foster clinically significant cellular replenishment.*
Electrolytes are minerals that carry an electric charge and are found in our body’s cells and blood. They include sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphate, chloride, and bicarbonate and play vital roles in maintaining homeostasis. Electrolytes are vital for maintaining cellular hydration, especially during physical activities.
Electrolytes regulate nerve and muscle function, hydrate the body, balance blood pH and pressure, and help rebuild damaged tissue. At key mineral doses, they are needed for multiple metabolic and cardiovascular functions, including blood pressure regulation, myocardial metabolism and effective insulin action.
When we sweat, our bodies lose water and electrolytes and, without replenishing these, we may experience fatigue, muscle cramping, and, in severe cases, hyponatremia – a potentially life-threatening condition caused by low sodium levels. Sodium also helps maintain the balance of fluids in the body, essential to organ function, and plays a crucial role in nerve impulse transmission and muscle contraction. Because sodium is highlighted as vitally important, it has received a lot of attention and focus recently, particularly among manufacturers of electrolyte formulas.
Electrolytes, particularly sodium, are integral to our body’s proper function. While electrolyte supplementation can be beneficial for everyone, it’s vital to be mindful of the sodium content, added sugars and unnecessary ingredients.
“Calcium and magnesium balance are optimal as well,” says Dr. Hill. “Having 150 mg of magnesium paired with an equal amount of calcium promotes muscle contraction, not just skeletal, and more easily repletes often deficient magnesium.”
Magnesium is considered the most underestimated electrolyte deficiency in the U.S. (primarily because of insufficient dietary intake), its role in energy metabolism is critically important, and deficiency has been associated with impaired insulin signaling, low-grade inflammation (often due to overexertion), and both diabetes and metabolic syndrome. When choosing an electrolyte formulate, it’s important to ensure proper magnesium content.
With the right formula, optimal cellular replenishment can be achieved with no deleterious health effects.
