Electrolytes are minerals that turn into charged particles (ions) when dissolved in water. The primary ions of electrolytes are sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), calcium (Ca++), magnesium (Mg++), chloride (Cl-), phosphate (PO4---), and bicarbonate (HCO3-).

The body maintains a subtle and complex electrolyte balance, which affects and regulates the hydration of the body and blood pH.

Electrolytes are critical for nerve and muscle function. Muscle contraction is dependent upon calcium (Ca++), sodium (Na+), and potassium (K+).
