The book, “Fueling For Peak Performance”, by certified specialist in performance nutrition Nina Anderson, describes exactly what electrolytes are, what they do for the body, and why these trace minerals are necessary for the body to function properly during exercise.

According to Nina Anderson SPN, author of Fueling For Peak Performance, “as the heart rate increases, oxygen and nutrient delivery to the muscles can drop 10% even with mild exercise.” Water losses equal to 2% of our body weight and will impact heat regulation. At a 3% loss in body water, there is a decrease in muscle cell contraction times. When fluid losses equal 4% of body weight, there is a 5-10% drop in overall performance which can last up to four hours. Most athletes also need to be aware that along with fluids, electrolytes and essential minerals are depleted as well. Mineral replacement is essential to helping restore proper blood volume and blood sugar levels, and is necessary for enzymatic reactions that promote proper blood volume. Without them the quality of performance during long-term or explosive short-term exercise declines. There are a number of minerals and trace elements that must be present for growth and development for all the body processes to work. Approximately 4% of the human body mass is composed of 21 macro and trace minerals that are essential for life. When mineral levels are insufficient to meet the demands of the body under emotional, physiological, and psychological stresses such as during physical activity, the result will most likely be a substandard level of performance. For athletes or weekend exercisers, this increases the risk of serious injury and reduces the recovery rate after strenuous work or exercise. Most of us are not ingesting sufficient amounts of minerals because our food and water is mineral deficient. To compound problems, athletes often induce low body weights by maintaining restrictive diets, which do not contain the variety of foods needed for ingesting a wide range of minerals. Overlooked by most athletes and most sports drink companies is the supplemental need for a multi-electrolyte solution that provides a total complement of trace minerals. These trace minerals provide sustenance for the entire body, without which our health is compromised. The book, “Fueling For Peak Performance”, by certified specialist in performance nutrition Nina Anderson, describes exactly what electrolytes are, what they do for the body, and why these trace minerals are necessary for the body to function properly during exercise.

Excerpt

Introduction

A car battery runs because of electrolytes. Each cell has electrical properties and electric potential much like that of a battery. The electron and electrical force facilitates life. This electrical force is transmitted through the nervous system through chemical neurotransmitters which are made from and stimulated by electrolytes and macro (trace) minerals

According to the U.S. Senate Document #264, (1936), “It is bad news to learn from our leading authorities that 99 percent of the American people are deficient in minerals.” It continues, “Our physical well-being is more directly dependent upon the minerals we take into our systems than upon the calories or vitamins, or upon the precise proportion of starch, protein or carbohydrates we consume?” A marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease, particularly, degenerative disease.

The American College of Sports Medicine reports that consuming adequate food and fluid before, during, and after exercise can help maintain blood glucose levels during exercise, maximize exercise performance, and improve recovery time. Athletes should be well hydrated before beginning exercise and should also drink enough fluid during and after exercise to balance fluid losses.

Sports endurance will be compromised if dehydration worsens. Heart rate increases and oxygen (and nutrient delivery to the muscles) can drop 10 percent even with mild exercise like hiking. Unreplaced water losses equal 2 percent of body weight and will impact heat regulation. At 3 percent loss there is a decrease in muscle cell contraction times and when fluid losses equal 4 percent of body weight there is a 5-10 percent drop in overall performance which can last up to four hours. Lost with this fluid are electrolytes and essential minerals. Mineral replacement is essential to helping restore proper blood volume and blood sugar levels, and is necessary for enzymatic reactions that promote proper blood volume. Without them the quality of performance during long-term or explosive short-term exercise decreases.

Manufacturers have come to the rescue with many flavored and sweetened sports drinks, but are they all the same? These include unsweetened electrolyte replacement drinks, carbohydrate-electrolyte drinks, carbohydrate and protein drinks, and functional fluids (nutrients added such as vitamins or herbs). Many drinks include high-caloric sugars (glucose, fructose, maltodextrin, cereal starches) as carbohydrates. These are not recommended for dieters or diabetics and may not be beneficial in electrolyte drinks because the added sugar needs to be broken down by the digestive system thus delaying electrolyte absorption. Sports drinks that contain not only water, but also sodium and carbohydrates, do not quench thirst as quickly as water does. When your body wants water, it wants it immediately, and carbohydrates may actually interfere with water absorption.

In this book we will explain the need for specific electrolytes and broad-spectrum trace minerals. Sports drink may be replacing lost salts but that doesn’t help your brain or the rest of your body that needs replacement from other trace elements.
