Designed for optimal hydration, E-Charge contains potassium, sodium, chloride, and magnesium. These are the most plentiful electrolytes in the body and are lost throughout the day, especially after excessive sweating. To support exercise recovery and energy production E-Charge contains D-ribose along with taurine, an important amino acid that regulates cellular electrolyte flow. Vitamin C, quercetin, and citrus bioflavonoids support the vascular system by helping build collagen, one of the main structural components of blood vessels. **
The role of electrolytes in heart health
The electrical system of the heart is regulated partially by potassium, thus keeping a healthy heartbeat. When paired with sodium, this critical electrolyte helps to maintain electrical balance within the heart. Potassium must not dip too low, or rise too high, thus controlled by this healthy balance with sodium. Magnesium is also one of the most abundant minerals in the body and is part of the potassium electrolyte regulation essential for healthy blood pressure.
Vitamin C supports the cardiovascular system by helping to build healthy collagen, which is one of the main structural components of blood vessels. Quercetin, rutin, and other bioflavonoids along with Vitamin C offer anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and vasoprotective benefits, especially for small capillaries. Leaky capillaries that are weak might result in aches, pains, and weakness in the extremities, nighttime leg cramps, and easy bruising/bleeding from even very minor trauma.
Stress, illness, and replacing electrolytes
Chronic stress can lead to low levels of electrolytes, especially magnesium and potassium. In today’s high-stress society, adrenal burnout and other hormonal disturbances are commonplace. Weak adrenals, for example, make the body unable to hold onto potassium. During times of stress, the body’s need for vitamin C may be increased, as vitamin C is crucial for healthy adrenal function. E-Charge can be used to improve symptoms of dehydration after excessive diarrhea or vomiting or after excessive sweating. Symptoms of low electrolytes may include fatigue, lethargy, dizziness, cramping or twitching, tachycardia, arrhythmia, heavy legs, irritability, and/or noise sensitivity. E-Charge is safe for children during any illness involving diarrhea or vomiting and prevents dehydration.*
Why we use Stevia and not Sucralose
Artificial sweeteners such as sucralose have been traditionally used as a cheap and easy way to sweeten consumable products. It’s added to many products to make them super sweet without the side effect of sugar. Research now is showing that these super sweet artificial sweeteners are increasing insulin resistance and inflammation in the liver. E-Charge is a clean electrolyte mix that contains NO artificial sweeteners or colors, cane sugar, or GMOs. It has a nice tasting lemon-orange flavor with sweetness from a small amount of natural, organic stevia. Stevia does not raise blood sugars. If you haven’t liked stevia in the past because of the bitter after taste, we promise you won’t find that in E-Charge!
When should you NOT take E-Charge?
Those with sodium-sensitive hypertension should not take E-Charge, those with a pacemaker, and those with high blood sodium or potassium levels.
