The Truth About Electrolytes
We all know that drinking plenty of water is a requirement for optimal health. Getting water into the body is the only the first step to hydration however. To keep it there, and get it into cells and tissues, we need electrolytes like potassium and sodium. For optimum hydration, try to keep those two electrolytes in balance. Most of us get enough sodium, but could increase our intake of potassium-rich foods. You know about bananas being a good source of potassium, but also chard, potatoes and avocado are also great choices.
