Mineral loss after exercise – Don’t sweat it!
Sweating is our primary mechanism of regulating body temperature. It is also a great way of ridding the body of toxins through the skin. However, when we perspire, we don’t only lose the bad stuff.
During exercise, saunas, bikram yoga or intense heat, we also lose important electrolytes and vital minerals, such as sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium and zinc through our skin.
It is important to replenish these components as it enables us to become optimally hydrated after an intense training session and prevent any chronic repercussion of a deficiency in any of these key minerals.
These minerals play a key role in everything from putting on muscle mass to preventing depression. Coconut water is a great source of electrolyte and is described as nature’s energy drink.
In place of sugar laden sports and energy drinks that are devoid of nutrients, coconut water is a far superior option if you are a competitive sports athlete or are simply concerned with becoming optimally hydrated after a tough training session.
In addition, to address the issue of loss of minerals during prolonged perspiration, we recommend to take an all-in-one multi-vitamin to replenish any minerals lost during this process.
