Bix Active contains the four main electrolytes: sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Those are critical for athletes due to their roles in maintaining fluid balance, nerve function, and muscle contractions.
- Sodium: Vital for fluid balance, sodium helps regulate hydration levels and supports nerve function. During exercise, especially in endurance sports, athletes lose sodium through sweat. Adequate sodium intake helps prevent dehydration and muscle cramps.
- Potassium: Essential for maintaining proper muscle function and regulating heartbeat, potassium works in conjunction with sodium to manage fluid balance. It helps prevent muscle cramps and supports the transmission of nerve impulses.
- Calcium: While primarily known for its role in bone health, calcium is also crucial for muscle contractions, including the heart muscle. It aids in muscle function, supporting smooth and coordinated movements during exercise.
- Magnesium: Plays a role in over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body, including energy production and muscle function. Magnesium supports proper muscle contractions and relaxation, helps reduce muscle cramps, and supports energy metabolism during exercise.
