So since that day I have been researching information on these two drinks to see which one has the most electrolytes. With this experiment I will be testing with each drink .And calculate the electrolytes in them and see which one has the most. An electrolyte is a liquid or a gel that contain ions. “Electrolytes turn on all thought and motion, almost like a wall switch. They trigger all events like muscle action by controlling ion channels”(Edward Kane, 2010).Electrolytes have four minerals that include Sodium, (Na) Potassium, (K), Magnesium (Mg), and Calcium (Ca).
Electrolytes help us by giving us an electrically-charge. Our brain uses it, so that they can send messages to others parts of our body so it can continue its function. And that’s very important because without it our nervous system, heart, and muscles won’t work properly. For example, when you exercise you lose electrolytes in your sweat. Or excessive vomiting, diarrhea and high fevers.
Those electrolytes must be replaced to keep the electrolyte level of your body fluids normal. So that your body can work properly because if you have low levels of electrolytes you may get dizziness and muscles cramps or weakness. Some more serious things that can happen is irregular heartbeat, mental confusion, changes in your blood pressure, and seizures. To prevent that you have to keep hydrated and
