What’s in My Electrolyte Powder?

By now, you have likely experienced the power of electrolytes. They come in many forms, from the foods we eat to bottled beverages, tablets, and most commonly, electrolyte powders. There truly is an option that works for everyone!

Whether you’re recovering from sickness, a sweaty workout session, or a long day out in the sun, having an electrolyte powder on hand is the fastest way to give your system a boost it will be grateful for. But why is that? Electrolyte beverages contain essential nutrients that are beneficial to us. No matter your age, our bodies need electrolytes to keep us feeling and functioning at our best.

Electrolytes are substances that help us regulate chemical reactions. They are called electrolytes because they conduct electrical charges throughout the body. For example, in order for us to curl our bicep, the muscles in our arm need to contract and relax, two processes that rely on electrical conduction. When our bodies are low on the electrolytes they need, we can experience problems in the system, like muscle cramps, weakness, and fatigue. 

In order for us to keep our physiological functions running smoothly, especially for individuals who consistently push their bodies to their limits, replenishing electrolytes is not just a luxury. It’s a necessity.

Three Key Electrolyte Nutrients That Power Our Bodies

The 10X Health Electrolyte powder is packed with essential nutrients like potassium, sodium, and magnesium that help us move our muscles, regulate fluids, and so much more. While they all work together in the body, each nutrient has a slightly different set of functions to support. Let’s break down these key components to see what makes them so important. 


Potassium is most commonly known for its role in nerve and muscle function. If you have ever had a gnarly cramp after a workout, chances are low levels of potassium were to blame. This is why it’s always recommended for those who are active to replenish their electrolytes before, during, and after an intense session. 

Potassium also controls fluids in the body and impacts blood pressure. Increased potassium consumption has been shown to lower blood pressure, which can significantly reduce the risk of strokes and heart diseases. 


Sodium plays a large role in how electrolytes balance our physiological systems. From regulating blood and heart pressure to transmitting nerve impulses, and aiding in muscle contraction, maintaining healthy levels of sodium in our system can have lasting effects. Sodium even plays a role in bone health! 

Most importantly, sodium aids in water absorption. In our bodies, water is diffused through a process called osmosis. This is when water moves through our cell membranes from an area of low solute concentration to an area of higher concentration. As we add electrolytes to our system, particularly sodium, this increases the transport of water throughout the body. 


Did you know that magnesium is important for genomic stability? In addition to the production of genetic material (DNA and RNA), magnesium is also required for the removal of damaged DNA. These damages can occur due to environmental factors, complications in the replication process, and other internal influences. 

Magnesium also helps regulate glucose levels and gastrointestinal activity and enhances the immune system. Every time you mix up your electrolyte powder, you are helping repair your body on a genetic level as much as a systemic level! 

Dehydration and Electrolytes

While potassium, sodium, and magnesium are vital to our body’s function, they wouldn’t be effective without water. Water is considered an essential nutrient and is what gives electrolytes their positive or negative charge. Unfortunately, 75% of adults are chronically dehydrated. Since our bodies are around 70% water, dehydration can have significant consequences for our bodies and our ability to use the nutrients we consume. 

One of the major benefits of electrolyte packets is that they allow you to hydrate as you replenish vitamins and minerals. Unlike pre-mixed beverages, you also have full control of how much you add. Water can influence endurance, power, and strength. When it comes to enhancing your wellness routine, make sure you include hydration in your recovery plans.
