 Calcium: It assists in cell division, bone development, muscle contraction, signaling of nerves, ad clotting of blood.

  • Magnesium: It assists with bone development, protein-fluid stability, muscle contraction, regulated heartbeat, lowered anxiety, and proper digestion.

  • Potassium: Maintains balanced blood pressure, controls heartbeat, facilitates muscle contraction. 

More on Electrolytes and Their Imbalance

Electrolytes are chemical substances that exist in sweat, urine, and blood. These electrolytes carry charges that split into ions (both positive and negative) when dissolved inside water. 

When there’s an electrolyte imbalance, it reflects in your overall health. Certain symptoms that may surface include anxiety, fever, restlessness, irregular heartbeat, insomnia, dehydration, muscle pain, spasm, tiredness, and persistent headaches.

These electrolyte imbalances are reflected by a decrease or increase in the electrolyte per liter of blood (mEq/L) standard measure. Check out more info on Electrolyte Solution for adults here.
