And why do our bodies need them? This new video from the American Chemical Society breaks down the science behind the crucial salts (yep, they’re salts). In a nutshell: Once electrolytes (think.

Electrolytes are minerals that play a very important role in the body. These little guys supply an electrical current that helps control your heartbeat, coordinate muscle contraction and control the movement of water in the body, so fluids stay evenly distributed, per the. Electrolytes, which are found in sports nutrition products as well as whole foods like bananas and sweet potatoes, are minerals that have an electric charge. Once they’re in. From contracting muscles, staying hydrated to regulating fluid levels, electrolytes support a number of functions.

Other purposes of electrolytes support nerve cell communication, release of hormones, blood clotting and tissue repair. “Electrolytes are minerals that carry an electric charge needed for nerve control, muscle contraction, hydration, and optimal physiological pH,” says Monica Auslander Moreno, MS, RD, LD/N, nutrition consultant for RSP Nutrition. Electrolytes are minerals lik. So electrolytes are everywhere, which is good, because without them our body would stop functioning. “There many different types of electrolyte. Electrolytes (fancy word for Sodium & Potassium) and Why You Need Them August 15, 2020 by TonyaTittle Electrolytes are analogous to the motor oil in your car—they don’t make the engine run, but they’re absolutely necessary to keep everything running smoothly.

Electrolytes are involved in a wide range of functions. They are particularly important for maintaining hydration levels, as the movement of sodium and potassium in and out of cells determines how much water our body retains or flushes out. Our nerve cells need these slightly charged particles to help carry electrical impulses around the body. Electrolytes come from specific minerals when they dissolve in water in your body. The electrical current they create fuels many vital functions.

Staying hydrating and eating a mineral-rich diet is essential to maintain a healthy balance of electrolytes (as well as lose weight and feel your best). Electrolytes are minerals that carry an electric charge. They’re found in your blood, urine and sweat and are vital to specific processes that keep your body functioning as it should.

  • I think when people experience health problems they jump to a conclusion based purely on the symptoms, and assume that their conclusion is correct. For example, if you are insulin resistant your cells are not longer absorbing nutrients, and a blood test may show vitamin or mineral deficiencies, but taking supplements will not solve the root cause of the deficiencies, which is insulin resistance for many people. Frank correctly points out time and again if you are eating proper nutritious grass fed meats, wild caught fish, eggs and organ meets you are not likely to experience any deficiencies. If you do have problems and you are doing Carnivore look at whether you are doing it properly and look for other causes too like the the state of your endocrine system.

  • Wow thx a lot I really learn from ur videos I play 3x n sometimes 4 days a wk tennis I’m a healthy 67 thx be 2 “God” had been on med 1pill a day 4 HBP 4 almost 15yrs so it’s manageable, I sweat a lot during summer months, it’s an indoor club n it’s all yr round tennis leagues, we have AC but w intense physical activities like tennis I get tired afterward go home n rest all day, I have a day rest in btw but 1 day last wk after tennis I went home n I was so tired n my whole body overwhelming tired I guess that’s lethargy I was alarmed n make a sick appointment w my Dr. but help much I explain my symptoms now ur better in knowing this prob then my visit n not much help I know I was dehydrated I only drank water little bit at a time n ate light, my friends said to drink Gatorade so I’m so glad 2 see view ur videos thx God bless appreciate U��

  • Brawndo’s got electrolytes… Let’s water the plants with it, instead of water, like what’s ín the toilet… I mean have You seen crops growing out of the toilet?

  • bro, what about whey protein.. do we really need it to build muscle esp. for fat guys fighting to get fit… a video on this would be highly appreciated

  • Professor Dave I have got a doubt ��How HF is weak electrolyte.. Cause It has electro negative flourine and a proton like hydrogen…??

  • Sort of useless video! Drinking water (plain H2O) will NOT be sufficient to replace the magnesium, potassium, calcium, chloride, sodium lost with vigorous exercise & hiking in extreme weather. For that a drink specially formulated to replace those lost electrolytes is required. Under the extreme conditions, depleted electrolytes can cause serious illness or death, so it is not a condition to be minimized.

  • But eric berg says you need 10 cups a day of vegetables. Until I read that drinking causes breakdown of muscle tissue releasing high amounts of potassium. No wonder I got dizzy, heart palpations, migraines, and about passed out. Take everything with grain of salt.

  • Thank you very match.
    Just I have a questions: what are the applications of electrolyte in the life?

    And I would like that you mention the applications of any lesson you do

    Thank you

  • OMG I was just saying earlier today that there is no scientific REAL evidence that taking all these Potassium and Magnesium supplements have any benefit. My mom has been on carnivore with me and recently went into the hospital for a hernia repair and they took her in to do the surgery but tested her blood and found/said she was very deficient in Potassium. They refused to do the surgery until her levels were back up where they say they needed to be. Got them back up over a few days of being on IV drip of Potassium. Anyway I had just said WTF our ancestors didn’t have a way to test their P levels or any levels in their blood so wtf do we??? And then you go and make this awesome informative video. Love you Frankie!

  • It might be a dumb question but how to know the molecule’s electricity? How to know if it’s a weak or strong or non just by looking to the names?

  • I’m on carnivore for almost 2 months now and on one occasion I decided to add a bit of electrolytes in pill form and my muscles started twitching in random places for almost 3 days. Food sources all the way.

  • Sodium and Potassium are crucial during exercise and it’s essential to replenish them.
    But are Magnesium and Calcium really vital during training?

  • @Campbellteaching Talk to JCU Australia or better still immigrate and teach us. Our pracs were so crappy and irrelevant. The patho was very interesting, but they too lost the plot. Lecture here and make your book required reading

  • Hey Frank. Do you know any way of getting rid of giant papillary conjunctivitis? Will carnivore/keto help protect the eyes from damage? Hope to hear from you

  • The only thing I HATE about this video is the very beginning where you have that irritating head bopping around!!! Other than that, this is a pretty good learning video!!! I would have said great video but that annoying head makes me nauseous!!! And I don’t want to loose electrolytes by throwing up!!!
    ������������������������������

  • Rock Star. I am doing carnivor now because of all the education here on YouTube.. feeling best I have felt in years and years.. To take away the excuses of can not affording it. Well I buy all my corn soy free eggs at farmers market and most meats I say 40% there and I buy cow from a small ranch and in bulk on my card and save 30% plus and liver at A local store. And I am.able to afford it. FEELING GREAT
    . MY WIFE TOO..

  • I just got my blood test results and call from my doctor. My potassium is to high. They worry about my kidney and sending me to hospital for test there. I est eggs,beef, bacon chicken,milk now and then. Butter in coffee. Why high potassium?

  • Great vid, need more heroes like you who explain in a good compact format. I got all the info I needed that would have took way longer from wikipedia etc. These vids are great when you know 80% of the details but are forgetting a key part and don’t know what it is until it comes up. Cheers!

  • Super helpful!! I’m taking a chem course in college and this helped me understand how the material I’ve learned is connected! Thanks

  • I have had tingling in my hands since beginning carnivore diet 9 months ago. It has decreased slowly but I heard that it may be caused by low zinc and B12 levels. I have never supplemented since going carnivore and am hoping that my body will normalize my electrolyte levels naturally.

  • Remember guys. This is not just for your voluntary muscles. Electrolytes are needed for proper functioning of your involuntary muscles as well… including your stomach, intestines, lungs and of course… your heart.

  • Mr.Campbell your clarity of presentation is the antidote to my terrible professor. Thank you kindly for the time and effortits most helpful.

  • 3:50 Patently false, misleading and potentially harmful. Under a fasting regiment with high intensity exercise I experience muscle cramps and headaches without adding potassium chloride and magnesium citrate to my guess what sea salt. That’s basically snake juice.

    When cutting weight and driving up water consumption, Na is not the only mineral that gets depleted either. K and Mg are important to add.

    Further, you’re making it sound like there is some Goldilocks ratio of minerals, a small violation of which will be problematic. That’s ridiculously contradicted by your claim that we should consume food with ‘naturally occurring’ mineral ratios. Well, which foods would that be? Look at meats of different animals, the mineral ratios are not strictly the same between them.

    The human body is not a rollercoaster ready to derail at the slightest bump in the tracks.

  • Your videos are so easy to understand and they clearly explain what exactly I needed to know. Very systematically and very comprehensively. Thank you a million!

  • Hi, i absolutely love your channel and wondered where i can submit a question? Please keep up the exceptional quality and uploads:)

  • Mark, ever since I’ve gone Primal/low-carb, I’ve been getting very painful cramps in my calves, to the point where it wakes me up at night. Do you think that is an electrolyte issue as well?

  • Keto is still a thing?? Why do Japanese live the longest and eat a bunch of carbs? Okinawans have the oldest people in japan and 80% of their calories come from sweet potatoes.

  • nice share man, can you make a video on how to make homemade electrolytic water? cucumber, lime and stuff? that would be cool. love your videos (Y)

  • I was hospitalized by hypokalemia and hypomagnesia from malnourishment (not eating enough, I was really poor) and probably from being on hormonal birth control (progesterone inhibits blood absorption and carriage of Mg (which also affects K levels), B12 and other nutrients. I wish you had mentioned this. Many women suffer from symptoms the think are “all in their head” when pregnant or on BC without knowing what is happening chemically in their bodies.

  • Franky, Your in-depth content, presentation and delivery are DELIGHTFUL, and may I say, your diet is making you DELICIOUSLY VITAL-looking DAY-BY-DAY you’re BEYOND BEAUTY, and I know this superior quality in you pleasantly pierces through the superficial chilly monitor and reaches tens of thousands of hearts and souls. LLLOL.

  • i’ve been watching your videos for quite a while now and only just realized that you look so much like Stannis Baratheon from Game of Thrones:)

  • I work an intense job and work out Drink coffee every morning but drink salt water throughout the day feel good for the most part I aim for 5 to 7 grams of sodium a day don’t take potassium
    Keto/ carnivore I’m back and forth

  • well they take all the minerals out of our water so for many people adding minerals and sodium in especially those that sweat alot become necessity.

  • I needed sea salt (a lot!) the first 30 days on carnivore, but then just salt to taste after the 30 days. On keto I needed a moderate amount of potassium and magnesium to feel good along with extra sodium. It’s weird how being adapted can change things.

  • We were taught that extracellular fluid includes intravascular, interstitial, and transcellular. Transcellular, or fluid within cavities such as in the pleural cavity, wasn’t mentioned here. Any reason why?

  • You need to supplement electrolytes when for some individual reason your body does not work correctly due to some underlying problem, which can not be solved. This is a concept the population in general does not understand.

  • Dr Campbell sir your every video is a treasure of knowledge even for a layman like me who has no idea about body. Thanks 17/02/2020

  • Hey Frank. Do you know any way of getting rid of giant papillary conjunctivitis? Will carnivore/keto help protect the eyes from damage? Hope to hear from you

  • Anyone who is a fan of the movie Idiocracy has heard of the word “electrolytes” before.

    ” Brawndo’s got what plants crave. It’s got electrolytes.”

  • It’s true that the input doesn’t necessarily determine the output but this stuff about binding and bio availability is where you are all leaving reason behind and just assuming absolutes without evidence. Just because there are things in plants that can bind to nutrients making them bio unavailable, no assumption that can be drawn from this is necessarily true, and implying that ALL nutrients are bound and blocked by plant compounds ABSOLUTELY is obviously just absurd. It’s good for business to sling absolutes around like it’s no thing and push dialectics but the bottom line here is that these things are not reflective of anything in the real world.

  • If I don’t supplement potassium I end up in the emergency room. Bad advice I just cant eat 4 pounds of meat an day to get my 4700mg potassium, I have to supplement potassium or die

  • Mark, ever since I’ve gone Primal/low-carb, I’ve been getting very painful cramps in my calves, to the point where it wakes me up at night. Do you think that is an electrolyte issue as well?

  • i like ur videos but as for a foreign guy not having english as my first language i really dont like duration & speed of ur videos, its hard to keep up when it goes that fast. Great vids btw:)

  • Dr. Campbell! I love you. Not in a gross way. I just appreciate your teaching gift. May God protect and bless u abundantly. Thanx for helping people. I will buy your books to support ur charity����

  • Thanks Frankie! I have a question. I have to believe in no supplements. However, I do think I have some level of magnesium deficiency, due to occasional muscle cramping. Nothing serious, but it seems thats an obvious sign of magnesium deficiency. Do you also believe that absorbing Magnesium through the skin is dangerous or bad? I take occasion Epsom salt baths and sometimes use the magnesium skin spray.

  • I hit the sauna about 3 hours a week and I always add natural sea salt or Himalayan pink salt (about a tsp) to my 2 quarts of water i drink while in the sauna for 30-45 min per session and if I forget to do that I get a headache the next day usually.

  • Professor Dave I have got a doubt ��How HF is weak electrolyte.. Cause It has electro negative flourine and a proton like hydrogen…??

  • The seaweed is not a good source of anything for a Kevore, except for an iodine, and all you need is 5 to 10 gr a day, that is all you need. The best source of minerals, vitamins, fats, protein, probiotics, prebiotics and a host of unsung heroes and 88.5% water in one package is the Goat’s milk Kefir. I drink 2 liters a day of Goat’s milk Kefir and it is a bliss.

  • Some do. Some don’t. It all comes down to bio-individuality, which even that is constantly subject to change. Thankfully biofeedback provides the necessary clues as to when & where to make adjustments.

  • What about mixing some real sea salt with some potassium chloride and magnesium chloride to produce your own “electrolyte” salt mixture and use that to season your food?

  • well they take all the minerals out of our water so for many people adding minerals and sodium in especially those that sweat alot become necessity.

  • Protons are transferred and not electrons??? I thought when protons are transferred it would be nuclear reaction how come protons were transferred from the HCl?? I was just asking because im really confused

  • My lips were never hydrated, like ever, only by luck and chance I would somehow get them to be hydrated. But with enough potassium and sodium in my diet I can now constantly keep them in good shape, which means I am finally hydrated. I get potassium from fruits and potatoes, then sodium from pink Himalayan salt with the potatoes. Today I had only fruits (edit: and animal products of course), so I will drink a glass of water and some salt in it after my 3 hour meal (I’ll call it extended omad) for the day

  • Thanks Prof. Dave. I usually don’t understand what my teacher says ( broken English and will scold you if you ask her anything) but your vids are simple so that allows me to understand. Thanks man.

    John

  • Mr.Campbell your clarity of presentation is the antidote to my terrible professor. Thank you kindly for the time and effortits most helpful.

  • Thank you, thank you Frank! This is exactly what I have experienced in the past few years. It’s like playing whack-a-mole! So great to have you confirm my suspicion.

  • I needed sea salt (a lot!) the first 30 days on carnivore, but then just salt to taste after the 30 days. On keto I needed a moderate amount of potassium and magnesium to feel good along with extra sodium. It’s weird how being adapted can change things.

  • Anyone who is a fan of the movie Idiocracy has heard of the word “electrolytes” before.

    ” Brawndo’s got what plants crave. It’s got electrolytes.”

  • I don’t have any cramp issues on carnivore but when I was doing keto and eating stuff like peanut butter and avocado I would get cramps all the time. Maybe it’s because I don’t work out a lot or my genes are suited for carnivore.

    By looking at the comments section it seems a lot of people are not like me, very interesting..

  • I hit the sauna about 3 hours a week and I always add natural sea salt or Himalayan pink salt (about a tsp) to my 2 quarts of water i drink while in the sauna for 30-45 min per session and if I forget to do that I get a headache the next day usually.

  • If I eat electrolytes when I am thirsty, my thirst is quenched. If I don’t do electrolyes when I am thirsty, water doesn’t do jack to hydrate me. Haven’t tried blood but I do know raw milk doesn’t quench my extreme thirst when I am low in electrolyes. ConcenTrace works for me…and my nails grow like the dickens.
    Edit: Not too much though. Too much Trace Minerals makes me poop. ��…a lot.

  • What about when fasting for 3 days or more? I have found that snake juice made fasting much easier, maybe it was just a psychological effect.

  • Please tell you mean this for people who are healthy without disease processes. With my Crohn’s and loss of magnesium and potassium at a rate that boggles the mind. I would dehydrate with the amount of sea salt that would be needed to keep me from muscle twitching and cramping constantly. Been doing this since 1980. I hope you meant for healthy people only. My potassium is something I lose fast.

  • Great work and great video. You explain everything really well and I’m very happy that you have made videos because they are helping me a lot in my studies…I’m finally understanding. Keep the good work and I hope to see more videos to help medical, nursing and paramadic students.

  • This video series has been extremely helpful!:) I am in nursing school and was a little confused about F&E but you have simplified it and made it very understandable!

  • Great vid, need more heroes like you who explain in a good compact format. I got all the info I needed that would have took way longer from wikipedia etc. These vids are great when you know 80% of the details but are forgetting a key part and don’t know what it is until it comes up. Cheers!

  • If the persons in 100% perfect health, then what you’re saying as correct. However, nobody’s in 100% perfect health. Allergies is a form of unhealthiness. Food sensitivities is a form of unhealthiness. People with chronic diseases (Multiple Sclerosis) require extra electrolytes. I know I can’t obtain enough electrolytes directly from my foods. I do have to settle them. It takes me twice as much energy to do the same task that you would have to do. Not to mention, I am older than you and my body just naturally doesn’t absorb as well. that’s part of aging.

  • Ok so today like many others I begin to feel tired mid day.. So I figure I need fuel & go for some stewed beef with fresh steamed green beans. Add sea salt to taste & I eat up & get plenty full… I still lacked energy & just woke from a mid day 3 hour nap… I’m beginning to think I need a mid day carb

  • Dr. Campbell! I love you. Not in a gross way. I just appreciate your teaching gift. May God protect and bless u abundantly. Thanx for helping people. I will buy your books to support ur charity����

  • if you look at the labels of sports drinks, theyre actually rubbish. theyre FULL of sugar (30-45g per 500ml) and have very little actual electrolytes in them. To make it worse, theyre often filled with sucrose and little glucose, which is essentially table sugar. So what you pay $5 per bottle is just coloured and flavoured water with table salt and table sugar in them. Absolute waste of money and wont be useful unless youre running 10+ kms

  • I’d suggest to you, that you consider doing a video on all vitamins and minerals. Similarly to how you went over the electrolytes you could talk about the vitamins and minerals role in the body. I think many people know they need their vitamins and minerals, but not why.

  • I hope you get late night muscle-cramps Frankie boy…then try not taking electrolytes LOL!
    as this will inevitably hit you as you age….. IF…. you live as long as I have….You are also NOT an Alt-Doc…or ‘Peer Reviewed’…You’re simply an autodidact wannabe quasi mouthpiece…imho

  • Some do. Some don’t. It all comes down to bio-individuality, which even that is constantly subject to change. Thankfully biofeedback provides the necessary clues as to when & where to make adjustments.

  • Great Video clip! Sorry for butting in, I am interested in your thoughts. Have you tried Carpio Incredible Diabetes Bulldozer (google it)? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my BF eradicated the diabetes with it. 

  • MG is actually needed in much higher amounts, due to our toxic environment. Its involved in over 200 biochemical reactions. Supplements are so poorly absorbed…. this is why we should be swimming in the ocean as well as getting it from diet. Can also go into trans-dermal magnesium.

  • Dear Mr Campbell,
    I would like to thank you for your fantastic videos. You cannot imagine how helpful they are to me and my fellow students (Australian nursing students). I’ve bought both of your books as well (kindle edition) and I found them really good. Please keep up your excellent contribution!
    A hug from downunder:)

  • Well, you can shit talk snake juice all you want but when you shill your amazon store at the end you lost me “don’t drink that free thing, buy my fucking seaweed”. Didn’t that guy in the UK who fasted for 385 days drink electrolyte supplemented water? What did The Fasting Fatman do? Maybe snake juice should only be used in extreme cases, but that’s not what you said.

  • MG is actually needed in much higher amounts, due to our toxic environment. Its involved in over 200 biochemical reactions. Supplements are so poorly absorbed…. this is why we should be swimming in the ocean as well as getting it from diet. Can also go into trans-dermal magnesium.

  • Dr Campbell sir your every video is a treasure of knowledge even for a layman like me who has no idea about body. Thanks 17/02/2020

  • Please help me understand. You did a comparison video on salt. Did you say the amount of minerals in sea salt is very small to compensate for adequate mineral intake? Did I get that right? Still. Does it make sense to add more salt for them mineral content? Thanks.

  • I drink a mix of coconut water and water and noted great improvements in my leg pain going up stairs so Frankie I love your videos and have to disagree with you on this. But this video is still very helpful so people know not to pop potassium pills or magnesium supplements willy nilly like popcorn or something. I do plan to get sea moss since it has most of the minerals we need and it is a food like coconut water so I’ll take the chance on the phytonutrient content

  • i am a clinical instructor in a nursing school..and i did appreciate this videos..part 1 to 3. these are very helpful..thank you very much.

  • Can you make another video about soreness? For people who don’t get sore anymore, and explain if this means their workout is not sufficient. Thank you!!

  • how fresh must the coconut water be? what if the coconut water was pastuerised, will the electolytes be affected (deactivated/destroyed)? is there an optimal ratio of electrolyteseg 200mg sodium to 350mg potassium to 100mg magnesium, etc.? Thanks!

  • Rock Star. I am doing carnivor now because of all the education here on YouTube.. feeling best I have felt in years and years.. To take away the excuses of can not affording it. Well I buy all my corn soy free eggs at farmers market and most meats I say 40% there and I buy cow from a small ranch and in bulk on my card and save 30% plus and liver at A local store. And I am.able to afford it. FEELING GREAT

  • @BellaNapolimia wow! didnt you have to learn this in your second year? im a second year student, and we’ve got an exam coming up (care of the acutely ill adult module) in which we have an essay style exam, we’ve got to do an ABCDE assessment of an acutely ill adult, they’ll give us options in the exam but one of them is likely to be on a condition that effects fluid balance

    its driving me nuts! i could so do with a renal unit placement right now!

  • Sodium and Potassium are crucial during exercise and it’s essential to replenish them.
    But are Magnesium and Calcium really vital during training?

  • I want to order more DVDs, but the email keep getting bounced back as undeliverable. Anybody know what’s going on? Is he still in business?

  • I was hospitalized by hypokalemia and hypomagnesia from malnourishment (not eating enough, I was really poor) and probably from being on hormonal birth control (progesterone inhibits blood absorption and carriage of Mg (which also affects K levels), B12 and other nutrients. I wish you had mentioned this. Many women suffer from symptoms the think are “all in their head” when pregnant or on BC without knowing what is happening chemically in their bodies.

  • Brawndo’s got electrolytes… Let’s water the plants with it, instead of water, like what’s ín the toilet… I mean have You seen crops growing out of the toilet?

  • The seaweed is not a good source of anything for a Kevore, except for an iodine, and all you need is 5 to 10 gr a day, that is all you need. The best source of minerals, vitamins, fats, protein, probiotics, prebiotics and a host of unsung heroes and 88.5% water in one package is the Goat’s milk Kefir. I drink 2 liters a day of Goat’s milk Kefir and it is a bliss.

  • I’ve been doing Keto for three months now. I’m down 35 pounds and I don’t experience any cramps. I generally only season my food with salt and I’ve never experienced the severe cramping associated with electrolyte imbalance.
    I truly believe all you really need is salt.

  • I think when people experience health problems they jump to a conclusion based purely on the symptoms, and assume that their conclusion is correct. For example, if you are insulin resistant your cells are not longer absorbing nutrients, and a blood test may show vitamin or mineral deficiencies, but taking supplements will not solve the root cause of the deficiencies, which is insulin resistance for many people. Frank correctly points out time and again if you are eating proper nutritious grass fed meats, wild caught fish, eggs and organ meets you are not likely to experience any deficiencies. If you do have problems and you are doing Carnivore look at whether you are doing it properly and look for other causes too like the the state of your endocrine system.

  • Interesting. What you say lines up with my long-researched understanding that we should be able to get everything we need from our diet. My parents always shouted at me for over-salting my food. I didn’t, really. I wasn’t getting sufficient electrolytes from the foods my family provided.

  • Frank, is it possible that you add your information sources (links) so we can verify ourselves the info you are providing us with…thanks:)

  • bro, what about whey protein.. do we really need it to build muscle esp. for fat guys fighting to get fit… a video on this would be highly appreciated

  • This was incredibly helpful. I’m a fitness addict who never looked into what these actually are for, but now I’m going to be keep a closer eye on my diet in terms of this substance..to add onto all the others haha. Again, thank you!
