Electrolytes – The Most Underrated Supplement

KTS Solutions, Electrolytes

Supplements are a billion-dollar industry. People are always looking for something they can take to give them a performance boost, fat loss advantage or a muscle-building edge.

But the best supplements are simple. They’re the ones that support our baseline health. They don’t amp us up or aggressively push biochemical pathways, they simply fill in the ‘blanks’.

So if you ask me what my all-time favourite supplement is, my answer is quite simple… 


Sodium, Phosphorous, Magnesium, Chloride and Potassium. Probably the most unsexy sounding supplement on the market but hear me out… 

Dehydration can dramatically affect our physical and mental performance. In some studies, dehydrated participants performance dropped by half. Another study showed that dehydration had a dramatic affect on all physical performance activities lasting more than 30 seconds, in some cases as much as 70%! 

That’s huge!

Now consider most people are chronically dehydrated. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the average Australian only consumes 1064 to 1264 mls of pure water daily. In addition to water consumption, the average Australian consumes 325 mls of non-discretionary beverages (mainly tea and coffee), and coffee particularly is a mild diuretic.

Now, let’s compound that with hard workouts, a high protein diet and stress. All things that can attribute to far less than optimal electrolyte balance (and thats not even mentioning those who overdo the iodised table salt).

Now I know hydration and electrolyte balance is not to be conflated as the same thing, however, optimal electrolyte balance does help in staying hydrated, amongst other things like improving muscle contractions and relaxation, muscle fatigue and overall energy.

It’s basic and its boring but man-oh-man does it help during long and hard training sessions. I’ve been using this supplement for so long, it’s become a bit like brushing my teeth. During my standard training session, I add 4 scoops to plain water (the scoops are really small). 

Supplement Smart,
