What do you have in your pocket, purse, gym bag? Most people carry their water bottle or a post workout snack, but are we forgetting something even more important, something critical for our health?
THE AVERAGE ADULT LOSES 2-3 LITERS OF WATER PER DAY.
While engaging in activity, whether it be vigorous exercise or our busy daily routine, we are constantly losing fluids. Most people sweat out about 2 cups of water per day, and the simple act of breathing results in a loss of more than 1 cup of water through exhalation. We eliminate OVER 6 CUPS of water per day total, and losing JUST 2% of your body weight in dehydration can result in decreased aerobic performance.
DRINKING WATER IS NOT ENOUGH!
Even more importantly, in those fluids we are losing positively and negatively charged ions that conduct electrical activity throughout the body. We know of these important ions as “ELECTROLYTES”, which include Sodium, Chloride, Potassium, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Calcium. Electrolytes are like oil in our car engine...they do not fuel the engine, but are ABSOLUTELY necessary to keep everything running smoothly.
WATER FOLLOWS THE MOVEMENT OF ELECTROLYTES.
In order for our muscles to contract, nerves to transmit signals and the heart to beat properly, electrolytes MUST be maintained in proper balance. Without replenishment of electrolytes, the body cannot maintain proper fluid balance and hydration levels. This can lead to less effective workouts, muscle cramping, arrhythmias, edema, and fatigue.
However, there is MORE to the hydration and electrolyte discussion than meets the eye. There is an ENTIRE periodic table of elements, beyond the main electrolytes, that in SPECIFIC proportions, ensure optimization of biochemical processes.
THE MAGIC OF THE PRIMORDIAL OCEAN MINERALS
Nature has provided a solution from the depths of the ocean, from specific plankton blooms 30 feet below sea level. Here there exists a complex interaction between all known minerals, trace elements, organic nutrients, microbes, RNA, DNA, phytoplankton and zooplankton. The scientist Rene Quinton harvested RAW seawater from areas exhibiting complex biochemical and ENERGETIC properties distinct from the surrounding ocean, and it became known as QUINTON marine plasma.
Quinton far surpasses any electrolyte or mineral product on the market today, nourishing the extracellular environment with the inherent knowledge and ancient biological imprint of the primordial ocean. This knowledge, a specific proportional relationship between the periodic elements, fueled life on earth as we know it.
