Electrolytes are excellent supplements to add to our diet to counteract deficiencies and replenish our body with electrolytes. Electrolytes are minerals found in the human body which are passed out with sweat and in urine. Exercise, stress and certain diets cause the body to lose a lot of it, which causes many imbalances:cramps, generalized fatigue, as well as a craving to eat a particular food. The deficient body is simply looking for the minerals it has lost. You can find electrolytes in food. The richest foods are leafy green vegetables, legumes and whole grains.
