Is drinking water with electrolytes better? ?!

Question: Is drinking water with electrolytes better!? !?
Unless you are partaking in seriously strenuous workouts (marathons, heavy training for athletics, outside where the sun is beating down on you, etc) where your body could be depleted of electrolytes, plain water not only rehydrates you, it's also a lot cheaper!. Most people who go to the gym or jog for recreation do not need electrolyte replacement, and unfortunately most of the research has been conducted on athletes who train multiple hours a day!.

Most electrolyte containing beverages also contain quite a bit of sugar, so if you're working out to lose weight or burn calories, replacing them with a big dose of Gatorade or Power-Ade afterward is counter productive!. If you're worried about replacing electrolytes, try a 50/50 mix of water and a electrolyte beverage!.

The vitamins you're getting in Smart Water are minimal and the product is way overpriced!. If you're drinking it because you like it - go right ahead - but if you're choosing Smart Water because you think it will give you some sort of extra benefit, take a multi-vitamin every morning with a glass of water and save your money for something else!.

Oh, and the electrolytes in those beverages is usually salt (potassium chloride or sodium chloride)!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

No,i don't think so!.!.!.If you try to drink it with electrolytes your PH in the mouth will rise which will lead it to cross the limit of 200!.5 in your mouth!.It will also make it more vulnerable to all kinds of diseases like gonorrhea or oral stench(extremely high)and also it will start to heat ,which will eventually lead it to boiling!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

even the excess of electrolyte anything more than the essential requirments of the body would produce harmful effects and medicines shouldnt be used randomly until advised to do soWww@FoodAQ@Com
