    What is Sqwincher and What are Electrolytes?

    By: Pryme AustraliaDate: 2017-11-20Tags: Sqwincher

    Whether you are working or doing sports, if you sweat you lose essential nutrients. Especially when undergoing strenuous activity, you are more likely to lose more nutrients and eventually get dehydrated. Our bodies need more than water alone to avoid dehydration. We need to replace all the essential nutrients we lose through sweat and urinating, known as electrolytes.

    What are Electrolytes?

    Electrolytes are nutrients that replaces essential nutrients we lose through sweating and urinating. Blood pressure, fluid balance and muscle contractions are some of the key functions that electrolytes help regulate in our bodies. Having an adequate supply of electrolytes, will combat dehydration and allows for effective hydration.

    Effects of Electrolyte Imbalance

    • If electrolytes lost through perspiration are not replaced, effects of electrolyte imbalance may occur.
    • When perspiring, if a person’s sodium levels drop too low, effects of muscle weakness, cramping and dizziness may occur.
    • Similarly, if a person’s potassium levels drop too low effects of confusion, muscle weakness and paralysis may occur.
    • If sodium is not replaced, and blood concentrations of sodium fall below a critical maximum – hyponatremia may set in, which could cause swelling of the brain, seizure and death, without treatment.

    What is Sqwincher?

    Sqwincher is an electrolyte enhanced drink for effective hydration and considered Australia’s and America’s leading electrolyte enhanced beverage used by the industrial workforce. Sqwincher contains an optimal balance of necessary electrolytes (lower sodium, higher potassium) and carbohydrates which consumers prefer. Along with competitive pricing, Sqwincher offer more efficient packaging and dispensing programs than any of their competitors. Having an adequate supply of electrolytes or electrolyte replacement drinks, such as Sqwincher is crucial to combat dehydration. All companies in the safety industry need to consider electrolyte replacement drinks for their hydration programs to properly hydrate their workers.
