Sports Electrolyte Fix is an intense electrolyte liquid, sourced from the Great Salt Lake, Utah in the USA.

Electrolytes are mineral salts dissolved in the body’s blood and fluid, they carry an electric charge and therefore can affect the blood’s pH and muscle function. Mineral salts include sodium, chloride, magnesium and potassium and these are involved in balancing the fluid throughout the body including the volume of fluid within the blood.

Water movement is controlled by the concentration of electrolytes on either side of the cell membrane.Exercise increases fluid loss through sweat. If this fluid is not replaced then dehydration will occur. Dehydration impairs performance as blood volume decreases and body temperature increases; extra strain will be put on the heart and lungs. The loss of fluid will also lead to an electrolyte imbalance as sodium and potassium are lost through the skin. This imbalance can cause a disruption to the cell’s ability to carry electrical charges.

Viridian’s Sports Electrolyte fix contains all the necessary electrolytes in an ionic form as well as all other minerals naturally present in seawater. Ionic refers to the mineral being ionically charged (attached to a negatively charged mineral complex). It is important that the electrolytes are present in an ionic form as this is necessary for effective hydration. In a study looking into the importance of electrolytes for rehydration, eight participants consumed plain water, and eight participants consumed water plus an electrolyte additive.

The addition of an electrolyte mixture to plain water decreased the overall fluid levels required for optimal hydration compared to the plain water group. Supplementing water with electrolytes can therefore minimise carrying excessive weight, possibly reducing fatigue during extended exercise.

We believe supplements and all wellbeing products should use high quality, effective ingredients.  All the products and brands we choose to sell meet our personal standard for quality and contain naturopathic and, where possible, organic ingredients.

The majority of our products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, however we do stock high quality, sustainable fish oils, which means our full range is not vegetarian.  We clearly identify these in the product listings.

We stock cruelty-free brands whose products and ingredients are never tested on animals.

  

Choosing Quality Supplements

We always look for high bioavailability, which is a good indicator of the quality and how well a product is absorbed.  The higher the bioavailability, the more of your chosen supplement will be absorbed by your body.

All too often we see cheap supplements, which although they may have the required dosage of the active ingredients, they may have a low bioavailability due to being more refined or combined with poor quality additional ingredients to form tablets, or even make them appear more appetising.

Additional ingredients in cheaper supplements are often unnecessary or impact the absorption of the supplement you take, so it is important not only to check the dosage of your chosen active ingredients, but also ensure any other ingredients are good for you, too.   It is the additional ingredients that can often contain allergens or make a product non-vegan, for example.
