Dehydration in the Workplace: Why Replace Electrolytes?
In heat stress environments, the body reacts by perspiring. When this occurs, much more is lost than water; magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium are also sacrificed.
These minerals, or “electrolytes” are crucial to the human body in maintaining healthy muscles and a productive level of energy.
When too much fluid and too many electrolytes are lost, the body becomes dehydrated. As a result, the stage is set for heat stress or more serious injury or accident.
It is possible for water alone to replace lost fluid, but water cannot replace electrolytes to a level sufficient enough to prevent heat stress. Water is considered to be even less effective when used by workers or individuals with poor nutritional habits or health problems.
