I don't know about you, but I love working up a sweat - the sweatier, the better! It's a great way to naturally my body of the nasty toxins - even cholesterol - that build up every day. But along with the bad stuff, I'm also losing the good stuff, the electrolytes. Electrolytes are the essential nutrients that our body needs for optimum function of our cells and organs; they create the electrical charges needed to regulate normal heart beats, muscular contractions, and overall healthy nerve function.

After a long match or intense workout, it's very important that you replenish these electrolytes, and while fortified beverages are an excellent choice, you might not always have them on hand. But the good thing is that you probably DO have some of these snacks in your refrigerator and pantry which are also rich in the top four essential electrolytes: sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium chloride.

So the next time you get your sweat on, be sure to mix it up and munch on any of the following:

Sodium Potassium Calcium Magnesium Chloride
