Even after a normal '9-5' working day in the office you still need to recover. ViDrate comes with added vitamins & contains no artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners (sweetened naturally with Stevia) & is suitable for vegans & vegetarians and is gluten free!

Both muscle tissue and neurons are considered electric tissues of the body. Muscles and neurons are activated by electrolyte activity between the extracellular fluid or interstitial fluid, and intracellular fluid. Electrolytes may enter or leave the cell membrane through specialised protein structures embedded in the plasma membrane called "ion channels". For example, muscle contraction is dependent upon the presence of calcium (Ca2+), sodium (Na+), and potassium (K+). Without sufficient levels of these key electrolytes, muscle weakness or severe muscle contractions may occur.

Electrolyte balance is maintained by oral, or in emergencies, intravenous (IV) intake of electrolyte-containing substances, and is regulated by hormones, in general with the kidneys flushing out excess levels. In humans, electrolyte homeostasis is regulated by hormones such as antidiuretic hormones, aldosterone and parathyroid hormones. Serious electrolyte disturbances, such as dehydration and over hydration, may lead to cardiac and neurological complications and, unless they are rapidly resolved, will result in a medical emergency.

You can drink TOO MUCH water alone (this can dilute and ‘flush out’ electrolytes). NOT ENOUGH water (dehydration) has a similar effect (flushing out the electrolytes).

“In addition to keeping fluid levels in your body balanced, electrolytes create electrical impulses that enable cells to send messages back and forth between themselves, so you can think, see, move, and perform all the bioelectrical functions that you take for granted.”
