Athletes and those who do marathons, triathlons and other moderate or extreme fitness activities work out so much that replenishing depleted electrolytes is a challenge. You could start experiencing some of the symptoms of low blood pressure – fatigue, weakness, dizziness, circulation problems such as cold hands and/or feet and even depression.
Low blood pressure is considered to be 90/60 although recent research indicates that systolic (top number) blood pressure under 110 can be problematic. Also, since height impacts blood pressure, 90/60 may be much too low for someone over 5 ft tall.
Because low blood pressure slows down the cardiovascular system, some athletes find the only time they really feel good is when they exercise - when blood pressure and heart rate are temporarily raised. If that describes you, a daily routine of hydrating and restoring electrolytes could help you avoid chronic low blood pressure and gain a more consistent level of energy as well as quicker recovery time. Lyte Balance electrolyte concentrate is formulated for daily use to build deep hydration and electrolyte balance.
Healthy blood pressure is neither high or low. The effects of chronic low blood pressure tend to be overlooked or ignored. Replenishing electrolytes may be an important step in regaining consistent, optimal performance.
*There are other biochemical changes created by exercise that also help lower blood pressure but our focus is the role of electrolytes and how to replenish these important nutrients.
