Is there any official advice about taking supplements?

People take supplements for all kinds of reasons, usually relating to their health. They hope these will boost vitality, limit the signs of ageing, extend life, cut the risk of chronic disease such as cancer and treat specific ailments such as arthritis. According to research by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) in 2008, nearly a third of people in the UK take some vitamin, mineral or dietary supplement on most days, and about 15% of us report having taken a “high dose” supplement in the last 12 months. The main reason we take supplements is for our general health and wellbeing. In short, there is no easy answer to the question of whether we should be taking supplements, but what is clear is the need for people to know what they are taking, to know whether it is likely to help and to know whether it is likely to harm.

What are electrolytes?

Electrolyte is a "medical/scientific" term for salts, specifically ions. The term electrolyte means that the ion is electrically-charged, either positive or negative. Electrolytes are important because they are what cells (especially nerve, heart, muscle) use to maintain voltages across their cell membranes and to carry electrical impulses (nerve impulses, muscle contractions) across themselves and to other cells. Kidneys work to keep the electrolyte concentrations in blood constant despite other changes in your body. Electrolyte balance in body cells is maintained by movement of electrolytes through ion channels specialised for particular ions such as sodium or potassium. An interesting fact is that ion channels do not directly recognise their appropriate ion. Instead the channels recognise the pattern of water molecules surrounding the ion, and open to allow the ion and water to pass.

Can’t I achieve the same effect by drinking electrolyte drinks?

The body needs electrolytes which it obtains from a normal diet. Electrolyte drinks are refreshing and may supply some needed electrolyte input. However, they will usually provide an excess that is flushed out of the body through the kidneys.

Will drinking sports drinks do just as well?

No. The problem is not taking more electrolytes on board but managing those we already have. In modern society, most people will have abundant supplies of electrolytes from their normal diet and, if they drink more, the kidneys will just flush them away. Plus, to make these drinks palatable, the manufacturers often load them with sugar which may work against your exercise objectives.

What are ions?

An ion is an atom or molecule in which the total number of electrons is not equal to the total number of protons, giving the atom a net positive or negative electrical charge. Ions can be created by both chemical and physical means. In chemical terms, if a neutral atom loses one or more electrons, it has a net positive charge and is known as a cation. If an atom gains electrons, it has a net negative charge and is known as an anion. An ion consisting of a single atom is an atomic or monatomic ion; if it consists of two or more atoms, it is a molecular or polyatomic ion. Millions of ions per second are needed by muscles and for most functions of the body. Good health depends on properly balanced electrical signalling and chemical interactions.
