THE THREE HORMONES THAT REGULATE YOUR ELECTROLYTE LEVELS HORMONES THAT REGULATE ELECTROLYTES

Hormones are key to understanding the hydration process, and what to do when that process breaks down. Every endurance athlete knows the blissful feeling of satisfaction that arrives after a long or hard workout. Equally, many of us have experienced the jittery, panicked state that results from consuming too much coffee on an empty stomach. When we have a big reward in our immediate future, we feel excitement; when we look at a difficult task, we feel dread. These feelings, which are a universal part of human physiology, are regulated by chemical compounds known as hormones. The simplest description of hormones is that of the “chemical messenger.” Various glands, including the thyroid, pancreas and pituitary gland, produce hormones, which travel through the bloodstream and prompt changes in other parts of the body.

SALTSTICK’S EXPERIENCE AT THE FOURTH-ANNUAL DYSAUTONOMIA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

SALTSTICK’S EXPERIENCE AT THE FOURTH-ANNUAL DYSAUTONOMIA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

This past weekend, we attended the Fourth Dysautonomia International Annual Conference in Washington D.C., where we met patients, families, friends and medical professionals who work to alleviate symptoms and conduct research toward discovering causes of dysautonomia. We were inspired by the patients and their families, who tirelessly told us about their experiences with the condition and how SaltStick has been able to help some of them through day-to-day life.

FUELING FOR EXERCISE WITH DYSAUTONOMIA

FUELING FOR EXERCISE WITH DYSAUTONOMIA

SaltStick has helped endurance athletes compete at the highest levels for years, by making it easy to replace the full spectrum of electrolytes lost through sweat. Additionally, the hydration benefits provided by SaltStick products can assist patients suffering from Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), who are pursuing exercise as part of their dysautonomia treatment. These patients, as you will see in this blog post, need to take extra steps to maintain hydration levels during workouts and daily life. Dysautonomia is a chronic medical condition that inhibits the autonomic nervous system from properly regulating changes in position, temperature, blood pressure or other responses to the environment. As a result, dysautonomia patients usually suffer from low blood pressure, lightheadedness, chronic fatigue and fainting. Have you signed up for the SaltStick Vitassium club?
