The summer heat is upon us (especially here in Scottsdale, Arizona -- it's already in the 100s) and proper hydration is more crucial than ever.
Believe it or not, merely increasing your water intake is not enough...
In fact, too much water can cause serious electrolyte imbalances (it's called hyponatremia) and can cause headaches, nausea, low energy and more (1).*
Unfortunately, one of the main problems is that drinking water has been stripped of important electrolytes and minerals during the filtration process.
Electrolytes are charged particles that live within your bodily fluids that send electrical impulses to allow proper functioning of your heart, muscles, and nerves (2).*
Here are 5 signs you might have an electrolyte imbalance:
- You have low energy.
- You're always thirsty.
- Your muscles ache, spasm, or twitch.
- You get frequent headaches.
- Your joints hurt.
Improper hydration and electrolyte imbalances add unnecessary stress to vital organs like your heart and kidneys (1).*
That’s why we formulated Jigsaw Electrolyte Supreme™ that provides a broad spectrum of electrolytes, minerals, and vitamins in each serving to replenish and rehydrate your body.*
Jigsaw Electrolyte Supreme comes in two delicious flavors, Lemon-Lime and Berry-Licious, and contains ZERO SUGAR so you can enjoy guilt-free. :)
