    What am I missing here?? How do people make money from electrolytes?? It's literally 2 or 3 cents worth of salts from the supermarket or health food shop.

    What foods are high in electrolytes?

    Excessive hydration and sweating is what causes low electrolyte levels in people.

    Basic electrolyte drink 2 litres of water add:

    Potassium Chloride Powder = 1 tsp
    Himalayan Pink Salt (or normal salt) = 1/2 tsp
    Baking Soda = 1 tsp
    Magnesium Sulphate= 1/2 tsp

    Total cost may be 5 cents. So who is making money on this?

    Yeah, the makers of Powerade and Gatorade etc and most Supp companies have some sort of electrolyte / hydration concoction, are not interested in making money???

    In think that in extreme situations electrolytes can be low.

    the Gators success was partly attributed to electrolyte replacement due to the extreme training conditions (heat and training time) back in the 70’s is was a common practice to not give players water during training as it was seen as weak.
    but someone at the Gators noticed what effect it was having.

    I remember tasting Gatorade when I was a kid it tasted like “sweat” modern Gatorade is very sweet, I wonder why?

    Itís sweet because it has to be palatable.

    Most people these days drink it for that reason. It tastes good.

    Coles online lists gatorade at $3.50 per bottle. At your local gym it would be more than that. If you go to a commercial gym, have a look and post the price.

    5c for the contents. Let's call it double that for argument's sake. No, 20c. OK?
    Bottle: 25c, mebbe 50c.

    So a markup from manufacturer to retail of $3, give or take. Multiply that by 100's of thousands. Not bad when you convince every douchebag that they need to drink sugar and colour with salt to be an "athlete".

    Don't start me on Nike.
