Electrolytes truly are the “Spark of Life” as described in the book, "Electrolytes, the Spark of Life," by Gillian Martlew. While many of the known elements can be classified as Electrolytes, there are five elements recognized around the world as essential for maintaining a properly functioning electrical circuit within our body. They are:
These elements are necessary for:
- Nerve conduction
- Maintenance of cellular osmotic balance
- Preservation of proper acid-base (pH) balance throughout the body
The electrical system within our body encompasses our heart, brain, and nervous system. As such, it is absolutely essential that our cells be replete with these elements. Electrolytes carry electrical impulses from the brain to every part of the body to keep it in healthy balance.
There are numerous ways to become out of balance with these elements in everyday life:
- Electrolytes are lost predominately through sweating when doing strenuous exercise. If their loss is not compensated for relatively quickly, the ability to continue with the exercise can become difficult or impossible.Other activities that produce profuse sweating such as physical labor, yard work, or taking a sauna, create a need for Electrolyte replacement.
- We may also become deficient in these essential minerals when experiencing occasional emotional stress. Emotional stressors can come from worry, abuse, fear, and other factors, all of which require minerals to maintain our defenses.
- Not only do we lose or use up a lot of essential Electrolytes on a day-to-day basis as noted above, but those who take prescription medications such as diuretics are at increased risk of depleting Electrolytes.
- Excessive alcohol consumption rapidly depletes Electrolytes and imbalances our electrolyte equilibrium.

Obtaining the needed minerals via the food we eat is a chronic problem today. This is primarily due to our deficient soils and over processing and over cooking of our foods. Drinking ultra-purified water can also strip our body of these essential minerals. It is important to be aware of the fact that reverse osmosis and distilled water will actually act in reverse of what nature intended our water to do. Instead of being a mineral delivery system, the minerals are taken out of the water and this puts additional stress on the body tissue to compensate for the lack of minerals in the water. The minerals must then be taken from our healthy reserves in bone and muscle, thus leaving our system deficient and vulnerable. Replacement is essential!

I'm recovering from CFS/ME/Fibro/POTS and all the rest of that circus (yes it's possible to recover!) and part of my self-styled recovery plan is to "listen to my body" and only supplement with what it really needs. Eidon Electrolytes has become an integral part of my very pared down list of supplements – I add 15 drops to a glass of fresh green juice every morning.
I use this product with a Keto based eating approach. It has been instrumental in helping me maintain proper electrolyte balances and reduce any leg cramps.
Simple, easy to use. Just add the drops to my water each evening before bed. Thanks!
Excellent product, contains exactly as described and provides you with more information on the uses of electrolytes. This is my fourth bottle from the Eidon company. I appreciate the fact they do not overdo it on cheaper calcium carbonate. And it has a very neutral taste. Plus I did not like the extra Vit. C included in packaged drinks or the addition of sugar. This product contains no sugar.
This is a standard for me. I take It on a daily basis. No recurring bouts of dehydration. Strongly recommend this product.
Love this stuff. One vial in a bottle of water or juice is tasteless and gives me my electrolytes easily. Because it has salt in it, be wise. Put too much in your favorite drink and you will taste it.
I drink a lot of water, so I like to have electrolytes around. This is so much better than powders or tabs. I really notice a difference in the brightness of my eyes, my energy and digestion. It feels like my body truly gets hydrated and can flush everything out. There is no sugar, or excess synthetic vitamins, or too much sodium like other electrolyte formulations I have tried. This makes the water taste good - like mineral water straight from a spring. I would really recommend this. Good for when exercising etc. I normally only use it in one water bottle worth per day. Will order again
I came across this product because of severe leg cramps in the mornings... Terrible Charlie Horses that I would not wish on my neighbor with the rooster and barking dogs. I went to the doctor about my calves cramping and he recommended this product. When I drink water to stay hydrated, it comes through my water filter and into my glass, but without a single electrolyte. My filtered water, my medications and my general lifestyle (alcohol included) was stripping the electrolytes right out of me. After a couple of days of using this product I have not had any leg cramps since. I feel incredibly fortunate to be relieved of the suffering. Now I use it to make electrolyte water to carry with me. You just need a few drops and it is basically tasteless since there is no sugar or flavorings like in Gatorade or Pedialyte.
Absolutely must have the electrolytes when you purchase your minerals. I often sweat a lot at my job, and I always put this in my water to keep me going throughout the day.
