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 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.
I use it for my athletes post weigh- in for competitions to replenish their hydration. I just mix it with some sort of flavored drink and just add in a few tbsp of Eidon Electrolytes. Great results!
Fantastic, I get terrible leg cramps and a half dropper full in a couple ounces of water once a day and I rarely if ever get them any more and if I do they are not nearly as painful!
We do not use this one as often as the Immune Support drops, but I like to have it on hand in case the children become ill etc. It is much better to give them these drops in some juice (or juice and coconut water) than to give them electrolytes from a chemist!
Have used for a long time at the suggestion of my doc. It really does work. No more leg cramps.
I prefer this method of getting electrolytes since I can mix it with whatever I like. I later purchased a larger size.
I really like this product... it works and is easy and almost tasteless I prefer it to the powders with fake flavorings.
Since I have trouble with all the fillers/preservatives in supplements, I wanted a product that did not have any fillers/preservatives in it. I am so pleased that the only added ingredient added is ionized water. And, because they are liquid, I am able to absorb them better than the other products on the market. I have been mineral deficient for many years and I can feel the difference shortly after taking the drops. I also purchased potassium iodide and, again, they are the best I have found for my situation. Thank you
