2 Key Minerals You Lose After Working Out and How to Replenish the Body

This might come as a huge shock, but your body loses a lot more than just weight and calories during a regular workout.

Many fitness publications emphasize the importance of a post-workout meal because your body is put under a lot of stress. It needs to be nourished with the right foods in order to speed up your recovery. Moreover, post-workout meals can help you feel fresh and ready to work out the following day. This is true – especially if you want to prevent injuries and improve your overall health.

It’s important to know what happens to your body in order to raise awareness about your own anatomy. Moreover, it guides you to make smarter food choices so that you fill your body with the right nutrients.

Read on to learn more!


1. Protein

First, your body loses protein – one of the most important minerals. After burning all the carbohydrates in your system, your body starts to draw fuel and energy from your fat and protein. While you may end up burning unhealthy fat, you also start to lose the beneficial protein minerals which keep your body strong and protect you from the cold.

Without refuelling the protein in your body, you could face difficulties when it comes to muscle building. Furthermore, you could even increase your risks of injury and chronic pain as you age.


2. Electrolytes

Ever wondered why 100-Plus is a favourite amongst athletes? That’s because it’s loaded with electrolytes.

Besides protein, your body also loses electrolytes through perspiration. When you sweat, you end up losing a lot of water and other minerals like sodium, chloride and potassium. A depletion in electrolytes could cause you to feel light-headed and dizzy after a workout.

Inadequate electrolytes are a known cause of electrolyte imbalance that could result in heart issues and low blood sugar.
