Electrolytes are minerals that carry an electrical charge and are essential for cell function. These minerals support hydration and improve energy production in the body. They are also essential when it comes to stimulating muscle contraction and neuro function. 

Most importantly, Creatine absorption and uptake are increased in the presence of electrolytes. Studies have found that creatine uptake can be decreased by over 50% when calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium were absent.
