    Electrolytes regulate the muscle and nerve function in our body. They also keep our body hydrated and the level of blood pH and blood pressure in control. Electrolytes are also critical for rebuilding the damaged tissues in our body. Abnormal levels of electrolytes can either lead to weak muscles or let muscles contract severely which can affect our overall health. Kidneys help in keeping the electrolyte levels constant in our blood to ensure normal functioning of our body.
