Caring for the health and wellbeing of your employees is important and one way to do that is to offer them hydrating, electrolyte-rich drinks.
Electrolytes come in a variety of forms including chlorine, potassium, phosphate, magnesium, calcium, and sodium. They have a number of functions which include1:
1. Regulation of nerve and muscle function
3. Balances acidity in your blood
4. Balances blood pressure
5. Helps to rebuild damaged tissue
We all need electrolytes to function in a healthy way. After exercise and physical exertion, it’s important to replenish the electrolyte levels that were lost while sweating. An imbalance of these levels can result in confusion, lethargy, moodiness, and even more harmful symptoms.1 Individuals who prioritize exercise will often optimize their time by working out in the morning before work or even during their lunch breaks and providing drinks that help to replenish their electrolyte levels is a great way to care for the health and wellbeing of your employees. Not to mention the fact that it will help foster greater productivity in the workday.
There are a myriad of ways to provide these hydrating drink options such as Gatorade and Powerade, and at Dependable Break Room Solutions we believe that starts in the workplace. We have a variety of options including vending machines, micro-markets, and pantry service, which can all be customized to include the items your employees not only want, but also need. With cutting-edge technology and a business model that prioritizes the needs of our business partners, we would love to also partner with you to promote health and wellness for your employees.
