This report will shed light on challenges, solutions, recent technology advancements, patents & research in the area of Healthy Electrolyte & Antioxidant Beverages.
The minerals that conduct an electrical charge when mixed with water are termed electrolytes. These help in regulating a variety of the body’s essential functions. Electrolytes aids in nerve signaling, pH balance, muscle contraction, and hydration.
Electrolyte beverages contain a converted ionized substance, which has been dissolved in water. Its main aim is to help people in replacing normal water with electrolyte-containing water. It enhances the nutritional value so as to meet the nutrient deficiency that has occurred due to dehydration during rigorous activities or in general.
Antioxidant beverages are drinks that help in neutralizing harmful compounds known as free radicals. These beverages prevent oxidative damage to the cells, reduce inflammation and give protection against chronic diseases.
Challenges Associated with Conventional Beverages
Conventional beverages have some short-comings which needs to be catered. Some of the challenges and short-comings are as follows:
- Need for high volume consumption
- Delayed absorption
- Lesser Energy
- Environmental Impact
- Low sodium bioavailability
- Poor taste
