Bikram Balance is a plant-based superfood that adds a huge amount of natural real food electrolytes and alkalinity to the reserves of the body. Barley grass, chlorella, spirulina, vegetables such as carrot, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, parsley and kale along with fruits like blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, plum, pear and many others flood our bodies with chlorophyll, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and oxygen. Healthy alkaline cells thrive on alkaline electrolyte, oxygen-rich, plant-based nutrients. When you drink a plant-based supplement like Bikram Balance, you assist the body in maintaining an electrolyte balanced, alkaline aerobic environment. The more oxygen you get in your food, the more health you'll experience. Bikram Balance, made from 49 different superfood fruits and vegetables is the most alkaline, oxygen-rich electrolyte replacement supplement you can drink.
Electrolyte & Acid/Alkaline Balance
Bikram Yoga is an established series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises that is ideally practiced in a room heated to 105°F for 90 minutes. Blood circulation is affected immensely during Bikram Yoga because of two processes called extension and compression. These two dynamics work together to deliver fresh blood to every joint, muscle, and organ within the body. Bikram Yoga is an excellent way to cleanse and detoxify the body while getting fit. Many of the postures massage the lymphatic system and aid in lymphatic drainage, assisting to eliminate toxins and acid wastes while helping to alkalize the blood's pH as well as improve organ functioning and immune system stimulation. However, because of the heat and amount of sweating you do, you definitely need to make sure you are replenishing electrolytes and alkaline minerals such as sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium among others.
Maintain Electrolyte Balance
Electrolytes are electrically charged alkaline minerals. Most people know it's important to replace them in the body during and after exercise, especially for high-intensity workouts like Bikram Yoga, however, many don't really understand what electrolytes are or how to replenish them. In fact, the balance of electrolytes in the body is critical for optimum function of all of our cells, tissues, and organs. The top electrolytes found in the highest concentration in the body are sodium, potassium, and chloride followed by other key ones such as calcium, magnesium, phosphate, and bicarbonate, all of which are found in fruits and vegetables. The body uses electrolytes to help with nerve and muscle function. Both of these functions are obviously essential for any type of exercise, especially a session of Bikram Yoga. Electrolytes are found in the blood, urine, and other bodily fluids. They help to regulate the acid-alkaline balance as well as fluid balance in the body.
Electrolytes Are "Lost" While Exercising
The body loses electrolytes during exercise primarily through sweating which can also lead to an acid/alkaline imbalance in other fluids of the body. When electrolytes are low in your body, muscle and nerve function may be impaired, and you might start to feel dizzy or nauseous. In mild cases of electrolyte loss, you may not feel any symptoms at all, but the imbalance will still affect your performance and recovery. You may think you over trained or didn't get enough rest, but the low level of electrolytes may cause a much slower post yoga session recovery.
Acid/ Alkaline Imbalance
The acid/alkaline balance relates to the chemistry of the body's fluids as measured by pH. The cells of the body must have a slightly alkaline environment to survive. With a blood pH of 7.365 the cells are in a state of wellness which enables them to receive nourishment and release waste with ease. But when you suffer from electrolyte imbalance it may trigger an acid/alkaline imbalance in your cells that may cause your inner environment to become toxic. The primary food group that provides an alkalizing affect is fruits and vegetables.
