Instructions and Help about Can Form 8815 Amounts

Hey guys dr. Berg here now I want to do a video on the most important electrolyte now let me explain what electrolyte is if you ever take salt and put it in water and dissolve it it disassociates the sodium and chloride disconnect and they become two separate minerals okay and that fluid is very electrically conductive so basically electrolytes have to do with minerals that help conduct electricity in the body so they help with a lot of different things and so as far as electrolytes it would be like potassium sodium magnesium calcium chloride x' all those minerals okay now potassium out of all of the electrolytes is the one that we need in very large quantities and I was curious why is that why do we need the potassium in such large amounts I'm talking 4700 milligrams to 6,000 milligrams every single day that's equivalent to 7 to 10 plus cups of salad or vegetable every single day that's a lot that's odd to me and no one consumes that much but let's let's go dig further and exactly why we need potassium there's something in the body called the sodium potassium pump okay and it's built in a little protein connected to an enzyme it forms a whole enzyme on the surface of your cells and you have between 800,000 to 30 million of these little tiny pumps and their little generators that generate electricity to allow things to go through the cell so they take a lot of energy to to work in fact one third of all the food that you eat the energy of one third of your diet goes to running those pumps okay you also have another pump in the stomach called the hydrpotassium ATPase don't worry about the name...
