What do electrolytes serve? They control osmosis between fluid compartments
They Help maintain acid- base ph
Electrolytes carry electrical currents which allow physiological functions including conducting nerve impulses.

So, I wanted to take a second and connect folk a lit bit to their kidneys and how they help us.
