Maintain Electrolyte Balance

Drinking plenty of water is the most common way to maintain electrolyte balance in the body. It helps to rehydrate our body, and alternatively, coconut water is also used for maintaining electrolyte balance in the body. The kidney helps maintain electrolyte balance by filtering electrolytes and water from the blood and returns some of them into blood, and others are excreted through the urine.
