What is an electrolyte?
- Tom (age 14)
In general an electrolyte is a non metal which carries current by
the movement of ions. These are very important because electrolytes are
what carry signals through our neurons. It is the motion of Potassium
and Sodium ions that transmits signals to and from your brain.
Thanks for the question,
