The answer to the question (according to Aquafina) is:
Electrolytes are salts/minerals that help your body process water more efficiently; they are vital for muscle function. For example, muscle contraction is dependent upon the presence of calcium (Ca2+), sodium (Na+), and potassium (K+). Without sufficient levels of these key electrolytes, muscle weakness or severe muscle contractions may occur. To give you an idea about best sources for these minerals: Gatorade contains a functional electrolyte level at over 900 ppm. “Electrolyte-enhanced” Smart Water has far below functional levels at 24.7ppm.
