Hummingbird Nectar

Would anyone have information on the electrolyte concentrations of nectar? Since nectar is a natural product it must have some potassium and sodium in it. By not providing these in the feeder solution expecially for over wintering hummingbirds I would think they would become deficient in these vital electrolytes.
