THE BEST ELECTROLYTES ON EARTH

THE BEST ELECTROLYTES ON EARTH

The electrolyte industry has a couple of dirty little secrets. The first secret is that word “natural” is not regulated by the FDA, so electrolyte brands can call their electrolytes “natural”, even if they are made exclusively with cheap, lab created minerals. While many electrolyte or mineral brands say they are “natural”, they simply use “natural flavors” for taste with lab created minerals. The only truly “natural” electrolytes are made with ionic sea minerals, like those found in Hi-Lyte.

The second is the myth is that all electrolytes are created equal. Ionic sea minerals are not only better because we can “feel good” that they are natural. They actually function differently in the body. These ionic sea minerals are better because nature has allowed them to remain in an unstable, ionic state so they can bond easily with water, maximizing the body’s ability to absorb them. To ensure you are truly giving your body the best, choose supplements that contain ionic minerals. If your electrolytes aren’t made with Ionic Sea Minerals, they are synthetic minerals made in a lab.

Thousands of years ago, eating fresh grains, fruits, and vegetables grown in nutrient-rich soil was our primary source for a full spectrum of ionic minerals. Your body is still looking for these minerals – including trace and ultra-trace minerals -- in your food, which can lead to food cravings, even when you’re otherwise nourished.

Experts estimate that 90 percent of Americans suffer from electrolyte or mineral imbalance and deficiency. Many of the trace and ultra-trace elements once abundant in soil have been washed into our oceans and seas through aggressive modern farming techniques. Naturally occurring, nutrient-rich soil is becoming increasingly rare.

Although trace minerals are no longer as plentiful in the foods you eat, they still exist in their proper proportions in the mineral-rich waters of the earth’s oceans and a few inland seas. This healthy, intricately balanced proportion of minerals and trace elements found in sea water -- such as the Great Salt Lakes in Utah where Hi-Lyte’s minerals are sourced -- is beneficial to the human body. Hi-Lyte is committed to helping people restore healthy electrolytes and trace minerals for a better, healthier life.

THE ANSWER FOR COMPLETE HYDRATION

THE ANSWER FOR
COMPLETE HYDRATION

Hydrating properly is one of the easiest ways to start living a healthier lifestyle today. Whether you are competing in a triathalon or shuttling kids between afterschool events, proper hydration can support increased nutrient absorption, energy and performance so you can live your life at your best. Staying well-hydrated can also help you to look and feel better by supporting healthy skin and hair, and aiding in digestion. For athletes, electrolytes are critical to performance, recovery and avoiding muscle cramps as well as lubricating key joints and tissues.

Electrolytes play a key role in maintaining fluid balance and supporting normal body function. Sodium and potassium help to retain fluid and prevent muscle cramping while magnesium and calcium aid in muscle contractions and movement. Without these restorative ingredients, dehydration can lead to muscle cramping, headaches, nausea, and fatigue.

The Institute of Medicine recommends the adult men and women drink approximately 3.4 and 2.7 liters per day respectively in order to maintain healthy body functions. But water alone is not enough. When drinking high quantities of filtered water, athletes can flush out critical electrolytes that are needed for working muscles and normal body function in a serious condition called Hyponatremia. Average sweat losses range from 1-1.5 liters per hour, depending on fitness level and environmental conditions. Since sodium is depleted most significantly by sweat, electrolyte replacements must have higher sodium values.
