Calcium helps support bone, muscle, nerve, and immune health.
Re-Lyte Immunity is made with our Re-Lyte Electrolyte Mix, which includes the essential electrolyte calcium. Calcium performs some pretty important jobs for your body. It helps remineralize your bones, supports the contraction of muscles, participates in the transmission of nerve impulses, aids in blood clotting, and even plays a role in immune function.
Research shows that calcium signals help regulate the creation of two important immune cells. These immune cells are responsible for initiating the attack on invading organisms that enter the body and stopping the attack when the threat diminishes. This helps keep the immune system in balance and prevents an overactive, potentially-damaging immune response.
Calcium is one of several electrolytes you lose in your sweat, so it’s important to replenish it regularly if you’re active. If you don’t and your levels get low, you could experience symptoms like dry skin, brittle nails, and coarse hair, muscle cramping, fatigue, and irritability.
Some of the calcium in Re-Lyte Immunity occurs naturally in our unrefined, ancient sea salt Real Salt. But we also add a form of calcium called calcium lactate.
There are a few important benefits to calcium lactate over other forms of calcium. It doesn’t contain lactose, so it’s safe for people who are lactose intolerant. It’s also less likely to cause constipation than other popular forms of calcium, like calcium carbonate.
