What does the potassium in Re-Lyte Immunity do?

Potassium is an essential electrolyte that supports healthy nerve, muscle, and heart function.

Re-Lyte Immunity is made with our Re-Lyte Electrolyte Mix, which includes the essential electrolyte potassium. Potassium performs some pretty important jobs for your body. It supports nerve function, promotes muscle contraction, and helps you maintain a healthy heartbeat. Potassium also keeps all cells in your body functioning normally, including your immune cells.

Potassium 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 you’re potassium levels get too low, you could experience symptoms like muscle cramps, muscle weakness, abnormal heart rhythms, and kidney problems.

Some of the potassium in Re-Lyte Immunity occurs naturally in our unrefined, ancient sea salt Real Salt. But we also add a form of potassium called potassium citrate in Re-Lyte.

There are a few important benefits to potassium citrate over other forms of potassium. It’s one of the most easily absorbed forms of potassium, for example, and metabolizes quickly in the body.
