Avoiding artificial ingredients might mean a little extra mixing
Salt and citric acid are both hygroscopic, which is scientific-sounding word that means they attract water from the air. If you live in a humid climate you might notice your jar of Re-Lyte Electrolyte Mix flows less freely over time, and no matter where you live, when you add Re-Lyte powder to your water bottle you may notice small white clumps floating to the top.
No Additives, No Junk, Still Effective
To avoid clumping, most companies add chemical anti-caking agents to their formula. Redmond wants to keep things as simple and clean as possible, so we keep things chemical-free.
Clumping in the jar doesn't make Re-Lyte Electrolyte Mix less effective. Once it hits your water bottle, here are some tips to help Re-Lyte Electrolyte Mix dissolve more easily.
Use a bottle with a lid. You'll want to mix your electrolytes like James Bond. (Shaken, not stirred.) Some of us like to use bottles from our neighbors here in Utah, Blender Bottle, to prepare Re-Lyte Electrolyte Mix.
Add a few ice cubes. If you can, shake Re-Lyte up with some ice in the bottle. The hard ice will help break up any clumps, and cold Re-Lyte is so tasty.
Three deep breaths. This tip comes to us from a mindfulness practitioner. Make time for three deep breaths while you're shaking your Re-Lyte bottle – in through your nose, out through your mouth. In just a few seconds you'll have your refreshing electrolytes ready, without any artificial chemicals, and you might be surprised how much those three breaths can improve your day!
