Why is there chloride in Re-Lyte products?

Chloride keeps cells hydrated and helps maintain healthy blood volume and blood pressure levels.

All Re-Lyte products contain the essential electrolyte chloride, which performs some pretty important jobs for your body. Just like sodium, it helps keep the amount of water inside and outside your cells balanced. It also helps keep blood volume and blood pressure in line. And it keeps the pH of your body fluids healthy.

After sodium, chloride is the next electrolyte you lose most in your sweat, so it’s important to replenish it regularly if you’re active. If you don’t, you could experience symptoms like weakness, fatigue, difficulty breathing, diarrhea, or vomiting. 

Almost all of the chloride in Re-Lyte products comes from our unrefined, ancient sea salt Real Salt (a little comes from coconut water powder too). We may be a little (or a lot) biased, but we think Redmond Real Salt is the healthiest source of chloride around. It's pure and unprocessed. It's mined in Utah. And it contains 60+ healthy trace minerals that can support your hydration and overall wellness.
