Why is there potassium in Re-Lyte products?

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

We include potassium in our Re-Lyte products because it's an essential electrolyte that performs some pretty important jobs for your body. It supports nerve function, promotes muscle contraction, and helps you maintain a healthy heartbeat.

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 occurs naturally in our unrefined, ancient sea salt Real Salt. But we also add a form of potassium called potassium citrate.

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. The potassium citrate we currently use in our Re-Lyte products is sourced internationally and is made following Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMPs) guidelines that ensure its identity, strength, quality, and purity.
