Why is there sodium in Re-Lyte Products?

Sodium keeps your cells properly hydrated and supports healthy nerve and muscle function.

All Re-Lyte products contain the essential electrolyte sodium, which performs some pretty important jobs for your body. It helps keep the amount of water inside and outside your cells balanced. It also supports healthy nerve and muscle function.

Sodium is the 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 headaches, muscle cramping, nausea, diarrhea, and confusion. Extremely low sodium levels could even trigger serious things like coma and death.

Almost all of the sodium 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 sodium 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.
