    Vitalyte Electrolyte Drink Mix is Packed with Essential Electrolytes Your Body Needs for Optimal Hydration

    You know that feeling: a dull headache, your mouth feels like the Sahara Desert and even the thought of tequila makes you want to grab the nearest garbage can. Oh the lovely hangover! You've officially sworn it off multiple times! But somehow when your favorite team is winning and you're having a good time with friends, your memory of the "day after effect" isn't as sharp as it should be. So now the damage is done, your Sunday productivity is diminished to laying in a dark room and your only chance for recovery is ordering a pizza and taking a few aspirin. Well once you order that thin crust with extra cheese, turn off your phone and let us give you some pointers. At Vitalyte we know a thing or two about enjoying a Saturday night without letting Sunday morning be too much of a drag. First and foremost it's important to consume water with every alcohol drink you have. Ideally try to have 8-10 ounces of water after each glass of wine, beer or cocktail. Second, drink an electrolyte replacement drink mix before you go out and when you come home so you can help stave off alcohol induced dehydration. Finally when you get up the next morning, drink an additional 8-10 ounces of electrolyte formula. Vitalyte is the ideal way to make sure that the dehydrating effects of your favorite red or IPA don't linger too long. Packed with all the essential electrolytes your body needs for optimal hydration and free from anything artificial, our electrolyte drink mix for hangovers is a great way to make sure your Sunday isn't just about pepperoni and pulling the blinds down!

  • Looking for an Electrolyte Drink Mix with Non-GMO Ingredients

    electrolyte drink mix

    Today's modern athletes have all the latest and greatest resources available to them to ensure they are making the most out of their natural ability. From precise golf swing analysis to discovering the benefits of altitude training for runners, science is helping athletes throw farther, jump higher and run faster. The science of hydration though, hasn't changed much over the years. We know, as we have for many decades, that even a slight amount of dehydration can significantly impact performance. And we know water alone is not enough to properly hydrate the body during activity. An athlete needs a constant supply of electrolytes during activity to help stay adequately hydrated and stave off fatigue. While sports beverages were developed to help athletes combat dehydration, many contain high amounts of sugar and sodium and are made with artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. A high performing body can't be at its best if it isn't getting the best fuel. That's why at Vitalyte we make our electrolyte drink mix with non-GMO ingredients and we use only natural ingredients as a sweetener. Plus our formula is free from anything artificial and is low in sodium. So while science should take center stage in creating football helmets that are more protective and turf that is more shock absorbing, we think nature should play a big role when it comes to the modern athlete's electrolyte drink.

  • An Electrolyte Replacement Drink Formulated for Your Life

    electrolyte replacement drink science

    Whether you're an athlete, weekend warrior, outdoor enthusiast, sick, traveling or just plain tired, combating dehydration is important to you! Enter Vitalyte electrolyte replacement. Rapid and effective, Vitalyte is the perfect balance of electrolytes that delivers one promise, hydrate thirsty bodies with exactly what they need and nothing they don't! No artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. Just an electrolyte replacement drink formulated for your life and anything it throws your way.

    Our Science:

    Sleep, eat, hydrate. Hydration ranks up there with life's most important activists. Because the brain is the most sensitive organ in the body and is comprised largely of water, it's the first to experience the side effects of dehydration. Even at just 1% loss of fluids, our mental focus can be comprised! The second most common side effect of slight dehydration is irritability. So this explains why after your third cup of coffee at the office you find your concentration levels slipping and your tolerance for your cubical neighbor waning. Finally you "feel thirsty" and head to the water cooler for a much needed break. This is a sign that you have lost approximately 3% of your optimal fluid level. Yes, our thirst reflex doesn't usually kick in until our body experiences a 3% loss of liquid. And any way we slice or dice it, coffee, caffeinated beverages or alcohol don't account for "fluid." They may be liquid but are not the type of liquids that a body needs for optimal hydration. In fact, our favorite roast or spirit actually dehydrate our bodies.

    So what is the answer to this liquid conundrum? Electrolytes! And not just any pinch of sodium and dash of potassium will do. In order for the body to be properly hydrated it must have the proper ratio of electrolytes available. That's where Vitalyte comes in. For over forty years we have been committed to providing thirsty bodies world-wide with an isotonic sports beverage that works quickly and effectively. Isotonic means that a fluid can be absorbed directly from the stomach into the blood stream, by passing the need for digestion. High sugar, high sodium sports beverages require digestion. But because Vitalyte is made with mostly glucose (a sugar that doesn't require digestion) and low levels of sodium, our solution gets to work quickly to do what you need it to do, hydrate! In fact Vitalyte is so fast-acting it is absorbed within minutes. That's why search and rescue teams in the Grand Canyon have used it to help treat dehydration.

    Rapid, effective and free from any artificial ingredients, Vitalyte is committed to addressing your hydration needs with science and concern. So when you want to run that extra lap, bench those additional reps or stay late at the office answering emails, we will be there for you. Stay healthy, stay happy, stay hydrated and drink Vitalyte.

  • The History Behind That Great Electrolyte Replacement Drink Mix

    vitalyte electrolyte replacement history

    The History Behind Vitalyte Electrolyte Replacement Drink

    With all the fabulous advancements in genetic testing it's so easy now to find out "where you came from." So at Vitalyte, we thought our consumers might be a little curious about "where we came from." Here's a little about our history and who is behind that great electrolyte drink you mix up for every tennis match.

    Our founder is a man named Bill Gookin. A biochemist by trade and runner by heart, Bill created our electrolyte formula to meet his hydration needs. He made, what he felt, was the ideal drink! His formula had all the essential electrolytes in the exact ratio that the body wanted. Bill started small, running his company out of his garage, and eventually grew as more and more people tried and loved his "Gookinaid." As the business evolved Bill realized it was time for a new name. He felt that his formula was "vital" for optimal hydration and it was an "electrolyte" drink mix, hence the name "Vitalyte."

    Those of us who work at Vitalyte are sports enthusiasts. Whether its spending an afternoon on the golf course or a solid 45 shooting hoops, an active lifestyle is a common thread that unites us all. We continue to champion the values that Bill layed down over forty years ago when he founded the company: Provide the consumer with the best product on the market and give them the best value. And we do that! Our product is free from any artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners and we utilize non-GMO ingredients. Plus we offer more product for a much lower price.

    So we hope that you've enjoyed getting to know us better. We thank you for being a part of the Vitalyte family and we'd love to hear your Vitalyte story!
