ZeroLyte - Be Worth Your Salt

Electrolyte are minerals which have been dissolved into your body’s fluids. Once dissolved, they for electrically charged particles called ions.

The three main electrolytes, (sodium, potassium, and chloride), maintain fluid balance and electrolyte charges throughout the body. We need them for proper nerve activity and to transport fluid in and out of cells.

Each electrolyte has a job…

But electrolyte also work together to manage fluid balance and nerve transmission and have a multitude of functions beyont that: they regulate blood pressure, transport other nutrients around the body, help regulate hormone activity, heal wounds, and support metabolic function.

What are electrolytes - a quick review

  • Na (Sodium)
  • C1 (Chlorine)
  • MG (Magnesium)
  • K (Potassium)
  • Ca (Calcium)

What happens when we are low on electrolytes (dehydrated)?

Water alone is not enough, it is the minerals carried by the moisture in the body that is essential to life itself. Drinking water alone can sometimes be counter-productive, as it will decrease the osmolality (concentration of ions) of the extracellular fluid, signaling the kidney to let go of even more fluid to find a balance.

What does dehydration feel like?

  • Fatigue and lack of energy and vitality
  • Diminished mental clarity and concentration
  • Overall muscle weakness
  • Headaches (includes muscle tension and sinus pain)
  • Flushed face
  • Dry, warm skin
  • Dizziness
  • Cramping in the arms and legs
  • Increased illness susceptibility do to dry mucus membranes

SALT

1,000mg/serving.

Why the focus on salt? 

Your body needs a balance of sodium to function properly. Not too much and not too little.

A lot of people over consume salt by eating a diet high in processed and packaged foods. On the other hand, if you are eating a diet of fresh foods, low carbohydrate or a keto style diet, you might not be getting enough salt, especially if you are an active person. Many keto style and low carb diets are lacking in sodium, and actually cause depletion of sodium from the body.

Sodium is essential for nerve and muscle function and is involved in the regulation of fluids in the body. Sodium also plays a role in the body’s control of blood pressure and volume.

If sodium levels fall in the blood, this affects brain activity. You may feel sluggish and lethargic.

Sodium plays a critical role in helping your cells maintain the right balance of fluid. It’s also used to help cells absorb nutrients.

Why give a salt about our salt?

Not all salt is created equal.

We just didn’t use any old salt in this product. We didn’t use sodium chloride (table salt), nor did we use salt from ocean evaporation or sea brine.

We used a pure and ancient form of sea salt sourced right here in central Utah. The sea salt we use is rich in trace minerals and is pure, unpolluted, unrefined, and unadulterated. Our salt comes form salt deposits buried deep in the earth from an ancient sea called the Sundance Sea, that covered much of what is now North America during the mit to late Jurassic period of the Mosozoic era. The sea receded when the continent’s began to shift, leaving behind rich salty mineral deposits that have been preserved for 100’s of millions of years.

Our ancient Utah mineral sea salt has not been exposed to ocean pollutants, contains no micro plastics, and has not been stripped of essential trace minerals. In essence, this is as pure and pristine of an ancient mineral sea salt as you can get.

Why did we focus on sodium?

The average person loses around 800-1200mg of Sodium and 1-1.5 liters of water for every hour that they exercise (this doesn’t include water and electrolytes lost due to normal sweating, breathing, urination and defecation). Some athletes may lose up to 7g of sodium per day in hot climates.

We are assuming that consumers who take this product are health and wellness focused, and generally tend to avoid eating processed and prepackaged foods that inherently contain high amounts of sodium. We are also making the assumption that those who will use this product will be involved in daily moderate physical activity.

CHLORIDE

1500mg/serving

Chloride ions serve as important electrolytes by regulating blood pH and pressure. These ions help with the regulation of body fluids, electrolyte balance, the preservation of electrical neutrality, and acid-base status.

POTASSIUM

500mg/serving

Its main role in the body is to help maintain normal levels of fluid inside our cells. It helps your nerves to function and muscles to contract. It helps your heartbeat stay regular. It also helps move nutrients into cells and waste products out of cells.

Sodium and Potassium work together in what is know as the sodium potassium pump. It acts to transport sodium and potassium ions across the cell membrane in a ratio of 3 sodium ions  out for every 2 potassium ions brought in. In the process, the pump helps to stabilize membrane potential, and thus is essential in creating the conditions necessary for the firing of action potentials (an electrical signal that travels within neurons and allows for communication between neurons by causing the release of neurotransmitter).

MAGNESIUM

80mg/serving

This mineral plays an important role in assisting more than 300 enzymes to carry out various chemical reactions in the body such as building proteins and strong bones, and regulating blood sugar, blood pressure, and muscle and nerve functions, as well as DNA. Magnesium also acts like an electrical conductor that contracts muscles and makes the heartbeat steadily.

A splash of Coconut Water for good measure     

Because we like things that come from nature. Coconut water contains natural amounts of Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus and Potassium, in a ratio balanced by nature.
