Stay Hydrated with the Best: Why Electrolytes Matter

As someone with deep Celtic roots, I initially wanted to use Celtic salt in my electrolyte formula to represent my heritage. Being 100% Irish and holding an Irish passport, it felt right to honor the motherland. However, after thorough research, I found that pink Himalayan salt offered more trace minerals and fewer contaminants than Celtic salt, leading me to choose it for its superior health benefits.

The Importance of Hydration and Electrolytes

My journey into the world of hydration and electrolytes started during my time as a lab rat at the Gatorade Sports Science Institute. For over a decade, I immersed myself in sports science, testing new products and analyzing sweat with pro athletes. This background fueled my interest in hydration and led to a pivotal moment during a surf sabbatical in Bali.

In Bali, I faced intense hydration challenges due to my rigorous daily activities—surfing for hours, attending workout classes, and frequenting saunas. The solution? Adding pink Himalayan salt and lemon to my water. This simple adjustment transformed my hydration levels, making me realize the power of electrolytes. Unlike regular water, electrolytes replenish what you lose through sweat, ensuring optimal hydration and performance.

Why Gatorade and Commercial Products Fall Short

While Gatorade once championed the idea of replacing what you sweat out, its acquisition by PepsiCo led to a shift toward sugar-heavy formulations. Although they offer low-sugar alternatives, I found that products like Element provided better electrolyte balance. I aimed to create an even superior product by enhancing it with pink Himalayan salt, adding essential calcium to prevent bone loss, and incorporating the best forms of magnesium for overall health.

Crafting the Perfect Electrolyte Formula

Magnesium glycinate and magnesium threonate are crucial components of my formula. Magnesium glycinate is the most bioavailable form, aiding in recovery and muscle function, while magnesium threonate supports brain health and mood, potentially preventing cognitive decline.

Additionally, I wanted my formula to be sugar-free. Inspired by Liquid I.V.'s extensive research into natural sweeteners, I chose allulose, a low-calorie sweetener that doesn't compromise on taste. By combining the best elements from leading electrolyte products, I created a formula that supports hydration, recovery, and overall well-being.

How Electrolytes Have Changed My Life

Living in Miami Beach, where I’m active and outdoors daily, my hydration needs are significant. I consume about four electrolyte drinks a day, starting from the moment I wake up, after workouts, during the afternoon slump, and in the evening. This regimen has provided me with sustained energy and mental clarity, significantly enhancing my daily performance.

Understanding Dehydration and Its Impact

Many people mistake hunger for thirst or fatigue for dehydration. Especially during travel, where airplane air is exceedingly dry, staying hydrated with electrolytes is crucial. My frequent travels highlighted the importance of maintaining hydration to ensure every day is productive and energetic.
