Ingredients Matter. Creating our High-Potency Electrolyte Drink Mix

We purposefully set out to pack Insaltd with more electrolytes than any other brand. Why? Because, as athletes, you likely need way more electrolytes (salts) to hydrate optimally.

The main reason most other brands have less than 50% of the electrolytes is that electrolytes typically taste like %$#% — unless you like the taste of seawater. The alternative is to stuff it full of sugar, artificial sweeteners or stevia to make it palatable.

At Insaltd, we found a better way. Our formulation uses the revolutionary zero-calorie, plant-derived sweetener Glyvia™ that helps support healthy blood sugar and insulin response while also enhancing nutrient absorption. It has been approved by Health Canada as a dietary supplement and it is the primary reason we can get so many hydrating electrolytes in our naturally-flavored formula and still deliver a great-tasting drink.

Why do we have such a high concentration of electrolytes in our blend?
On average, athletes will produce somewhere between 1 to 4 liters of sweat per hour and lose between 500mg and 1300mg of sodium per liter in that sweat with the median being 900mg of sodium — which is why Insaltd has 900mg of sodium. Although sodium is the most important electrolyte for hydration, it does not work alone.

We paired the sodium with potassium and magnesium in a ratio of 9:3:1 to create a beautifully balanced electrolyte blend that helps you hydrate more effectively.

Each packet of Insaltd has:

Sodium 900mg:

Delivered as sodium chloride (NaCl – table salt),
Sodium is an essential electrolyte that plays a vital role in hydration and electrolyte balance in the body. Sodium helps regulate the body’s fluid levels by attracting and retaining water. It is also important for maintaining blood pressure and supporting muscle and nerve function. When you sweat, you lose not only water but also electrolytes, including sodium, which can lead to dehydration. Replenishing electrolytes, particularly sodium, is important for maintaining optimal hydration and preventing symptoms of dehydration, such as muscle cramps,  thirst, fatigue, and dizziness. 

Magnesium 100mg

Delivered as magnesium citrate
Essential for maintaining optimal health and athletic performance, magnesium plays a key role in everything from bone and heart health to brain function and nervous system regulation. When it comes to hydration, magnesium works with sodium and potassium to create a strong foundation of electrolytes your body needs. According to this article by the National Library of Medicine, even a marginal magnesium deficiency, “impairs exercise performance and amplifies the negative consequences of strenuous exercise (e.g., oxidative stress).” 

Vitamin D3 100 IU   

Of the many overall health benefits Vitamin D3 provides, we included 100IU boost primarily to help support healthy lung function, calcium absorption and for its anti-inflammatory properties. D3 is also essential for maintaining healthy skin hydration.

Chromium Polynicotinate 10mcg:

Chromium polynicotinate is a form of the essential mineral chromium that is bound to niacin (vitamin B3). It is commonly used as a dietary supplement to support healthy blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels, and weight management. Some research suggests that chromium polynicotinate may also have benefits for mood, cognitive function, and immune system function.

Potassium 300mg:

Delivered as potassium citrate.
Potassium is commonly used as a dietary supplement to support hydration and electrolyte balance in the body. Potassium is an essential electrolyte that helps regulate the body’s fluid levels, supports muscle function, and maintains normal blood pressure. Citric acid is a weak organic acid that is found in many fruits and vegetables and has a sour taste. When taken as a supplement, potassium citrate can help replenish potassium levels and support optimal hydration, particularly in individuals who are physically active.

Calcium 18mg 

Calcium is essential for healthy bones and muscles, and is especially important for athletes. It helps with blood pressure regulation, brain function, insulin sensitivity, and muscle contraction. Calcium deficiency can lead to muscle cramps and impaired muscle contraction, and can also increase the risk of stress fractures. Athletes should consider taking calcium supplements, but it is also important to include cofactors like vitamin D3 and minerals like magnesium and potassium to maintain proper calcification.

Glyvia 500mg

Glyvia™ is a patented, Health Canada approved, dietary supplement that provides plant-based zero-calorie sweetness. It is a proprietary aminoacetic acid and plant glycosides complex that delivers a unique, full-mouth sweetness similar to that of sugar and without the bitter aftertaste of stevia. We like to call it a “functional sweetener” because it also assists with nutrient absorption without the caloric or negative metabolic effects. We are excited to share this new sweetener with the world—it’s going to be a game changer.
