Recharge Your Body Battery, Increase Your Energy and Vitality
Choosing a Lyte Solution:
Suitable for everyone. For children, use half the adult dose.
- Lyte CL
Replaces electrolytes lost in sweating. Recommended before, during and after exercise, workouts and performance. Lyte CL also replaces electrolytes lost in the urine of those with high LDL cholesterol.
- Lyte K
Especially for those with high sugar/carbohydrate, alcohol and/ or caffeine consumption. It provides potassium to alleviate cramping, spasms, hyperirritability, nervousness, dry mouth, hard stools and a fast pounding heart rate.
Using Lyte Solutions:
- Add HEq Lyte Solution concentrates to water, beverages and soup, or mix with food.
- Offset dehydration from dry indoor winter heating or the hot summer sun.
- Decrease excessive thirst and remedy a lack of thirst when HEq Lyte Solutions are used as directed.
- CAUTION: Health Equations electrolyte formulas should not be used by those with kidney disease, and should only be used under medical supervision if there is edema, hypertension, heart disease or any serious medical conditions.
Most people are dehydrated. If you are dehydrated, the charge on your body battery is low. The charge on your body battery is maintained by the right amounts of
quality water and salt and by electrolytes. Most people are deficient in one or more of the six major electrolytes.
Some indicators of dehydration are high or low blood pressure, stress,
caffeine and/or alcohol consumption, inflammation, high or low cholesterol, aversion to water or salt, unquenchable thirst, cravings for salty foods, absent or excessive sweating, a low salt diet, use of reversed osmosis or distilled water, and exposure to
indoor heat, air conditioning and dry climates
The need for water to hydrate is obvious—our bodies are over 80% water. However, water alone is usually not sufficient for hydration. Adequate intake of salt,
as well as maintaining the right amounts and ratios of electrolytes, is as essential as water for proper hydration.
Electrolytes are essential. The primary electrolytes in the body are sodium, chloride, potassium, magnesium, sulfate (not sulfur or sulfa) and phosphate (not
phosphorus). Why are these electrolytes? Because when they are dissolved in the body’s fluids they become electrically charged ions—either positive or negative. Electrolytes are distinguished from other charged ions by the notable difference between their concentrations inside the cells versus outside the cells. That difference creates a charge on the cell membranes, making each cell a battery. The cell battery sustains the functions of the cell. For example, cells use oxygen to “burn” food, which generates energy. This, in turn, charges the cell battery by actively maintaining the wide differences in the concentration of the electrolytes inside and outside the cell. In short, electrolytes are vital for optimal cell functions.
The Health Equations Lyte Solutions are not the same as sea salt dissolved in water. Although sea salt dissolved in water is an electrolyte, it does not charge your body battery. Water becomes an electrolyte if there are even small amounts of salts and minerals dissolved in it. Simply put, electrolytes conduct electricity, but water without any salts and minerals dissolved in it does not. However, sea salt dissolved in water does not charge your body battery because the ratios of potassium, magnesium, phosphates and sulfates to sodium and chloride are very low—well below a cell’s requirements for charging the cell batteries. Therefore sea salt cannot perform all the functions of the Health Equations Electrolyte Formulas. Moreover, too much sodium and chloride without the required ratios of the other four electrolytes could result in an electrolyte imbalance, and sooner or later, dehydration.
There are three Health Equations electrolyte formulas—Lyte, Lyte CL and Lyte K. Each one contains the six primary electrolytes. The quantities and ratios of the six electrolytes are specific to each formula. See the GUIDELINES for choosing and using the three HEq electrolyte formulas.
