About Vitalyte

Vitalyte (formerly Gookinaid) was started with a simple idea: Helping people. That is why the company was started and why Bill Gookin still comes to work every day. It is what fuels our success and our products. We are literally the "people's company." It goes without saying that Vitalyte's success is dependent on the athletes, doctors, mothers, kids and patients it hydrates. But we said it anyway because it's that important to us. From the get-go it's been Bill's mission to deliver a straight forward, simple electrolyte drink that replaces fluids, electrolytes and Vitamin C lost with dehydration. The result: a formula that hydrates, replenishes, energizes and revitalizes. Two vital nutrients, sodium and potassium, combine to deliver on one promise: hydrate thirsty bodies with exactly what they need and nothing they don't. It's not magic, it's electrolyte replacement. It's that simple.

    Vitalyte Sports Nutrition - Electrolyte Replacement Drink Mix Fruit Punch - 80 Servings - 35 oz. (1000 g)

    Vitalyte Sports Nutrition Electrolyte Replacement Drink Mix is fast, simple and effective, containing no artificial flavoring or coloring. Whether you're an athlete, weekend warrior or outdoor enthusiast; sick, pregnant, travelinig or just plain tired, you need something to combat and prevent dehydration. Enter Vitalyte Electrolyte Replacement. From their start more than 40 years ago, it has been their mission to deliver a back to basics electrolyte replacment solution that works, and that is precisely what they have done.

    Rapid and effctive, Vitalyte is the perfect balance of vital electrolytes and in the proper proportions to deliver on one promise: hydrate thirsty bodies with exactly what they need and nothing they don't. No empty additives, just an electrolyte replacement drink formulated for your life and anything it throws your way.

    VITALYTE'S FORMULAS
    When so many products are competing on the market, why should you use Vitalyte? It all comes back to their philosophy of making sure that Vitalyte provides their customers with sports drinks and gels that contain usable nutrients. Other electrolyte replacement brands pack their products with artificial ingredients that your body doesn't want. Many formulate their drinks with an imbalance of nutritional properties that your system can't absorb when you need them the most. Again, Vitalyte keeps it simple. They give you only what you need.

    Solving the problems
    Moreover, Vitalyte is always keeping a finger on the pulse of their customers' needs, and they have dedicated ourselves to solving the problems that today's athletes face. For some sports enthusiasts, the struggle is trying to get energized for that 7 a.m. marathon start time. Our energy gels and drinks can wake you up. For other athletes, the issue is experiencing the discomfort of having other sports drinks slosh around in their stomach while attempting to finish that race or match. That's why Vitalyte's sports nutrition products have been formulated for bioavailability and can be quickly absorbed into an athlete's body.

    Seemingly impossible task
    For all athletes, ignoring that familiar burning sensation of lactic acid building in the muscles is a seemingly impossible task. So Vitalyte has created their products to help neutralize that debilitating symptom of fatigue.

    Vitalyte passion
    At Vitalyte, their passion is to create drinks and energy gels that enhance the performance experience of every athlete. They proudly stand by their full line of sports nutrition products and hope that you will allow them to be part of your success story, too.

    DEHYDRATION AND MUSCLE CRAMPS
    By Bill Gookin
    "Why do I get cramps sometimes but not others even though the workouts are the same?"
    "Why do I get cramps an hour or more after a workout?"
    "Why do I cramp when my teammates doing the same workout don't?"
    "Why do I get cramps at night hours after doing anything that might have made my muscles tight ... or even when I've done nothing strenuous?"

    While most athletes and active people realize that dehydration and electrolytes have something to do with muscle cramps, I get lots of questions like these. To find some answers, let's look at what normally happens in muscular activity using these diagrams of a single muscle cell in which K+ represents a potassium ion and Na+ a sodium ion, two vital electrolytes as we will see. Note that with the relaxed muscle cell there are proportionately more potassium ions inside the cell than in the fluids outside the cell while the opposite is true for sodium ions.

    When a nerve impulse is transmitted to the muscle cell, the cell membrane becomes permeable and the potassium ions can migrate out of the cell while the sodium ions can diffuse into the cell as the cell contracts. If the conditions are right, the cell will then pump the excess sodium ions out of the cell and the potassium ions back into the cell.

    Meanwhile, the cell is also ratcheting the muscle fibers in the cell into the stretched or so-called "relaxed" condition. The conditions are "right" when:

    1. There is enough water in the fluids around the cells for the ions to move freely
    2. There are enough potassium ions in this extracellular fluid to restore the "relaxed" condition
    3. There are enough sodium ions to maintain the "bridge" across the cell membrane and
    4. There is enough energy available in the cell to pump the sodium and potassium ions back across the membrane and to ratchet the muscle fibers into the extended ("relaxed") condition.

    If any of these conditions are not right, the cell will not be able to stretch into the extended condition and, the next time you try to extend that muscle, it will "protest" and "refuse" to extend. If conditions in the muscles are marginal, say, you are a little dehydrated, the muscles involved will be tight and the next day they'll be sore from hundreds of "micro-muscle pulls" and the subsequent inflammation. If the conditions are worse yet or you worsen them by trying to "push" yourself even as your muscles are becoming tight, the entire muscle bundle may cramp up and you can't continue (your body's emergency "off" switch). If you still try to keep going or the cramp occurs in mid-stride the muscle will probably "pull" ... tearing some if not all of the muscle.

    As you can see, it takes more than plain water to prevent or relieve muscle cramps: you also need the proper balance of electrolytes and not just a lot of salt either. For example, too much sodium will pull fluids out of circulation into the tissues, depleting blood volume and increasing stress on your heart. You don't have to be running a marathon or hiking in the desert to be dehydrated and low on electrolytes; even daily activities can leave you dehydrated and upset your electrolyte balance.

    Sometimes you can even have "localized" dehydration, as when you are on a long plane flight or sitting at a desk or computer and your fluids can be pooled in your legs and feet. If you get up and walk around, you can feel better because your blood is circulating more and your brain is getting rehydrated. This is also a signal that you are probably at least a little dehydrated and should replace some of that fluid. Remember that the first symptom of dehydration is diminished mental function.

    What about "night cramps?" Often people will wake up in the night with leg cramps even though it's been hours since they exercised or, for many people, they haven't been exercising at all. They are dehydrated and low in electrolytes; in this case low calcium is usually the culprit and hydrating with a balanced electrolyte drink plus a calcium supplement usually solves the problem, and, believe it or not, the isotonic electrolyte drink (VITALYTE) won't make you get up in the night as much as plain water.

    "BIOCHEMISTRY 101":

    1. Ions are atoms or groups of atoms that have become electrically charged, usually when a compound is dissolved in water; for example, salt or sodium chloride (NaCl) becomes sodium ions (Na+) and chloride ions (Cl-); substances that break up in water to form these electricallycharged particles are called electrolytes.
    2. "Why do they use these symbols instead of P for potassium and S for sodium?" These chemical symbols come from the Latin names kalium and natrium respectively; P and S were already taken for phosphorus and sulfur when potassium and sodium were discovered.
    3. Note that the so-called "relaxed" term for the extended muscle is a misnomer; it has taken energy to get it extended and no energy is needed for it to contract, very much like a rubber band.

      I recommend this product!
      I have been thirsty all the time, and finally I started to drink electrolytes to see if it would help. It did, but the typical commercial drinks had so much sugar that my mouth started to hurt. I love Vitalyte...it isn't nearly as sweet, and when the sugar feels like too much, I just lessen how much powder I use. It's literally all I drink!
