Electrolytes 101

Cramping is one of the most common complaints of athletes. It can occur at any time but more often at the tail end of their workout. Cramps are a one way street in the complete cycle of muscle action. All body motion is controlled by the opening and closing of ion channels that sit in the membranes of all cells. Sodium (Na) contracts the cell and potassium (K) relaxes it. Similar action occurs to transmit a thought with Na and K triggering neurons (depolarizing) to both transmit and fire. In effect the electrolytes do it all. You can’t blink your eye or even see or hear without them.

A heart cell begins the process with Calcium (Ca) signaling the Na ion channel to open to begin the contraction cycle. There are hundreds of Na and K ion channels on each cell. A half second later Magnesium (Mg) encourages K to rush in which relaxes the cell. That’s the beat of your heart or the closing of your fist. With a heart cell the cycle is non stop; constrict with Na and relax with K. Its quite easy to see what happens when a muscle cramps. In essence you have half a beat. If a cramp hits your heart, you’re history, but in a different muscle you’ll hurt, but recover. If you’re swimming in a race half way home, it could be a disaster. Whenever it happens, it’s the guys in charge of the relaxing half of the cycle, Mg and K, that are missing. Often, athletes who are pushing the envelope sense a tingling of sorts, in say a leg muscle, before it tightens. A swig of ElyteSport could be a G-D send at that moment because it contains a high concentration of both K and Mg. “I don’t cramp any more!” They hear this from their elite athletes. All of them also say that they last longer. They don’t see an improvement in performance or time, but they are able to stay at a strong performance rate for a longer time. I would argue that if you can train longer, the logic would be that you would also increase muscle mass, or improve the flow of nutrients to a more efficient level, which, over time makes you stronger and better. But I leave the proof to the performers.

Actually, what is happening, is that the high K concentration is sufficient to complete the back side of the heart beat, or leg pump, etc. Without those 2 electrolytes Mg and K, in plentiful supply, your muscles have only the first half of the action potential to work on. Over time, that’s a one way street, that can end up as a cramp. Cramps don’t usually occur when your doing sprints, they are the result of cellular stress (loss of electrolytes) over long workouts. What ElyteSport does is make sure that you have enough K and Mg to complete the back side of the muscle pump. A number of coaches have tried “pickle juice” to prevent cramping in hot weather. Pickle juice is predominantly vinegar. Vinegar is acetic acid, and is used to remove sodium (Na) with individuals with high blood sodium levels. The coaches are lowering their athletes Na levels to prevent the first half of the muscle cycle instead of making sure that they have enough of all the electrolytes needed. Lower Na and you may not begin the cramp. Not exactly what the doctor ordered, but it can work.

However, you are removing Na to restore balance, instead of providing the correct electrolytes that the body needs at that moment, which is ... Mg and K. Training logic says that you want as high a level of electrolytes as possible, all the time, not robbing one, Na, to achieve balance. ElyteSport is perfectly designed to address the problem of cramping, and very possibly, the big one after that, and that is the potential loss of an athlete that could not handle the extremes of temperature and high performance workouts. If you're in training, a coach, or a trainer, you owe it to yourself and your athletes to check out ElyteSport.

Comparison To Other Sports Drinks


E-Lyte Sport Questions & Answers

What is ElyteSport?
ElyteSport is a balanced, concentrated formula of electrolytes that supplies essential minerals for the body. ElyteSport supplies 3 of the essential electrolytes needed for optimal health. Calcium (Ca) is the fourth electrolyte, but the reservoir of Ca from recycled bone has always been regarded as sufficient for performance. However, a number of doctors are now adding in extra Ca even when the blood levels of Ca indicate sufficiency. Since ElyteSport does not contain Ca they recommend 800 mg daily which is the RDA for Ca.

What Are ElyteSport's Ingredients?
Potassium, sodium, magnesium, chloride, phosphate, bicarbonate, and sulfate in a purified water solution. (The specific amounts are proprietary) There is no sugar or calories in E-Lyte .

Why Are Electrolytes Important?
Electrolytes give your body the electrical support necessary for your heart, muscles, and nervous system to work properly. Poor diet, climate, illness, stress, medications and other activities all rob your body of these essential electrolytes; sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, chloride, bicarbonate, phosphorus, and sulfur. Trying to replace electrolytes with sports drinks will generally be unsuccessful as most drinks provide a high concentration of carbohydrates; not electrolytes.

What does "balanced" mean?
This is very important. The contents are formulated in a unique balance which is designed to normalize or balance the body electrolytes. Balance means that we must respect the variational needs of the body for each of the electrolytes. You should not focus on any one for a long period of time. We need them all. A good idea is to do a blood chemistry and check the levels of each with your doctor.

How does it compare to Gatorade, PowerAde or other sports drinks?
Most sports drinks have a high sugar content, up to 60%. They taste good and can give you a short energy burst as a result of the high fructose. However sugar tends to rob the body of electrolytes. ElyteSport Electrolyte is made from pure water and only the essential electrolytes your body needs to function which naturally "pumps up" your cells increasing performance. Sports drinks do include some electrolytes but in much lower amounts; dramatically lower.

Why does it taste salty?
The salty taste is due to the sodium content (174 mg) per serving which is 8% of the RDA for adults. The high potassium (~ 2x sodium) tends to maintain a proper balance since the kidneys are super efficient at dumping excess potassium and conserving sodium. The salty taste will reduce over time and use. However processed foods contain a high level of sodium which is generally more than we usually require. If there are any medical concerns over the sodium content, consult your physician.

How long does a bottle last?
There are 66 servings in one 33 oz. bottle; one bottle lasts approx. 30 days, but it certainly varies with frequency and use. Some use it only when training or before bedtime. The author (me) personally premixes it and carries a bottle in the car. Another is on my bed-stand.

Should I be concerned if there is residue at the bottom of bottle?
No. ElyteSport is a highly concentrated solution with as much nutrients added that is possible to put in solution. In fact it is so supersaturated that some may fall out with a change in temperature (up to 3%). This does not affect the product. That problem of solution-fallout could be to put less ingredients into the mix. If it were not so supersaturated it would all stay in solution. They really don’t want to do that. It would most likely affect or reduce the benefits. Some users add water to the empty bottles with a bit of residue and pour it on their plants. They seem to love it.

Why can’t I put ElyteSport Concentrate in juice?
The body spends a great deal of energy keeping pH balance (all the + and - of chemistry) in good working order principally involving the gut, kidneys and lung. The electrolytes are better assimilated and utilized in liquids and foods like water, milk, soups, stews, mashed potatoes, sauces etc. Fruit juice can carry a strong pH such as orange juice which changes the pH of the electrolyte concentrate and should not be used. The high sugar content precipitates the alkaline minerals out of solution before the body can assimilate and use them.

What is the pH level of ElyteSport Electrolyte?
The pH level is 5.5.

How does E-Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate differ from ElyteSport?
ElyteSport was designed for athletes & has a higher sodium content for high performance, since athletes tend to use up electrolytes rapidly during intense activity.

What is E-Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate used for?
Balanced Electrolyte Concentrate cleans & replenishes the blood by balancing the essential electrolytes, which is vital for proper CNS (central nervous system) & muscular function. Not only balancing, but constantly adding, in cases of fatigue and poor metabolic function, such as muscle cramps in legs and feet. Electrolytes drive all muscle function from the blinking of an eye to the wiggling of a finger.

What are the ingredients in E-Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate?
E-Lye Electrolyte Concentrate is a proprietary blend of purified water with 3 macro minerals: potassium, sodium, and magnesium & their chemical partners: phosphate, chloride, bicarbonate, and sulfate.

What kind of purified water is used in E-Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate?
The water used in E-Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate is first passed through 2 filters, then through a large GE Reverse Osmoses filter, then another filter, then ultra violet purifier, then a deionizer, and finally another filter. Additionally, there is another filter, as well as a UV filter, just prior to packaging/filling. Water is their business and they are dedicated to providing the very best that is possible to obtain. That is the water that is used for all E-Lyte Electrolytes and BodyBio liquid minerals.

What is the recommended dosage of E-Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate?
The recommended dosage of E-Lye Electrolyte Concentrate is ½ an ounce of concentrate to 8 oz. of water, or 8 ounces into 1 gallon of water or milk. Drink an 8 oz. serving 1-2 times daily, or as directed by your physician or HCP.

How long will 1 bottle of E-Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate last?
There are 40 servings in one 20 oz. bottle of E-Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate. One bottle makes 2 ½ gallons of finished electrolyte drink. One bottle will last for approximately 20 to 40 days.

What can E-Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate be mixed with?
E-Lye Electrolyte Concentrate can be mixed with water or milk. Milk provides Calcium, the last of the important macro electrolytes. You can also pour 2-3 capfuls of concentrate into already cooked soups, broths, stews, or any food you’d normally add salt to. Do not cook with E-Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate, as the heat of cooking tends to reduce the magnesium content. Add it in after cooking.

Can E-Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate be mixed with Gatorade or other Juices? Why / Why Not?
Many sports drinks & most fruit juices can carry a strong acid pH, which changes the pH of E-Lyte Electrolyte Concentrate and is best not be used together. The high sugar content precipitates (removes) the alkaline macro minerals out of solution before the body can use them. Plus, it doesn’t seem to taste right. You generally would not salt fruit dinks.

About Body Bio

In 1995, Ed and Patricia Kane, Ph.D. began to develop a medical software program that would produce a list of required nutrients based on an individual’s blood chemistry results. Dr. Kane created the database, which links nutritional deficiencies to a person’s blood chemistry/CBC and red cell fatty acids, and provides recommendations to correct those deficiencies (The BodyBio Report). The product took the form of a service to doctors providing them with an evidence-based means of nutritional supplementation. The BodyBio Report is based on the research of Dr. Patricia Kane and her unique background of over thirty years of clinical research, practicums with individual leaders in metabolic intervention, as well as her experience in private practice in the field of nutritional biochemistry. BodyBio has used this pioneering research to provide nutritional diagnostic reports to healthcare practitioners around the world. These unique, in-depth reports bring into focus those nutrients that a patient’s body may require, based upon documented research and the patients’ individual blood test results. The BodyBio report has proven invaluable in assisting healthcare practitioners and researchers worldwide in providing medical care guidance as well as preventative care options for their patients.

Suggested Use

To dilute, mix 8 oz. in 1 gallon water or milk (3 capfuls per glass). Drink one or more servings before and after workout. Also can be used during times of increased stress, such as during flu or pollen season. Rebalancing electrolytes can help offset over indulgences.

Warnings

E-lyte sport is a super saturated solution in which crystallization may occur. This will not materially affect mineral value. Store in a cool dry place. Avoid mixing E-Lyte Sport in sugar-based liquids and juices.
