Frequently Asked Questions

Nutrition & Ingredients

Why is there 700mg of sodium in BIOLYTE?

BIOLYTE is based on standard IV Bag (D5 Half Lactated Ringer) which is used to balance out the system, provide energy, and aid body functions in a non-operative setting.The sodium count in BIOLYTE is essential in the distribution of water and other electrolytes throughout the body. Sodium Chloride is a naturally occurring mineral that when combined with sugar treats dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. The average person's kidneys are able to filter out this amount of sodium through sweat, urine, or waste- making it perfectly safe for most people to consume.

Why is sugar needed in BIOLYTE?

If BIOLYTE didn't have sugar, it wouldn't work effectively! BIOLYTE contains just enough sugar (10g of dextrose) to help your body move all of the electrolytes found in BIOLYTE from the small intestine to the bloodstream. It's a process called sodium-glucose cotransport. Additionally, dextrose will also help with nausea, cramps, and fatigue.

Why is dextrose better for you than other sugars?

Dextrose, the sugar found in BIOLYTE, is a naturally occurring sugar that's identical to blood sugar. Since dextrose has a very simple structure, it does not require any digestion and is absorbed directly into the bloodstream. This is also why doctors will add dextrose to patients IV bags when they need energy quickly. Sucrose, on the other hand, is far too large for direct absorption and requires digestion using the enzyme sucrase which is found in the small intestine.

What's Erythritol and why is it in BIOLYTE?

Erythritol is a natural sweetener that can be found in some fruits. We chose to incorporate erythritol because it doesn't affect blood sugar, doesn't cause tooth decay, and only 5% of all erythritol is absorbed by the body. This is why our calorie count stays low at 45 kcal per bottle. BIOLYTE's mix of dextrose and erythritol will facilitate rapid absorption, but not cause a blood sugar spike.

Am I actually absorbing 26g of Carbohydrates?

No! BIOLYTE has 10g of dextrose and 16g of erythritol, for a total carbohydrate count of 26g. However, 95% of erythritol does not get absorbed by the body so you only absorb about 10-11g total sugars per each 16 fl oz bottle.

Can I see BIOLYTE's Supplement Label?

BIOLYTE's supplement panel is available on each product page.

Product Questions

How does BIOLYTE compare to other leading hydration products?

Why is BIOLYTE more hydrating than water?

BIOLYTE uses two different kinds of salts that are key for rapid dehydration relief - Sodium Chloride (Na+Cl-) and Potassium Chloride (K+Cl-) salts. Both types of electrolytes keep more water in your body, thus hydrating you more effectively than plain water.

What does BIOLYTE taste like?

BIOLYTE has four flavors: Citrus, Berry, Tropical, and Melon. Citrus tastes like a saltier lemon-lime recovery drink. Berry is sweet, tart, and sometimes described as candy-like. Tropical is a smooth blend of sweet, tropical fruits. Melon offers a smooth, refreshing pop of watermelon.

Does it matter when I drink BIOLYTE, and how long does it take to work?

BIOLYTE is safe to drink at any time of day. The IV in a bottle helps fight headaches, nausea, and fatigue associated with dehydration. After you drink a BIOLYTE, wait approximately 30-minutes to feel the benefits.

Additional Questions

How many BIOLYTE bottles can I drink in a day?

One to three bottles of BIOLYTE a day is perfectly safe to consume. We don't recommend drinking more than that because it is simply not necessary for the average person. Only in specific instances (i.e. If you are sick and losing fluids or profusely sweating from working outdoors) will you potentially need more than our recommended amount. If you are concerned about your BIOLYTE consumption, consult with your physician.

Can you overdose on BIOLYTE?

It is not possible to overdose on BIOLYTE. Howerver, but we don't recommend drinking more than one to three bottles a day because it's not necessary for the average person.

Is BIOLYTE safe for pregnant women?

Absolutely! BIOLYTE is a natural alternative to medicine to ease stomach inflammation and morning sickness that many soon-to-be mothers experience in their first trimester. In addition, it offers a natural energy boost! We recommend consulting with your physician before introducing a new product into your diet during pregnancy.

Is BIOLYTE safe for children to drink?

Although BIOLYTE is safe for many children, we recommend watering down BIOLYTE for anyone consuming our beverage under the age of 14. We recommend consulting with your physician before offering BIOLYTE to your children.

Is BIOLYTE safe for those with high blood pressure or kidney issues?

The natural ingredients in BIOLYTE help support overall hydration, energy levels, cellular balance, and liver functionality in the body. The sodium in BIOLYTE helps with distribution of water and other electrolytes throughout the body. The average person's kidneys are able to filter out this amount of sodium through sweat, urine, or waste making it perfectly safe for most people to consume. This product will not cause hypertension. However, if you are already suffering from high blood pressure or hypertension, we recommend consulting with your physician before consuming BIOLYTE.
