Let's talk salt
BIOLYTE is based off of a D5 1/2 Normal Saline (IV Bag) also known as a D5 1/2 Lactated Ringer. These are used for IV fluid and electrolyte replacements in a non operative setting because they provide energy with dextrose and free water.
BIOLYTE is based off of a D5 1/2 Normal Saline because it is exactly what the human body needs when your body's balance or homeostasis has been altered by exhaustion, sickness, or exercise.

Potassium has to be given very slowly and in small amounts intravenously (through a vein) or it can seriously affect the heart rhythm. It is much safer to give this electrolyte orally and is much needed to replace intracellular potassium losses. After a GI upset (ie. vomiting, diarrhea, etc.) you body looses large amounts of potassium. BIOLYTE has the correct amounts of Potassium to replace what is lost.Wait a minute. Isn’t salt bad?!
The salt in Biolyte is not like regular table salt. Biolyte's exact amounts of Sodium and Chloride match what you would find in a standard IV bag. Plus, Biolyte contains extra Potassium because the balance between these 3 salts or electrolytes is actually what makes our nerves work - helps our brain function, muscles move, and hearts beat. This concentrated amount of Sodium, Chloride, and Potassium was put in Biolyte to help you feel better when your body's balance or homeostasis has been altered by exhaustion, sickness, or exercise.
BIOLYTE contains 10g of dextrose. This is half of what you will find in the leading sports drinks. The reason Dr. Rollins chose dextrose is because it is a superior sugar that helps with nausea, cramps, and fatigue. 10g of dextrose is the exact amount to ensure you feel your best.
BIOLYTE doesn't actually contain 27g of carbohydrates. 17 of those grams derives from erythritol, a natural sweetener that can be found in some fruits. Dr. Rollins chose to use erythritol because it does not affect blood sugar, it does not cause tooth decay, and only 5% of all erythritol is absorbed by the body - 95% of all erythritol simply passes through the digestive tract unabsorbed by the body.
This is the reason why Biolyte only has 10g of total sugars, and one of the many reasons why Biolyte only has 40 calories.
