BIOLYTE has 650% more electrolytes than sports drinks.
BIOLYTE is the first drink medically designed to have the same amount of electrolyte levels as an IV bag - That’s the equivalent of drinking 7.5 sports drinks.

There is a lot of Sodium and Chloride in BIOLYTE. Why did you choose the amounts you did?
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.
Why is there more Potassium in BIOLYTE than a D5 1/2 Lactated Ringers?
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.) your body loses 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 less than 1/3 the sugar of a leading sports drink. The reason Dr. Rollins chose dextrose is because it is a superior sugar that helps with nausea, cramps, and fatigue. Doctors will add dextrose to patients IV bags when they need energy quickly. 10g of dextrose is the exact amount to ensure you feel your best.
LET’S BREAK IT DOWN
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.
You only absorb about 10-11g of carbohydrates per bottle.
