Who Needs Optimal Electrolyte

It takes only a 1% loss of water to create symptoms of dehydration.

Attention, concentration, memory and overall mental processing speed are all negatively affected by just a 1% loss of hydration.

Assess each statement below. If you can relate to one or more, then Optimal Electrolyte may be the electrolyte supplement you need:

  • After a night’s sleep, I like starting my day properly hydrated.
  • No matter what electrolyte I try, I tend to cramp. I would like to find an electrolyte that supports healthy muscle contraction and muscle relaxation.
  • I tend to wake up at night and pee. I would like to sleep throughout the night.
  • When I exercise, I tend to experience muscle cramps. I would like to have healthy functioning muscles.
  • I would like to support healthy blood sugar levels.
  • Most electrolytes are high in sodium but very low in potassium and magnesium. I would like my electrolyte to have more potassium and magnesium.
  • When I look at my calf muscles, they seem to twitch or move a little on their own. My doctor calls them fasciculations. I would like to support healthy calf muscles.
  • I would like to experience a consistent, rhythmic heartbeat.
  • I often get headaches especially if I don’t hydrate. I would like to support healthy hydration so my head feels healthy.
  • I’m taking diuretics, albuterol, laxatives, or insulin. My doctor says I need to support healthy hydration and support healthy potassium levels.
  • I drink water and find that I need to go pee right away. I would like to drink water and not pee so frequently.
  • I’m overweight. I heard recently that having a higher proportion of body fat to muscle mass leads to lower total body water content.
  • I often have a water bottle on my desk or my kid’s backpack for school. I would like to add an effective, great-tasting and healthy electrolyte to my filtered water.
  • My legs tend to spasm and move involuntarily at night or while traveling. I would like to support healthy sleep and muscle function.
  • I travel a lot by plane and experience fatigue after flying. Airplanes tend to dehydrate me due to the very low humidity in the cabin. I need to support healthy hydration while flying.
  • I know I don’t drink enough water but I don’t like water. I need to flavor it with something and I’m looking for a great-tasting electrolyte.
  • I’m pregnant and know I need to support healthy hydration for me and my developing baby.
  • I’m breastfeeding and know I need to support healthy hydration for me and my breast milk production.
  • I live in a windy, dry or sunny environment. I know I’m losing a lot of water through my skin.
  • I keep telling my kids to drink more water but they don’t. I would like to find something that is healthy, tastes great and they will want to drink without me nagging them all the time.
  • I drink soda, flavored water or juice often. I’m looking to replace these with a low calorie, healthy, effective and great-tasting electrolyte.
  • I love coconut water but I just found out it is very high in carbohydrates and sugar! I need to replace it with something that is as good, or better, and low calories.
  • At times, I drink alcohol. I know it makes me dehydrated. I would like to restore healthy hydration after drinking.
  • I drink caffeine at times - coffee, tea, soda, matcha, yerba mate - and it makes me pee more frequently. I know I need to properly hydrate.
  • I’m looking for a stevia-free, sugar-free electrolyte.

If a number of those resonated with you, then Optimal Electrolyte is something that you should seriously consider.

If none of the statements above relate to your current life situation, then Optimal Electrolyte is most likely not something you need right now.

Customer Review

These electrolytes taste so amazing!

When I first had them I instantly thought of the taste of your favorite sports drinks like Gatorade or Powerade which was surprising because most electrolytes don’t have the best taste. When taking these electrolytes, I felt relaxation in my back muscles where I have been feeling some tightness. I was able to stretch out and felt strong after consuming Dr. Ben’s electrolytes!! ~Noble Simms

Key Ingredients In Optimal Electrolyte

  • Sodium as real Himalayan Pink Salt & Potassium: Essential electrolytes that support hydration and water balance in cells. 99% of people are deficient in potassium which is why we have so much more potassium than sodium.
  • HydroPrime ®: Supports hydration status, especially when training in the heat, and supports healthy recovery.† (Berry, Orange, and Lemonade flavors.)
  • PeakATP ®: Supports exercise performance, recovery from fatigue and healthy blood flow.
  • Niacin: A building block for NAD+, which are essential in the Krebs cycle for energy production.,
  • Magnesium: An essential electrolyte that provides an electrical charge for cell membrane function. It also supports healthy muscle contraction and repair.
  • Taurine: Supports magnesium absorption and healthy perspiration.
  • Creatine Monohydrate: Used in place of HydroPrime ® in Unflavored only. An amino acid that supports cellular energy, endurance, and brain function.

Why Optimal Electrolyte Works

The proprietary Hydration Blend of Optimal Electrolyte is why it works well.

Optimal Electrolyte’s Hydration Blend deeply hydrates all of you.

To experience deep hydration, you have to get electrolytes inside every one of your cells.

That’s not easy.

Let’s talk energy first.

You have to use energy, a lot of energy, to literally pump electrolytes into your cells.

Pumping electrolytes into your cells is energetically very expensive.

40% of all your body’s energy is used hydrate you!

20-30% of your energy pumps potassium into your cell and pump sodium out.

10% of your energy pumps magnesium into your cell and calcium out.

The energy your body uses to pump electrolytes into your cells is called ATP.

You’re getting ATP with each sip of Hydration Blend.

The added niacin also supports healthy energy metabolism.

Let’s talk about osmolytes.

Taurine and HydroPrime are the other two key factors in Optimal Electrolyte’s Hydration Blend

HydroPrime is a trademarked and researched glycerol compound.

HydroPrime helps provide deep cellular hydration. When the osmolyte glycerol is consumed, it rapidly gets absorbed into your cells. Water follows glycerol so your cells become properly hydrated.

Taurine is another effective osmolyte. This, too, helps balance electrolytes and water inside your cells.

Now let’s talk about the electrolytes themselves.

We provide a lot more potassium than sodium.

Why?

  • Potassium deficiency is present in 99% of women and 90% of men.
  • Sodium deficiency is extremely uncommon.
  • The primary electrolyte deficiency associated with muscle cramping is potassium.
  • If you need more salt, it’s very easy for you to add a pinch of salt from your own salt shaker at home than it is for you to find potassium somewhere.

We chose to use Himalayan pink salt as it is harvested from ancient caves. Sea salt contains microplastics. Ancient cave salt doesn’t. The taste of Himalayan pink salt is excellent as well. The taste may be due to the additional trace minerals found in it.

Dr. Lynch’s Tips

Proper hydration is second to breathing in terms of importance to sustain a healthy life.

The rules of 3 determine how important it is to use Optimal Electrolyte on a daily basis.

One cannot sustain life when:

  • 3 minutes without air.
  • 3 days without water.
  • 3 weeks without food.

Depending on what I do in a day, my usage of Optimal Electrolyte varies

  1. Every morning, I don’t eat breakfast right away, Instead, I properly hydrate by sipping a glass of Optimal Electrolyte over a period of about 30 minutes. I drink it while in the office.
  2. If I sauna, I sip a serving during the session.
  3. If I go to the gym, I will take a sip from my water bottle between sets while working out.
  4. If I feel that water later in the afternoon is not cutting it, I will have another serving. Typically, the trigger for me to go prepare some electrolytes is when my head feels fuzzy and cognition is slower than desired.

If you find yourself sweating a lot, you may want to add a pinch of salt to your electrolytes. I do this if I have a heavy sweating sauna or exercise session.

Typically, you do not need, and shouldn’t, add more salt to your electrolytes - only if you’re sweating profusely. You usually get more than sufficient sodium in your diet.

Be sure to sip, and hold, then swallow. Do not chug your electrolytes. Absorption is so much better by following these suggestions.

Kids do not stop to drink water. They’re too busy and distracted. As a father, I always prepare a glass of Optimal Electrolyte for my boys and walk it over to them. Ideally, prepare their water bottle for school and sports with a serving of Optimal Electrolyte.

If you prepared a water bottle full of Optimal Electrolyte and you haven’t finished it, put it in the fridge. It will be good for a couple days. I do this at times when I feel I don’t want to finish it.

    The best electrolyte

    Love this product. Electrolyte drinks are usually loaded with junk, but this one is different! I love Dr. Lynch's mindfulness in creating products with exceptional ingredients. I have energy, my headaches have gone away, and my whole family loves it!

    New Formula is BAD

    We ordered the 6 pack as we loved the old formula. Wish we hadn't - the new formula is clumpy/stuck together upon opening, chalky, sits at the bottom of the glass and not nearly as effective as the old formula. The taste is awful and we have to mix it with other things for it to taste decent. Definitely won't be buying any more.

    Please bring back the original formula :(

    The old formula would cake on me for some reason and I had to throw it out the last time I had it because I couldn’t scoop the powder any longer but it definitely was better on my body and I loved it. This new formula doesn’t cake so far but it doesn’t hold flavor well, upsets my stomach and I believe overall gives me a reaction. Please bring the original formula back and the sticks as they were so convenient and helped with avoid the caking that comes with the tub.
