Electrolytes are minerals that conduct electricity when dissolved in water. They’re distributed through the fluid in your body and use their electrical energy to facilitate important bodily functions such as:

  • Controlling your fluid balance
  • Regulating your blood pressure
  • Helping your muscles contract — including your heart!
  • Maintaining the correct acidity of your blood (pH)

Most of us have felt the effects of an electrolyte imbalance at one point or another – high blood pressure, dry lips and tongue, headache, weakness, dizziness, nausea and cramps. But what's the most prominent sign of dehydration? Thirst!

According to Harvard Medical School an electrolyte imbalance can even cause a visit to the emergency room. In a study published in PLOS, 20.5 percent of patients admitted to the ER with electrolyte imbalances were actually readmitted within 30 days of discharge due to the long-lasting severity of the imbalance.

The primary electrolyte we lose through sweat is Sodium. “Sodium sometimes gets a bad rep, but it helps us retain fluids,” explains Patton. “When you’re sweating from exercise or sweating from a fever, you’re losing fluid, and overtime it will cause dehydration.” 

Revitalize Wellness brings you Electrolyte Defense. An earthy, bold-flavored blend specifically designed to encourage optimal rehydration. 

Ingredients: Vitamin C as Sodium Ascorbate, Magnesium as Chelated Magnesium Glycinate, Magnesium Oratate and Di-Magnesium Malate, Potassium as Potassium Chloride, Sodium as Sodium Ascorbate, Organic Fruit Powders, Organic Spirulina (because it's high in Calcium! Orange does not contain Spirulina) and Organic Stevia (less than 1/8 tspn per bag).

Dosing Directions: 1 serving (2 tsp) 1 - 4x per day mixed in 8-16oz of water. Dosing requirements will vary from person to person based on how much fluid/sweat you lose before/after/during physical activities.

Common Questions:

1. Why does the ratio of your electrolytes vary so much compared to others on the market? Your sodium levels are 1/10th of what other electrolyte drinks contain.

The sodium comes from the sodium ascorbate. Our electrolyte defense is supposed to be taken more than once. For most people several times per day. Most Americans get very high amounts of sodium in their diets and we prefer our formula to not contain excess sodium so that people can take higher doses if needed. So we went with smaller quantities so that doses can be Orthomolecularly individualized.

2. How does this taste?

Our wonderful blend has both an earthy taste and color to it (thank you, Spirulina!) and is different than other electrolyte drinks you're used to.

First time ordering Electrolyte Defense

This stuff is AMAZING!!! I almost didn't order it as I have several types of electrolytes on the shelf already. I am so glad I did - I feel like I am doing something wonderful for my body and the taste is mild and quite pleasant. Highly recommend!

Perfect support for ICU Nurse

My husband is an ICU nurse in a major hospital and during this pandemic has often gotten moved to COVID floors. He works 13+hr shifts and maybe drinks one glass of water and a snack for the entire day. We make a big batch of this electrolyte defense for him to drink in the morning and as soon as he gets home and while it doesn't make up for the lack of water and food he consumes during the day (working on that!) it does help a ton with eliminating the fatigue, headache and other dehydration symptoms he used to have the day after he works. He had been trying to drink gatorade but I am so happy to have found a solution that is much more economical AND way healthier.

I love this new product. I would prefer without flavor so that it may decrease the serving size maybe from 2 to 1 tsp.
