Ingredients Concern: None discovered
Cons: This liquid concentrate adds a slightly tart and salty flavor to water. For people who are sensitive to the mineral flavor, it is recommended to add a dash of lemon or splash of juice, but not too much.
Dehydration is strongly associated with electrolyte imbalances and health issues such as headaches, mental fogginess, a lack of energy, muscle cramps and spasms, rapid heartbeat, lightheadedness, trouble sleeping, constipation, and bloating . Hydration with electrolytes helps target each of these issues .
Electrolytes support the proper balance of water inside and outside of the body's cells; this ensures that organs and muscles function continuously .
Himalayan pink salt is a source of sodium, which is one of the most important electrolytes to replenish during activity as the loss of sodium is linked to muscle cramps and additional complications such as nerve problems [2, 3].
Potassium is the most abundant electrolyte in the body [4-6].
Low levels of magnesium are linked to electrolyte disorders [7-9].
Phosphate plays a role in nutrient and fluid transport 
Calcium plays a role in muscle movement and well as the circulation of fluid [9, 10]. Zinc has anti-inflammatory properties that heighten the body's ability to promote wound healing, including exercise-induced muscle damage .
Hydration [1-4]; Enhanced and sustained energy levels [1, 2]; Improved Mood [1, 2]
Sodium helps maintain fluid balance and supports proper muscle contractions, acid-base balance, and nerve function [2, 3]. Sweating causes the loss of sodium more than another other electrolyte [2, 3].
Potassium targets fatigue that is often linked to dehydration and it supports muscle contractions, urinary function, cardiovascular function, acid-base balance, digestive health, and the nervous system [4-6].
Magnesium supports proper muscle contractions and muscle relaxation during activity as well as glucose metabolism, which is involved in the production of energy [7-9].
Phosphate helps buffer fluid in and out of cells, it improves nutrient transport, and it promotes energy storage .
Calcium helps regulate fluid transport by influencing the narrowing and widening of blood vessels [9, 10]. It also plays a role in the regulation of the heartbeat, muscle contractions, and nutrient transport [9, 10].
Zinc improves the health through its ability to encourage detoxification, enhance immune system function, and it has also been shown to boost wound healing, including muscle tissue recovery after a workout, due to its anti-inflammatory activity .

Mix 3 mL of LyteShow with 32 ounces of water and enjoy. If desired, decrease the amount of water for a more concentrated mixture. Take as needed, but do not exceed 24 mL (8 servings) of LyteShow in a 24 hour period. Measure: 3 mL equals approximately 40 drops, 0.6 teaspoon, or 1 Travel Flask capful. To easily get 3 mL, fill the Travel Flask cap to the very top with LyteShow.
