As you may have noticed, many of the Redmond Re-Lyte range is currenty out of stock. The reason is Redmond are remixing their Re-Lyte products with a new name (Re-Lyte Hydration), new labels, less calories and a new easier to mix formula 👍
Re-Lyte Electrolyte Mix is now Re-Lyte Hydration. When Redmond created Re-Lyte, their goal was to provide a clean, effective source of everyday hydration. The new name captures that mission better and makes it easier to understand Re-Lyte’s most important purpose— to keep you perfectly hydrated!
Redmond have redesigned the Re-Lyte Hydration label so it looks sleeker and it’s easier to distinguish from the other products in the Re-Lyte line.
Redmond are making one small change to the Re-Lyte formula, but it’s going to have a big impact! The improved formula contains calcium carbonate instead of calcium lactate. There are a few benefits to calcium carbonate that motivated us to make the switch, like better mixability and fewer calories.
If you have concerns related to the quality, bioavailability, or side effects of calcium carbonate, Redmond want to share some information that could help put your mind at ease. Redmond only use the highest-quality, pharmaceutical-grade, purified calcium carbonate. You should also know that hydrating with Re-Lyte isn’t the same as taking calcium carbonate by itself.
As Re-Lyte dissolves, the calcium carbonate interacts with the citric acid in Redmond's formula to create calcium citrate, which is the form of calcium that’s known to be most bioavailable and easiest on the stomach.
How It Mixes
Any Re-Lyte fan knows that the original Re-Lyte formula took a little extra time and effort to mix. Thanks to the calcium change, the improved formula mixes quickly and easily.
Redmond love the fasting community, so they're happy to announce that every single Re-Lyte flavor will be calorie-free and more fasting-friendly than ever! By switching to calcium carbonate, Redmond reduced the calorie count in their flavored Re-Lyte varieties from five calories per serving to zero.
The Serving Size
Calcium carbonate is 40% calcium while calcium lactate is only 13% calcium. That means you need less calcium carbonate to get the same serving of calcium. As a result, Re-Lyte’s serving size (and the net weight of the jars) will decrease slightly. But you’ll still get the same amount of each electrolyte in a serving, and you’ll get the same number of servings per jar.
What’s Staying the Same?
When Redmond created Re-Lyte, they worked with health and fitness experts to develop a highly intentional electrolyte ratio that delivers exactly what your body needs. Redmond have kept the same ratio in the updated formula.
Redmond are committed to only using quality, effective ingredients that support your healthy lifestyle. Redmond held true to this commitment with the updated formula.
Redmond are offering Re-Lyte in the same seven flavors (Lemon Lime, Mixed Berry, Unflavored, Mango, Strawberry Lemonade, Watermelon Lime, and Pina Colada), and they all still taste delicious!
Commitment to Reduce Waste
Redmond focus a lot of time and attention on how we can make their packaging more sustainable while keeping it effective. As we worked on updating Re-Lyte, Redmond noticed one simple way to reduce our use of plastic— get rid of the plastic shrink sleeve around the jar! Redmond plan to keep looking for new ways to make there packaging more environmentally friendly.
Beyond the calcium, Redmond didn’t change anything else in the Re-Lyte formula, which means it still stands out in the sea of sugary, artificial, and less effective options.
It contains an ideal ratio of electrolytes. It’s powered by Redmond's unrefined, ancient sea salt Real Salt, which they mine in central Utah. It contains more sodium than the average electrolyte mix, so it can help replenish what you lose through sweat. And it’s free from sugar and artificial sweeteners. Rest assured, it’s still the same Re-Lyte you know and love!
