Electrolytes might not steal the spotlight in a person's journey with lupus but is important. The tiny yet powerful minerals can play a significant role in managing lupus symptoms and overall well-being. 


What Are Electrolytes?

First things first, let's do a quick refresher on electrolytes. These are minerals in your body that carry an electric charge and are essential for various bodily functions. They're like the superheroes of your body, helping with muscle function, nerve signaling, hydration, and maintaining proper pH levels.  Without electrolytes, your body would not function properly.


The Lupus Connection

Now, you might be wondering, "Okay, but what does this have to do with lupus?" Electrolyte balance is crucial for everyone, but it's especially important for those of us living with lupus. 

The Sodium Glucose Transport System

The sodium glucose transport system is like a VIP entrance for electrolytes into your body's cells. This system not only helps with glucose absorption but also plays a vital role in ensuring that electrolytes are properly absorbed and utilized.

Our bodies need a specific recipe for rehydration.  It’s a science, in fact, that was discovered by the World Health Organization who discovered this system in everyone's body.  

The amount of ingredients matters.  Some sugar is important in order to properly absorb electrolytes.  Glucose facilitates the absorption of sodium (and hence water!).  It takes a 1:1 ratio to work.  One molecule of glucose to one molecule of sodium go together in your small intestine to hydrate you through the cotransport system.

How NormaLyte Can Help

We've got a trusty sidekick in this battle: NormaLyte. This electrolyte supplement is specifically designed to help restore and maintain electrolyte balance in the body. As an oral rehydration salt (an ORS), NormaLyte uses the sodium glucose cotransport system to help your body absorb electrolytes most efficiently. 

In fact, it's more efficient at rehydrating your body than water alone.

NormaLyte isn't just your average electrolyte supplement. It's formulated to support hydration, muscle function, and overall well-being, which are all crucial for managing lupus symptoms. Whether you're dealing with fatigue, muscle weakness, or just feeling a bit off, NormaLyte can give you that extra boost of electrolytes your body needs.

  • NormaLyte

    Hi C.! Good question. NormaLyte’s Pure actually does contain glucose. Some form of sugar is important in the formula in order for it to be considered an oral rehydration salt. Our Pure ORS Salt Sticks contain dextrose which is a simple and easily digestible form of sugar.

    Hi there, I wondered if Normalyte Pure is less effective than the original solution because it doesn’t use glucose? Thanks!
