I have hEDS and have just been diagnosed with CAN--Cardiac Autonomic Neuropathy (dysautonomia, but not POTS). As well as dietary changes and other supplements, my doctor has prescribed 16 grams of pink sea salt a day. She would prefer me to "eat" pink sea salt, but I have been struggling to consume this much each day. I was looking for alternatives and found NormaLyte. I got a sample and it definitely makes it easier to consume enough sodium. However, 16 grams of sodium seems to equal 13 NormaLyte packages a day, making it prohibitively expensive for me. I am on Disability and am not eligible for HSA/FSA, so that option is not available to me. I hope to be able to use NormaLyte as part of my regimen, but I will have to consider my limited budget. I appreciate the science behind NormaLyte and the care that has gone into developing the product. Thank you.
Thank you, Michelle for telling us a little about you and how NormaLyte has helped! I'll reach out to you via email with a discount code that may help a little with purchases.
This product has reduced my need for IV fluids in half. I’m baffled. I have EDS/POTS and had been struggling with LMNT/Liquid IV/Pedyalite, Vitassium pills. I was taking as much as I could and it wasn’t working. I decided to try this one and couldn’t believe the change. I have been using for a few months now and I started going much longer between my scheduled infusions. I use the pure packets in a large cup of tea with milk and it tastes good which motivates me to keep my fluids going. If you are like me, try it out! I think the sugars to help the absorption and almost all the other brands cut the sugar and add fake sweetener.
Ashley, thanks for the review! We love to hear how it's helping you! Yes, you're spot on. The small amount of sugar in NormaLyte is there to help facilitate the absorption of sodium into your system. It's necessary for proper absorption. Good eye!
I’m in a multi year process of being diagnosed for POTS/Dysautonomia (nobody can agree). Found Normalyte a month ago and cried. I drink about 2 packets a day mixed into 2 liters of water (it’s a little too much water to normalyte but that’s the size of my container). I find this ratio completely gets rid of the silky texture rehydration drinks can have, and just leaves the water feeling wet. Love that it’s flavorless, this way I can mix it into anything I drink. I’ve tried plain water, lemonade, coffee, and two different teas. The only one that tasted a bit off was the berry tea. I’ve had so much more energy this past month and my heart rate has been very steady for me.
I do find there is a slight salty taste. Depending on how much salt my body needs the stronger/weaker the taste. This has never had that horrible snot taste of saline or Gatorade though. Its an incredibly mild aftertaste of salt.
(Just a note: the description says 4.4 grams of salt is 862 mg sodium, I believe 4.4 grams of salt is 1760 mg of sodium)
Thank you, Colin! Remember, drinking NormaLyte ice cold is best for taste, and you can always add a little more water if you need to.
These sticks keep me from having to go to the emergency room for fluids more times than I can count. Thankful for a product that doesn’t have a bunch of sugar and artificial junk in them. Thank you!
So thankful we've been able to help you! Take care!
I have Pots and found this product extremely helpful. I am thankful they have occasional deals because it does make a huge difference in how I feel and I need to drink it daily. I also love the fact that it comes without flavor and love that it has no artificial sweeteners.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your comment! Stay salty!
