3 years ago, I was diagnosed with dysautonomia, but all I was told was to make sure I drank a lot of water. Bad advice. Unbeknownst to me, until recently, I was dehydrating myself. It was a nephrologist who finally just told me I needed a daily drink with sufficient sodium and potassium chloride. Impressed by Normalyte's website and collaboration with the WHO and Dysautonomia research, I ordered a pack right away. Within minutes after my first drink, a 5-day headache vanished, and the perpetual fog covering my brain lifted for the first time in years. Then my energy came back. I can't believe all this time this one little daily drink was all I needed to get right again. A month into it, my latest blood/urine labs show my sodium is finally back in the normal range, and my nephrologist says I'm improving my low blood volume, too, which likely caused a number of other issues I was having. I'm so grateful to Normalyte. I like the plain kind mixed into an agua fresca (especially watermelon and cucumber spritzers), and grape is my favorite flavor for when I'm on the go. Thanks for all you do!
I want to give them 5 stars so badly, but I cannot open the packets without scissors!! Weak/hyper mobile hands cannot tear these packets no matter how hard I try. Flavor, love! Help mitigate dysautonomia symptoms, love! No junk ingredients, love! If they could be easier to tear open, I would be in heaven.
Kaitlyn, thank you so much for your review! Let me shed some light on our packaging. Our sticks have three layers of high quality protection The three layers allow us to keep out preservatives that other brands might add. For that same reason, we do not add a slit or notch to the top to make opening easier - we want the product to be as clean and pure as possible.
To open, we recommend to tear from the top of the stick where it's been sealed down the length of the stick. It makes it so much easier! Love that you're loving NormaLyte! Especially that it's helping your symptoms! It's music to our ears. Take care and stay salty!
I have POTS and have struggled with brain fog, migraines, fatigue for a long time. Nothing has helped me as much as NormaLyte. I can feel the difference from one day to the next if I drink it. I now drink one first thing in the morning and it helps me to have more energy, feel less foggy, less headaches, etc. It's really been a life changer for me. I shared them with a friend who also has POTS and she said the same thing... it's like night and day and has been a miraculous change. I'm so grateful this product exists. I also really like that they offer one without flavoring or sugar. If you're thinking about trying it, go for it!
Thank you for sharing! We hear so often how much it's helped people with POTS get back to their normal. We know that's a HUGE deal! Makes our hearts sing!
Amazing product for any POTS patient, you get the sodium you need without any bad taste. One star off for the poor packaging. Extremely difficult to open/tear cleanly. Have to grab scissors. Nuum has a much more convenient and easy-to-open packaging. Perhaps I am used to that easy-to-open experience when I need to open the package. Doesn't change the quality of the product, but it would be perfect if they upgraded their packaging and made it more easy to open.
Thank you for reviewing NormaLyte! A tip for opening NormaLyte: open from the top of the stick down. Not side to side like other popular brands. Our packaging has three layers of protection to keep the product quality at its best. It's part of how are able to keep it preservative free!
I’ve been using Normalyte for going on 5 years. I have not found anything that compares to it that my sensitive digestive system can handle. I buy in bulk so the price is not bad. I’ve never had a problem with shipping. I drink the Pure and it takes a little bit to get used to but I love that it is not sweet and sugary tasting. I actually prefer it to plain water most days. It makes a big difference in trying to manage my POTS. It was recommended by my Doctor and I highly pass on the recommendation!!
