DrinkLyte is used to help your body recover from alcohol-induced dehydration so you can feel better the next day. MoonLyte and SunLyte are oral rehydration solutions that rehydrate you immediately, just like an IV. They do not contain any chemicals or additives like caffeine or melatonin, so you can take either one at any time of day - whichever one you prefer.
An ORS is the acronym for “Oral Rehydration Solution,” a specific formula that combines water, sugar, electrolytes in a very specific ratio. ORSs rehydrate you immediately, so that you can feel better more quickly. This formula was created in the 1960s for use in the medical field to cure mild to severe dehydration in places where IVs were cost-prohibitive. DrinkLyte follows the World Health Organization’s specifications of an ORS, with the addition of all-natural colors and flavors to enhance the taste.
DrinkLyte’s formula allows water and electrolytes to pass directly into your cells, just like an IV would. This is not only healthy for your body, but it also will very quickly rehydrate in comparison with just drinking regular water. This more effective and immediate rehydration is instrumental in helping with a lot of the alcohol-induced dehydration symptoms we feel: headache, nausea, fatigue, and dry mouth.
Yes, but we cannot guarantee it will have the same effect as if used on its own. Oral rehydration solutions are powerful because they follow an optimal ratio. When you change the ratio they are less effective. We suggest that if you do choose to mix or chase with DrinkLyte, to still end your night with MoonLyte and start the next day with SunLyte, to make sure you are properly rehydrated.
Yes, but we highly recommend following the DrinkLyte system for optimal effectiveness: drink MoonLyte at the end of your night, and SunLyte first thing the next morning.
There is no evidence that rehydrating with DrinkLyte will help you ‘sober up.’ Drink responsibly, and never drink and drive.
DrinkLyte is simply an electrolyte beverage that can be enjoyed anytime. The reason that we promote it so heavily in relation to post-alcohol is that this is often a time people forget to properly rehydrate.
DrinkLyte is manufactured in FDA approved facilities and uses GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe by FDA) ingredients that comply with all regulations for Food and Beverage products. DrinkLyte does not make any claims and is not a supplement.
DrinkLyte was formulated and originally manufactured right here in Los Angeles, California. We also have manufacturing partners in Utah and other parts of the U.S.
To put it simply hangovers happen because 1) alcohol is difficult for our bodies to process and 2) alcohol dehydrates us. DrinkLyte doesn’t claim to help with the former, but it can help with the dehydration. What’s really nice about this is for many people most of the hangover symptoms are simply due to dehydration and not due to other factors. So if you can properly rehydrate, for many people, that will lead to a lot better outcome in terms of how we feel the day after drinking.
Fatigue and weakness. Excessive thirst and dry mouth.
Headaches and muscle aches.
Nausea, vomiting or stomach pain.
Poor or decreased sleep.
You see how these symptoms overlap a lot with the traditional symptoms of dehydration. This is because a lot of the negative things we feel the day after drinking are caused simply from the dehydration from the alcohol.
Fix the dehydration = fix the way you feel.

Both the drink mix and the cans are very similar. Some adjustments have been made to optimize them for their specific packaging but as far as efficacy goes, they are essentially identical.
Nope! Despite being a canned product, DrinkLyte is a still beverage, not carbonated. We made it this way because it was intended to be drunk quickly, as it is a functional beverage.
To achieve the optimal ratio we recommend mixing with 12 oz of water. 12 oz of water is typically a tall glass. If you have a 16oz water bottle, take 1-2 sips of it to make it 12 oz before mixing in the DrinkLyte powder mix.
If you would like, you can mix with up to 16 oz of water (a full water bottle) but the ratio is slightly less optimal in this format.
DrinkLyte is available via subscription for our drink mixes. If you would like DrinkLyte in a can, please submit the location that you would like to see us at on our website (drinklyte.co/cans) and we will do our best to be stocked there once the world turns back to normal.
Yes. DrinkLyte beverages do not contain any gluten-containing ingredients.
No. You can enjoy a MoonLyte or SunLyte at any time of day.
No. But DrinkLyte is a great addition to your alcohol cabinet, as it is intended to be taken after alcohol is consumed.
Designed by a UC Berkeley Nutritionist, DrinkLyte ingredients are curated very carefully to be effective, taste great, and easy to drink. Here’s a breakdown:
Water - required for an ORS to work
Dextrose - allows electrolytes to pass through intestine quickly
Citric acid - taste and pH
Sodium Citrate - electrolyte
Salt - electrolyte
Gum Acacia - helps bring electrolytes through the intestinal wall
Natural flavor - flavor
Potassium Chloride - electrolyte
Stevia - sweetness
Zinc gluconate - helps the body absorb fluids
Beta Carotene - color
Sugar is a functional ingredient required for an ORS to work properly, it is not there for taste. What it does is activate a system in your intestines called the glucose-transport pump. Glucose (sugar) activates this pump and allows electrolytes to flow quickly from the intestine to the rest of your body. It’s key to the effectiveness of the drink. We use the minimum amount of sugar to be considered an ORS, and use stevia to make our drinks taste sweeter, making DrinkLyte one of the lightest ORSs on the market with only 30 calories.
Salt is a key component of an ORS - it is one of the most important electrolytes that helps you rehydrate immediately. We have added the optimal amount of salt for DrinkLyte to be the most effective rehydration formula out there.
DrinkLyte is more hydrating than water. Because of its specific ratio of water, sugar, to electrolytes, DrinkLyte beverages allow you to absorb key electrolytes immediately, whereas water alone can take hours to absorb. If you’re drinking alcohol, your electrolytes are likely to be depleted by dehydration so you need them to recover and avoid some of the nasty symptoms of dehydration.
