Why the Sugar?
The sugar we use in DrinkLyte is strictly functional and not for taste.
Removing the sugar would actually no longer make the rehydration optimal.
Why the Salt?
Salt (Sodium Chloride) is a primary electrolyte and one of the key components of rehydration. Salt that you drink in an ORS like DrinkLyte doesn’t have the same negative effects that are often associated with high-salt food.

What is DrinkLyte?
DrinkLyte is a two-part recovery and rehydration system designed to make you feel better after drinking alcohol. Its two products make up a post-alcohol wellness regimen: drink MoonLyte after a night of drinking alcohol (but before you go to sleep), and SunLyte first thing the next morning. They are designed to add a wellness component around alcohol consumption so you can still celebrate, but have a plan to help your body recover, therefore allowing you to do more the next day.
What is DrinkLyte used for?
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 - whatever suits your party style.
What is an “ORS”?
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 quickly. This formula was created in the 1960’s 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.
How Does DrinkLyte Work?
DrinkLyte’s formula allows water and electrolytes to pass from the intestines to the rest of your body immediately, just like an IV would. This is not only healthy for your body, but it also will help mitigate a lot of the negative symptoms associated with a hangover like headache, nausea, fatigue, and dry mouth. The science of hangovers is complicated, but much of their symptoms are due to dehydration.

Why does DrinkLyte have 6 grams of sugar?
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.
Can DrinkLyte be used as a mixer or chaser?
Yes, but we cannot guarantee it will have the same effectiveness if used as directed. We suggest that you still follow the regimen, even if you use DrinkLyte to chase or mix. So make sure you’re prepared when it’s party time.

Is DrinkLyte better than water?
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.
