Ingredients Matter. Creating our High-Potency Electrolyte Drink Mix
We purposefully set out to pack Insaltd with more electrolytes than any other brand. Why? Because, as athletes, you likely need way more electrolytes (salts) to hydrate optimally.
The main reason most other brands have less than 50% of the electrolytes is that electrolytes typically taste like %$#% — unless you like the taste of seawater. The alternative is to stuff it full of sugar, artificial sweeteners or stevia to make it palatable.
At Insaltd, we found a better way. Our formulation uses a revolutionary zero-calorie, plant-derived sweetener called Glyvia™ that actually helps support healthy blood sugar and insulin response while also enhancing nutrient absorption. It has been approved by Health Canada as a dietary supplement and it is the primary reason we can get so many hydrating electrolytes in our naturally-flavored formula and still deliver a great-tasting drink.
Why do we have such a high concentration of electrolytes in our blend?
On average, athletes will produce somewhere between 1 to 4 liters of sweat per hour and lose between 500mg and 1300mg of sodium per liter in that sweat with the median being 900mg of sodium — which is why Insaltd has 900mg of sodium.
Although sodium is the most important ele ctrolyte for hydration, it does not work alone.
InSaltd paired the sodium with potassium and magnesium in a ratio of 9:3:1 to create a beautifully balanced electrolyte blend that helps you hydrate more effectively.
Glyvia™: ZERO Calorie.
ZERO Aftertaste. 100% Plant-Based Sweetener.
Glyvia™ is a patented, Health Canada approved, dietary supplement that provides plant-based zero-calorie sweetness. It is a proprietary aminoacetic acid and plant glycosides complex that delivers a unique, full-mouth sweetness similar to that of sugar and without the bitter aftertaste of stevia. These glycosides are paired with a proprietary blend of amino acids that contribute to blood sugar management while also helping the glycosides adhere to the tongue, allowing for far fewer glycosides to be used and thus eliminating the bitter aftertaste many glycosides, like stevia, are notorious for.
Our blend of sweet plant glycosides has proven to deliver a pleasant sugar-like flavor profile while mitigating astringency, bitterness and herbaceous notes normally associated with any single glycoside.
Glyvia’s formulation of different natural sweet ingredients also brings the texture and mouthfeel of products closer to what consumers expect from traditional sugar. Effective blending of these can significantly improve the quality of sweetness, enhance sweet/sour balance, and deliver a more robust flavour, which are all critical sensory characteristics for a product. Since each glycoside hits the mouth differently, the combination creates a whole-mouth sweetness closest to that of sugar.
Glyvia™ delivers a unique, full-mouth sweetness similar to that of sugar and without the bitter aftertaste of stevia.
Why is your sodium content so high?
Sodium is the most important electrolyte for hydration as it helps your body retain water. Sodium is lost during physical activity and replacing it is vital for optimal performance. Much of the research coming out lately shows that we need more sodium in our diets (but not from processed or junk foods). We do realize that, on the advice of their doctor, some people have to monitor their sodium intake, which is why we loudly and proudly put our sodium content on the front of each package.
What kind of sweetener do you use?
We use a natural, plant-based sweetener called Glyvia™ that has been approved as natural product by Health Canada. Glyvia is a patented complex of amino acetic acid, also known as glycine, and a variety of plant glycosides that deliver a sugar-like taste with zero-calories and no aftertaste.
Honestly, what makes Insaltd different?
Actually, there are 3 things that make us different.
- High-Potency Electrolyte Blend: 900mg Sodium, 300mg Potassium, 100mg Magnesium and 18mg of Calcium to dramatically enhance fluid absorption and nervous system function
- Robust Natural Flavors that pair well with salts to make it deliciously easy to drink more electrolyte-rich water.
- Glyvia: Zero-calorie Plant-based Sweetener that helps with nutrient absorption and blood sugar management for better hydration than is possible from sugar, stevia or artificial sweeteners.
I have food allergies. Is Insaltd safe for me?
Our ingredients are very clean with no known allergens. Insaltd has zero-gluten, zero-sugar and zero-artificial sweeteners.

How many Insaltd servings can I have in a day?
It really depends on your activity level, diet and your overall health. We have found that starting the day with a glass of Insaltd electrolytes helps replenish the fluids lost during the night. You can do the same with a pinch of sea salt and a squeeze of lemon in a glass of water. If you’re an athlete, work in the hot sun or even if you just get thirsty a lot, taking an electrolyte rich beverage can be really helpful.
Of course, if you have any doubts, consult your healthcare professional before making any drastic changes to your diet.
