How does SkyMD work?
SkyMD uses a proprietary blend of sodium, glucose, magnesium, potassium, and chloride to hydrate you faster and more effectively.
Why sodium and glucose, aka salt and sugar? Isn’t that unhealthy?
Sodium and glucose are a crucial part of efficiently delivering the goodness of water into your system.
SkyMD adds more sodium and glucose molecules into the bloodstream, which allows water to move into the bloodstream via osmosis.
Our formula provides the minimum amount of sodium and glucose to hydrate you faster.
What else does SkyMD contain?
Besides water, sodium, and glucose, our full ingredient list can be found here.
How do skyMD electrolytes work?
Electrolytes in general are minerals that dissolve in water. More specifically, we use electrolytes that you may recognize — glucose, sodium, magnesium, and potassium — to help you absorb more of what replenishes you.
What is hydration boost technology?
Hydration Boost Technology, or HBT, is the unique delivery system we use to enhance rapid absorption of water and other ingredients into your bloodstream.
When you drink plain water, it fails to penetrate the cell barrier and passes right through your digestive system. After countless experiments, our Hydration Boost Technology uses a ratio of sodium, glucose, magnesium, and potassium to allow osmosis to insert key ingredients into your bloodstream before it reaches your digestive system.
SODIUM + POTASSIUM + GLUCOSE + MAGNESIUM + WATER = HBT
HBT is an expedited water delivery system in your body, which is why it hydrates you better and faster.
Why does skyMD electrolytes contain high levels of sodium?
Sodium is one of the most important ingredients in Hydration Boost Technology, which allows your body to absorb more nutrients from the fluids you drink.
When it comes to dehydration, not all electrolytes are created equal. We've come to think of sodium as bad, but the human body is 60% salt water. Sodium is, in fact, the critical electrolyte for dehydration recovery. It promotes better fluid intake, helps maintain greater fluid volume, and lowers urine output. Problem is, sodium has a tough time getting through the small intestine on its own.
Why does skyMD electrolytes contain sugar?
Glucose helps sodium get from the small intestine into the bloodstream through a mechanism called the sodium-glucose cotransport system. While some electrolyte products boast about being sugar-free, without glucose, this natural system simply doesn't work. Instead of adding unnecessary sugar, we include just enough glucose to keep this molecular team running smoothly.
Much like sodium, sugar is also a key component to Hydration Boost Technology for allowing more absorption of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients into your body.
Can skyMD electrolytes be compared with IV therapy drips?
While SkyMD is not equivalent to an IV drip that you’d receive at a clinic, but it is certainly a comparable option when considering a more portable and convenient alternative.
Is skyMD a good alternative to traditional IVs?
skyMD is a good alternative to traditional IV therapy for mild to moderate dehydration, but you should always consult a healthcare professional for severe dehydration.
Does skyMD packaging contain BPA?
SkyMD packaging is sustainably sourced and does not contain BPA.
Is skyMD electrolytes safe from allergens?
SkyMD electrolytes are safe for anyone to consume!
But our formulas are manufactured in a facility which processes milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soybeans, and sesame.
