What is LektroLykes   ?

LektroLykes™ was created by a Gastroenterologist to promote a healthier electrolyte balance in situations where additional potassium, sodium, and bicarbonates are needed, but without creating a salty, unpleasant taste when added to other existing solutions.

Why LektroLykes  ?


Electrolytes such as sodium, potassium and magnesium are required to maintain adequate hydration and proper acid/base (pH) balance in the human body. Loss of these essential minerals in vomiting, diarrhea, or excessive sweating can lead to dehydration, muscle cramps, and serious pH imbalance. 


Most rehydration powders and sports drinks are designed to replace the electrolyte losses that typically occur from sweating, and do not contain enough potassium, sodium, or bicarbonates to replace the electrolyte losses that occur in diarrhea. 


Unfortunately, adding additional electrolytes to a solution creates a salty taste that then requires additional sugar or artificial sweeteners to improve palatability.

Better hydration is now possible without the salty taste!

LektroLykes™ is a proprietary blend of electrolytes and the prebiotic sugar alcohol Xylitol that, when reconstituted in water or other appropriate beverage, has a taste and clarity approaching that of natural water. 


Potential Uses

LektroLykes™ is a neutral-tasting, multi-use source of electrolytes that can be used in any clinical situation in which additional sodium, potassium or bicarbonates would be helpful, but without creating a salty and disagreeable taste. Potential uses could include:



LektroLykes™ can be mixed with MiraLAX ® or other generic PEG when used for acute or chronic constipation, for a more electrolyte-balanced purge. 



A single package of LektroLykes™ reconstituted with one 4.1 oz. bottle of 7 dose MiraLAX ® (119 gm.) and water can be used as a simple neutral-tasting 4 glass colon cleanser. 



A single package of LektroLykes™ added to 32 oz. of any Sports Drink can be used to more closely approximate the electrolyte losses that occur in diarrhea.   


Who is LektroLykes   for?

It is becoming increasingly apparent that maintaining a rich and diversified colon microbiome plays an important role in the prevention and treatment of the diseases that plague modern man, including obesity, diabetes, autoimmune disease, and mood disorders.  There are an estimated 83.1 million millennials in the United States alone, or 25% of the US population. Dramatic increases in colon cancer have already been observed in this age group, 1:5 struggle with depression, and obesity rates as high as 70% have been projected in the near future.  Imbalances in the microbiome have been implicated as a major contributor in each of these looming health threats.  


LektroLykes™  can be used as part of a gentle colon cleansing regimen to take prior to attempting to restore a healthier microbiome with diet, fermented foods, and judicious use of selected supplements and probiotics.  


Did You Know?

LektroLykes™ contains twice as much potassium and 30% more sodium than the typical Sport’s Beverage, as well as also providing bicarbonates to counter the acidosis that can occur from severe diarrhea. 


By adding one package of LektroLykes™  to a 32 oz. bottle of Gatorade , an electrolyte balance closer to the WHO rehydration formula for cholera has now been created, and all without altering the taste of the original solution.
