Heavy Metals in SALTT electrolytes – or lack thereof

Our SALTT electrolytes are manufactured using salt water that is taken from Utah’s Great Salt Lake and purified and refined. Some are made mostly with the naturally occurring Magnesium Chloride, while others are mostly there for the Socium Chloride (aka: “salt”) but the question comes up: how do we ensure that heavy metals and other potentially problematic compounds aren’t getting into our electrolytes?

Every batch is tested for heavy metal content to ensure it meets our standards. We also have the final finished product tested to ensure it does not require a California Proposition 65 warning. We are happy to report that all of the tests show that SALTT Electrolyte Drink Mix is below the “Safe Harbor” No Significant Risk Levels (NSRLs) and Maximum Allowable Dose Levels (MADLs), meaning it does not require a warning to California residents.

The Great Salt Lake itself makes sure that heavy metals settle to the bottom of the lake – it’s literally a giant settling pond, while the minerals that we want (potassium, sodium, and magnesium) stay dissolved and ready for use. Don’t forget: if you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the precipitate #ScienceDadJoke
