Why Electrolytes Are Important

  Electrolytes, substances that produce an electrically conducting solution when dissolved in water, are vital for the normal functioning of the human body. They regulate our blood pH, blood pressure, nerve and muscle function, hydration and rebuild damaged tissue. Electrolytes are literally electric in that they have an electric charge. When dissolved in water they separate into positive and negative charged ions. Because the nerves of our bodies signal to one another through a process of chemical exchanges dependent on these oppositely charged ions found both outside and inside your cells, appropriate electrolyte levels are crucial. If electrolyte levels are off, it can lead to weak muscles or muscles that contract too severely. Kept constant by our kidneys and several hormones, our electrolyte levels tend to change when our level of hydration goes up or down. As we sweat and urinate we lose electrolytes, mainly sodium and potassium, so they must be replaced by the foods we eat such as fresh fruits and vegetables. If we don’t consume the necessary levels, there can be serious health consequences. When electrolytes are out of whack due to altered levels of magnesium, sodium , potassium, phosphorus, chloride or calcium you may experience the following symptoms. . .
  • Irregular heartbeat
  • Weakness
  • Numbness
  • Twitching
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion
  • Convulsions
  • Blood pressure changes
  • Seizures
Several conditions and health problems can bring on an imbalance of electrolytes, such as kidney disease, prolonged periods of vomiting, severe dehydration, heatwaves, congestive heart failure and cancer treatment. Also some drugs like ACE inhibitors and diuretics can mess with your levels. One study revealed that 20% of patients who were prescribed diuretics for high blood pressure or a heart condition had reduced potassium and sodium levels. re:iimmune® is a water-based solution for drinking which provides Clinical Strength Hydration® with a rich package of health-supporting ingredients. We’ve included electrolytes like chloride, sodium and potassium to help keep your body in balance. This unique combination has been specifically formulated to help you get better, better!

Cholera Outbreak in Haiti – re:iimmune Relief Effort

photo-3-1170x500 Friends, Haiti needs our help! After the recent devastation of Hurricane Matthew, Haiti’s citizens are facing a terrible outbreak of cholera as reported by news outlets such as nbcnews.com. Cholera is a an aggressive diarrhoeal infection caused by ingesting food or water contaminated with the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. People who have been infected begin to show symptoms within 12 hours and 5 days after exposure. Cholera can cause severe acute watery diarrhea which leads to dehydration. In severe cases it can kill within hours if left untreated. The bacteria remains present in feces for 1-10 days after infection and are then shed back into the environment, potentially infecting more people. Our partners, Convoy of Hope and Project Hope have boots on the ground in Haiti. They are providing water and supplies within their relief efforts, but water alone is not enough. re:iimmune’s hydrobiotic technology is clinical strength hydration with intestinal immune support, the very thing to aid in relief efforts when IV’s are scarce and a rampant spread of intestinal disease is ever present. Through re:immune’s Get Well, Make Well  program, we have donated over 120,000 servings of life saving hydrobiotics to date through Convoy of Hope. We have donated 4,000 servings to Haiti so far, but to reach more people we need your help! We have set up a page over on generosity.com that enables you to directly buy 1 box, ½ of a case or a full case as a donation to the people of Haiti. With each purchase, we will donate extra servings as well!

Back on my A Game!

Why Wednesday

 

vivian_whywednesday"As a hairstylist and make-up artist, I spend most of my days on my feet rushing around, and I rarely have a chance to even slow down long enough to take a drink of water or eat a full meal. I love my job, and I am passionate about creating art with my clients, but the toll it takes on my body is unavoidable. Days when I’m feeling especially run down, dehydrated and fatigued, one glass of re:iimmune will put me right back on my A game. When my husband has clients in town, his job is to entertain them, so after a long day of work when the only thing my body wants me to do is relax and recuperate, re:iimmune gives me the refreshment and stamina to socialize without winding up sick the next day!"

Although re:iimmune® was originally created specifically with illness recovery in mind, the truth is, re:iimmune® is a recovery product on a much broader spectrum than just "illness"! Whether you sit at a desk all day and struggle with stress headaches and a poor diet, you travel for a living and find it challenging to maintain optimal hydration and nutritional levels, or possibly you've even chosen a career as the operations manager of your own household- folding laundry, preparing meals, wiping runny noses and changing dirty diapers- all these tasks make it difficult to remember your allotted glasses of water for that day, much less time to squeeze in three full, nutritious meals. Whatever your responsibilities may be, re:iimmune® helps fill in the gaps that result from a busy lifestyle and often times leave you lacking the essentials your body requires most to maintain a strong immune system and healthy stamina.

Dehydration alone can cause a myriad of unpleasant symptoms that will leave your body and mind dragging behind. Just a few of it's most common side affects range from headaches, migraines, and muscle cramps- to brain fog, irritability and fatigue- in other words, dehydration can dramatically slow you down and reduce productivity. When your digestive system isn't being fed the proper nutrients it needs in order to grow the healthy bacteria that lines your intestinal wall and keeps everything functioning properly, it begins to break down. In turn this affects everything from your immune system (in fact, 75% of your immune system is found in the digestive tract), to your state of mind and ability to perform daily tasks. re:iimmune®'s Hydrobiotic™ formula combines Clinical Strength Hydration™ with a potent blend of pre and probiotics that aid in balancing out your gut health. If you feel like you need a little boost to get you back on your A game, re:iimmune® may be just what you need to get better, better!™ With it's easily transportable packaging, all you need to do is keep a few packets of re:iimmune®'s dry powder mix in your purse or pockets, and reach for one the next time you start to feel yourself fading. Before you know it you'll be back on your feet and ready to take on the next challenge that comes your way!

What is a Hydrobiotic™?

When you make new things, you get to make up new words- so that’s what we did! Dr. Kerri Miller created a mighty combination of Clinical Strength Hydration®, and a multi strain pre and probiotic blend containing a special combination of 14 different probiotics and one prebiotic (the food probiotics require in order to flourish). When you look at the various keys to recovery, you’ll see that very high up on the list sit both hydration and intestinal health. Alongside these two vital components of recovery, you’ll also see adequate rest, a healthy diet, exercise, and a positive mindset listed.

Dr. Miller saw a missing piece in our healthcare system after working in it for over 20 years. We weren’t providing adequate means for our patients to stay hydrated and improve their intestinal health in an easy and accessible way, so she did something about it! She began her journey to create a solution, the first oral Hydrobiotic™. The first and foremost portion of this equation is “Hydro”, which represents the Clinical Strength Hydration® formula found in re:iimmune®. It is the first sugar free hydration pack made for rapid hydration needs. The “biotic” in Hydrobiotic™ stands for, you guessed it, probiotics! Not only did Dr. Miller witness her patients struggling to stay hydrated, but many medicines given in critical situations such as cancer, surgery and chronic illness, take costly tolls on your digestive health.

The pre and probiotic blend in re:iimmune® was especially formulated to promote restoration of the beneficial gut flora (good bacteria) that keep your digestive system balanced and functioning properly. L-Glutamine is an amino acid found in re:iimmune® that has more than one purpose, not only is it a co-transporter that helps your cells absorb hydration quicker, but it also helps rebuild healthy tissue in your intestinal wall. The ginger extract found in re:iimmune® boosts immunity, aids in digestive health and also reduces nausea. In cases of chemotherapy patients, antibiotic use and pregnancy, nausea is a common symptom and ginger is a safe solution. As you see, the Hydrobiotic™ formula in re:iimmune® represents it’s core combination of both hydration and probiotic supplementation, but the moving parts that make re:iimmune® the best way to get better, better™ are vast!

Support Your Body’s Hydration and Immune System Needs

support hydration drink water The “S” in our G.U.T.S. motto, is the glue that holds it all together, or should I say; it’s the glue that holds us together physically- Support Your Body’s Hydration and Immune System Needs. When re:iimmune® was created, it was backed by the passion of a woman who had witnessed the tragedy of young children losing their lives to dehydration and poor gut health all around the world. Witnessing this opened her eyes to the desperate need for an effective solution. Those of us living in developed countries have regular access to clean drinking water, and yet it’s still not uncommon to hear of dehydration related deaths in our own communities. There are hundreds of books addressing the general decline on our digestive health as a community, the effects our digestive system has on our overall well-being, and the factors that play into maintaining a healthy gut, as well. Our bodies are more than 60% water, our brains and muscles are nearly 75% water- without adequate hydration our muscles slow down, our brains lose clarity and eventually our body stops functioning completely. When it comes to diarrhoeal disease, or excessive water loss, it takes more than just water to restore your hydration to a safe level. The science that went into creating our Clinical Strength Hydration® formula, truly makes re:iimmune® the ultimate rehydration drink on the market. With its calculated amount of sodium and L-Glutamine that efficiently pull water directly into your cells, re:iimmune® provides rapid relief from dehydration without the harmful effects of extra sugar and sugar substitutes that some more commonly known hydration drinks are otherwise loaded with. support, immunity and hydration Hydration is a key component to our body’s ability to heal itself, but what makes re:iimmune®’s enhanced immunity boosting power come full circle is it’s blend of 14 probiotics and 1 prebiotic that work together to promote healthy gut flora, and work to rebuild your gut health in order to help you absorb the nutrients you need in to regain your strength after feeling unwell. Web MD states states that some evidence suggests it’s not the presence or absence of one particular type of bacteria that makes a microbiome a healthy one, but rather the diversity of bacteria. The L-Glutamine paired with this multi strain probiotic supplement, has a two prong approach, not only does it aid as a co transporter by pulling hydration into your cells, it also adds benefit by repairing the tissue in your damaged intestinal wall after a bout of constipation or diarrhea. The truth is, our medical community has only touched the tip of the iceberg when it comes to discovering the impact hydration and gut health has on our well-being, and we are excited to be along for the journey! Our number one passion is to help you get better, better™!
