Trace Minerals in SALTT Electrolytes

Sure, your body needs a good chunk of sodium, but it’s not the only player in the game. We knew we had to step up and offer a balanced formula—and we didn’t just stop there. Along with the big three (sodium, potassium, and magnesium), SALTT packs in other trace minerals. These under-the-radar minerals are crucial for your body, even if they don’t get the spotlight as often.

Essential Trace Minerals


Here are some of the trace elements you’ll find in SALTT that are considered essential by the United States Food and Drug Administration:

  • Chromium: Helps control blood sugar and metabolism function.
  • Copper: Plays a role in energy production, metabolism, and more.
  • Iron: Needed to make red blood cells and also contributes to muscle growth.
  • Manganese: Has a number of roles in metabolism, bone health, and healing.
  • Molybdenum: Essential for enzyme production.
  • Phosphorus: Used by your body for energy production and storage, activating hormones, and more.
  • Selenium: An essential antioxidant that aids with immune function, reproduction, and thyroid function.
  • Zinc: Growth and development, immune function, nervous system function, reproduction.

What about Celtic salt or Himalayan salt?

Celtic and Himalayan salts often get hyped for their trace minerals. Let’s break it down:

  • Celtic Salt: This salt is basically wetter than others, which means you’re paying for a lot of water. Claims of “80 minerals” are thrown around, but good luck finding any legit list of these minerals from Celtic salt companies.
  • Pink Himalayan Salt: Mined in Pakistan, its pink hue comes from trace iron. It might contain other trace minerals, but here’s the kicker: a lot of what's sold as Himalayan salt is just dyed table salt. Want to check if it’s legit? Dissolve some in water. If there’s no sandy grit left behind, it’s probably fake.

How does SALTT compare?

SALTT isn’t your average electrolyte mix. Besides sodium, we pack in a hefty dose of magnesium and potassium for a well-rounded formula—way better than just dumping salt in your water.

Our minerals come straight from the Great Salt Lake, a natural treasure trove of magnesium and trace minerals. That means no need for artificial additives. Everything is naturally occurring and easy for your body to absorb, ensuring you get the maximum benefit.
