BIOLYTE sports drink scores big with golfers

BIOLYTE sports drink is one of the fastest-growing liquid supplements in the golf marketplace.

DELRAY BEACH, Florida – Looking for a different liquid supplement for this summer’s heat on the golf course? Consider, BIOLYTE, which claims to be the world’s first liquid supplement to offer the same benefits of IV rehydration therapy, but in a drinkable form that features three flavors.

Drinking just one bottle of BIOLYTE, according to the company, is the equivalent to consuming 7 ½ sports drinks, but with one third the sugar and only 40 calories. The beverage contains the same amount of electrolytes as in an IV bag.

“Golfers oftentimes forget how easy it is to become dehydrated while playing,” said Dr. Luther Rollins, a Board Certified Anesthesiologist and Pain Specialist practicing in Atlanta who created BIOLYTE. “Being on the golf course for four to five hours can significantly decrease your electrolyte levels, which can lead to fatigue, nausea, and sluggishness. BIOLYTE is a perfect solution for preventing these symptoms of dehydration, and providing golfers with natural energy to remain energized throughout their entire round.”

BIOLYTE, according to Rollins, is similar to how an IV bag works. It uses two different kinds of salts that are key for rapid dehydration relief – Sodium Chloride and Potassium Chloride. Each type of electrolytes, Rollins said, keep more water in your body, thus hydrating you more effectively than plain water.

The natural energy boost comes from the inclusion of vitamins B12, B5, B6, B3 and L-Carnitine. BIOLYTE, according to Rollins, works to fight fatigue, cramps, nausea and even overindulgence.

BIOLYTE recently partnered with the Southeast AJGA (American Junior Golf Association) as the preferred hydration drink, and its three flavors – Citrus, Tropical and Berry – will be available at 40 AJGA tournaments in Florida, Texas, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Arizona. The company also recently announced partnerships with a number of PGA Sections in the South and Southeast as it expands its presence in golf and becomes available in more markets and states.

Currently, BIOLYTE can be found in major grocery chains such as Publix and Krogers, as well as online at Amazon.
