These are the companies that are detailed below for electrolyte powders.

- Dr. Berg

- Key Nutrients

Nutrients per Serving
The 3 big keto electrolytes are magnesium, potassium and sodium. Therefore, this table provides a side by side view of these nutrients in each company.
When it comes to buying products, price always plays a role, especially when you are on a budget. Since creating this post, these are the prices given on Amazon.
Price per Nutrient
When I compare what electrolytes to buy, I want to know the cost of each nutrient per serving. So, that's what I have in this table.
When you are drinking these electrolyte powders, flavor matters. Variety also matters, as drinking the same thing daily, can get boring.
Other Nutrients & Amounts
A lot of the time these powders also provide you with more minerals and other nutrients aside from the main 3 keto electolytes. Below is a listing of these for each company.
A lot of the time these powders also include other ingredients, aside from nutrients. This table provides you with these ingredients.
When you are eating a ketogenic diet, knowing total carbs is important, especially when you are drinking them. From this list of electrolyte powders, there are only 2 that have some carbs.
Keto Logic has less than 1 carbs. LMNT has 2 carbs for their two favored options. Zip Fizz has 1-3 carbs.
Forms of Potassium
There are more than one form of potassium, so I wanted to provide you what each company used in their electrolyte powders.
- Real Lyte: citrate and Redmond's Real Salt
- Keto Vitals: citrate and chloride
- Dr. Berg: citrate
- Ultima: phosphate and aspartate
- Kiss My Keto: citrate and chloride
- Key Nutrients: phosphate and aspartate
- Keto Logic: citrate
- LMNT: citrate
- Zip Fizz: carbonate and bicarbonate
Forms of Magnesium
Since there are a lot of different forms of magnesium, I wanted to show you what each company used. Magnesium citrate is the most popular form that is used.
The other forms of magnesium in these electloylte powders are malate, amino acid chelate, and bisglycinate chelate.
- Real Lyte: citrate
- Keto Vitals: bisglycinate chelate and citrate
- Dr. Berg: citrate
- Ultima: citrate
- Kiss My Keto: citrate
- Key Nutrients: citrate
- Keto Logic: magnesium amino acid chelate
- LMNT: malate
- Keto K1000: citrate
- Zip Fizz: magnesium amino acid chelate
If you consume too much Mg citrate at one time, you will be, well, running to the bathroom, due to a laxative affect in high doses (1). Some people can build up a tolerance for it. Myself personally, I can't handle a lot at one time.
For example, I can take in 60mg of magnesium citrate in the Re-Lyte powder, but I struggle consuming 100 mg in the Key Nutrients powder. However, I am also fine when I use Keto Vitals. This is probably the case because of the bisglcinate form in the mix.
Everyone is different though. I have friends that can handle Key Nutrients with no problem at all.
However, though, it's been shown that magnesium citrate is easily absorbed by your body (2).
Magnesium Amino Acid Chelate
When the magnesium is chelated to an amino acid in this form, it provides for better absorption in your body (5).
Magnesium Bisglycinate Chelate
Where to Buy
The most common place to buy all of these are on Amazon. I have each of them linked for your convience.
If you did want to purchase the Re-Lyte, I do have a 15% off code (KKN15) if you purchase from their site.
From the photos on this page, you can clearly see which products I have myself and have tried. I do have my favorites for different reasons. Personally, I like having a combination of electrolyte powders.
My reasons will not be the same as yours. I also have not tried all of the powders yet. For these reasons, I have not choosen to say that I like one brand over the other.
These recipes below use some of these keto electrolyte powders.
