Mineral Resources International, Inc. (MRI), the manufacturer of elete Electrolyte Add-In™, the electrolyte concentrate that can be used
to add electrolytes to any food or beverage, announced today it is providing a product donation totally more than $5,000 to Floating Doctors, the world’s first globally-mobile, self-contained medical aid and research vessel that will travel to remote islands in the Pacific Ocean and communities in Central America administering free medical care and supplies.
Scope of Donation
elete has donated 2,400 rip packs of elete Electrolyte Add-In that can be mixed with one gallon of water to make pure electrolyte water. In addition, elete is also providing several dozen pocket bottles of its pure electrolyte concentrate.
“A large number of people die every year from dehydration and/or electrolyte imbalance issues,” said Val Anderson, Executive Vice-President and Director of Sales and Marketing. “The study that was done on elete and published in the Journal of Wilderness and Environmental Medicine demonstrated that elete Electrolyte Add-In basically works as a water extender making available water significantly more effective at hydration, all while replacing important electrolytes that are lost through fluid loss. We applaud Floating Doctors in donating their expertise, time, and services to people who are truly in need, and we are happy to support them with free elete electrolyte add in to help in their treatments.”
