A silly question about gritty mix?

I don't use gritty mix, in fact, I only found out about gritty mix since discovering this forum last year. After finding the recipe for it, I understand it contains 3 ingredients in equal volumn: bark fines, turface and grit. And from many advice here, it seems that the reason for using it is its free draining ability. Now my question is, why needing 3 ingredients for gritty mix? Can I use just one ingredient, for example, just total grit for growing succulents?
