It's hot, sports are in full swing, and you probably aren't drinking enough water. Remember when energy drinks, electrolyte drinks, and other products became popular? Now there are a few better options that can fit right in your gym bag, purse, or pocket!

Recently I have had several friends introduce me to a few different hydration packets. Similar to a flavor you'd put in your water bottle but these are full of vitamins and electrolytes! They are all about the same cost and you can get most on Amazon, too.

One of the first products I heard about was HYDRATE. I actually have tried this and love it. You ever hear that saying, "I can party like I used to, I just don't recover like I used to?" Yep, that's me and my friends. It takes us longer to regroup after a girls weekend. We drank these before bed and first thing the next morning and we were as good as new! The original is my favorite but they are all good. Rich in potassium and no additives such as sugars or chemicals, this is my go to.

One that I haven't tried but I know my husband would love is a product by Wilderness Athlete. It's literally called, Hydrate & Recover. To me this one is just more masculine but essentially the same thing.

A friend of mine works a busy job and is in and out the door and always forgets to drink water. Then she got a terrible kidney infection that almost made her stay in the hospital. Thankfully she found this brand of Liquid I.V. and swears by it! All you do is add it to your water. With the technology/science behind it, you are going to sleep better, feel better, and be more productive! Luckily it comes in a variety of flavors so you can choose what you like!
