Five reasons why Hydrant is better than whatever you’re drinking

The reality is that most people do not drink enough water. From moderate signs (dry mouth or cracked lips) to severe ones (dizziness or diarrhea), dehydration displays in many ways. We all know the fix for dehydration is staying hydrated. But how?

If you’re like me, you’ve downloaded one of those apps that reminds you to drink more water. Still, you find yourself lightheaded, fatigued, and you’ve stopped paying attention to the app’s notifications. I recently discovered that it doesn’t have to be this way. There’s something better. 

Here are five reasons why you should drink Hydrant.

Healthier Alternative to Sports Drinks

With fewer calories and less sugar, think of Hydrant as a healthier alternative to the market’s traditional carb-based sugary sports drinks. Hydrant’s primary focus is hydration. Paired with an activity like working out, or just as a morning pick me up (or to help you recover from last night’s festivities), Hydrant will keep you feeling at your best with nothing more than the ingredients your body needs to perform.

The versatility of Hydrant makes it ideal for everyone, from the work-from-home product specialist to the workout enthusiast. But don’t just take my word for it, check out the information Hydrant provides here

Science-based hydration offering

John Sherwin is the co-founder of Hydrant. He also happens to be an Oxford graduate. While at Oxford, Sherwin studied Biology. During his time there, he became interested in finding a solution to the hydration-related ailments he continually faced. 

After finishing his studies, Sherwin moved to San Francisco and set out to create a perfect mixture of science-backed nutrients to put into the first batches of Hydrant. He settled on 200 milligrams of potassium (K) and 260 milligrams of sodium (NA) mixed with a lemon-lime powder to make Hydrant’s first concoction. In addition to the NA and the K, Hydrant combines glucose with water to speed up the body’s osmosis rate. 

Flavor varieties that work

Hydrant has come a long way since the original Lemon-Lime mixture that Sherwin developed. Now, you can choose from Lime, Blood Orange, Grapefruit, Orange Mango, Iced Tea Lemonade, and Fruit Punch. Using only natural flavors and real fruit juice powders and cane sugar, Hydrant avoids using any of those dietary sweeteners like Stevia or erythritol that leave a funny taste in your mouth. Hydrant is always looking to add new flavors, so be sure to see what else they’re offering at

Easy to pack

I often wonder how I can carry all the things I need without worrying about whether something was going to spill in my bag or fall out of my pocket. Coffee mugs that don’t seal. Bottle lids that crack in transit. Something is always at risk of making a mess. 

Not Hydrant. Their secure easy-to-open packets mean that this is a product you can carry with you, in your pocket, or your bag, without worrying that it’ll make a mess. Simply add it to water when you’re ready to drink and bring on the hydration. 

Ditch your morning coffee 

I read stories that suggest Hydrant is best consumed when you wake up, to replenish your electrolytes lost overnight. But I was worried. If you’re like me, mornings are for coffee, or more accurately: mornings are for caffeine. I know all the studies that say that coffee actually dehydrates you more, but I just need the boost that the beans offer. The good news is that Hydrant offers Hydrant+. Mixed perfectly to combine rapid hydration with supreme caffeination, Hydrant+ replaces the need to brew that coffee in the morning. 

Instead, open a pack of Hydrant+, pour in the water, and voila: Instant hydration and caffeination. 

Last but not least, if you subscribe to Hydrant now, you can get your day’s hydration requirement for less than $1 a day. So what are you waiting for?
