Staying hydrated during a dirt bike race, enduro, hare scrambe, dual sport, or just play riding with buddies is important especially on those hot summer days. Most experts say the best time to start hydrating before a race or ride is about 2 hours to give the body time to absorb the water and electrolytes. Now if you are like me no longer 18 and like to hang out with buddies at the night before a ride then you might start that night after having a few beers.
Okay let’s get down to it in the past I have tried different products like Gatorade, water bottle flavor packets, and even Pedialyte. Personally, I felt like Pedialyte worked the best but never liked the taste and at around $5 the cost to taste just didn’t do it for me so I usually drank a Gatorade. Recently I got back into the water bottle flavor packets during covid when finding Gatorade was hard and came across a product called Liquid IV.
First, I started using it after my workouts just to give the water some flavor and was amazed that they tasted good and I really felt like it helps with hydration. Since then, I have tried about 3 flavors and below are my break downs of each flavor I have tried and will add to the list as I test new flavors. If you have tried this product and have some input comment below, I would love to hear about your experience. Keep in mind Liquid IV does not pay me or the site for this review.
More info links will take you to Amazon to purchase. I recommend trying them out by buying a few on Amazon in smaller quantities then heading to Costco to buy them in bulk at a discounted rate.
Strawberry Hydration Multiplier– More Info
This is by far my favorite when it comes to taste and hydration felling after drinking it. If you want to start off on a single flavor this is the one I suggest.
Immune Support Tangerine– More Info
This one I bought to get a different flavor and if I’m around someone sick it can’t hurt to take a little more precautions. The taste is good but I not a huge fan of fruity fruits so I only use this one when needed.
Energy Multiplier Pineapple– More Info
I purchased this one to help replace my diet Coke addiction when I needed an afternoon energy boost. It actually works pretty well they say its comparable to an 8oz cup of coffee and I agree it does give you energy. The pineapple flavor is a little sweet for me, but I just dilute is a little with more water.
