Alexander Langella –
This came highly recommended, and I see it in Costco a lot. I needed to get some hydration packets as I sweat a lot these days and lose a lot of trace minerals, salts, etc. So I purchased this along with several other options.
I wish I could give a half star, as it should be 3.5, but the downsides are too much to allow for 4, so 3 it is.
1 – WAY too much sugar. 11grams is a LOT. Granted it’s organic pure cane sugar, which is a step up from what most major brand sports drinks offer, but as an electrolyte, sugar is the least necessary to replenish for most diets.
2 – Second ingredient is Dextrose, which is fructose corn syrup, or fructose, depending on what it’s made from, but it’s a dried out powdered form of it. It doesn’t indicate the sourcing, but even so, it’s concentrated sugar, and fructose is 1/2 highly toxic. Pared with Sucrose? I’m wondering what the thought process was here in having a secondary sugar product, and having the top two ingredients be sugar. The added sugar makes even less sense when there’s Stevia and Citric acid, so a sweetener and a sweet enhancer. It’s most likely to create a better tasting product to sell more. This is more a marketing tactic than anything, knowing that Gatorade is beloved because it’s essentially sugar water. Problem is this especially makes it something I won’t be purchasing again.
3 – Silicon Dioxide? Why? There’s no need to worry about caking with this, as even if the powder forms a solid bond, when it hits water it separates anyhow. At least this tends to just move through the body, but that’s unnecessary. It’s not inherently bad unless it gets past your gut walls.
4 – Price point? Why so high? It’s a bit insane how expensive this is. Is it sourcing? Is it certain doctors taking a cut of profits? If there’s a valid reason why your brand is so high when others can keep their prices at a reasonable level and still have great sourcing, then I’m all ears (and a far superior product).
So the pros:
1 – Decent Potassium level
2 – I actually prefer the salt levels, but for most Americans this is actually critical, as we’re generally VERY low in Sodium in general. Bad science on the impact of high sodium and correlations to heart attacks (there’s no science on direct causation, and the correlative science is sketchy at best). Though I do eat a lot of salt, I do tend to sweat a LOT, so if this were less sugary, I might reconsider (except the price point is ridiculous). There’s more hard data on low sodium being dangerous, so this is actually a tremendous positive, potentially higher than the decent Potassium levels. Also, if you take a lot of potassium, you need to balance it out and help your body flush extra with extra sodium, as it then flushes out extra electrolytes, and high potassium is very dangerous.
3 – Vitamin’s B3, 6, and 12. Missing the critical 9 though, but good nevertheless. Decent levels, not particularly high compared to other brands but over the recommended levels by a fair amount. Helpful with energy and restoration after a workout (12 helps repair DNA damage).
4 – Vitamin C, but at very low levels. Then again this is mostly for cell repair or if you’ve taken on sickness, and cleaning out unwanted elements in cells (so cell flushing of what’s been repaired). Good to add.
I mean the positives are great, but the price point and high sugar just kill it.
This does seem to hydrate better than just using water alone or normal sports drinks. Bought the passion fruit flavor, but if you are looking for a robust flavored sports drink you won’t find that here. While it does hydrate extremely well, the flavor is somewhat vague and undistinct. There is no color to it when mixed other than making the water a Milky whitish color, so there’s nothing visually to assist to the illusion of flavor. It won’t be your favorite beverage by any stretch, but it will hydrate better than most of the highly flavored sport beverages. Recommended, as it works well, but the taste is not for the faint of heart.
James Skinner –
I wasn’t sold at first bc the price. I figured I wouldn’t knock it til I tried it and I work in a machine shop that gets up to 90-100 degrees on the really hot days. These liquid IV’s keep me hydrated and I don’t have to drink as much water to get there. Don’t think that one of these is all the water you need in a day. U still need to follow whatever guidelines u follow for adequate water consumption. But these kick start staying hydrated from the start of the day and if it gets too hot I might drink another one to replenish electrolytes. Great flavor and less sugar and no dyes compared to sports drinks.
