Oral IV Hydration

Hiking with me can be “interesting”. Suddenly you get samples tossed at you and a camera pointed in your direction. Just remember that…you are fair game in gear and food testing 😉

Oral IV Rapid Hydration Ultra Concentrate…a hydration aid of electrolytes, minerals and purified water. It isn’t an energy drink nor is it a sport drink. It is a small tube, that you can swallow straight and follow up with water, or mix in with with 16 ounces of water and sip as needed.

Let’s just say that us hikers look nothing like all the buff types on their ads, but hey, at least we got outside and sweated up a bunch before testing.

Janelle went first:

Thoughts? It has nearly no flavor straight, just a light salty flavor. Easy to carry, no sweeteners, no caffeine, just a boost for staying hydrated. And for long hikes, that isn’t a bad thing. Is it worth trying? I’ll leave that up to the user.
