Has a strenuous workout ever left you feeling rough? Chances are you’re just dehydrated. Consuming the proper amount of water in a day your body requires can be a hassle, let alone on the days you’re hitting the gym. Lucky for you I have an easy solution that will help keep you from being dehydrated.
It’s called Liquid I.V. and it’s a lifesaver. After each workout, or whenever I’ve slacked a bit in the water department, I use one packet of Liquid I.V. to rehydrate my body. Just one packet can provide the same hydration as drinking 2-3 bottles of water, which is just about a quarter of the amount of water you should be consuming in a day.
Before using Liquid I.V. I would suffer from headaches and exhaustion after workouts, which are common side effects of dehydration. I’ve found taking it immediately after my Orange Theory Fitness class I feel energized and am no longer suffering from day interrupting headaches.
The way Liquid I.V. is able to work so well is all thanks to Cellular Transport Technology (CTT), a special ratio of potassium, sodium, and glucose that help deliver water and key nutrients to your bloodstream. An even more scientific explanation: CTT creates an osmotic force that allows water to be absorbed in the upper digestive tract, rather than it passing through your digestive system losing vital nutrients.
This new tool in my daily life has kept me hydrated and feeling great even on my non-workout days. It’s become a vital part of my life and love telling others about it, especially those who might be dehydrated from a little too much alcohol the night before. Yes, it works wonders for hangovers, too!
