9 Reasons for Good Hydration

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH

Human beings are mostly water. Newborn babies are about 78 percent water. A toddler is about 65 percent water. A grown man is about 60 percent; a woman is about 55 percent. Why are these stats important? As we age, we start to shrivel and dry up (you know it’s true!) and efficient hydration becomes even more critical not only for good health, but youthful looking skin, too.

How much water should you drink? One nutritionist we spoke with recommends that you drink about half your body weight each day. That means a 140-pound woman needs 70 ounces per day. Why so much? You absorb only about 20 percent of the water you take in. But not to worry. We found a solution to help multiply your hydration: introducing Liquid I.V., the non-GMO electrolyte drink mix that hydrates you two to three times faster than water alone, helping your body function at a more optimal level.

Here’s what proper hydration can do for your body:

  • Support proper digestion
  • Lubricate joints
  • Enhance mental clarity
  • Increase performance
  • Fights jet lag
  • Help burn more calories
  • Reduce signs of aging
  • Regulate temperature
  • Assist in the manufacture of hormones and neurotransmitters

Even low-level dehydration can make you feel tired; bring on a headache or nausea; or cause dizziness, muscle cramps, or brain fog — all signals from your body that you need more water. That’s where Liquid I.V. comes in.

How Does Liquid I.V. Work?

What’s in play here can be summed up with one word: science.

Liquid I.V.’s Cellular Transport Technology (CTT)™ uses a specific ratio of sodium, glucose, and potassium to deliver water and other key nutrients directly to your bloodstream, hydrating you faster and more efficiently than water alone. Translation: Liquid I.V. can help combat dehydration caused by intense physical exertion, active lifestyles, air travel, and even alcohol consumption.

And before you scoff at the idea of adding a bit of sugar and salt to your diet, let us explain. Those ingredients are not there for flavor; they’re key to function.

The benefits are twofold: Not only does Liquid I.V. use clean and simple ingredients, but this hydration solution is also vegan, dairy free, gluten free, and soy free. With more vitamin C than an orange, more potassium than a banana, and 110 percent of a day’s recommended B vitamins, Liquid I.V.’s Hydration Multiplier is a portable and convenient solution that can be stashed in your gym bag, handbag, or desk drawer. By simply adding one Liquid I.V. serving to a 16-ounce bottle of water, you can provide your body with the same hydration as drinking two to three bottles of water.

Best of all, every time you place an order on its website, Liquid I.V. donates one serving of the product to help hydrate someone in need around the world.
