The art of hydration has come a long way in the last century. Not only have we seen the development and advancement of sports hydration drinks, but we’ve also watched more and more companies start to study and create new hydration products.

Today, people have more than just the average bottle of water to choose from when trying to find the best source of hydration powder. Countless beverages line the shelves in the grocery store aisles, and they all claim to be the best hydration drinks available.

How can you choose from all of the different options? How can you determine which products are best for your needs compared to someone else’s? At LIFEAID, we know that shopping for hydration powder takes a lot of time and knowledge that many people don’t have. After all, the average person isn’t spending their Saturday morning learning more about hydration science, but we are, and we’re happy to share what we’ve learned with you.

In this comprehensive buyer's guide to choosing healthy hydration drinks, we’ll cover everything you need to know about the importance of staying hydrated and how to do so with the right drink. We’ll also compare some of the most popular drink options and determine which ones are truly good for you.

To wrap it all up, we’ll discuss our products and why we think you’ll want to add them to your daily hydration plan.

Quick Tip: The LIFEAID GO Collection is a hydrating blend of electrolytes and vitamins for quick on-the-go hydration supplementation; without the added sodium or artificial sweeteners of the competition. Plus you’ll learn how LifeAid Go products offer a range of additional functions beyond typical hydration drinks. Read more about our naturally sweetened zero-sugar hydration boosters below!

New studies by the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine shows that the average male needs to consume 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluid each day to stay adequately hydrated. For females, the magic number is 11.5 cups (2.7 liters). These recommendations are considerably higher than the previous advice of drinking 8 cups (1.9 liters), regardless of sex.

Since the human body is primarily made up of water, it makes sense that we would need to drink so many fluids. After all, the brain and heart are nearly 75% water. If your body starts to become dehydrated, your body’s organs won’t be able to function properly, and you’ll become ill, at best.

The following are just a few signs of dehydration that you could experience:

  • Feeling Thirsty
  • Dry Mouth
  • Dizziness
  • Dark-Colored and Infrequent Urination
  • Fatigue
  • Confusion
  • Increased Heart Rate

Many people think that they don’t need to worry about dehydration unless they are working out, but that’s not the case. It can happen to anyone. Now that you know how much water you should be drinking, you probably realize that you’re falling short, and that’s where hydration drinks come into play.

Most adults are too busy with work, taking care of their families, or socializing. All of these things often come before hydration. It’s something that the majority of people don’t even think about, so they end up only drinking when they eat or feel thirsty—by this time, you’re already starting to dehydrate.

To stay on top of your hydration, choose a drink such as one of our LIFEAID GO products that delivers the most bang for its buck. The goal is to find a beverage that can provide the most hydration benefits in one serving so that you don’t have to worry about falling short, even when you fail to reach your daily recommended fluid intake. We know it’s hard, but it doesn’t have to be when you take the time to choose the best hydration drink for your lifestyle and physical needs.

With a hydration drink, you can expect to see many improvements in your health because they:

  • Remove Waste That Inhibits Your Health and Organ Function.
  • Maintain a Healthy Body Temperature

There are many options when it comes to choosing a rehydration drink. Some of them are specially-formulated products that include artificial sweeteners. Others are more clean hydrating drinks.

However, they all have their unique benefits as well as some disadvantages. We recommend that you try out the following beverages if you are interested in healthy hydration drinks:


It should come as no surprise that water is at the top of our list for rehydration drinks. This comes back to the idea that your body is composed mostly of water, so you need to drink water to keep your cells in good health.

The best thing about water is that it has no extra additives, so it is safe and healthy for a variety of people—even those with dietary restrictions. It’s also readily available and can even be free in some places! All you need is a water bottle and access to a water station.


Many people are surprised to find that milk is on this list of things to drink for hydration. It’s not the first thing that people crave after a hot day in the sun. Still, it’s a great choice because, in addition to being 87% water, it also contains calcium and vitamin D.

Not to mention, it’s a source of protein, so many athletes love to add chocolate to milk for a simple and tasty recovery drink.

Fruit Juice

If you’re lactose intolerant or vegan, you’ll be happy to know that fruit juice is another excellent way to rehydrate your body when you get bored of plain water. You can infuse water with fruit to achieve a better flavor or drink the juice on its own. Either way, you’re still getting water because most fruit juice contains 85% water.

The key is to choose a beverage that is 100% fruit juice. From there, you can choose a drink that has your preferred flavor or extra vitamins you lack. Keep in mind these drinks will also have a lot of sugar, albeit clean, and therefore, it shouldn’t be the only fluid you rely on for hydrating.

Sports Drinks

These beverages are formulated to provide consumers with the optimal blend of electrolytes, water, and carbohydrates so that they can hydrate and refuel. Unless you are participating in an activity that will burn all of the sugar, you’ll want to watch your intake of these drinks as well.


Though tea with caffeine is a great alternative to coffee, its caffeine-free counterparts can be a great alternative to water. No matter which type of tea you prefer, it’s sure to be full of as many hydrating benefits as water.

They even provide you with antioxidants, but we recommend drinking this with caution. Since it’s a diuretic, drinking too much tea can have the opposite effect and lead to dehydration.

Just as there are drinks you should consume for hydration, there are some that you should not. The following are just a few of the drinks we recommend avoiding if you are struggling to reach your daily recommended intake of fluids:


One thing to keep in mind as you choose the best hydration drink is that caffeine causes dehydration. Therefore, caffeinated sodas are on the list of drinks to avoid. Not only do they leave you feeling more thirsty, but they are also packed full of excess sugar and sodium.

These sugars are simple carbohydrates that cause many people to crash, and it’s bad for your teeth. While it’s fine to indulge in this sweet treat every once in a while, you should never rely on it to hydrate your body.


Any kind of liquor, beer, or wine is going to leave you feeling dehydrated. The level of dehydration correlates to the amount of alcohol. If you are drinking hard liquor with a higher percentage of alcohol, you’ll experience more effects of dehydration.

That goes for liquor mixed in cocktails too. Don’t think that the fruit juice will counteract the effects of the alcohol enough to prevent dehydration.


This goes back to the idea that caffeine is a diuretic. If you are drinking more than one cup of coffee a day, you are essentially canceling out the water you’ve been drinking to achieve your daily recommended fluid intake. That means you’ll need to drink more water to make up for it.

If you can’t give up your coffee habit, you should at least consider switching to decaf after you’ve had your first cup.


We know how tempting it can be to go for a glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade after you’ve been out having fun in the sun, but we suggest you reach for the water first. Lemonade is on our list of the worst drinks for hydrating because it is packed with more sugar than other fruit juices.

We know this is to combat the sour taste, but a nice, cold glass of lemon-infused water is a much better and healthier alternative.

Energy Drinks

Finally, we recommend that you stay away from most energy drinks. The average energy drink is not designed to hydrate but to provide energy. That means that the caffeine and fake sugars will work together to dehydrate and leave you feeling fatigued when it all comes crashing down. A clean alternative to these beverages is caffeine from green tea such as the 100% clean caffeine in FITAID Energy.

Water alone does an excellent job of helping the body recover from dehydration quickly, but sometimes it’s missing a few extra ingredients that can propel it. While most water contains minerals, some purified waters are completely missing these nutrients. These ingredients are key to getting the most out of every drop of water you drink.

The minerals are known as electrolytes, and they are often found in some of the other top hydration drinks, such as sports drinks. The exact combination of electrolyte powder found in these drinks can vary from one beverage company to another. They are even more variable in water.

For example, well water could have strong concentrations of one mineral, such as magnesium, and a lesser quantity of others. In another location, the water could be stronger in calcium. Many factors impact the exact electrolyte drink mix that is naturally found in different sources of water.

To understand why so many people rely on electrolyte drinks for dehydration, you must understand what they are and how they aid the process. To start, electrolytes are minerals that develop a positive or negative electrical charge when they are dissolved in water. These electrolytes are found within the body’s bloodstream and other fluids.

The minerals that can become electrolytes include:

  • Sodium
  • Chloride
  • Potassium
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Phosphate

The role of each electrolyte is different, but they are vital to many of the body’s key functions. Some are critical for heart function, while others help carry water into the bloodstream so that it can reach different cells. Sodium is especially useful for maintaining water-fluid balance. Not only does it tell your body when you are thirsty, but it also prevents water intoxication.

Since these electrolytes play such an important role in directing water and other nutrients to different areas of the body, they are especially useful for speeding up the hydration process. When you drink water with electrolytes, you can make sure that your organs get the water they need faster as they are transported with sodium and other electrically charged ions.

It’s worth noting, however, most people don’t need to supplement their diet with sodium in their water. You typically get enough through your regular diet since many foods have added sodium. Consuming too much sodium can be bad for your health, so you may choose a sodium-free electrolyte that many of our LIFEAID Go vitamin blends have.

Though these minerals are found in most water, sometimes it’s necessary to add them. This is especially important for homes that rely on purified water as their main source of hydration. You don’t have to buy a fancy bottle of water to do this, however. It’s simple to add the essential minerals you need by mixing a packet of electrolyte powders into your drinking water. This means you can create clean hydrating drinks with the water straight out of your tap.

Customers especially love that these electrolyte packets can be carried in their gym bags or purse. You can even leave them in your drawer at the office to add a boost of hydration after a long meeting. It’s easy to pull out your favorite water bottle and mix the electrolyte powders on the go so that you always have access to the best hydration water.

It’s important to note that there are a variety of companies offering electrolyte powder solutions for improved hydration. They all have different ingredients to provide unique benefits. You should shop carefully to find the best clean hydration powder for your diet and lifestyle.

Though there are several electrolyte powders in the market, you don’t need to go far to find some of the products that are best for hydration. At LIFEAID, we have worked hard to provide some of our most popular drinks in powder form. However, we’ve taken them to the next level and added those important electrolytes to provide the ultimate hydrating boost.

If you are interested in learning more about the different products we have to offer, keep reading. We’ll tell you more about the best hydration powder options and how they can help you achieve your unique goals.

Electrolyte Powder for Sports Recovery

FITAID GO is the ultimate solution for on-the-go hydration and sports recovery. Each packet is specially formulated to provide the perfect blend of herbs, vitamins, and nutrients to support the health and fitness goals of athletes in need of fast hydration. Specifically, this lemon-lime blend contains key electrolytes, but you won’t find any sodium.

This means the hydration solution is great for people who are concerned with getting too much sodium from their diet. Although it doesn’t have sodium or any of the other fake junk, you will find a few other clean additives, such as:

  • Glucosamine & Quercetin
  • BCAAs
  • Turmeric
  • B Complex
  • Green Tea Extract

Electrolyte Powder for Weekend Recovery

There’s no better way to recover after a long weekend of indulging in adult beverages with your friends than by rehydrating. As we mentioned, alcohol acts as a diuretic, which means it causes you to lose a lot of water through urine. Fortunately, PARTYAID GO is the perfect solution to fight off those post-party blues.

You can mix this hydration powder into your favorite water bottle to help with your weekend recovery. Best of all, it doesn’t require a lot of effort, so you can do it even with one eye open. You can also drink it before things get out of hand to help prevent the after-effects.

This product is ideal for weekend recovery because it can be easily packed to take on the go. Whether you’re in for a long weekend of partying in Las Vegas or you expect brunch to get a little wild, this hydration solution can go anywhere with you.

Every packet of this packet is designed to provide restorative hydration through:

  • Milk thistle may protect the liver from toxins in alcohol.
  • 5-HTP that sends messages to the brain to produce serotonin and melatonin.
  • Eleuthero Root that may help regulate your body’s response to stress.
  • Vitamins C & D to speed up your recovery with a boosted immune system.

Electrolyte Powder to Aid in Restful Sleep

In addition, the DREAMAID GO pack is designed to help you fall asleep faster. More importantly, it’s meant to help you stay asleep so that you can wake up feeling restored in the morning. The formula was carefully created to include a balance of herbs, vitamins, and nutrients that help you reach a cozy place for a deep slumber.

We know that sounds too good to be true, but let us explain.

One of the key ingredients in this drink is melatonin. Each serving contains 5mg of this sleeping supplement. Melatonin is critical for signaling to your body that it is time to fall asleep. It’s a hormone that is normally produced in the body, but some people have decreased production for various reasons. For these people, this drink can make a huge difference in getting a good night’s sleep

That’s not the only ingredient that promotes sleep. The formula also includes the following:

  • Chamomile: This herb is essential for calming both your body and mind so that you can get to that place of restfulness as you settle in to go to bed for the night.
  • Valerian: We also included this clean sleep aid that may help you fall asleep faster. It is also believed to help improve the quality of your sleep.
  • Gaba: Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid is a neurotransmitter that aids your body in the process of slowing down to rest.
  • Lemon Balm: It’s hard to sleep when you’re feeling stressed, so we believe the lemon balm is essential in helping you fall asleep quickly.

Best of all, the DREAMAID GO pack is naturally sweetened and flavored, with no sucralose or aspartame, so you don’t have to worry about the burst of energy that other drinks like soda or fruit juices might offer.

Hydration Packets to Boost Immunity

Hydration is key to a strong immune system, so we think it just makes sense to have an electrolyte powder that also fortifies your immunity. IMMUNITYAID GO is a unique combination of echinacea, zinc, and vitamin C. All of these ingredients work together to give your immune system the boost it needs!

Every serving comes with 20x more Vitamin C than you would ever get in one orange. Echinacea is another strategically picked ingredient for the way it boosts the immune system.

In addition, you’ll also find several other vitamins and herbs that are designed to promote health and wellness. These ingredients include:

  • Vitamin D3
  • Magnesium
  • Turmeric
  • Astragalus Root

As much as it is important to focus on the ingredients that we do include in this electrolyte drink, we think it also is worth mentioning the things we leave out. You’ll never find any sucralose or artificial sweeteners. We don’t even add any sugar of any kind.

All of the sugar that is in the 20-calorie packet is from the clean ingredients we use. These products are also keto-friendly, non-GMO, gluten-free, and Kosher, so they are perfect for a variety of diets and lifestyles.

Powder for Focus and Hydration

Finally, we have the best hydration drink to help improve your focus. FOCUSAID GO is unique when compared to the other hydration packets that we offer because it has more of a focus on nootropics and clean caffeine. We know this might sound counterproductive since caffeine is a diuretic, but we use clean energy to achieve impressive levels of concentration.

Every single serving has 100mg of natural caffeine from a blend of yerba mate and green tea. This formula is key to providing both nourishment for the brain along with hydration from the water and electrolytes.

The caffeine isn’t the only reason that this hydration drink can improve focus and concentration. We also use Gaba in this product for its stress-relieving qualities. It may also be key to improving focus and mental clarity. This ingredient is combined with Alpha-GPC to boost brain function. Specifically, this choline compound that is naturally found in the brain can help with learning and memory. It may also improve nerve cell health.

What are the other ingredients we use to create this complex blend of herbs, vitamins, and nutrients?

Each serving of FOCUSAID GO also contains the following:

  • B-Complex Vitamins
  • Acetyl-L-Carnitine
  • Vitamin C

Much like the other products in our hydration line, FOCUSAID GO is naturally sweetened. We don’t add any artificial sweeteners. That means you’ll never see sucralose or aspartame on our nutrition facts labels.

None of our products come packaged in any kind of synthetic packaging. We don’t even use plastic or glass bottles. Our focus on leaving out the junk is just one of the reasons that our hydration drinks stand out from the other options you’ll find on the shelves.
