The $14 Post-Workout Recovery and Hydration Hack You Didn't Realize Was at CVS
Did you know that water makes up at least 50% of your body weight? Dehydration can lead to serious health concerns, which is why it’s important to make sure you’re drinking plenty of water throughout the day, especially while exercising. The average adult male should be taking in roughly 15.5 cups of water each day, according to the Mayo Clinic.
If you’re one of those people who doesn’t like the taste of water, there are healthy enhancers like Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier Drink Mixes. Not only do these powders taste good, but they’re packed with other vitamins and minerals your body might be lacking. A single box costs just $14 at CVS and contains six flavored packets.
There are seven delicious flavors to choose from, including passion fruit, watermelon, tropical punch, and more. All you have to do is add one packet to a 16-oz glass of water to reap the benefits. The mix uses Cellular Transport Technology (CTT) to deliver electrolytes into your bloodstream quickly and efficiently, which ultimately helps you hydrate faster than water can on its own. One packet is equivalent to drinking nearly three bottles of water.

The drink mix is vegan and free of dairy, gluten, soy, preservatives, artificial colors, and sweeteners. What it does have is vitamins B3, B5, B6, and B12. Each packet is small enough to fit inside of your pants pocket or gym bag, making them ideal for home, travel, and beyond. They make a refreshing post-workout beverage and ensure you’ll be well-hydrated afterward—no matter how intense your sweat sesh was.
