It will add a refreshing and fruity essence to your electrolyte drinks that will go very well with the variety of flavors offered by Liquid IV. Liquid IV is an electrolyte powder company that makes the strange claim that its products multiply hydration. I've noticed that Liquid IV has a lot of cane sugar and dextrose (usually a sugar derived from corn), more than I would like in a drink. The only Liquid IV product that contains caffeine is the Liquid IV Energy Multiplier, which contains 100 mg of caffeine per serving. Liquid IV is headquartered in El Segundo, California, but the company does not indicate where the Liquid IV packages are manufactured.
The Liquid IV website contains links to a 1994 medical review showing that oral rehydration therapy has been effective in treating people with cholera or diarrhea. During intense and prolonged activity, and especially after it, when I lost a lot of water and didn't replace it regularly, it seems possible that Liquid IV would be more effective than water alone. Intravenous fluid is likely to improve hangover symptoms because part of the discomfort of a hangover is due to dehydration. But what does Liquid IV actually contain? Is the formulation healthy or unhealthy? We'll discuss it in the next section.
Liquid IV is currently 35% cheaper on Amazon than on CVS, and it's an even better deal when you factor in shipping prices.
