Upon occasion I am given the opportunity as a Dyrt Ranger to try out some amazing new products along my adventures. For this trip I was able to try out the Acai Berry Liquid IV, a unique product which offers hydration multiplication for those who are needing a little pick me up.
How Does It Work?
Hydration multipliers work in a very interesting way. Through adding a concentrated amount of electrolytes to your regular water they are able to make a single water hydrate your body as much as 3 waters of the same size. The CTT technology used by Liquid IV is unique to the brand and allows glucose and sodium to move differently in the body.
In simple terms, if you don't drink enough water regularly, if you add Liquid IV to your intake, it allows your body to feel like it actually is getting enough water.
How Does It Taste?
The Acai Berry flavor is a light flavor additive which allows you a subtle punch of flavor, Unlike many drink additives it does not have a chalky taste and when it is fully dissolved you have no textural discrepancy from a standard water. It just tastes like something other than water...lol
Does It Really Work?
I have been trying Liquid IV for a few weeks and have noticed a definite difference when using it versos not using it. The product allows your body to not feel the signs of fatigue on a strenuous hike and allows you to stay hydrated, preventing muscle cramps, profuse sweating and heat related fatigue.
When using on a standard day of light activity your body just feels more energized, despite not being an energy supplement.
I would recommend using this product for your day to day, especially if you struggle with consuming the recommended amount of water regularly. For those who participate in strenuous athletic activity this is a game changer much better than Gatorade or Powerade.
