This article about how to hydrate quickly was brought to you by Liquid IV, the makers of an electrolyte powder designed to keep you hydrated during a long day of outdoor activities.


While the average American needs 8 to 10 glasses of water daily, 75% of all Americans are chronically dehydrated. This is bad news, regardless of location or activity. But when you’re playing outdoors, dehydration can become a serious problem.

At some point we all experience some level of dehydration while adventuring outside, and may look for quick hydration solutions when we’re feeling fatigued, dizzy or have a headache likely caused by dehydration. Perhaps you simply forgot to drink water to replace what your body loses while hiking or exercising, or because you’re at higher altitudes that strain your body’s homeostatic levels.

Liquid IV makes an electrolyte powder that keeps you hydrated for longer periods of time using Cellular Transport Technology (CTT). It’s designed to keep you energized and high-performing during your days of activity, from hiking to just hanging at the campground.

Cellular Transport Technology (CTT) is a delivery system that helps water and other beneficial nutrients get absorbed into the bloodstream faster. While fluids pass through your body, they travel through the entirety of the digestive system, where water and other nutrients get lost before your body can absorb them. CTT uses a precise ratio of sodium, glucose, and potassium that allows water and other ingredients to be delivered to the bloodstream earlier in the digestive system, helping hydrate your body quickly and efficiently.

Liquid IV’s hydration multiplier packets are 2 to 3 times more hydrating than water alone, with three times the electrolytes of traditional sports drinks and three delicious flavors. Each packet also contains 11 essential vitamins. Plus they’re convenient to throw in your backpack without the bulk and waste of those bottled electrolyte options.

Getting outside is important to all of us, and if you’re wondering how to hydrate quickly after feeling the unfortunate symptoms of dehydration, Liquid IV is a great place to start.
