After an intense workout, your body loses essential minerals and electrolytes along with sweat. Replace and replenish those vital nutrients by taking along one of these ultra hydrating sports drinks or mixes wherever you go. Although there are tons of sweet, fruity concoctions out there that promise healthy hydration, for this list we stuck to better-for-you options that are low in sugar, calories, and don’t use artificial sweeteners. Now go break a sweat!
1. Vitaminwater Active Move It Sports Drink (12-Pack)
Vitaminwater Active is packed with electrolytes from natural sources including coconut water and sea salt, so you can replenish your body with the essential nutrients you sweat out during a workout.
We love the “Move It” flavor that tastes like strawberry and black cherry. Plus, at only 100 calories per bottle, this sports drink won’t slow you down.
2. Roar Organic Electrolyte Infusion (12-Pack)
Reviewers describe this yummy low-calorie sports drink as the “organic version of Gatorade.” Loaded with electrolytes derived from organic coconut water, organic cane sugar, and sea salt, this better-for-you sports drink contains just 2 grams of sugar and 10 calories. We love the natural flavors like this Strawberry Coconut variety.
3. Vita Coco Organic Coconut Water (12-Pack)
Coconut water is one of the best natural sports drinks out there. This refreshing beverage packs in more potassium than you can get from a single banana (and 15 times the amount of potassium found in the average sports drink). It’s also fat-free, super hydrating, and contains no added sugar.
4. Amazing Grass Green Superfood Tablets (60-Pack)
Whether you’re replenishing essential vitamins and minerals lost during an intense workout or you’re feeling under the weather and looking for a boost, these superfood tablets from Amazing Grass will do much more for you than your standard sugary sports drink.
Each tab is packed with one full serving of superfood greens, electrolytes, and essential vitamins and minerals to give your system the boost it craves. Just pop a tab into water, let it fizz, and get ready to feel much better.
5. BODYARMOR SuperDrink (12-Pack)
Not only does this sports drink from BODYARMOR taste like a fruity smoothie, but it also contains potassium-packed coconut water. You’ll get vitamins A, C, and E — plus antioxidants — to keep your body replenished during a workout.
6. Propel Fitness Water (12-Pack)
From the makers of Gatorade comes this zero-calorie and sugar-free sports drink that is loaded with electrolytes, vitamin B, and antioxidant vitamins C and E. Propel Fitness Water replenishes the nutrients you lose during your workout without adding back the calories you burned. Try the berry flavor.
7. Powerade Zero
As the name suggests, one bottle of this sports drink from Powerade contains zero calories, and it works hard to replenish four key electrolytes lost in sweat: sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium. It also contains vitamins B-3, B-6, and B-12 to help your body metabolize energy from food.
