‘Miracle in a pouch’: This top-rated electrolyte drink is just over $1 a serving, today only

Whether you tend to dehydrate easily or you have a hydration-zapping medical condition like kidney stones or diabetes, the struggle to retain fluids can be daunting. That's especially true over the holidays, when everyone is running around all the time. Quick fixes often come with catches, and no one wants to land in the hospital attached to an IV. But we found a convenient, effective solution on Amazon. Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier, a bestselling electrolyte drink mix, has thousands of gushing five-star reviews from healthy, happy customers. The vitamin-rich, fruit-flavored drink hydrates you up to three times better than water—and fast. Today only, it’s up to $5 off at Amazon in a variety of flavors — that's just $1.25 a serving!

The most popular of the bunch, Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier in the acai berry flavor, is all about rapid hydration — and considering about 75% of Americans suffer from dehydration, it might be something you didn’t know you needed. Each package includes 16 packets of quick-dissolving electrolyte powder.

But don’t expect the sugary electrolyte drinks you’re used to. Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier has less than half the sugar and calories of sports drinks like Gatorade. What it does have is more than 100% of the daily requirement of 11 essential vitamins and minerals including B3, B5, B6, and B12—and more vitamin C than an orange.

What really sets Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier apart, though, is its cutting-edge Cellular Transport Technology (CTT), which delivers just the right amounts of potassium, sodium, and glucose to send water and crucial nutrients directly into your bloodstream. This means instant hydration that lasts—in fact, just one packet is the equivalent of three glasses of water.

"I was skeptical after trying several products and this is the BEST I've ever had," a shopper noted. "The flavor is AMAZING. I had a sluggish day with a headache and had just drank one 32-ounce Yeti cup. I pour this in... and surprisingly my headache went away and felt a bit of energy. 1000000000% recommend."

"I'm an athlete that hates drinking water," a shopper shared. "Go figure, right? These little packets are my must-haves when running or after working out. They taste great! My son works outside and I ordered him a bag. Love these!!!"

Another added: "I have medical issues which can sometimes lead to dehydration, so these are perfect to incorporate into my day to make sure I stay hydrated, especially when I am active camping, hiking, and kayaking."

"Miracle in a pouch!" another one of over 50,000 five-star reviewers declared. "...For people who dehydrate easily, workout, or had ONE too many the night before...this is the product you need. I feel 200% better after one stick in 16oz of water than I did an hour ago. This is truly amazing."

Want to ward off headaches, dizziness, confusion, muscle fatigue, muscle cramping, fainting and all the other side effects of dehydration? Grab all the flavors and do a taste test for yourself. But hurry—this is a one-day sale!
