Regular readers will know I'm a huge fan of Rejuvenated products including H3O Night Repair and of course their cult collagen drink product, Collagen Shots! Considering water is essential for many metabolic processes within the body, H30 Hydration drink is the perfect companion to boost the effectiveness of both of these products.
I have tried their H3O Hydration drink a few times now and loved it, but it wasn't until I took a bag on holiday with me, in 36°C heat and 65% humidity, that I really appreciated exactly how good this product was!
Firstly what is it? H3O Hydration is a hypotonic hydration drink with electrolytes that provides minerals and ions that are key for hydration. This allows cells in the body to utilise water better than drinking plain water. Remember the isotonic drinks that athletes use to keep them hydrated and provide an energy boost (mainly from all the sugar!), well hypotonic drinks are like a superior version to those. All the hydration benefits but without the sugary carbohydrates and it's only 2 calories per serving!
H3O Hydration also contains additional benefits of Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidants trans-resveratrol and Vitamin C, and because it's kept in powder form it means it's completed stable and fresh per serving. Vitamin C kept in liquid form degrades overtime so you're not always getting the benefit you think you're getting.
The hydration drink is slightly pink in colour when added to water and is supposed to have a very mild berry flavour, however this is dependant on how much water you add it too. I was buying 500ml bottles of 'aqua sin gas' (mineral water to you and me) on holiday and adding a scoop to that, giving it a quick shake and then drinking. I couldn't really taste any berry flavour, just a refreshing, fresh taste.
When you're in that kind of heat, hydration is even more important, especially with the humidity. Not just for skin health but overall health! Thanks to the hypotonic benefits of H3O Hydration I felt hydrated all day. Plus despite indulging in a few Gin & Tonics on the evening, I never had a single hangover or headache the whole time I was away (note: I am not advocating this as an excuse to get annihilated! But if you do happen to have a few too many, this is the ultimate hangover cure to restore lost hydration).
If you struggle with drinking enough water to stay hydrated or you're planning on a holiday abroad to somewhere hot, then this is an absolute essential for your suitcase!
H3O Hydration hypotonic drink retails at £24.95 for 30 servings or is available as a duo for £45 for 60 servings. Available to buy from Rejuvenated.co.uk.
