How To Keep Your Family Hydrated In Sickness & Health #DrinkDripDrop

I know it’s almost spring on the calendar but most of the country is just starting to feel temps warm up. We experienced one of the coldest and snow filled winters on record! Our weather in New York this winter was horrendous and the bone chilling cold was brutal.  Cold and flu season was the worst this year.  Everyone I talked to said they had never been so sick.  I had a fever of 103 for over 3 days and I don’t remember the last time I was that sick.  If there is one piece of advice we all probably know about colds and flu, it has to be to stay hydrated by drinking lots of fluids.

When you’re sick your body needs the right kind of fluids to replenish lost electrolytes.  DripDrop is a hydration powder that was developed by a Mayo Clinic-trained physician.  DripDrop activates the sodium-glucose co-transport system, one of the fastest hydration mechanisms in the body. It literally pulls water from your gut and hydrates you faster.

You simply mix the great tasting powder with water and drink.  Clinical studies show that drinking DripDrop rehydrated the body 34% faster than water alone and 20% faster than sports drinks or pediatric solutions.  DripDrop is a great choice for rehydrating when battling gastrointestinal illnesses.  I know those are running rampant right now.  I have even heard that some schools had to close because so many students and staff were affected.

DripDrop is an excellent choice to use for children.  Children, especially small children can become dehydrated very quickly when sick.  When my son was 12 months old, in less than 24 hours with an intestinal bug he became so dehydrated the pediatrician admitted him to the hospital.  Many young children are admitted for the same reason.  Fevers especially can dehydrate children fast! DripDrop can help to keep your child hydrated when they’re sick or playing sports.

The best part is DripDrop is available in two yummy flavors, lemon and berry.  As parents we know, if our kids won’t drink something, it doesn’t matter how healthy it is!  We tried DripDrop recently and it was super easy to mix, it mixed up well right in a water bottle. In our family taste tests, the flavors received a big thumbs up all around!  You can purchase DripDrop at your neighborhood CVS, Walgreens or HEB stores. You can follow DripDrop on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.  Stay well, stay active and stay hydrated.
