While sipping on Salud, you’re guaranteed to stay both hydrated and happy. These hydration + immunity drink additives were created by social media influencer Josh Leyva who wanted to help people quench thirst and increase hydration in a healthy way. Salud’s hallmark trait is their clean premium ingredients and authentic flavors. I have personally tried Salud, and I appreciate the wide variety of flavors from pineapple to mango to hibiscus (my favorite) that never fail to enhance the H20 experience.  Further, each drink mix is packed with electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals — including 100mg of elderberry and Wellmune to boost immune systems.

If you mix just one stick of this hydration powder into a cup of water, you’ll get three times the electrolytes of average sports drinks. How does it work? Cellular Transport Technology — a mixture of sodium, potassium, glucose,  and water that helps deliver water and nutrients into the bloodstream much faster than an average cup of water. On top of that, you’ll be getting premium ingredients like 100% of vitamin C, B3, B5, B6, and B12. Plus, every time you buy a packet of these, the Liquid I.V. brand will donate a bag to charity.
