Did you know that just drinking plenty of water isn’t always enough when it comes to hydration? 

There's more to the hydration equation than that…


Electrolytes may be the missing piece of the puzzle for you!  Poor hydration can lead to headaches, dull skin, fatigue, trouble sleeping, constipation, and weight gain. Bleh!  

Not having electrolytes daily or at the right time may be something you should look into. 

I’m not here to give medical advice, but I’ve looked into this subject for myself and I’ve learned some things that I think we should all know! 


According to Harvard Edu, “Drinking enough water each day is crucial for many reasons: to regulate body temperature, keep joints lubricated, prevent infections, deliver nutrients to cells, and keep organs functioning properly. Being well-hydrated also improves sleep quality, cognition, and mood.”

The problem with electrolytes…

We need to drink them for our health, but conventional sports drinks are expensive and are typically filled with unhealthy ingredients alongside the electrolytes. Yeah, it doesn't make sense for a ‘health drink’, I know. 

But there are ways to keep your electrolyte intake up AND to keep your ingredients clean!

Coconut water is one all-natural option. It’s nature-made & is a natural source of electrolytes. While incredibly tasty, coconut water is a high-calorie drink and can be quite pricey.

One other option I LOVE is YL Vitality Drops. This electrolyte concentrate comes in a 3-pack for $30, with each bottle containing 24 servings.
So that’s just $.41 cents per serving (cheaper if you buy on Loyalty Rewards and FREE if you use your Loyalty Points to purchase). 

Vitality Drops contain NO sugar or yuck ingredients and use YL essential oils and natural ingredients for their flavor. Stevia is the sweetener, which I LOVE. 

Simply squeeze 1 squirt (which is about 1/2 tsp) into 8 oz of cold water and you’re ready to go!  This is so great for starting your day or for helping you recover after exercise.  
Check what’s currently in stock, because this product is popular, and the inventory can ebb & flow. 

YL offers these flavors of Vitality Drops: 
-Lavender Lemon
-Grapefruit Bergamot
-Spearmint Tangerine
-Jade Lemon Berry
YL Vitality Drops are refreshing, delicious, & so convenient to take on-the-go.  Toss in your gym bag, purse, desk drawer, or your carry-on while traveling. This is the ultimate healthy hydration hack! 

I recommend stocking up while inventory is full & before the warmer weather approaches. The more we sweat, the more we need electrolytes. 
I hope you’ve enjoyed hearing about YL’s Vitality Drops & learning a bit about electrolytes. 
I’d love to hear your feedback if you try this little gem!
