Flavor sampled: Mango, a tasty flavor doesn’t hint at the amount of sodium in here. It’s rather delicious, in fact.
Testing scenario: We saved this powerful punch for day 3, our toughest day on the trail with over 6500 feet of vertical to gain over 30 miles without a water refill (not to mention we were schlepping through a mud-covered road the consistency of peanut butter).
Warning label: Stacked with sodium, this hydration mix comes correct from the qualified labs of the Skratch family. The Hyper Hydration Mix was in testing for two years before they unleashed it to the public, citing the extreme sodium-rich product as being strictly for those athletes and professionals (we’re talking firefighters) who, according to Skratch scientist and founder Dr. Allen Lim, are “sweating more than they can possibly drink.
Bottom line: While this isn’t an everyday exercise supplement, it’s a solid choice come race day.
