Stay Hydrated at Home and On the Go with Drip Drop

In full disclosure, I received product and compensation for this post. However, all opinions expressed are completely my own.

You might be surprised to learn that chronic dehydration affects 75 percent of Americans, and most people are suffering from dehydration symptoms without even knowing it. Early warning signs include but are not limited to dry mouth, headaches, sluggishness, and increased anxiety. Believe it or not, thirst is an indication that dehydration has already set in.

When you are sick it is very important to stay hydrated. This is something I have learned all too well this winter, after a couple of yucky colds and most recently a stomach virus which passed to each member of my family. It was just last month when I had my turn with the stomach bug, and was rather sick for a couple of days. I didn’t realize the toll it had taken on me until I went grocery shopping and found myself feeling hot, dizzy, and like I was walking through a fog. I spent years in the medical profession and even I didn’t recognize the signs of dehydration early enough. I seriously wish I had been introduced to Drip Drop oral rehydration solution (ORS) before that afternoon.

Drip Drop ORS

Drip Drop oral rehydration solution allows you to quickly treat dehydration. Drip Drop helps you recover from sweating, vomiting and the results of the stomach flu. I just heard on the news the other night that this terrible flu season we have had is going to last longer than expected.

You never know when illness is going to strike. Since Drip Drop can be stored in it’s dry packet form, you can be sure to have it on hand when you need it. Drip Drop is available in powder form, in small packets which dissolve quickly in a glass of water. This makes it easy to slip into a diaper bag, purse, or even the car. Dehydration can be caused by excessive sweating, so before heading to the gym or taking that walk you can sprinkle Drip Drop right into your water bottle.

One of the things I like about Drip Drop, is that it can be used by children, adults and seniors. In a multi-gen family like mine, it’s nice when the youngest and the oldest family member in the house can take the same treatment.

Drip Drop Oral Rehydration Solution

Did I mention that Drop Drop tastes great? My family has tried both the Natural Berry and Natural Lemon Flavors and they are really good. I think I might like the berry flavor a little too much. Luckily, an adult can consume up to 8 packets per day as needed.

If you think that a sports drink is good enough when you are sick, think again. Drip Drop has 2-3 times the electrolytes and ½ the calories of a sports drink. Be sure to have Drip Drop on hand for the next time you or a family member gets sick. I know that I will. It’s conveniently available to purchase online from the Drip Drop website. Staying properly hydrated will help speed the recovery process.

    I know these are supposed to be wonderful, but the fact that I cannot easily find an ingredients list bothers me. Most of these drink mixes contain sweeteners that are NOT good for a body, regardless of whether the FDA approved it or not. The FDA is approving all kinds of things that are NOT good for us, unfortunately!

    • Angela says

      Hi Tori! An ingredient list is available on the DripDrop.com website under the FAQ tab with the label “What Does Drip Drop Contain?”

    Oh my goodness, I seriously need drip drop! We struggle getting kids to drink when they are sick. Goodness, I struggle to drink when I’m sick. But something that has a great taste would really help. And I love that it tastes great but less sugar than sports drinks. yes, I think I could really stock up some Drip Drop in our food storage supplies. Yes Please!

  3. says

    Wow.. I love that they come in small packages to make it easy to keep in your purse or bag; what a great review, I had never heard of the product but totally love it and will check it out and grab a few the next time I’m out

  4. says

    I entered for I want to give this a try! As the season down here gets hotter, we do a lot of outside activities. This is a great thing and I really want to try it out for me and the family!

  5. Shauna says

    This is super-awesome… all three of my kids just got over a bug and it was tough getting them to drink enough fluids, even the days after… this definitely would have helped.

  6. says

    How do we stay hydrated during cold and flu season? The better question is how do we the rest of the time? I’m not a fan of water and don’t drink it well. Anything that gives it flavor is a winner in my book.

  7. says

    These are great! With flu and cold season, it’s really easy to get dehydrated, especially kiddos! They don’t really understand the importance of drinking a lot when they’re not feeling well. The added electrolytes is awesome!! I’ll have to check Drip Drop out because you’re right…those sports drinks aren’t enough!

  8. says

    I’ll be honest….I need to drink more water. I’m horrible at it. Luckily my son loves water! He drinks it all the time! I think he would love this!

  9. Eliz Frank says

    Now that is a smart solution for those of us who don’t drink enough water… I love the idea and the fact it is safe is great.

  10. says

    To tackle cold/flus in our house, we slow down as soon as we start to notice the sickies coming on. It helps us re-recuperate faster and we aren’t so down for the count. To get in water, I have to have a tall full cup waiting for me every time I walk past my kitchen!

  11. Ms Gretchen Ann Luper says

    we drink lots of water and juices to stay hydrated when we have flu symptoms at home. another trick i’ve used is to freeze a sports drink in ice cube tray and suck on them as needed like a popsicle. Has always worked fairly well.

  12. Sarah says

    Thank you for the review of this item, and for the giveaway! It would be a great thing to add to my medical supplies.

    • Sarah says

      Oh, and I guess I should finish answering the question. Oops! Fruit juice and ginger ale are the hydration items of choice for sicknesses in my house.

  13. Beanybopp says

    I take vitamins everyday and when I feel a cold coming on I take melt-away vit C and zinc. I also have a humidifier to help with the house being so dry to help with dehydration.

  14. Jamie Martin says

    Everyone seems so impressed with this one when they arrive. We have a ‘water cooler’ in our fridge. We bought it for seven bucks at Walmart, there’s always cold water, so we drink plenty.

  15. courtney hennagir says

    We drink a lot of water in our house.I am prone to dehydration when sick and have been hospitalized 3 times in the last couple of years for it.I am really excited to try this!

  16. says

    I don’t do to much really, drink lots of fluids and take over the counter medicine. If it gets too bad, like it did 2 months ago, I go to my doctor and get a shot and prescription medicine.

  17. Julia says

    We haven’t been doing a good job this year. We’ve all been sick way more than normal this winter. To stay hydrated we keep water bottles filled and drink clear fluids when ill.

  18. says

    We take over the counter meds, and lots of herbal chamomile tea blends with unpasteurized honey to soothe sore throats and encourage hydration. For my littles, I will make some weak Kool-Aid with a straw, and it’s a treat so they drink lots!

  19. Lisa C says

    I try to drink lots of herb tea with lemon (for the Vit. C) and honey (to soothe the throat – and tastes yummy!) and was my hands constantly, so I am also putting on some nice soothing whipped shea butter to keep the hands from being so chapped.

  20. Cindy Merrill says

    Switchel is a great energy drink, full of vitamin C, also provides needed minerals, better than the glow in the dark chemical stuff known as “Gator Ade”: Mix one pint fresh apple cider with 1 cup black strap molasses, 1/4 cup cider vinegar and 1/4 cup ground ginger, wisk until fully blended, slowly pour 1/2 gallon of filtered water into mixture. This can be poured into any large water cooler or punch bowl. Some add more water, but that’s optional.

  21. Brenda Penton says

    I stay fit and eat healthy, wash hands, and take a multivitamin. I try to get in 6-8 ounces of water daily, but it is tough!

  22. Virginia Rowell says

    Being in Florida, I keep plenty of water and gatorade in stock. We take vitamin c daily and if we start to get sick, we take extra. And wash, wash, wash the hands.

  23. Ashley Lewis says

    We take vitamins, drink hot tea for a sore throat, and drink lots of cucumber/lemon ice water.

  24. Teresa Chapman says

    Hand washing, and I carry hand sanitizer to combat cold and flu. This looks like a very cool product. I have an autoimmune disorder called sjogrens syndrome, and one of the symptoms is extreme dry mouth, I’ll have to try this product and I hope it helps.

  25. Carol L says

    Never heard of this product before. I’m glad I saw this post because I rarely drink water and this would be great for me. I usually add lots of vitamin c and zync to the diet to prevent getting so many colds in winter.

    We take a multivitamin, but we take extra vitamin C and Emegen C. We also try to flavor our water. so that we drink more of it
