Imagine your arms and legs suddenly stop bending like they're supposed to. Staying hydrated keeps them moving smoothly.

After about 3 days without water, your organs will actually fail. Best to stay hydrated daily to make sure everything keeps working properly!

The Pitfall to Watch Out For
The dilemma we face is that, in most cases, common tap water lacks the essential vitamins and minerals the body needs to rehydrate.
To get those electrolytes and vitamins, we turn to popular hydration drinks but we might be doing more harm than good due to the ultra-high sugar content in them or in the case of zero sugar options, the artificial sweeteners!
Walter Willett, professor of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health said, "It’s best to stay away from sugar-sweetened beverages when trying to stay hydrated. You might say we are malhydrated, because we drink so much soda and fruit juice and other sugar-sweetened beverages, and by that I mean we drink beverages that harm our health. Even energy drinks and vitamin waters, most are loaded with sugar and not worth the use."
So what do you do?
We asked ourselves that same question and came to the conclusion that there aren't a lot of good hydration options out there.
Even if a hydration drink claims to be sugar-free, reading the fine print reveals that they're full of artificial sweeteners that may have even worse health effects than sugar itself!
We set out on a mission to solve these problems and came up with a crazy new spin on hydration.
We call it, ProLoco!
It's a hybrid hydration + protein drink mix that's light and refreshing!
