This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and DripDrop®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #DrinkDripDrop #DripDropHydrates http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
When I was younger, I never really thought about hydration or drinking the daily recommended 9 cups of water. It was only after I suffered a heat exhaustion episode that I began to take hydration seriously.
Suffering from heat exhaustion was one of the scariest things I’ve ever been through and I wish I knew about DripDrop sooner. I couldn’t even stand without feeling like I was going to faint. In fact, I was extremely lucky that it didn’t turn into something more serious, like a heat stroke.
Most people think of heat exhaustion only happening during strenuous activities in hot temperatures, but it can happen any time our bodies can’t cool its core temperature to the normal 98.6F. Fortunately, heat exhaustion can be prevented! One of the best prevention methods is to keep hydrated. This is the reason I like to have DripDrop on hand when my family does outdoor activities, like yard work, even during the cool winter days. Yes, you can get dehydrated in cool weather too!
Since I knew we would be working outdoors, I headed to CVS and picked up a box of DripDrop from the baby aisle to make sure everyone would be well hydrated.
While water is great, it doesn’t replace electrolytes that we lose through urine and sweat. Drinking DripDrop helps to maintain our water balance and contains 2-3 times the electrolytes found in regular sports drinks with only half the calories! I love that!
Plus, I feel good knowing that DripDrop was created by Dr. Eduardo Dolhun, a student of the Mayo Medical School. It is the first oral rehydration solution to combine medical grade hydration with great flavor.
So to help prevent heat exhaustion and dehydration, I always make sure we all drink a glass of DripDrop before doing any type of strenuous outdoor activities.

How do you prevent dehydration?
Thank you for linking up to Small Victories Sunday last week! I have pinned this to our group board. We look forward to seeing what you have to link up this week!
Wow, I never thought of getting heat exhaustion other than in hot temperatures. I’m definitely looking into this. Thank you for sharing! 🙂 #ibabloggers
Yes, anytime your body can’t regulate its core body temperature you are in danger of this. This is from the Mayo Clinic website…
Besides hot weather and strenuous activity, other causes of heat exhaustion include:
Dehydration, which reduces your body’s ability to sweat and maintain a normal temperature
Alcohol use, which can affect your body’s ability to regulate your temperature
Overdressing, particularly in clothes that don’t allow sweat to evaporate easily
This sounds very interesting! I like that it has the needed electrolytes, without all the sugar or corn syrup. Thanks for sharing at the IBA!
