Hi guys, Michelle Phelan here, Nutritionist at Blossom Bariatrics and today I’m going to share with you some amazing tips and some awesome finds at the grocery store.

So today everybody, I have something called Core Hydration. There’s a lot of companies now that actually are putting electrolytes in regular filtered plain bottled water. So you don’t have to deal with the artificial flavors, the artificial color, and the artificial sweetener in many of them out there. And you guys know that I really am not a fan of those artificial sweeteners for folks.

But anyway, this is just an example of a brand that’s out there and something else I just saw is that now Propel has something called Propel Electrolyte Water, and it’s the same concept. They throw electrolytes in their bottled water. So for those of you who are concerned about being dehydrated, especially this summer, it’s really important everybody to stay hydrated and sometimes you get to the point where no amount of sipping water can get you caught up if you’re dehydrated, so this is where this electrolyte infusion will come in handy.

So again, this product is just an example of what’s out there. Make sure it says “electrolyte enhanced” and there’s another one out there called Propel Electrolyte Water.

On the topic of staying hydrated, especially in summer months, there’s something else I want to share with you. This is another great find in stores, or online, like online shopping, like This is by a company called Vega and this is an electrolyte enhancer. These are, of course, naturally sweetened, naturally flavored, and naturally colored, and they have just a wonderful amount of not only electrolytes, but other vitamins and minerals too, to help your hydration. There delicious. One packet is going to completely fill your bottled water. You can take it with you on the go. They’re so small you can slip them in your pocket or your backpack or your purse. They’re very handy. I always encourage folks to take them with you wherever you go.

Another great product for hydration is this product called Nuun. This product is found in many retailers now, not just health food stores, although you probably will find this in most health food stores. But I have seen it in regular grocery stores out there, like Smith’s, Albertson’s, Fred Meyer’s, etc. Anyway, so this product is amazing. One disc, this is what it looks like in the inside. It looks very similar to airborne doesn’t it? Right? How cool is that? But this is actually for hydration. It’s chock full of electrolytes, vitamins and minerals, naturally sweetened, naturally flavored. It’s going to dissolve in your bottled water. You can actually break it in two, so it fits in your bottled water.
