    Dont rely on the urin color test to determine if your dehydrated …….because its not all that reliable . Urin color has a lot of factors that determine its color , such as your health at the time ( do you have any infections your fighting ? ) how active are you ? ( your body needs less nutrients if you are sedentary , unused nutrients have to go somewhere ) Some foods have natural dyes that will color your urin , beets are a very good example , eat enough , and yes , your urin will be red . just sayin .

    There is a product that you can get either at some supermarkets or health places like high health , etc . ……..its called NUUN tablets . They come in a tube and are fizzy hydration tablets about the size of alka seltzer . Just drop one in a quart of water and these things really work ! what I like is that they have salts and are not sweet , matter of fact they barely have a flavor . So far , the lemon lime is the least offensive flavor I have had so far . They were designed by pro athletes for keeping them going . When I was hiking around Death Valley in 127 degrees , these things made a difference I could notice .

    • Any rehydration solution I’ve found include quite a bit of sugar and only a small amount of salt. Are these tablets designed with the appropriate ratios of sugars and salts in mind? I’ve always thought it was a specific ratio because your body needed so much of each for proper function.
