Rehidrat Oral Electrolyte MixtureHot
Rehidrat Oral Electrolyte Mixture Powders help the body to replenish lost fluids, so it can perform all its necessary functions. Each sachet of Rehidrat contains an optimal balance of sugars, salts and minerals to replenish lost fluids and help prevent and treat dehydration and electrolyte depletion. The formula contains no artificial preservatives, colourants or sweeteners and is available in exciting flavours.
To use, simply dissolve the contents of one sachet in 250ml of freshly boiled and cooled water.
Often, dehydration can be counteracted by drinking water. However, if the body gets to a place where it’s dehydrated due to loosing bodily fluids, then it’s advised to take Rehidrat to help replenish electrolytes that have been lost.

- Energy loss
- Muscle weakness

Signs of dehydration to be aware of in babies:

Since I've started using the Rehidrat Sport Naartjie flavour, I have more energy. I get home and have a spring in my step. I'm more active now as well. My normal step count per day is about 6000, but I've gone so far as to increase it to 10 000 steps without getting tired. Last week I had the 'flu and this worked like magic. My headaches disappeared much quicker. I normally use 250ml cold water to dissolve one sachet, but when I was sick, I used about 125ml per sachet and I think because it was so concentrated, that's what helped me get better much faster than I normally do. I love this and what's also great about it is that it's HealthyCare approved. Even my teenage daughter loves this. The only reason my Rehidrat Sport is safe from my guy, is because he does not like naartjies which works out well for me :) This is really great for everyday use and I highly recommend it. I'm even keeping a sachet or two in my bag with me at all times for just in case.
If you don't know what Rehidrat is, it's a balanced mixture of sugar and salts, which replaces the electrolytes in the body and treats dehydration. The reason I love taking it with me on long hikes is that I never know what might happen. We usually try and take at least 1,5 liters of water per person but when the weather heats up and you are climbing a steep mountain that water might disappear quicker than you thought. If you mix in a sachet with some of your water before you finish it all you might end up thirsty but at least not dehydrated so no dizzy spells or feeling sick, which can lead to accidents and even worse.
My boyfriend Michael was the one that got me into drinking Rehidrat as he was always in the mountains, sometimes for hours. I actually didn't want to drink it at all because I thought it was not going to taste very great. I tried the blackcurrant and orange ones and they were actually not bad at all although in the case of staying hydrated that shouldn't even matter!
I really think Rehidrat should be something everyone keeps inside their first aid kit, handbag, hiking pack and even in your car glove box. You really never know when you or someone else might need it. I have so many examples where I have seen people, especially on trails that have not packed enough water because they did not check the length of the route and that could really get you into trouble. Michael and I even helped a big group of hikers once that had no more water left and still about two hours of hiking to do. They were lost and we had to give them directions as well as some water and Rehidrat as they had no food or water left.
Be safe this Summer and pack some Rehidrat whether you are going to the beach, on an epic hike or even a festival!
Rehidrat tastes good, which means it's an easy solution. I personally prefer the vanilla flavour, but because we are both athletes we tend to keep the Naartjie sport flavour in the house. Rehidrate is also easily accessible which means its even more convenient, especially when you need it fast.
Always keep a couple of sachets in your home medicine box, its really a wonder fix and suitable for all ages.
Some days are just so busy that the time flies and you get to the end of the day and realize you have had much too little fluids. REHIDRAT saves the day! Just mix one sachet with a cup of (filtered or distilled) water and you'll feel a lot better. The same applies for if you have a hangover, best cure! ;) As well as if you've had a bug or been a bit under the weather. I like to keep them around for so many things. Dehydration is really a big deal and you can never be safe enough when it comes to your health.
They come in a variety of 3 flavours and in my option the other two taste great, except the Vanilla, I can't stomach that one for some reason. The orange is my favourite!
HUGE FAN and I highly recommend this product.
I've been gulping down packets of REHIDRAT for a few years now as it has slowly become a tried and tested solution to almost everything in our household. From scorching sun over exposure to post diarrhoea dehydration, we sip on the drink to reenergize and feel refreshed.
The easily dissolvable powder, sinks in to 250ml of water to make a potent mixture which replaces the much needed electrolytes in your body. The drink replenishes your energy as well as hydrates you. The fact that the sachets can be purchased at affordable prices and has no side effects, preservatives, artificial sweeteners or colorants means that you can consume the sachets as often as need be.
I initially found the REHIDRATE blackcurrent flavour to be very bitter and not pleasing to my tastebuds, but I'm glad that the new and improved lemon & lime sports flavour tastes much better and can be digested easily in a few sips. The orange and vanilla flavours are great alternatives too. The fun part of REHIDRATE is that it can be mixed into a glass of your favourite juice, colddrink or flavoured water, if you really cannot consume the drink on its own.
We all know how busy life gets, between juggling all our commitments and focusing on our careers, we tend to be unable to find the time to even drink the required amount of water. Having a sachet that counteracts the effects of dehydration which fits our handbags and our lifestyle is glorious and much needed especially now during these hot South African Summer days. Currently I am having a REHIDRATE drink post gym workouts and I am feeling hydrated and I know because of it I am performing to the best of my ability.
I can ramble on and on about the benefits of the hydration powder but words means nothing unless you grab a glass, dissolve the powder and feel REBOOSTED, REENERGIZED, REFRESHED AND REHIDRATED for yourself!

As a mom I always bought it and kept a couple of sachets, for emergencies, fro the kids. It never occurred to be that it could be something one could incorporate into their lifestyle for overall wellness.
Now you must know, I work a job which requres me to be on the road most of the day. The heat is shocking! I love spring, but spring doesn't seem to love me back ? I suffer from such bad allergies where my nose goes up in flames, the minute a window is opened or that I step outside its non stop sneezing, feverish symptoms and cold sweats at night. The cold sweats especially meant I'd wake up feeling exhausted.
So in comes rehidrat. When I discovered that I could use it to compensate for the sweating, I have since cone up with a refreshing version. Water, orange juice and lots of ice. It really has made my mornings bearable and my late afternoons not as slow as they used to be.
I highly recommend this. When your children just seem offish after a long day at school, when you generally feel drained or after days filled with bottomless coffee and a few cocktails. Most times we don't recognise dehydration when it comes to adults, but its tell-tale signs like random headaches, skin not looking so great with very fine lines, fatigue etc.. Yes drink water, but when you find yourself at rock bottom, Rehidrat will replace those electrolytes immediately and water will help to maintain that balance.
I was lucky enough to be contacted by Beauty Bulletin to do a review on REHIDRAT. Now, I have only been using Rehidrat for about a year now. I'm a student in my fourth year at University, and as a student, I am a very busy person. Then again, we are all busy people, so listen up! Sometimes when you are super busy, you simply forget to drink water. I drink my two or three cups of tea during the day and that's my hydration for me. Which is TERRIBLE. By the end of the day, I have a ginormous headache. These headaches had been going on for about 3 years. Yes, that's right. A headache every day for three years! I went to a homeopath once, and she informed me that my body was extremely dehydrated. I knew that I wasn't drinking enough water, but sheesh. I was introduced to Rehidrat like any other student has been - after a night out, my friend handed me a Rehidrat, and I gulped it down. To my surprise, and for the first time, I didn't wake up in the morning feeling like a tumbleweed was rolling around in the desert that was my body.
Nowadays, there is no time for parties - but Rehidrat has still been my trusty companion. I still really struggle to drink water during the day - as I've said before, I simply forget. Drinking all that tea tricks my body into thinking that I am hydrated, and I don't feel thirsty. Night time comes and I still have work to do, but I have no energy and I have a headache. It is nights like these that I can easily rejuvinate myself with a Rehidrat. It comes in three different flavours - blackcurrent, orange, and vanilla. I have always gotten myself blackcurrent and orange, because it tastes just like juice. I normally shy away from vanilla because vanilla-flavoured juice does not sound very appetising. However, for the purpose of this review, I bought myself a vanilla Rehidrat, and can I tell you - it is freaking DELICIOUS!! It is super sweet but when you are feeling like your sugar levels are low (or if you are just using that excuse because you just want a sweet treat), honestly, the vanilla Rehidrat is the one to go for.
In 2014, I was diagnosed with a horrible (and invisible) disease called Endometriosis. Amongst other things, this [stupid] disease leaves me feeling exhausted, all the time. I actually don't know enough about my own disease (it is relatively unknown so information is hard to find and symptoms tend to differ from person to person) but I blame all my problems on my disease (because I can. Ha). I have dry skin, the headaches of course, and, let's get real here, a little IBS (thanks Endo). And, I can honestly say that Rehidrat can help with all these things. I now take Rehidrat religiously every week, to help with the little boost that my body needs. When I exercise, I find that it helps to take my Rehidrat BEFORE going, as it keeps up my energy levels, and prevents me from feeling dizzy.
It is easy-peasy to use, I just pour the contents in a mug, pour half a cup of boiling water and half a cup of cold water and mix it all around. If you don't like the effervescent taste of it, I would recommend mixing in a little bit of concentrated juice. Or when it has cooled down, pour it in a wine glass. Everything tastes better in a wine glass. However, Rehidrat tastes just like juice (or sugar water, in the case of the vanilla flavour), so it is delicious as is.
I really really desperately wanted to make a video showcasing this product because we have had a long (ish) journey together and I wanted to show my appreciation, but like I mentioned, I am a busy girl and I have to write my thesis now (sigh)! Nevertheless, I hope you enjoyed this review/diary entry! ;)
