Since I parted ways with my colon, I get hydration challenged while exercising. I drink a beverage called Hydralye, available at www.Gookinaid.com that is superior to the commercial electrolyte beverages sold in stores. It comes in a variety of flavors and is not so sweet. This is the only hydrating beverage sold in the Grand Canyon, a testament to it's superior formulation. The product was develeoped by an Olympian turned chemist.
