What are the best drinks to have while on outdoor adventures? The natural choice for hydration is water. It hydrates better than any other liquid, both before and during exercise. Water tends to be less expensive and more available than any other drink.

Water is the best, but it only helps you if you drink it. Sports drinks don't hydrate better than water, but you are more likely to drink larger volumes, which leads to better hydration. The typical sweet-tart taste combination doesn't quench thirst, so you will keep drinking a sports drink long after the water has lost its appeal. See more about Sports drinks by clicking here!
