5 Beverages That Are More Hydrating Than Water

Water has a lot of things going for it: It has zero calories, it’s free, you need it to live… But if hydration is what you’re looking for, there are alternatives to a glass of tap water that can actually hydrate you more efficiently.

Aloe Water

The Aloe plant is packed with antioxidants and is known to have potent regenerative properties. Aloe water is a great detoxifying agent for the gut, and it helps stimulate cell growth and repair wounds. Like coconut water, it can be of immense benefit when used internally or externally and is widely used for health and beauty purposes.

Beet Juice

Sweet it may be, beet is still incredibly nutritious. Beet juice provides potassium, B vitamins, carotenoids, magnesium, and iron.

Coconut Water

Drinking real, natural coconut water is a much healthier choice for hydrating than a bottled version with added sugar or flavored syrups. Plain coconut water is low in sodium and rich in potassium, helping you hydrate in ways that regular water cannot.

Fruit-Infused Water

There are plenty of healthy fruits you can infuse in your water, and we highly suggest doing so. Simply pour some purified water into a pitcher or water bottle and add some freshly sliced fruit.

Maple Water

You definitely shouldn’t go drink a cup of maple syrup if you’re feeling parched. But sipping maple water might be a good idea. It has a hint of maple taste because it comes directly from a maple tree, tapped right from the source. It contains manganese and natural sugars to help you hydrate.
