I use hydration tabs from “wiggle” online. Various flavours. Really won’t do long or strenuous walks without these in my water bottles.
It's all uphill from here.

Ditto.


Plus extra salt sachets (courtesy of McDonalds) into the meals.

I've had to use it whilst in South America, to try and re-hydrate when suffering from a ten day bout of  dysentery, it tastes fowl.

Is it chicken or duck flavoured?  :)


Sorry, couldn’t resist.

+ 2 and I have used them. Mine were blackcurrant flavoured which made them a tad more palatable.

I have the Blackcurrant ones - tastes OK - better than the outcome of not using them.


Low blood sodium (hyponatremia) occurs when you have an abnormally low amount of sodium in your blood or when you have too much water in  your blood. … Signs and symptoms of hyponatremia can include altered personality, lethargy and confusion. Severe hyponatremia can cause seizures, coma and even death.

When it's really hot 25+ then I will carry one bottle with a sachet of dioralyte and two with just weak juice in.  I also have a spare sachet in my emergency kit.
