Essentia Water for my #Exercise!

I received product from Essentia Water for my review purposes. All thoughts are 100% mine. No other compensation was given. 

For those of you following my weight loss challenge, I apologize for not being as strict on posting about it. I am following through on my end but not as consistent with posting for you all. One of the problems I have is trying to hydrate after I workout. I don't exactly want to consume a bunch of calories but I do want to re-hydrate once I sweat it all out:) There are drinks out there that I can use but I don't care for the sugar and dyes that are in most of them. I would rather drink just plain ole water, but that also doesn't restore with electrolytes. That is why I was super excited to try Essentia Water!! It is Enhanced Hydration Perfected! And I am totally loving it:)



I received a box of bottled water from Essentia and in varying sizes. Two were pop-top bottles that work great for taking to the gym, fitting in my cup holder, etc. Then two of them were a middle size with screw on tops. These were used to put my flavoring in as I sometimes put a liquid drop of flavoring in my water. And the third size was a full 1.5-liter bottle. I used these for filling my infuser water bottle. I have one of the bottles you can put fruit in the bottom and it flavors your water. So it was excellent to have the big bottle.


I was kind of expecting a flavor difference in the water as it is alkaline water that has been electrolyte enhanced with minerals. But I couldn't tell a difference in flavor, texture, etc. It was like drinking a regular bottle of water!! The only difference? There were good minerals in here to help hydrate me instead of just drinking plain ole water. I could tell after my workout that I felt better after drinking this water but just that I was refreshed quicker. Believe me, it isn't a miracle product, but I like how it worked. Ice cold, with fruit, or just out of the bottle, I used it after my workouts and felt refreshed. If you are someone who regularly exercises, runs, jogs, any workout that you sweat a lot, this is a product I would urge you to look into.

Be sure to follow Essentia Water on their social media sites. They have a splendid giveaway right now that only has a few days left to enter! 

So tell me, how do you hydrate after a workout? What is your favorite way to refresh?

I'm always skeptical of water products like that, but it would be interesting to try out and see if I noticed a difference.

It is definitely important to rehydrate with more than just water. I had never heard of Essentia, so thank you for the introduction!

I use just pure water but I hardly ever buy a bottled water. I am not a huge believer in plastic :-(
