Liquid IV is a brand of electrolyte drink mix powders focused on hydration and immune support that uses a proprietary blend the company calls Cellular Transport Technology.

Company founder Brandin Cohen also states his company aims to make a positive impact on people and the world by donating over 15 million servings of Liquid IV worldwide, saving thousands of lives.


This company specializes in hydrating people all around the world with clean and simple ingredients.  Their main ingredients include mined salt and cane sugar because electrolytes are lost through sweat and this combination helps to counteract the loss.

Stevia (a natural sweetening ingredient that comes from the stevia leaf in powder or liquid form) contains zero calories, Vitamin C, and, of course, water.  


It’s said to be surprising that sugar is in a drink that is supposed to be so healthy.   In Liquid IV, the natural sugars work to regulate your electrolytes.

Their products also come in three different flavors: lemon-lime, passionfruit, and acai berry.

Its nutrition facts are pretty simple as their Liquid IV Healthy Hydration has no preservatives, artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners, and no artificial colors.

They have 3 times the electrolytes of sports drinks, with less than half of the sugar and calories.  It's one of the healthiest ways to hydrate and is a safe option for kids to replace sports drinks with.

How Does Liquid IV Work?

The science behind the Liquid IV is something called Cellular Transport Technology (CTT). It focuses on an even ratio of sodium, glucose, and potassium. 

Not only are you getting hydrated with water, but you’re also getting important nutrients delivered to your bloodstream, leading to faster and more effective hydration.
