Greater Than vs. Hydration Powders

Why Greater Than provides better hydration for the whole family than Hydration Powders

Let’s face it – staying hydrated is always essential, but getting enough fluids can be surprisingly challenging as a new mom or when you’re expecting. While you may feel the need for sports drinks and liquid i.v., hydration powders contain trace minerals and nutrients and helps with rehydrating and replenishing electrolytes lost from physical activity and sweat. 

During pregnancy, your body’s blood volume increases, and all of your body’s systems work overtime – including your kidneys, digestive system, and liver. Staying hydrated during pregnancy helps everything run smoothly and will keep you and your developing baby feeling your best.

After your little one arrives, staying hydrated is still essential! Breastfeeding, which doctors worldwide strongly recommend, can be very taxing on your body. In order to produce the milk, which may be the sole source of nourishment for your little one, your body must use more fluid than it did pre-baby. 

This is why doctors recommend that nursing women drink a whopping 16 cups of plain water per day instead of the eight cups recommended for most women who are not pregnant or nursing!

Electrolyte Drinks for a Hydration Boost

Considering how important hydration is for the overall wellness and well-being of nursing and pregnant women, you might wonder how you can boost your fluid intake during this time. Electrolyte beverages are a popular way to support healthy hydration. 

They contain essential minerals like sodium, calcium, potassium, chloride, phosphate, and magnesium, which are vital to your body’s ability to absorb hydration and function properly. 

In addition to drinking regular water, electrolyte beverages can be a great way to help you stay hydrated. Because of their effectiveness, many different forms of electrolyte beverages are now available, including powdered and natural forms. 

Here, we’ll take a look at the differences between hydration powders and natural, coconut water-based electrolyte drinks with Greater Than.

Hydration Powders

The best electrolyte powders use a ratio of potassium, sodium, and glucose that helps deliver water to your bloodstream. Hydration powders are dried, and powdery mixes usually contain salt, carbohydrates, and electrolytes. These mixes can then be combined with enough water to produce a hydration drink. 

One consideration when using hydration powders is to pay attention to the strength of the mixture or how much electrolyte powder you use in each drink. Hydration powders often contain sugar, which is intended as an energy source. They also have high doses of electrolytes. 

While some sugar and electrolytes are beneficial, too much can be harmful to the body. In fact, drinking a “hydration” solution that is too strong can result in dehydration, leading to muscle cramping and spasms. This occurs for several reasons. For example, beverages with a high concentration of sugars and salts will cause water to move out of your cells, rather than in, through a process called osmosis. 

Unfortunately, if the powder contains sugar, the dehydrating effects may be even worse because the digestion of sugar actually requires drinking water.

Greater Than

Greater Than is a hydration drink that relies on natural sources for its electrolytes, vitamins, carbohydrates, and flavor. In fact, Greater Than contains no added sugar or chemical additives at all. This makes Greater Than an excellent option to replace synthetic hydration powders for moms concerned about eating clean and natural foods. 

Greater Than also comes pre-mixed, making it a consistent source of hydration. Each container's electrolyte and sugar levels are carefully balanced to ensure that you get all the health benefits of an electrolyte drink without the dehydrating effects of excess sugar and salts. With a carefully formulated hydration drink, it’s perfectly okay and delicious to reach for your hydration drink every time you feel thirsty!

Healthy Choices for Healthy Moms

When it comes to staying hydrated, thinking carefully about your options is a step in the right direction. As a nursing mom or a mom-to-be, you’ll want to be conscious of everything that goes into your body because it will affect your little one, too! 

Choosing natural drinks that are keto-friendly with no added sugar is a great way to protect your health and that of your baby.
