We love This!
My husband & I are loving this post workouts. Light flavors that are not too strong and love all 3 flavors but strawberry is my fav!
Refreshing Flavors and No Sugar
I love DASH Hydrate! All the flavors are fantastic, but my personal favorite is Strawberry. What sets DASH Hydrate apart is its lack of sugar, great taste, and excellent mixing/dissolving properties.
Amazing Product
This is by far the best hydration product I have used. The blue raspberry is good and the Italian Lemon Ice is awesome. I can’t keep my family’s hands off of it!

Signs of dehydration for Military Personnel

Military Personnel Hydration FAQ: Your Top Questions Answered

How much water should Marines drink a day?

Depending on the heat and activity level, you may need to drink from 1/2 to 1 1/4 quarts of water per hour—3 gallons/12 liters per day in hot, dry climates. Drinking water is a must in order to prevent heat injury. If desired, individuals may add flavoring to the water to enhance consumption.

How does the military stay hydrated?

Soldiers must drink even when they are not thirsty. Leaders should establish a program of regularly scheduled hydration. Soldiers should drink at least two to six canteens of water each day.

Why is water important in the military?

Military Service Members often have physical demands beyond the norm and must be physically and mentally ready to meet operational needs at any given time.

When dehydration comes into play, the success of the mission can be at stake.

With additional water loss, soldiers can develop:

  • flushed skin
  • increased body temperature
  • weariness
  • sleepiness
  • impatience
  • anorexia

At 4% loss of body weight, soldiers display signs of apathy, and might complain of muscle fatigue and nausea. Vital organs such as the kidneys, brain and heart cannot function without a minimum amount of water and salt. Acute dehydration can be a serious outcome of both heat and cold exposure, but it is also seen as a dangerous side effect of diarrhea, vomiting and fever.
