Staying hydrated is a vital part of maintaining cellular health and, therefore, a vital component of living in a state of wellbeing. This hydration, essential for our muscles and nerve cells (neurons), commonly considered the “electric tissues” of the body, requires electrolytes. Electrolytes are minerals and salts that keep tissues functioning by regulating muscle, nerve, and brain function, balancing blood pH, helping repair tissue, and playing a vital role in helping the tissues stay hydrated.
Everyone must hydrate daily, from busy parents to people at work to active people to athletes. Obtaining a daily fluid intake is often a challenge and, therefore, can affect cellular function and wellbeing.
That’s where Hydrate comes in.
Why do I need Hydrate? Hydrate isn’t your ordinary hydration drink… it’s hydration reimagined.
Water (fluid) is essential to life. It is necessary for every cell in the body, necessary for the flow of nutrients and waste between the cells, and necessary in every process and function within the body.
Electrolytes are minerals that are essential to a vast majority of bodily functions, including controlling fluid balance, helping to regulate blood pressure and body pH, playing a vital role in muscle contraction and relaxation, and vital in the functioning of the nerves, brain, stomach, and heart… just to name a few.
Isagenix Hydrate and Hydrate + Hyaluronic Acid provides a naturally flavored way to obtain our daily fluid with the vitally important electrolytes in a delicious drink with no sugar and no calories in an easy-to-use form… just pop it into water, shake, and enjoy!

- Sodium, potassium, magnesium, and chloride
- Pink Himalayan salt provides the source of sodium and trace minerals
- Four delicious natural flavors: Orange, Raspberry, Lemon Lime, and Watermelon (Hydrate + Hyaluronic Acid)
- Contains 0 calories and 0 grams of sugar
Let’s take a closer look at the electrolytes in Hydrate and Hydrate + Hyaluronic Acid.
Sodium* – a key mineral that helps the body maintain fluid levels and blood volume. It is the primary regulator of the amount of fluid that flows between the cells, known as extracellular fluid. It is also involved in other vital functions such as muscle contraction, nerve signaling, blood pressure regulation, facilitating nutrient uptake into cells, and maintaining an optimal acid-base (pH) balance in the blood.
Potassium – another key mineral that helps maintain fluid and blood volume. It is the principal regulator of fluid levels within the cell, known as intracellular fluid. In addition, potassium contributes to nerve transmission, plays a role in muscle contraction, and assists in maintaining normal blood pressure.
Magnesium – a mineral that is a key factor in over 300 bodily systems, such as muscle and nerve functions, blood pressure regulation, energy production, protein synthesis (creation of proteins), and blood glucose control.
Chloride – a mineral that helps maintain extracellular fluid and electrolyte balance and a component in maintaining acid-base levels—contributes to stomach acid stimulation, helps the movement of oxygen and carbon dioxide into and out of the cells, and contributes to muscle and nerve function.
Hydrate + Hyaluronic Acid
Hydrate + Hyaluronic Acid provides all the same ingredients and benefits for optimal hydration that Hydrate does, but with added support for skin health. Hydrate + Hyaluronic Acid delivers a clinically supported amount of hyaluronic acid (165 mg) for more supple, hydrated skin by helping to increase skin moisture, reduce the signs of aging, and support overall skin health. It also provides an excellent source of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), shown to support general skin health.
Why the Increased Level of Sodium in Hydrate?
Isagenix products and overall systems are very low in sodium. Because sodium is an essential electrolyte required for health, we provide these electrolyte-rich Hydrate beverages to shore up your overall electrolyte intake. When consumed daily with other Isagenix products AND an overall healthy diet, Hydrate is a perfect, great-tasting beverage for couch potatoes, those on the run, and especially those who exercise regularly!
This chart provides the sodium content in our Isagenix products, the average daily consumption of Americans, and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which recommends adults limit sodium intake to less than 2,300 mg per day.

* Salt and sodium are different. Sodium is a mineral. Common table salt is sodium chloride. Sodium chloride is 40% sodium and 60% chloride. One teaspoon of table salt contains about 2400 mg of sodium.
** Adults are recommended to consume 2 to 3 liters of water daily.
