Drinking enough water every day can feel like a real chore, but there’s no denying how important it is. Staying hydrated regulates your body temperature, delivers nutrients to your cells, and gives you energy. These samplers, tablets, and enhancers will help you meet your daily water quota if you’ve been falling short.

Let’s be honest, all of us probably should be drinking more H2O. The experts recommend that adults drink eight, 8-ounce glasses per day. Wow, that’s a lot of liquid! If getting through several bottles of the plain stuff every day isn’t doing it for you, these items can help you hit your hydration goals.

If you prefer drinking warm liquids, but aren’t a huge fan of tea, try upgrading your hot chocolate instead. Laird Superfood Hot Chocolate is a popular product that adds powerful ingredients to the cozy, cold-weather drink.

To get the hydration benefits, you’ll need to mix this chocolate powder with hot water rather than milk, but don’t worry—it’ll still taste amazing. Made with rich Peruvian, organic cacao, powdered coconut milk, and a touch of cinnamon, you’re sure to love the flavor of this hot chocolate.

It also contains reishi, chaga, and maitake mushrooms for added health benefits, but if that sounds gross, don’t worry—you won’t be able to taste them.

Bubly Sparkling Water

Several cans of Bubly sparkling water

When drinking plain water starts to get boring, turn to sparkling. While there are plenty of brands to choose from, we love Bubly. It comes in a variety of fruity flavors but contains no sugar or calories.

The only two ingredients in a regular Bubly drink are carbonated water and natural flavors. The flavor is very subtle, as is the case with most flavored waters, but still strong enough to be quite enjoyable. This six-flavor variety pack will let you try multiple flavors so you can find your favorite.

You can also mix and match flavors to match whatever mood you’re in. Each bottle is portable and can be kept at room temperature wherever you think you’ll need it. This stuff is pretty powerful and a little goes a long way, so use it in small amounts on your first try until you find your sweet spot.

Coconut water is a great way to stay hydrated, thanks to its naturally occurring electrolytes. Unfortunately, the real stuff can taste kinda weird if you aren’t used to it. These Coconut Water Drops are the perfect happy medium; they add a rich coconut flavor to your water without any of the funkiness you might taste in pure coconut water.

The drops add a crisp taste to your water and are made with minimal natural ingredients. The brand sells a variety of flavors in addition to coconut, though, including raspberry green tea, watermelon, and cranberry.

Pure Hydration Coconut Water Drops

Add the crisp, refreshing taste of coconut to your water.
