  • Electrolyte
  • 10 packs per box

  • Added vitamins

Cons

  • Cost, unless on sale

Propel electrolyte replacement pouches you just add to your water bottle. During the summer and spring I watch electrolytes like most hikers. I found that I wanted less sugar in my drinks. I was recommended Propel and it was easy to find at my grocers. You find it where Gatorade is sold.

My store runs a pretty good sale on two boxes. It's recommended to pour a pouch in a 20-oz bottle of water. I keep one empty 20-oz plastic bottle with me just for drinks.

The mix has Vit E 5.4 mg and VIT B6 1mg VitC 24mg and Niacin 10mg VIT b12 .05 mg .natural flavor and maltidextrin salt ascorbic acid monotassium phosphate sucrlose.

This is a good replacement for regular Gatorade when I want less sugar and sweating. It has a grape flavor. I also tried the berry flavor they have. If you're looking to cut down on your sugar this is a good option.

Price Paid: 2 for $5 at grocers

I love this product, however many times I open packets that are completely empty OR hard as a rock with unusable product. I've written to Gatorade and enclosed samples of both issues and the boxes they were in to show serial number etc, but not one person has taken the initiative towards good customer service or replied in any way.

Cons

  • Packaging
  • Customer service
