Waterdrop Microlyte cubes are my go-to hydration & electrolyte solution before and during workouts

The Perfect 2023 Gift for Athletes or the Hydration-Obsessed

Andrew Merle


As we get ready to flip the calendar to 2023, many people are resolving to become healthier and more active in the new year.

If this is you, or someone you know, your environment can be the deciding factor in whether you achieve your goals or not.

For example, if your running shoes are always within sight, you’re more likely to go out for a walk or a run. And if fruit and nuts are always within reach, you’re more likely to be a healthy snacker.

To stay on track, it’s important to support your new lifestyle in ways that nudge you toward your goals.

I love products that remind me of my fitness objectives, while also helping me feel and perform my best.

To that end, I recently discovered a European beverage startup called Waterdrop that supports my goals and active lifestyle.

Waterdrop make these awesome little hydration cubes that quickly dissolve in water, delivering fast hydration and a range of electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals.

It’s like a hydration mix and a multivitamin all in one.

I aspire to live a very active lifestyle full of running, tennis, squash, gym workouts, and more. In the past, when I didn’t focus on my hydration, I was prone to cramps and would feel fatigued during workouts.

I’ve experimented with lots of hydration mixes, but many of them have added sugar or loads of sodium, which doesn’t agree with my body.

I love the Waterdrop cubes because they taste great and have no calories, carbs, or sugar. I also like that they have a more modest amount of sodium (only 25mg) vs. other hydration mixes on the market, since I am conscious of my overall salt intake.

I just drop a cube into my water bottle to drink before, during, and after workouts and I’ve noticed it makes me perform and recover significantly better. I keep the Waterdrop water bottle on the kitchen counter within eyesight, reminding me to get moving and to hydrate properly.

I’ve been enjoying the Melon, Grapefruit, and Blueberry flavors. Waterdrop has a good starter set of all 3 flavors that I recommend.

Most of the things I buy these days support my healthy, active lifestyle. I’ve become a big fan of the Waterdrop hydration cubes, which I now use for all of my workouts.

I think they’re more effective and healthier than most other hydration and electrolyte options on the market.

Hydration is critical whether you’re an athlete or not. If you’re resolving to become healthier in the new year, I recommend giving Waterdrop hydration cubes a try.
