Can I use Hydrant while Pregnant/Nursing?
First off, congratulations! We’re excited for you and your growing family. This is definitely an exciting time (as we’re sure you’ve been told), and we’re here to help where we can.
We’ve heard from expecting and new moms asking if they can drink Hydrant during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. Many of our customers found that when they focused on improving their hydration routine with Hydrant, their symptoms of dehydration (think grogginess, fatigue, dry mouth, and thirst) lessened overtime. Hydrant is an excellent way to stay hydrated, but we always err on the side of caution and recommend consulting with your doctor beforehand if you have any further questions or concerns. This is an important time in your life!
What is Hydrant?
Hydrant is a dissolving drink mix made with a blend of balanced electrolytes, minerals, and just the right amount of sugar to rapidly hydrate you.
About 75% of Americans spend their days dehydrated and don’t realize it. Common symptoms of dehydration include headaches, irritable mood, lack of focus, fatigue, and even dizziness. We saw a great need to create a product that rapidly hydrates our customers so they can get ahead of these symptoms and keep themselves hydrated all day long.
Proper hydration can bring mental clarity, mental and physical performance improvements, brighten the skin, and positively influence long-term health. We’re here to help our customers feel and perform their best by starting and activating their hydration routine.
What Products Do You Offer?
Currently, we have three Hydrant product lines: HYDRATE, ENERGY, and IMMUNITY.
HYDRATE, our original product, was designed to give you a refreshing rush of optimal hydration—anytime, anywhere. Perfect for the morning, afternoon, pre- or post-workout, or to reset after traveling. HYDRATE is available in six flavors: Lime, Grapefruit, Blood Orange, Iced Tea Lemonade, Fruit Punch, and Orange Mango. All of our HYDRATE mixes are caffeine-free, with the exception of Iced Tea Lemonade, which has ~40mg of caffeine from the black tea in its ingredients list. Fun fact! Lime was the first Hydrant flavor and has been a fan favorite ever since.
We also offer a No Added Sugar option within our HYDRATE line in two flavors: Pink Grapefruit and Lemonade. Both of these are caffeine-free, and contain no stevia or artificial sweeteners (we use monk fruit extract as the sweetener).
If you’re keeping an eye out for caffeine, we recommend avoiding our Iced Tea Lemonade in Rapid Hydration Mixes (contains ~40mg of caffeine per serving) and our Caffeinated Hydration Mixes which have 100mg of added caffeine from green tea. If there’s someone in your household who would enjoy these products, you can always explore the full flavor list here!
Our ENERGY products gives our signature mix an extra boost. Get all the benefits of our HYDRATE products with the added bonus of 100mg of caffeine (from green tea) and 200mg of L-theanine. When present together, caffeine and L-theanine work as a dynamic duo and provide an extra bolt of energy without a crash. This is available in three flavors: Raspberry Lemonade, Lemon, and Orange.
Our IMMUNITY line is designed to not only hydrate you, but also support your immune system. With the balanced electrolyte boost of our HYDRATE products, our IMMUNITY products also include Vitamins A, B6, B12, C, and D plus ginger extract and zinc for added immune support. It's available in herbal Lemon Ginger (drink hot or cold) and spiced Hot Apple Cider (drink hot) so you can feel your best—no matter the season.

Reviews from Other Moms
Want more? We asked some of our customers for their review about drinking Hydrant while pregnant or breastfeeding and here’s what they said:
“Yes to Hydrant - Hydrant is just what I need after a workout or during a hot Texas summer day. I had some low sodium issues after having my first baby, and now that I'm pregnant again, it's important for me to continue staying on top of my hydration now and into the postpartum phase. I love that Hydrant replenishes what my body needs. 100% recommend 👍” -Sarah
“Amazing - Currently pregnant and cannot say enough about Hydrant. I drink the blood orange which has no caffeine and helps my energy tremendously.” - Kate
“Nice Product - Works well, taste is mild and pleasant. More palpable than plain water and I’m able to increase my water intake for breastfeeding tremendously.” - Elizabeth
While we know a lot about the science behind hydration, we’re not medical professionals. This is an exciting time in your life, and we always recommend checking out our ingredients and/or checking with your doctor to make sure Hydrant is right for you. Congrats again!
