Blonyx Hydra+ - Mango & Passionfruit
Hydra+ provides energy and electrolytes from real food sources like coconut water, fruit juices and sea salt. It’s a versatile drink mix that can be used to replenish electrolytes and carbs in shorter, higher intensity training, or adjusted to maintain optimal hydration status on longer duration, sweaty training sessions.
Hydra+ tastes like a light fruit juice, isn’t saturated with salt (as research shows it’s not needed) and is focused on ensuring you perform at your best.
Blonyx Hydra+ - Mango & Passionfruit
How does Hydra+ work?
Where marketing would have you believe you need to avoid dehydration and replace the salt lost in sweat to perform, research shows that this isn’t the case. Instead studies show that the body is very capable of handling mild levels of dehydration, and the loss of body weight can even be beneficial.
Furthermore, studies on athletes shows that salt loss is easily handled, and that overdoing salt intake could do more harm than good.
Hydra+ provides a balance of carbohydrates and sodium that will speed water absorption and can be adjusted depending on your training.
How to use Hydra+
If your training is going to be high intensity and short in duration (~1h):
Mix 1 scoop with ~8oz water and sip through training or drink to thirst. This will prioritize electrolyte and energy replacement for faster recovery.
If your training is going to be lower intensity but for longer duration (~2h+) and/or in the heat:
Mix 1 scoop with 16oz water for each hour of training, sip throughout and always drink with thirst.
How will Hydra+ help me achieve my athletic goals?
Hydra+ is a real-food alternative sports drink. With real and simple ingredients like mango, passionfruit, coconut water, sea salt and organic cane sugar, Hydra+ provides electrolytes without any unnecessary additives or artificial flavours.
What type of athlete is Hydra+ for?
Hydra+ is for all athlete types, but will be more important in maintaining hydration status in endurance athletes going longer distances, or for athletes tackling particularly high intensity or longer duration training sessions where thirst kicks in. It can also be used as a great tasting, lower calorie, real food “energy drink” for shorter training sessions if desired.
It can also be used for hydration support in hot climates, without training too.
What type of athlete is Hydra+ NOT for?
Hydra+ is suitable for all athletes.
What to expect:
A great natural taste
Hydra+ has a crisp, light fruit juice like taste and is made with real organic cane sugar so there is no stevia or sucralose aftertaste.
Expect some separation
It will mix well, but as it’s made with real fruit you will get some separation of fruit particles at the surface. This is completely normal.
Using Hydra+ to keep you between 0-2% hydration level will make you feel great when training. Not bloated from over drinking or low and lethargic from over-dehydration.
Hydra+ contains the right balance of electrolytes and carbohydrates for easy absorption in the gut. Drinking it post training will kick start your recovery.
Real food ethos
Hydra+ is made with real food ingredients like coconut water and fruit - peace of mind if you try to stick to clean eating.

I have used many hydration/electrolyte products over many years and this year switched over to Blonyx Hydra+ with superior results. For my skate skiing, mountain biking and trail running workouts Blonyx Hydra gives me the hydration support I need when I need it. I highly recommend Blonyx Hydra for better athletic performance and recovery.
I had ordered the beta alanine and egg white protein powder from Blonyx. There was a delay on the protein powder, but I was happy to wait for for it come back in stock, and as a thank you from Blonyx then sent two tubs of the Hydra+ product. Have since used it and it has been very useful in longer training sessions, particularly in the hotter weather. Thanks.
Pretty much as the title says ;-) Hydra+ tastes great and I really like that it’s made from real food. Perfect for long training sessions or hikes.
Tastes really natural and I love the tropical taste.
Nice flavour. Not too sweet. Overall, very happy. I will keep ordering it. I sip it during my workouts and throughout the day.
Tastes ok but does not mix well or stay mixed
Hi there, thanks for the honest review! The Hydra contains particles of real fruit which can layer on the top. Unfortunately this is a downside of using real fruit rather than artificial flavours. The good news is that this doesn't impact how well dissolved the electrolytes etc are in the drink. We're still working to reduce the fruit particle size and will let you know how we get on. Train hard!
