I was excited to try the TruWild Hydrate electrolyte products. As it gets warmer in the desert, I’m always looking for more products I can use while out on the run. I don’t need to repeat last year and be overconfident in the heat.
About the brand TruWild:
TruWild began when the co-founder Zac and Nathan decided to ditch the gym and try outdoor activities such as surfing, hiking, and cycling. They quickly realized that outdoor activities required different supplementation instead of their high-stimulant-based pre-workout drinks. They founded TruWild in 2017.
TruWold is handcrafted from whole foods around the world. The founder’s travels inspire it to exotic places like Peru, Tanzania, and Patagonia. At TruWild, their goal is to help outdoor athletes maximize passion. The products are designed to have the perfect combination to provide energy, endurance, rehydration, gut health, immune support, and recovery.
About TruWild Hydrate:
The TruWild Hydrate is designed as a complete replenishment mix without sugar. It is packed with “ocean minerals,” electrolytes, and amino acids. On the package, it mentions it’s engineered by natural science.

My Experience with TruWild Hydrate:
I decided to try the TruWild Hydrate in Watermelon Lemonade. To be honest, there aren’t a lot of flavors of drink mixes. I don’t care for guava. Related things are one of them. Maybe I just had a bad guava product once. I wasn’t ** paying attention because I expected the container to contain several drink mixes, but it contained a pouch with a scoop to measure serving size.
On the one hand, I appreciate the lack of waste, but on the other, it makes it hard to bring it with you. Does anyone want to carry a giant pouch around? You can just premix it. I do really like like it uses less waste.
Just opening the TruWild Hydrate bag, the smell of watermelon lemonade is strong. I like a stronger flavor, so I was excited about that. The Strawberry Lemonade is one of the stronger flavors I’ve tried, but it’s not overpowering, and the lemon doesn’t get stuck in your through. I am a big fan of the flavor, and it’s one of my favorite flavors.
I used the TruWild Hydrate in several situations. The first was on a shorter hike. It made a noticeable difference throughout the hike and sat well in my stomach. Later, I progressed towards runs and harder efforts that also provided a difference. I enjoy the flavor, and I feel better towards the end of runs when I have it versus when I don’t. I do find I usually need a gel or something with more calories if I’m running more than 90 minutes.
Cost: 20 servings for $30.99
It is one of the more expensive brands out there. The more packages you get, the cheaper it becomes, but when you buy three bags of 20 servings, it’s still $27.99.
TruWild Hydrate Conclusion:
I like the TruWild Hydrate, and I’ll continue to use it. Who knows, maybe I’ll become adventurous and try the guava! The only “problem” is it’s one of the more expensive brands out there. It does take some getting used to making drinks before you leave the house, but I am a fan of the flavor and the fact that it “works.”
