Nothing can ever beat a cool glass of lemon juice on a hot and humid afternoon for rehydrating self.

However, a few other drinks can bring in the same level of rehydration on such a day.

3. Electrolyte drinks

These drinks aids in the maintenance of our body’s water level. Water and electrolytes (usually sodium and potassium) are all that you need to make a drink. Gatorade, ORS, Electral, and other readily available electrolyte drinks are examples.

4. Smoothies

Another alternative can be smoothies as they are an excellent way to incorporate an electrolyte-rich diet. Smoothies are made with fruits, seeds, vegetables, nuts, and so on. These provide our bodies with the nutrients they require.
