Skratch Labs Exercise Hydration Mix - 20 Pack

The smartest way to stay hydrated.

Skratch Labs’ Exercise Hydration Mix uses all natural ingredients to replenish the fluids and electrolytes you lose during intense physical exertion. Dr. Allen Lim developed this unique formula for pro riders plagued by headaches and upset stomachs caused by the artificial ingredients found in most sports drinks. Lim found that the key to maintaining hydration wasn’t simply in electrolyte replacement, but rather relied on regulating the body’s sodium levels, which is why the Exercise Hydration Mix contains a level of sodium that is similar to many emergency-grade rehydration formulas. And because Lim’s formula uses all natural ingredients and is only flavored with real fruit, it’s easy on your stomach while providing just enough calories to refuel your working muscles. It also tastes great, probably because it wasn’t formulated with a list of chemicals we can’t pronounce.

One gripe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My gripe is most bike water bottles are 24 oz. It would be nice if they would create packets for 8 oz increments instead of 16 oz. Other than that, Skratch drink mix works great.

Everything I need, nothing I don't.

    It's simple, it tastes good, and it works! Not too sweet, not too salty. Great for anything that makes you sweat. I like the raspberry flavor best, but I haven't found one I don't like.

    Spot on, just what I need!

    I've been using Skratchlabs for a while and this mix is the best! No crazy aftertaste, or tounge coating, a great solid hydration product. My favorite flavors are the Lemons and Limes and Lemons and Limes w/Matcha. Not a huge fan of the pineapples and oranges, a little too light in flavor for me, but my wife loves it.

    The best!

    Another great drink mix from Skratch Labs. This one [matcha/lemon] with a mild caffeine kick from green tea. I really like the clean energy feel of all of these drink mixes.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I use the exercise hydration mix during / after bike rides, hikes or big ski days. It tastes way better than other mixes and works quickly and effectively. The Orange and Lemon-Lime flavors are my jam!

    Love It!

      Skratch is legit, use this prior to long ski tours or rides on the bike. Usually just drink water while I'm out, but if it's going to be a long day I'll throw some skratch in my bottles.

        Surprised at how good it is

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I was expecting something that helped out a bit, maybe add some spice to my water bottle. It's shocking how much this refreshes me. I drink this at the gym halfway through an hour jog on the treadmill. My second half hour is much more productive and easier with this added to my water. The taste is minimal, but adds a bit of flavor above water. I love this because it doesn't blast your tongue with flavor when you're trying to focus on a run. It's not sweet so it's not like typical sports drinks or mixes. I thought this would be an add on to some of my runs, something like a treat on some days. Now I'm thinking of it as critical to hitting greater intensities for longer runs.

        Go Citrus & Don't Look Back

          A lot of powder mixes result in being too sweet & syrupy or taste somewhat chalky. The Skratch Lab Exercise Hydration mixes hit that happy medium of tasting good and not being overly sweet. Despite Raspberry being shown in the photo, I personally love the Orange flavor best with Lemon Lime as a close runner up. This is a staple for keeping me riding longer and stronger!

          Go Citrus & Don't Look Back

          Great drink mix. Size and price - what?

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I always cramped up in hot, humid weather until I found this mix. The electrolyte balance and having lower sugar than Gatorade, etc. is great for avoiding cramps due to dehydration. My only complaint is that the single serving size is way too expensive and a packet is good for only 16 oz. All my bottles are 20-24 oz. I'd like to see a 24 oz. packet for the same price.

          Conveniently portioned.

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          Easy to pack in your travel bag or a jersey pocket for those times when it’s inconvenient to take the larger Skratch bag with you. If you're on the go often or dislike gas station stops for Gatorade, these are a life saver for staying hydrated and getting some much-needed calories.

          My Staple

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I have, and continue to use everything under the sun as far as nutritional products go; but Skratch has been my go-to electrolyte and lighter calorie exercise hydration drink mix since it was released.

          The flavor is light enough to drink at any temperature, but has enough energy and electrolytes to sustain you for up to 2 hours on the bike without much else in the way of nutrition.

          Easy to say, any time I am riding for 2 hours or under, my bike is always outfitted with 2 bottles of Skratch Exercise!

          My favorite flavors are the Matcha/Lemon and Raspberry; I always have several bags of each on hand at all times.

          Best exercise mix.

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          As mentioned below multiple times, these Scratch Labs mixes are by far the easiest mixes to stomach. A lot of hydration mixes just don't sit well in my stomach and as a result I end up being more dehydrated. These mixes are so light it is just like drinking water but with some light flavoring.

          Getting Risky after a Raspberry Skratch

          My stomach is happier than ever

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          There have been some mixes that completely ruin my stomach. I've never had an issue with the Skratch Labs mixes. This is the mix that I take on my mild to moderate runs, usually lasting 2-3 hours. I'll use two pouches and I notice more energy during my runs and super fast recovery after. I used to love running on E all the time, though after trying these out I never leave home without them.

          Stuff mixes well and tastes great. Try some.

          This stuff works

            These little packs make it easy to take your Skratch Labs hydration mix on the go. I switched to Skratch about two years ago and haven't looked back. The stuff works and dosent taste bad.

            Easiest to stomach

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            In my opinion Skratch is far superior to any other sports drink on the market. It definitely works its magic in the hottest of conditions and during the most strenuous workouts. I have all the flavors and Lemon Lime is my favorite. It's a super lite flavor addition to water and very easy to drink. It's pretty much the opposite flavor of any drink you would get at a gas station or grocery store.

            Do any Skratch products contain Stevia? I cannot STAN the stuff, and it seems to be allowed under the "all natural, no artificial sweeteners" term.

            Saved me more than once

            • Familiarity: I've used it several times

            I love these. They are so much better than your average sports drink. I just wish the taste was a tad better, that being said, it's not too bad. I need to get brave and try some of the other flavors.
