I drink Coconut water from vita coco and I have not had any hydration issues. It tastes like absolute crap but I just down one or two during the day and drink plenty of water and I'm fine. I cut 8 lawns by myself with a push mower in 99 degree Philadelphia heat and no cramps or anything. I had some a serious heat exhaustion occurrence when I was 21 and I used to pour concrete. Was pouring concrete around a swimming pool, after pouring 3 large jobs before that. I hadn't really eaten or drank anything all day and I smoked cigs at the time. I got dizzy and started having heart palpitations. The guys I was with threw me in the pool. I wasn't right for weeks after that, so now I make sure I hydrate.
