Oral IV Review

A little while ago I was sent an interesting new product to sample and review called Oral IV. Being pregnant I double checked with my OB to make sure it is safe to use during pregnancy, and he saw no issue with it. So after a long awaited review here we go.


I am known for my honestly when it comes to reviews. If I don't like something...I will gladly let y'all know. And the maker as well. But Oral IV gets an A+ in my book.

Taken directly from their website here is a great explanation of the product...better than I could ever give anyways...

     "ORAL I.V. is a revolutionary hydration aid product based on a proprietary formula of crystalloid electrolytes and purified water. ORAL I.V. does not contain any sugars, caffeine or stimulants, additives, preservatives or artificial ingredients. It can be consumed directly or added to water. Individuals can use ORAL I.V. as an addition to their existing hydration methods and to support dehydration prevention."

I haven't been... what you would say, overly physical while pregnant, but I have been active nonetheless. The important thing to remember as well is that I am PREGNANT and live in FLORIDA. Both of which means I dehydrate a lot more quickly than the average Joe does during physical activity. And hydration is VERY VERY VERY important when you are pregnant.

So when did I put Oral IV to good use you ask? And how did is help me recover?

Excellent questions. I shall answer them both.

I decided to go for a walk. Only a couple miles. Nothing too strenuous. But it was hottttt! So I fixed myself a big ol' glass of water, and headed out the door. Then I saw that white package on the counter. And I thought that with as hot as it was, as pregnant as I was, it might not hurt to grab a little pack of Oral IV. 
*One of the great things about Oral IV is that is it small and very convenient to pack along. 
About a mile into my walk I got that overheated, and almost overwhelmed feeling and ripped open my pack, threw it back, and stopped to take a breather. Within a few minutes I already began to feel better. My color returned and I was able to complete my two mile walk. When I got home I waited several hours, and had some more Oral IV mixed into my tea with dinner.
*Its wonderful during activity and after for recovery.

I slept like a baby that night.

I also plan to pack the couple of remaining packs I have in my hospital bag to take during and after delivery. Yes I will be hooked up to a regular IV, but labor and delivery take a major toll on your reserves, and I think that Oral IV and I will be long lasting friends.

It is perfect for a small time fitness gal like me, or even someone as physical as a marathon runner!
