Electrolyte drink recommendations?

I have HEDS and likely/undiagnosed POTS and i’m looking for a way to stay more hydrated and i’m wondering what are everyone’s favorite drinks/mixes and flavors? I have used Ultima but I don’t like how the powder never mixes all the way in. I’ve also used propel which I like but can sometimes give me a headache. #hypermobileehlers-DanlosSyndrome(hEDS) #hydration #AutonomicDysfunction #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome #Dysautonomia
