With the temperatures soaring in Hong Kong, one way to cool down, and quickly, is with rehydration drinks, like PRIME or rehydration salts. Of course, water should always be your first port of call to hydrate but if you’re engaging in a strenuous exercise like HIIT or exercising and hiking in very hot weather, liquids containing sodium, electrolytes and/or BCAAs can quench your thirst efficiently. BCAAs or Branch-Chain Amino Acids help support muscle growth, ease muscle soreness, and help overall performance, among other benefits.
We bring you the lowdown on the best rehydration drinks in Hong Kong and where to buy them.
