Optimized for function, not flavor

In collaboration with our board of medical professionals, we created clean and efficient hydration supplements to restore electrolyte and mineral gaps in the American diet—starting at the cellular level.

More Benefits In Every Drop

👅 Purposefully Unflavored

Made without the sweet but inflammatory ingredients that lead to inflammation and chronic disease with long term use.

No sugar, stevia, dextrose, sweeteners, natural flavors, artificial ingredients or additives.

🌊 Real Sea Salt

We use harvested, not manufactured salt for cellular hydration.

Most electrolyte supplements use the cheaply manufactured sodium sources like sodium bicarbonate and sodium chloride, which are essentially baking soda and road salt.

Our salt is hand harvested from protected marine areas in the South of France and rich with hydrating electrolytes and trace minerals that work wonders for every cell and system.

💦 3x More Bioavailable Form

Liquid form factors are up to 3x more bioavailable than powders and dissolving tablets for fast-acting hydration that works at the cellular level.

✨ 87 Ionic Trace Minerals

Modern agriculture and commercial water have stripped our soil and water of essential trace minerals, making them hard to find even in the most balance diets.

Even just minor deficiencies in these minerals can cause inabilities to absorb and use nutrients effectively.

Every drop of Buoy contains 87 trace minerals preserved in their naturally ionic state for high bioavailability and fast absorption.

We’re Focused on The Numbers

85%

of American's sodium intake is from processed salt

Nutrient sparse sources found in table salt and processed foods (like sodium bicarbonate and sodium chloride) are used by electrolyte supplements because they're cheap.

These sodium sources are essentially baking soda and road salt and lack the nutritional density and bioavailable structure for effecient hydration

Buoy's harvested sea salt is preserved in its naturally-occurring ionic state from protected marine areas in the South of France that's loaded with trace minerals for fast-acting cellular hydration.

92%

of Americans are mineral deficient

Modern agricultural practices and commercial water have depleted our soil and natural water sources of essential minerals, making them hard to find even in the healthiest diets.

Even minor deficiencies or imbalances can negatively impact our ability to absorb nutrients.

Squeeze them back into your diet with Buoy's 87 ionic trace minerals preserved in their naturally-occurring ionic states for high bioavailability and fast-absorption.

Daily Hydration

You lose electrolytes from basically existing. Even if you’re drinking the recommended half-gallon of water every day, you need electrolytes to make the most of the water you’re intaking.

Exercising

Losing as little as 2% of key electrolytes and fluids can significantly impair physical and mental performance. When you exercise, you lose 6-10%. Restoring these lost electrolytes can improve performance and even boost it above your baseline.

Keto Dieters

People starting out on the Keto diet can feel like they have the flu even when they don’t--irritable mornings, dizziness, low energy and insomnia. In ketosis, your body burns fatty acids instead of glucose for energy. Within five days of cutting out the carbs, your insulin levels drop, cueing your kidneys to release sodium from your body. No wonder low glycogen and insulin levels have similar symptoms as dehydration--you’re peeing out all those energy bunny electrolytes. A steady intake of key electrolytes sodium, potassium and magnesium help fight the Keto Flu.

Vegan Diet

Buoy is made of only electrolytes and minerals sourced from the deep ocean and plant-powered vitamins and antioxidants.

Hangovers and Alcohol

When you drink, your body breaks the alcohol you ingest down into an exponentially more potent byproduct called acetaldehyde. Although hangovers can’t totally be avoided, replacing the electrolytes and vitamins you pee out while drinking makes you feel a lot less like a light-sensitive slug the next day.

Coffee Drinkers

Coffee is a mild diuretic, which is another way of saying you’ll lose more fluids than you’re taking in. Since you lose electrolytes while sleeping, starting the day off with a cup of dehydrating Joe makes running into that midday wall nearly inevitable. Start your day off better than waking up on the right side of the bed with a half-second squeeze in your coffee to replenish those Energy Bunny electrolytes.

Traveling

Low humidity in airplane cabins leads to moisture evaporating quickly from your body, making you much more susceptible to being dehydrated. When air is dry, your throat’s cilia is much less effective at fending off viruses and bacteria, making you more vulnerable to getting sick. Keep your immune system strong and get the most of your trip by replenishing electrolytes levels in the air.

Productivity

At universities in East London and Westminster, students who hydrated while taking an exam improved their scores by 5% over their dried-out classmates. Staying hydrated has some serious benefits for brain function and energy.

Camping and Hiking

Even capable hikers underestimate dehydration’s grave consequences when caught outside with not enough water. Dehydration can quickly turn a mild and even unnoticeable headache into heat exhaustion, causing confusion and disorientation. As temps rise, even the American Hiking Society (AHS) tells hikers that “water by itself is not enough. Sweating out salts diminishes your body’s ability to regulate liquids.” Yet, AHS warns people to be wary of “drinking too much of sports drinks since they often contain large amounts of sugar.” You don’t have to take our word for it: if you’re hiking, make sure you stay hydrated with enough water and electrolytes without the sugar.

Smoother Skin

Skin, just like any organ, needs to be hydrated to function properly. In summer, sweat leaves your skin drier than before. In winter, colder weather makes your blood vessels constrict and dry out. Give your largest organ its best defense from drying out with a few half-squeezes of Buoy each day.

Better Moods

Even the healthiest of people show mood changes when mildly dehydrated. In men, dehydration promotes feelings of anxiety and nervousness. In women, sluggishness and brain fog are more common. Avoid the dehydration blues with enough fluids and electrolytes to keep your mood stable and motivation high.

Pregnant Women

Healthy individuals often experience a loss of electrolytes through normal daily activities, just like water loss, but pregnant women are prone to losing electrolytes more rapidly and at a higher volume. And the reason why is simple — you pee a lot more. Electrolytes are important at any point in life, but they have some specific roles in pregnancy. All nutrition is provided through the placenta during pregnancy, which is high in sodium and low in potassium. The amniotic fluid electrolytes are tightly regulated, and in the third trimester, potassium is accumulated in the fetal tissues while sodium is delivered in amniotic fluid. This balance of electrolytes, and how they shift, is vital to healthy development. Sodium is also important for its role in transferring water between cells and its balance with potassium. When sodium is high, potassium is low, and vice versa. Because sodium is believed to be a factor in developing preeclampsia, a significant pregnancy complication, maintaining the ideal electrolyte balance is crucial.

Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness happens when your body adjusts poorly to lower oxygen pressure at higher altitudes. At higher altitudes, sweating and exertion can take a larger toll on your body. Drinking too much water without replenishing your electrolytes can make you hyponatremic, which means you’ll flush electrolytes away from excess water. At high altitudes, this can be life-threatening.

Updating my Review! Squeezed too much initially.

Initially the taste was way too strong and I wrote a bad review but now I realized I was squeezing way too much. Cant change the amount of stars anymore but would recommend this!

Can’t Say Enough How Thankful I Am for Buoy!

I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and POTS and trying to manage my liquid and electrolyte intake is a job in of itself, not to mention expensive. I had heard of Buoy before, but when I found out they are supporting the chronic illness community by offering a reduced price program I immediately ordered. I am very pleased with how easy the process was and how easy it is to use Buoy to make all my drinks better hydration. It definitely has that electrolyte salty taste in plain water, but in anything else it’s tasteless. I am in an oatmilk kick and I really love that I can add a couple squirts and it’s extra hydrating. Thank you Buoy for supporting those of us with chronic illness and recognizing that many of us are buried in health care costs and any little bit helps for us to manage our conditions and our budget.

The product I have been searching for!

I might cry writing this. I have chronic migraines, fibromyalgia, seizures. The doctors aren't sure if dehydration is a cause or symptom or if the illnesses I mentioned are individual issues or all combined into one. Migraines could be causing dehydration causing seizures. OR it could be seizures causing dehydration causing migraines. We don't know.

We just know that I have had to relearn to walk multiple times and that keeping an electrolytes balances is ESSENTIAL to quality of life and mobility. I spent YEARS only allowed to drink flavored and artificially colored electrolyte beverages. It made me miss plain water. I was frustrated by having to drink a heavy mixture of "insert brand name" electrolytes powder just because I wanted some plain water or a coffee for once.

My life is dramatically changed! I can now go out to eat with friends and order whatever I feel like drinking. I drop my drops and, BOOM! My drink is an electrolytes beverage! I was constantly searching for the lowest sugar and least flavored. Always desperate for a product that hadn't been brought to market yet. I finally found Bouy and didn't even look at the price. I said "why not at least try. Maybe it's as good as they claim. After all I wanted to inevent this but did not have the means" I usually deliberate all purchases but took a leap of faith that really paid off!

I gave some out at Christmas to my health conscious friends and they love being able to recharge after a workout with out all the crud…

I can tell a difference!

I cannot drink anything with artificial sweetener, it gives me a severe headache. And I do not care for flavored drinks, if I'm drinking water. That's why Buoy Hydration Drops are perfect for me. No flavor, no sweeteners. I love it! And I can definitely tell a difference when I use them . I feel more energy (not like a buzzing energy, just more alert or something), I feel less thirsty, I feel more focused and I'm able to play Pickleball for longer in the heat without feeling as much muscle fatigue.

I'm so glad that I came across these!

Amazingly Hydrating

I have POTS so hydration and electrolytes are extremely important! I love how Buoy provides both and is flavorless. From my morning coffee to my nighttime tea Buoy provides me with what I need to help prevent POTS flares. Thanks Buoy!!!
