Nuun portable tablets are small but pack big benefits. Coconut water is another good option as a natural source of electrolytes and a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals.
5. Resistance Bands
Virtually weightless and requiring minimal space in your luggage, the bands will keep you on top of daily rituals. They come in a variety of resistances that enable you to perform strength training without the need for weights.
