You probably found yourself here because I’m walking you through becoming optimally hydrated through the Quench method (if not, what are you waiting for? Sign up here!). Below you’ll find a few items you might want to purchase. None of them are required and you can make do without them if needed. You can likely find all these items at your local grocery store (check the health food aisle) or coop, but I’ve provided links for purchasing on Amazon, as well.


  1. Ground Chia Seeds – Chia seeds come from a desert-dwelling plant that is known for its ability to retain moisture in order to survive. Chia seeds are very high in healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and also release gel when they are placed in water. You’ll notice that they swell and get a slimy film around them. It’s very good for your hydration and your digestive tract. Either whole or ground chia seeds will work. Ground is a slightly better option simply because grinding the chia seeds increases their surface area and will produce more of the beneficial gel.
    My recommendation on Amazon : Spectrum Organic Ground Chia Seeds (10 oz) $7.99
  2. Sea Salt– all salts are not created equal. Throw away your traditional table salt (Mortons, with the little girl holding the umbrella!) and immediately replace it with natural sea salt. Sea salts have naturally occurring trace minerals that aid in hydration, processed table salt lacks this and can cause swelling and bloating.
    My recommendation on Amazon: Maldon Sea Salt Flakes ($6.05)
  3. Unsweetened Pomegranate Concentrate – Pomegranates are 82% water with a huge dose of potassium, a nutrient that helps pull hydration into your cells.
    My recommendation on Amazon: Dynamic Health Pomegranate Concentrate ($13.12)
  4. Lemons – Lemons and limes both contain pectin (something we use to make jams and jellies! gel!) and the natural electrolytes that help regulate our body’s electricial impulses and messages.
    You should be able to find lemons at your local store or grocery delivery service. 
  5. 100% Pure Maple Syrup – Pure maple is tapped from maple trees, and is a fluid that is filled with minerals and a surprising amount of antioxidants. It’s an excellent choice for adding natural sweetness to juice, smoothies, or even coffee. Grade A syrup is harvested earlier in the year and is lighter in flavor and minerals. Grade B is harvested later in the season, will have a darker color and will be richer in flavor and minerals. Go with Grade B when possible! When buying maple syrup always ensure that it says “Pure or “100%” and that the only thing on the ingredient list is “pure maple syrup”. High quality maple syrup should cost you around $.50 or more per ounce.
    My recommendation on Amazon: Anderson’s Pure Maple Syrup Grade B ($21.93)
  6. Coconut Water – Coconut water is rich in electrolytes and makes a great addition to smoothies or juices. Again you want this to be “100%” or “Pure” and coconut water or coconut water concentrate + filtered water should be the only ingredients. Some have added sugars or sodium and you want to avoid that. You should be able to find this at your local stores.
    My Recommendation on Amazon: Vita Coco Organic Coconut Water ($25.99) 


  1. Bragg’s Liquid Aminos – these serve as a healthier substitute for soy sauce. I use them in my recipe for The Magic Sauce which I put on almost everything.

More information about the Quench method can be found in the book Quench by Dr. Dana Cohen and Gina Bria. You’ll find their full shopping list on pages  174-177.
