what hydrides can be mixed with water and drank to increase hydrogen content in the body? thanks?

Most of the substances making up your body already contain hydrogen, like water and the carbohydrates that make up the rest of the organic chemicals you body is made of. If you are trying to adjust the hydronium or acid H+ content, then you should stick to weak acids. Some people advocate taking vinegar on a regular basis. Fruits, like citrus fruits, also contain acids. Just be careful of your teeth, those acids can eat away at your enamel.

Absolutely not ....
The only "hydride" you can drink is the hydride of oxygen.... H2O.
Let us only consider binary hydrides. You may be thinking about metal hydrides. Metal hydrides react with water to make hydrogen gas and the metal hydroxide. None of that would be good for you.
2LiH(s) + 2H2O(l) --> 2LiOH(aq) + H2(g)
Water is a nonmetal hydride. You can mix that with more water and drink it. But the remaining nonmetal hydrides would be acids or bases: HF, HCl, HBr, H2S, H2Se, NH3, PH3.... get the idea?
You can drink any of those .... once.
