Menu Monday: All-Natural Electrolyte Drink

Be Like Mike?

 

Electrolytes are minerals found in the body that have an electric charge such as calcium, potassium, sodium, phosphate and magnesium. These electrically-charged minerals work to deliver nutrients to the cells, assist in muscle function, balance PH levels in the blood and so much more. When you lose bodily fluids, you lose water as well as these very important electrolytes. Managing electrolyte balance is especially critical during illness, extreme physical exertion, extreme heat and other times of noticeable demand on the body causing loss of electrolytes via sweat, urination and other bodily fluids.

An easy way to ensure proper hydration and to maintain electrolyte balance is by drinking an electrolyte drink. Store-bought pre-made electrolyte drinks are very popular but often contain added sugars and undesirable chemical additives that can be tough on the body’s GI tract. The best option is to opt to make your very own all natural electrolyte drink using quality ingredients.
