Homemade Gatorade Drink With Electrolytes 

Homemade Gatorade Drink With Electrolytes 

Today I will show you how to make your own hydration drink with ingredients you just might have in your kitchen. Everything homemade is always better for you!
I love this recipe for a Gatorade Drink with electrolytes to hydrate and replenish…and NO processed ingredients or artificial sweeteners!
Electrolytes are essential minerals (salt, potassium, bicarbonate, etc) that conduct electrical charges when dissolved into water.
They play an very important role in the regulating the nervous system and keeping you hydrated.
If you have nausea, headaches, fatigue, low blood pressure and muscle cramping these are signs of electrolyte depletion.
Every time you exercise or are sick you should replace your electrolytes with this drink. Just grab your blender and whip up this drink and serve it over ice.
This healthy drink has orange, lemon, honey, and sea salt. All these ingredients are very healthy and will help boost the energy of your children if they are getting sick. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE IT TO BABIES BEFORE THEY ARE A YEAR OLD BECAUSE IT HAS HONEY IN IT!
100% Real Fruit Juice
Coconut Water….. is often referred to as “Nature’s Gatorade”. On it’s own, it has more potassium than sports drinks (13 x the amount!) and contains more natural sources of sodium.
Real Salt
Lemon or Lime Juice….just add a few teaspoons of fresh lime or lemon juice.
Simply put all of the ingredients into a blender, and blend well.
Did you know that  Gatorade was originally created in 1965 as a means to combat heat exhaustion for the University of Florida football team (the Gators). Between the excessive heat, humidity and strenuous exercise, the Gators were depleted. This translated to excessive weight loss, sluggish performance and sometimes even fainting.
The fix? Basically, a team of researchers worked together to create what was essentially lab-made sweat that footballers would drink for electrolyte replacement.
Maybe you are short on some ingredients make the following substitutions.
Coconut water…. Use filtered water in place of coconut water
Lemons or Limes…. For the best Lemon Lime flavor, try using the juice of 1/2 lemon, and 1 whole lime.
If you do not have Honey you can use maple syrup.
Store in fridge for up to a week.
