You’re probably wondering, “why would I make this myself and not go out to a store and just buy it?” The answer is simple, most sports drinks are not only expensive, but they are packed with refined sugars, unnatural dyes, and of course preservatives. Everything that we shouldn’t be putting into our bodies! This recipe is completely natural, no additives, no preservatives, no dyes and it gives better hydration results then any sport drink I have ever come across.
Dehydration occurs when you use or lose more fluid than you take in, and your body doesn’t have enough water and other fluids to carry out its normal functions. This can happen from exertion through exercise or manual labor, sickness like the flu or stomach bug, also in conditions of extreme heat or cold. Dehydration is something you need to be very cautious about because the majority of our bodies are made up of water! Try out the recipe below and remember you can have this drink to prevent dehydration as well as aid in curing it.
