Recipe For A Sugar Free Electrolyte Sports Drink

Recept Voor Een Suikervrije Elektrolyten Sportdrank

When we exercise or fast, it's important for your overall health to prioritize hydration by adding electrolytes, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring.

Fruits and vegetables provide natural electrolytes, but if you exercise, live in a hot climate, or follow a low-carb diet, you may need to add extra electrolytes as a sports drink.

What exactly are electrolytes and how do they work?

Electrolytes are minerals that play an important role in many bodily functions, including hydration, muscle contraction and nerve function. When we sweat, we lose electrolytes through our skin, so it's important to replenish them by drinking fluids like water or sports drinks. An imbalance in electrolytes can lead to dehydration.

Electrolytes are essential to our health, regulating everything from nerve function to cellular fluid balance, blood pressure and pH levels. By making sure we have enough electrolytes in our system, we can maintain optimal health and avoid problems.

The electrolytes important for hydration are sodium, potassium, calcium, bicarbonate, magnesium, chloride and phosphate. However, there are also other trace minerals and elements that play a role in optimal hydration. Therefore, it is important to consume a variety of foods and drinks that contain these essential nutrients to stay well hydrated. One way to do this is to make a sugar-free electrolyte sports drink at home with simple ingredients.

And before you grab a colored bottle of who-knows-what-in-the-drink, it's good to know that most electrolyte drinks are loaded with artificial or regular sugar, preservatives, and artificial colors and preservatives - ingredients we use during a fasting period, or also detox, definitely want to avoid.
