I do a lot of saunas and I’ve recently been taking steps to make sure I replace my electrolytes since I’m been sweating so much.
Here are a couple of recipes I’ve found to make your own electrolyte drinks, instead of drinking bottled sports drinks with sugar and artificial colorings.
Dr. Oz’s Electrolyte Water Recipe
1 liter of water
1/2 tsp of baking soda
2 tbsp of agave nectar (low glycemic so it won’t raise your blood sugar like sugar or maple syrup)
1/2 tbsp of sea salt
Low Carb Sports Drink
1 cup of water
2 tbsp of lemon juice
small pinch of salt
flavor or sweetener to taste (like stevia or xylitol)
