One of the Worst things You Can Put in Your Body … Need Electrolytes Look Here!

Gatorade, Powerade and more are some of the worst things you could possibly put in your body. It’s made up of mostly chemically treated & refined sugar just as much as a sode and includes artificial colors and ingredients that are not healthy for your body

Gatorade recently phased out Brominated Vegetable Oil due to a recent petition but Powerade still contains this ingredient.  It’s used to keep the drink from getting cloudy and the artificial flavor suspended in the drink.  This substance is linked to serious health consequences like skin rashes, severe acne and thyroid issues.

The new version of Gatorade still has chemically processed refined sugars and questionable natural flavor to cover up the fact there is absolutely no fruit juice in this drink to make their fruity flavors.

Gatorade does do one thing –  replaces electrolytes.

You do not need any special formula to make a drink to replace electrolytes it’s really simple.

All you need is simple real food sources that provide a few key minerals like sodium, chloride, potassium and magnesium.

Salt is the key ingredient to get electrolytes into the body. Electrolytes are basically salts.  We lose electrolytes during exercise through sweat or fluid loss.

Raw or local honey is a natural sweetener that’s actually good for you and helps to soothe tummy troubles.

Fresh lemon juice contains electrolytes, such as potassium, magnesium and calcium, which help to restore hydration in the body.
