DIY Natural Electrolyte Drink

When you live an active lifestyle, it is important to replenish your electrolytes. Electrolytes are vital for the normal functioning of the human body. The electrolytes that your body needs include: sodium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, and chloride. You can replenish your electrolytes through a surplus of different foods, or you could make this 4-ingredient natural electrolyte drink. All you need is a pitcher, water, 2 lemons, himalayan salt, and magnesium (liquid or gel capsules).

What you need:

  • A pitcher filled with warm water
  • 2 organic lemons, juiced
  • Ground Himalayan salt
  • Magnesium (gel capsules or liquid)- I added two small tinctures of 1ML liquid magnesium

Directions:

  • Add the lemon juice, magnesium, and grounded Himalayan salt to the warm water. Stir for about 2 minutes until the salt is dissolved. If the taste bothers you, then feel free to add some honey or maple syrup to the mixture. I like to put the pitcher in the refrigerator overnight to cool (it taste much better). I drink 8-16oz a day. Enjoy!

Regulating electrolytes is also important. You want to find a balance for your body. For instance, not consuming enough electrolytes can be harmful to your body. However, consuming too much electrolytes can also be harmful to your body. If you experience muscle fatigue, weakness, twitching, irregular heartbeat, muscle spasms, numbness, blood pressure changes, bone disorders, etc., then your body could be experiencing an imbalance of electrolytes.

I always knew that electrolytes were important for replenishment, but I had no idea how much better my body would feel being balanced with electrolytes. I was definitely deficient in my electrolytes! I hope this recipe can help someone else, too. Enjoy!
