Easy Electrolyte Drink

Easy Electrolyte Drink

For the past few weeks there has been a nasty bug making it's way around our neighborhood (and our house!). Everyone I know has gotten a bad stomach flu that has lingered for awhile. Hermione, Doug and I have all gotten it to one degree or another. When you have a stomach bug and are throwing up a ton you run a huge risk of getting dehydrated from loss of electrolytes. Electrolytes ( potassium, sodium and chloride) are minerals the body uses to regulate the transport of fluids. You need their help to stay healthy and hydrated. Water alone is not enough to get you back to where you need to be after a bout with a bug. Enter this super easy, natural replenishing drink. All you need is coconut water and sea salt and you will be on the way to recovery! Why sea salt you ask? Well, while coconut water has lots natural sugars and minerals key to recovery it also has a high potassium to sodium ratio. In order to make this ratio more balanced we need to add a little sea salt!

Easy Electrolyte Drink

  • 3 cups of raw coconut water
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  1. Combine the coconut water and sea salt in a mason jar and shake throughly so the salt dissolves
  2. Sip plenty of this drink to maintain healthy electrolyte and hydration levels
