We’ve found an awesome recipe (actually three different recipes) for an “electrolyte energy drink” made from real ingredients – and had to share.
Shop-bought “energy drinks” have come under a lot of criticism due to their artificial ingredients. So with these drinks you get to avoid all that. You also get to avoid adding to the ever-growing mountain of evil plastic bottle waste – which is something we of course think should be avoided whenever possible.
Electrolyte solutions are ionized salts dissolved in water. The primary electrolyte ions of importance to the body are sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), calcium (Ca2+), magnesium (Mg2+), chloride (Cl-), hydrogen phosphate (HPO42-), and hydrogen carbonate (HCO3-).
What’s really interesting is that the balance of electrolytes in the body’s cells affects hydration. Because of the way osmosis works, fluids that are isotonic (have an ideal balance of electrolytes for the body) will be able to be absorbed optimally by cells, leading to ideal hydration. 
Isn’t that weird, now you come to think about it? Pure water is not the most hydrating thing. We need something closer to our body’s actual balance for maximum absorption.
Note that the original recipe suggests (as an optional ingredient) to add sugar – and we say don’t! There is NO need for it, and we think the drink will be better (and more natural of course) without it. Also, scientists have stated that for the vast majority of people, drinks with added sugar actually counteract the benefits of exercise – despite the marketing hype. 
Electrolytes are lost, along with water, by sweating – however scientists have suggested that excessive supplementation with salt during or after exercise can cause harm. So go easy on the salt!
