Greetings all! We’ve discovered a great recipe for making your own alternative “sports drink” using natural, healthy ingredients.

First I’m going to go off on a full-on rant about sports drinks – and share what I think is some very valuable information. However, if you don’t want to read my polemic and reasons why I think sports drinks are Pure Evil – then just skip to the link right at the bottom of the article, “under the stars”. 🙂



Now then. To me, the very idea of sports should be synonymous with health, and the desire to be fit. Obviously! That being the case, however did it come to pass that some of the most famous “sports drinks” became total junk food, loaded with sugar, high fructose corn syrup, “evil” food coloring like Red #40 and Blue #1, and “natural flavors”?

Let me first kick the whole smokescreen that is “natural flavors” to the curb before going on. The FDA definition of “natural flavors” simply means that it was “extracted, distilled or otherwise derived from plant or animal matter”. [1] The FDA, astonishingly, does not require manufacturers to list any more detailed information on the source of the natural flavors! Also, there is no description whatsoever of how much processing these ingredients have undergone on their journey to becoming flavoring ingredients. In other words, “natural flavors” appears to mean essentially little more than “plant or animal derived substances”. That’s it – “natural as in derived from natural things”. Not “natural as in unprocessed.” Yes, you could be forgiven for thinking that this is a convenient loophole allowing the manufacturer to put in “any darn thing”. For example, it could be MSG. [2] And you will not know whether it is GMO, vegetable or animal. It’s not crushed rocks, you can be sure of that.

Ready to give up food with “natural flavors” in? You are in for a journey… they are in most packaged foods. You will see them everywhere now and be left wondering how this one got in “under the radar”. Welcome to the reality of “big food”.

Ok, moving on. Food coloring agents are widely considered “evil” – and have been linked to behavioral problems such as hyperactivity in children. The CSPI has urged the FDA to ban these toxic chemicals from food, and yet they remain. Synthetic food dyes have been suspected of disrupting children’s behavior since the 1970s – and there are numerous scientific studies supporting these claims. “Food” manufacturers still continue to use them, because they make the food brightly colored and thus more appealing to our easily-tricked ape brains.

Do I really need to go on? I haven’t even gotten to High Fructose Corn Syrup yet, or the Evil Plastic Bottles that our memory will be cursed for by future generations.



I will just say one more thing: Please stop putting garbage in your body! Stop it now! Read the labels, do your research, choose your food carefully and be good to yourself. The megacorps seriously don’t care. They just want you to keep stuffing yourself endlessly and it is not their problem. Their decisions are made for financial reasons and they will do whatever they can get away with.

*******

Ok, here is the link to the recipe for making your own natural “sports drink” which is pretty awesome, and contains lovely ingredients such as coconut water, pure fruit juice and other goodies:

The Simple Food Combination That DESTROYED Type 2 Diabetes In 74% Of Patients!

You will be AMAZED when you watch this incredible story that was recently featured by the world famous Dr. OZ.

Watch the video here:

diabetes

Rocco Wachman of Scottsdale, Arizona was overweight, diabetic and had the heart of an 85 year old… while being only in his 50's.

In just 28 days Rocco completely reversed his type 2 diabetes, got rid of his hypertension, acid reflux, successfully reduced the plaque on his arteries… came off his cholesterol and diabetes medication completely… and did all this just by changing his diet in a specific way

Watch the video to learn how he did it.

What’s even more astounding is that Dr. Michael Roizen, the chief medical consultant for the Dr. Oz show ASTONISHED viewers by calling this "Doable for everyone"!

Dr. Oz himself even stated that 90% of type 2 diabetics (over 200 MILLION people) can reverse their problem!

But how?

The secret is in the foods you eat, or more importantly, the foods you should AVOID.

Your diet is literally killing you. This is no exaggeration: Scientists have established firmly that chronic low-grade inflammation related to diet is responsible for the decrease of insulin sensitivity (aka insulin resistance) and high blood sugar leading to diabetes - as well as many other serious health problems.

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are now revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Watch this video to learn how it is done - and how Big Pharma is hiding the truth about diabetes.

    Personally, I drink coconut water by itself. Never drink soda. But for hydration, this is what I use. There are drinks called Recharge, they are OK but expensive. I buy the Jamaica (Hibiscus) from the Mexican market and make a sun tea with it. I like to add some fresh mint when it is growing in my yard. With the tea, there is a lot of Vitamin C. It is really great mixed with juice for hydrating. I have been sick in Mexico and gotten dehydrated. This stuff saved my ass. Was all I could drink. No added salt or sugars.

    Non-sprayed Dandylion flowers, bruised leaves and stems(and cleaned root-crushed) soaked in water is a total enzamatic healthy drink. Electrolytes in abundance! A quick pick-u-up. Let sit in cool water about 10 minutes before drinking
