What can i drink to naturally restore my electrolytes?

Don’t say drink gatorade or powerade, none of those artificial drinks with added sugars, they’re horrible for you. Any natural things to drink that give you electrolytes? Like orange juice, or guava juice, i have no clue I’m just putting stuff up as an example.

    eat salt…but not a whole lot. eat a banana. Or if you really have to only drink something, get one of those new smart waters.

    Water. It is rare that you will need to restore your electrolyte level unless you have a severe condition. For example, my mom has cancer and her doctor tells her that she needs to up her electrolyte level by drinking a sports drink. So they are not always bad for you if that is what you are looking to replenish. If you need the sugar part just drinking sugar water will sufice. If it is dehydration drink water.

    My coach used to swear by eating celery. Then again, she was allergic to everything.
    I hate drinking gatorade too, so see if you can find a home-made recipe anywhere, and make your own with less sugar.
    The only other thing I can offer, is keep your electrolytes high and balanced by making sure three things are in your diet.
    Calcium, Magnesium, and Potassium.

    Cheers.

    Pedialyte a drink for little kids but it is specially balanced to rehydrate and restore your system, doesn’t have a lot of sugar like sports drinks but is designed to help you get better fast.

    Here is a excerpt from the pedialyte website:
    “You might be surprised to learn that sports drinks, sweetened sodas and juices don’t meet medical guidelines for helping prevent dehydration due to diarrhea and vomiting in kids. In general, these drinks are too high in carbohydrates (sugar) and too low in sodium – an important electrolyte that is lost during diarrhea and vomiting. Plus, drinks containing too much sugar may make diarrhea worse.

    Pedialyte is specially formulated to quickly replace lost fluids and electrolytes due to diarrhea and vomiting so your child can rehydrate quickly and feel better fast.”
    I am just guessing, but is this because of all that milk you drank?

    you’re right, all those commercial electrolyte drinks are full of chemicals and sugars.
    Make your own by dissolving 1 and 1/2 teaspoons sea salt, (not regular table salt) with 2 teaspoons raw honey or real maple syrup (not mrs butterworth type, that isn’t real) and the juice of a fresh real lemon or lime in a quart of warm water. then chill if you like it cold.
    the sea salt contains all the necessary minerals, the maple syrup or honey contains B vitamins, and the lemon/lime gives it vitamin C and flavor.
    (it’s the salt/sugar combo that gives the cells the electrolytes to function properly and maintain fluid balance when the body is under stress like intense exercise or extreme heat)

    It depends on your use – if you are just sitting around, you probably get plenty of salt already, and a little OJ would give you everything else you might need.

    If you are drinking during a long distance event (run, swim, bike) over 60 minutes, you might want the following.

    carb – 60 to 80 g/L
    Na – 500 to 1000 mg/L
    K – 200 to 250 mg/L
    Ca – 50 mg/L
    Mg – 25 mg/L
    Zinc – 1 mg/L

    If you are doing a distance event over 60 minutes you might want to use 6 to 8 percent carbohydrate of some form.

    Juices are usually a little low on the Na (sodium) and the carbs, so you could add a small amount (1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon) of salt and 6 to 8 percent of some carb.

    You could mix 100 or 200 ml carrot juice with water and then add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of salt. The same with some of the other juices. And then add whatever amount of carb (i.e. sugar) that you want.

    4 juices look about like this:

    carrot juice
    carb – 93
    Na – 290
    K – 2929
    Ca – 240
    Mg – 140
    Z – 1.8

    Apple Juice
    carb – 123
    Na – 31
    K – 1254
    Ca – 74
    Mg – 31
    Z – 0.3

    OJ
    carb – 115
    Na – 21
    K – 2030
    Ca – 116
    Mg – 105
    Z – 0.5

    grape juice
    carb – 161
    Na – 32
    K – 1418
    Ca – 96.7
    Mg – 107.4
    Z – 0.5
