When I found out the reality about the active ingredients in Gatorade or Powerade, I instantly began making a homemade sports drink!
I have not drank Gatorade in years even though I'm still a quite energetic individual and love to workout. The fact is, the ingredients in both Gatorade as well as Powerade are garbage and this info has to be discussed. For myself, I use coconut water or fresh made juice and it hydrates me and replenishes my electrolytes just great.
I think its disgusting that 40 years ago scientists were paid by certain sports drink firms to tell us we would not have the ability to hydrate ourselves with just ordinary water and that our children did not consume enough during their meals, or that our performance would fall off during sporting events if we didn't consume this artificially flavored, colored sodium water.
I think its absurd that some medical professionals still advise these unpleasant drinks that are full of synthetic elements, to dad and moms with sick children.
This simply makes me crazy with exactly what they are pushing on the public. Gatorade & Powerade drinks include GMOs, synthetic food dyes, and artificial additives. Seems delicious, doesn't it? I'll pass! This homemade sports drink, however, has none, just real, all-natural substances that you can identify as well as can pronounce! And, it's ideal to have after being in the sun all day long, this will certainly hydrate you quickly and also provide you a major dosage of nourishment!
Lets discuss the dietary elements of this homemade sports drink to offer you an idea of simply how effective it is. This beverage has a little bit more fruit juice than I typically would advise for green drinks, reason being that you'll be consuming this after you have actually shed a lot of calories, and lost electrolytes & sweat! If you really feel that's excessive fruit juice in your homemade sports drink, just cut the fruit ingredients in half.
Watermelon: has a high water content for hydrating you quick and lycopene that aids in protecting your skin from way too much sunlight exposure.
Green Apple: delivers potassium and also magnesium that assists with migraines connected to dehydration.
Cucumber: One of the most effective veggies for organic hydration.
Celery: An all-natural resource of salt, potassium, magnesium, chloride, and phosphorus.
Orange: A strong dose of vitamin C that assists in increasing the immune system.
Romaine: An additional wonderful dosage of magnesium to help in avoiding dehydration and some calcium for bone health and wellness.
