Lemon Lime Electrolyte Replenishing Drink

This lemon lime electrolyte replenishing drink is one of my favourites as I am a big lemon lime drink kind of guy. The taste is awesome and the ingredients are all natural as there are no fillers and no preservatives.

The idea behind this drink is to help replenish lost electrolytes during exercise. Depending on how hard you exercise, you will sweat out a lot important electrolytes including sodium and potassium. It’s important to note that decreased levels of electrolytes, sodium in particular can lead to muscle cramps, headaches and dizziness. Not only that, we really want to make sure our muscles are operating at their best and in order to do that we need to make sure our electrolyte levels are topped up.

Personally, I use electrolyte replenishing drinks after my cardio and ab sessions. The main reason is because I sweat quite a bit during my cardio sessions. My cardio sessions can last 45 minutes to an hour and in that time I will sweat our close to a gram of sodium. The thing is, when I am burning fat I reduce my daily sodium intake to less than 2.5 grams per day. After sweating out that much sodium (and potassium) my body is pretty shaky. I use this drink to replenish lost sodium and potassium levels with just enough carbohydrates to help kick start my day.

In addition, I need to make sure my electrolyte levels are topped up to ensure quick recovery. Remember, the sooner you can recover from a workout the faster and more effective your results are going to be!

So, what will you need for this electrolyte replenishing drink?

Juice from two fresh limes

¼ cup fresh lemon juice (from one lemon)

1 cup of coconut water

2 tablespoons of honey

1/8 tsp of sea salt

Plus 4 to 5 ice cubes

To make, simply squeeze the juice from the limes and lemon. Pour into a blender along with the coconut water, honey, sea salt and ice cubes. Blend on high for about 30 seconds until the ice cubes are crushed. Pour into a glass and enjoy.
