‘Tis the season… cold, flu and stomach viruses are going around. Now is a more important season than ever to ensure that our body’s stay hydrated. Staying hydrated is one of the optimal things you can do for your health.
Hydration helps to build and ensure that your immune system is functioning properly. Maintaining adequate levels of hydration also helps flush out toxins and oxygenates your blood.
However, there are many situations that may arise where you might find yourself needing to replenish lost electrolytes in order to prevent dehydration. Whether it be from working out, morning sickness or a stomach bug.
A simple rehydration solution that I have grown to love over the last few months is Homemade Orange Electrolyte Drink Recipe. A drink that you can make at home without having to spend tons of money on the store brand stuff.
This recipe has come in really handy while I try to manage morning sickness. I like to freeze the mixture and whenever I have to bow down to the porcelain gods, I treat myself to an electrolyte ice cube afterwards.
