Any medical or nutrition expert will tell you how important it is to stay hydrated; after all, it keeps everything in the body functioning properly. But when it comes to hydration, while water is crucial, so is maintaining electrolyte levels (like sodium and potassium). In fact, when electrolyte levels are off, it can lead to a range of unpleasant symptoms.

The people over at mindbodygreen have an easy homemade recipe for you below that will help you keep your electrolytes levels balanced.

Ingredients for a DIY electrolyte drink:

  • 1 cup of orange juice or coconut water.
  • ⅓ teaspoon salt.
  • ½ lemon squeezed.

Method: Stir until salt is dissolved and enjoy.

Note: Use orange juice with added calcium to meet those nutrient needs, as well.

Do yourself a favor and stir up this DIY drink. As sports nutritionist Jaclyn Sklaver explains, electrolytes are “minerals with an electric charge that help regulate fluid balance, regulate blood pressure, and make our muscles contract.”
