(Sugar-Free) Electrolyte Lemonade
I’m presently bliss-ing out on summer season. Since I solely have a couple of weeks left till grad faculty begins, I’ve been treating myself to each day yoga, lengthy afternoon walks, and stress-free within the evenings with an excellent e book (these are my present faves). The excellent news is that I really feel like I’ve actually upped my self-care recreation and hopefully this can make the transition into the busy fall a lot simpler.
With all this superior sunshine and each day motion, I’ve additionally been having fun with this sugar-free electrolyte lemonade. Certainly one of my huge adjustments I made to my food regimen again within the spring after I turned conscious of my adrenal fatigue was so as to add an excellent high quality electrolyte complement. I discovered that this easy change actually helped my vitality, stored me from crashing throughout/after my exercises, and simply typically made me really feel higher.
My present fave is the Vega Sport Electrolyte powder in lemon lime as a result of it’s sugar-free and doesn’t have any synthetic flavors/colours, in addition to gluten, dairy, or soy. I sometimes will combine a scoop of this with 32 ounces of water and drink this throughout my morning yoga class. Currently, I’ve been craving some extra electrolytes within the afternoon and night as effectively so I started making this sugar-free electrolyte lemonade to get pleasure from later within the day.
The important thing to creating a drink with electrolytes is so as to add an excellent high quality salt (for sodium) and magnesium complement (to replenish minerals). Coconut water can be fabulous for electrolyte substitute as a result of it’s excessive in potassium. I like coconut water and after I used to make this electrolyte lemonade years in the past, I’d use coconut water as the bottom. Nevertheless, as I’ve grown extraordinarily delicate to sugar, I’ve discovered that utilizing plain water on this drink works finest for my physique. You’ll be able to experiment and see what works finest for you as this recipe is definitely adaptable.
BTW, have you ever tried a magnesium complement but? I’ve talked about in earlier posts that I complement with magnesium as a result of it performs an enormous function within the physique and it’s typically laborious to get sufficient from meals attributable to mineral depletion within the soil.
Magnesium depletion in our our bodies is linked with insomnia, anxiousness and panic assaults, constipation and IBS signs, complications and migraines, fatigue, despair, elevated PMS signs, muscle spasms, and cramps (simply to call a couple of!)
Magnesium dietary supplements will be actually useful if you happen to endure from any of the above and for myself personally, I’ve seen that magnesium helps with my digestive points and anxiousness.

That is merely my very own analysis and my private expertise. Please know that youngsters below 4, pregnant or lactating girls, these with kidney issues, these with an obstructed bowel, or anybody presently on remedy ought to seek the advice of with their physician earlier than taking magnesium.)
My favourite magnesium complement is known as Pure Calm, which I’ve talked about right here on the weblog earlier than. If you mix Pure Calm with water, it creates a candy, bubbly drink that doesn’t comprise added sugar (because it’s sweetened with stevia) and it’s the right base for this lemonade! Pure Calm is available in a bunch of various flavors and I personally love their raspberry-lemon taste the most effective.
Hope you’re having a beautiful finish to your summer season!
