Sports drinks are all the rage right now – so many flavors, colors, and promises to keep you hydrated during a workout. You’ll even see famous athletes selling these products. If you drink a sport beverage you can become a high-performing athlete too, right? Not quite.
I am surprised that athletes even put this stuff in their bodies. I don’t know how our bodies can perform at high peak filled with sugar, artificial flavors, added chemicals, and petroleum-based artificial colors galore. Some of these drinks even contain as much sugar as a regular soda.
I have a much better alternative that not only hydrates but also tastes fantastic. This Cucumber Lime Electrolyte Refresher is invigorating. Only three ingredients, nothing artificial, and no sugar added. I even enjoy drinking this mixed with sparkling water at summer barbecues. It helps keep me hydrated in the Arizona heat.
Hydration is very important. Coconut water has a ton of electrolytes and potassium that will help keep you hydrated and prevent you from getting muscle cramps. Coconut water is completely natural and very low in sugar. I must say that I am not a big fan of the taste of coconut water on its own, but I can’t even taste it when it is mixed with cucumber and lime.
Give it a try and let me know what you think. Stay hydrated my friends!
