You can easily maintain your electrolyte balance with a healthy, varied diet high in electrolyte-rich foods like bananas, avocados, and spinach. Coconut water is also a great natural source of electrolytes. However, following an intense exercise session, the dreaded hot flushes, eating foods full of refined salts, a sauna or any other strenuous and sweaty activity (including a stressful day in the office, which also depletes electrolytes), I recommend using an electrolyte solution for rapid hydration.
Many people reach for sports drinks like Gatorade or Powerade instead of plain water, but I would advise against this. These drinks boast about being packed with electrolytes, but in reality, they’re just highly coloured cordials with a bit of extra salt & way too much sugar in them; thus, triggering inflammation, resulting in brain fog and weight gain, particularly around the mid-section due to insulin spikes.Since I love to exercise and get my sweat on, I’ve come up with my own electrolyte solution that not only rehydrates but also aids the body in flushing out toxins (aka water retention).
