3 ways to replace lost electrolytes


UpdatedTrends.com: The human body needs electrolytes which are essential elements found in the foods we eat. During a workout or any other physical activity, the body tends to lose electrolytes faster than you replace them. The elements like potassium and sodium are essential for the body to function properly. Here are a few ways to replace the lost electrolytes.

1. Bananas – Eating bananas are the best way to replace lost potassium. Have one and take the other to the gym. Take a glass of water which will help in the absorption. Even a slice of water melon could help when energy levels dip.

2. Water and salt – Take 8oz of water and add a pinch of salt to it. Drink the solution slowly. If you are sick or if you have worked out for more than 40 minutes then this is the best way for your body to absorb sodium.

3. Sports drink – One does not have to go to the market and buy a sports drink. You can make your own with just ¼ tsp salt, ¼ tsp baking soda, ½ cup orange juice and 1 tbsp sugar and mix this with 1 litre of water. But make sure that you do not skip any of the ingredients.

So the next time you are out doing some strenuous work or your daily workout, remember these handy home remedies to replace your lost electrolytes.
