Freshly squeezed fruit juicesElectrolyte Drinks can Help Boost Performance

Electrolyte drinks can help boost performance, giving you an energy hit and replacing vital minerals supporting optimal hydration and recovery.

The science behind it is complex (but fascinating). The key thing to remember is that low electrolyte levels after a workout can actually have a detrimental effect on physical recovery.

As you’ll probably know, I put a lot of focus into recovery after a hard workout because it’s absolutely vital! So, here’s some electrolyte recipes for you to try:

Himalayan Honey

  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups of raw coconut water
  • 2 tbsp organic raw honey or organic maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp Himalayan pink salt or Celtic sea salt (I like Himalayan better – it has 84 trace minerals)

And, here’s another!

Coco-Berry

  • A handful of your favourite berries – blueberries; strawberries; raspberries for a fab colour!
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups of raw coconut water
  • 2 tbsp organic raw honey or organic maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp Himalayan pink salt or Celtic sea salt

Experiment with my recipes. You might find that your personal preference is to have a little more honey and a little less salt. The coconut water contains potassium and sodium and raw honey is great for an instant energy hit. Freshly squeezed juice like lemons, limes and oranges contain vitamins, enzymes and easily digested sugars. Pink Himalayan Rock Salt is just fantastic so I have outlined a few of the benefits for you here:
