DIY Sports Drink
Do you have water or sports drink after exercising? A lot of people choose to have sports drink thinking it can replenish fluids quickly with a sweet delicious flavour. Sports drinks usually contain electrolytes, carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, and minerals. The concept is to provide the muscles with fuel, replenish body fluids and blood sugar, avoid cramping or heart weakness. To make it more appetizing, citric acid or spices may be added. For regular exercising such as jogging or yoga, water is usually enough and sports drink is suitable for intense exercises such as marathon, basketball. If you did not consume a lot of energy and have a lot of sports drink, it could cause weight gain and phlegm and dampness.
Once you understand the concept behind sports drink, you can try to make some yourself with simple ingredients: water (to replenish fluids), fresh fruits (carbohydrates), salt (sodium and potassium). It is cheaper to make without unnecessary additives.
