Do you suffer from light-headedness, poor concentration, heart palpitations, or muscle cramps?
The answer could be your daily water intake. We all know that dehydration can hinder your athletic ability and be a HUGE health risk.
However for those water obsessed individuals, drinking too much water without replenishing your electrolytes can be highly detrimental to your health as well.
A few of the best natural mineral supplements are a higher quality salt supplement such as pink Himalayan sea salt, citrus, coconut water, or bone broth.
Pink Himalayan Sea Salt – sprinkle a bit in your water through-out the day. You shouldn’t be able to taste the salt.
Coconut Water – packed with electrolytes and perfect to put in a smoothie or to chug on its own. I prefer this brand due to zero additives. Look at ingredients and make sure it isn’t from concentrate.
Bone Broth – try and get grass-fed, pasture-raised bones for your broth. And don’t be afraid to use the odd parts such as the feet. I love Wellness Mama and her recipe is amazing!
Lemon juice is also another source. Squeeze some in your water and you can also get a boost of Vitamin C.
Try and avoid the artificial electrolyte supplements such as Gatorade and Power-ade. They just provide excessive sugar, artificial flavors, and color dyes. These three ingredients can lead to full-body inflammation and drastically slow your recovery process.
