Summer can be a challenging time to stay properly hydrated, especially if you practice hot yoga! This simple recipe can keep you cool, hydrated and boost your electrolytes all Summer long!
This drink is especially good for those with low blood pressure. Those with high blood pressure may want to consult their physician before regularly consuming any electrolyte supplement. Taking a supplement drink like this helps to balance the fluids in the body at the cellular level. Those who practice regularly may also want to consider adding a magnesium supplement to their daily routine as it is required for proper muscular functioning (relieves excess muscular tension/pain).
Consuming electrolytes for those who sweat a lot (that’s us, hot yogis!!!) helps to regulate blood pressure and body temperature, prevent dehydration, stimulate proper muscular contraction. It also prevents cramping and maintains proper blood pH and cell wall integrity.
