Homemade Electrolyte Drink
Shockingly, drinking more water isn’t always the answer to dehydration. Dehydration is often not a lack of water, but a lack of electrolytes and trace minerals. When our electrolytes are depleted, the body isn’t able to gain hydration benefits from the water we drink, even if we are drinking a lot of it each day.
If we are getting up 2–3 times in the middle of the night to urinate, or urinating every hour during the day even if we are not drinking much water, we probably need electrolyte supplementation.
Electrolytes (minerals) like sodium, potassium, and calcium are found inside and outside of cells, and water is also found inside and outside of cells. Electrolytes help regulate fluid levels in the body by creating gradients for water to flow into and out of cells.
