Homemade Sports Drinks For Excessive Sweaters

Homemade Sports Drinks For Excessive Sweaters

It seems like everywhere you look, be it in magazines, television commercials or store displays, there are sports drinks being focused upon. They tend to lean towards the idea of people who exercise simply must have a sports drink in order to re-balance this or that level in their system.

One potential problem is however: Have you noticed how expensive these “must have” beverages are? Yes, it’s true that our body requires a certain level of electrolytes, sodium and potassium, but you don’t need to spend a fortune in the process even if you sometimes sweat excessively. Keep reading and you’ll find a couple of recipes to make your own sports drink, without the heavy price tag attached to it.

Recipe #1 - This is a basic recipe for homemade sports drinks.


7 oranges 2 limes 3 lemons 1 cup sugar or sweetener (such as Sugar Twin or Splenda) 1 tsp salt 2 quarts water 1 large pitcher

1 – Begin by slicing your fruit in half with a sharp knife. 2 – Using a hand-held juicer, begin juicing your fruit. Be sure to remove any seeds as well as extra pulp. 3 – Pour juice into your pitcher. 4 – Pour sugar and salt into your pitcher. 5 – Fill the rest of the pitcher with water and stir.

Pour your sports drink into single-serving sized bottles and refrigerate for at least one hour.

Recipe # 2 - This is a family favorite.


900ml water 1/4 tsp salt 100 ml grenadine or flavored syrup

1 – Gather all ingredients 2 – Mix ingredients in a 1 liter bottle 3 – Do not cool this sports drink; your body would then need to warm it before digesting, resulting in the ability to use it as fuel being slower as well.

Recipe # 3 - This is a more complex recipe.


1/4 ounce unsweetened drink mix (enough for 2 quarts, your choice of flavor) 1/2 teaspoon table salt 1/4 teaspoon salt substitute (potassium chloride; eg. Morton Salt Substitute) 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 cup fructose in granular form (or 1/4 cup plus 2 tbs. corn syrup) 1/2 teaspoon citric acid (or 2 tbs. lemon juice) 2 quarts water

1 – Combine all ingredients in large pitcher. 2 – Stir until well mixed. 3 – Keep refrigerated until needed.

Note: If needed, experiment with sugar or sweetener to achieve your preferred taste.

Recipe # 4 - Low carbohydrate


1 cup (8 oz) water 2 tablespoon lemon juice small pinch of salt Flavoring and sweetener to taste

Ideas for flavoring: Crystal light flavor packets, unsweetened beverage powder such as Kool-aid or sugar-free flavored syrups.

By using these simple recipes, you are saving money by not buying name brand sports drinks. You will also be prepared and able to stay properly hydrated while engaged in physical activity even if you sometimes sweat excessively. Our health is such an important thing, and keeping ourselves fit without depriving our bodies of the liquid they need to function properly is quite a challenge.
