Citrus fruits are warm climate fruits full of juice. They are commonly used for cleansing and cooling the body down. For all workouts that last more than an hour, you will want to keep your electrolyte balance at optimum levels. There is no need to buy pasteurized electrolyte drinks that are nutrient depleted when you can make your own organic electrolyte drink. Let’s energize and optimize with:
2 Medium Oranges Peeled
4 Lemons Peeled
12 Limes Peeled
2 Tablespoons of Honey or Agave
Pinch Sea Salt
2 Quarts of Pure Water
Juice all fruits adding salt, sweetener and water to the fruit juice. You may also blend all fruits and strain then press the juice into a container with the 2 quarts of water, sweeten and add the salt. Drink 4 oz. after your workout or every 20 minutes during a long sports event.
