Sports drinks

Hydration is vital for anyone especially those involved in sport and activity.

Water is excellent but isotonic drinks are really useful to replenish.

Isotonic means in balance with the body fluids. So these drinks replace nutrients lost during activity.

While there are lots on the market here are my simple home made ones. Both very cheap to make.

Mabel's isotonic drink 1

400g glucose ( very cheap from a chemist or supermarket)
1 litre water
splash of low calorie squash for flavour
pinch of salt

Mabel's isotonic drink 2

500 ml fruit juice such as apple or orange
500ml water
pinch of salt

For rapid absorption both are better taken un-chilled
