Homemade Hydration Drink

Ever had a hangover, diarrhea, or just an active day where you just didn’t get enough beverages? Dehydration is a phobia of mine… which is an okay match for someone with a beverage obsession. I discovered this simple recepie made out of stuff everyone has in their kitchen (after a trip to Mexico… if you know what I mean). Water alone really can’t rehydrate you and replenish the electrolites you need… and now you don’t have to buy expensive sport drinks. Measure exactly for best results. Drink a batch of this and you’ll be on your way back to normal. It works.

  • 1 quart (950 ml) water
  • ½ teaspoon (2.5 g) baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon (2.5 g) table salt
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons (45 to 60 g) sugar
  • If available, add ¼ teaspoon (1.25 g) salt substitute, such as “Lite Salt”

    But why do we add baking soda?! Is it to maintain Na : Cl ratio, or is it something else?

    can you overdose on home made hydrant? If you have at least a litre a day and have been doing this for years, surely you are flushing rather than hydrating
