Electrolyte Drink Recipe


Recommended Posts

Since electrolyte balance can be a problem during withdrawal and things like Gatorade and other commercial products may not be tolerated due to artificial ingredients and too much sugar (I can't drink any of them) I have taken to using a homemade recipe that my nutritionist sent me. I use no sugar added apple juice, no sugar added cranberry juice, lemon juice, and salt. I make ice cubes out of the apple and cranberry juice and keep them in a bag in the freezer.


16 oz glass

2 apple juice cubes

1 cranberry juice cube

pinch of salt

splash of lemon juice

fill remaining space in glass with water


All ingredients are low histamine / anti-histamine and as long as you buy products with nothing artificial it works. This provides potassium and sodium and vitamin C as well as other nutrients.


If you want to try it I suggest trying the individual ingredients first to make sure you are good to go and then give it a try. You might like it or you may find it absolutely disgusting. I happen to like it.


There are lots of similar recipes online that you can use with things like pomegranate juice, etc. This is just the one that I like.


I start out every day with this drink. In the morning I also add to it 1 teaspoon of pure psylium fiber husk for a fiber boost as well as 1/4 teaspoon crushed ginger for gut motility. Much better than Metamucil and other commercial products that have coloring's and other artificial ingredients.
