Do you know that nagging, dragging feeling you get when you are about halfway through your pole class, or partway through that bellydance class? The feeling like you can’t push your body one bit more?
Well, we have great news for you: this ultimate energy booster tonic will not only help motivate you to get moving, it will also help you go harder for longer no matter what physical activity you are doing!
This is because strenuous exercise leads to a buildup of lactic acid – which can cause muscle pain and fatigue. Baking soda has been found to boost performance in athletes due to its ability to neutralize lactic acid buildup.
- ½ teaspoon unprocessed sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- 7 cups coconut water
- ½ cup lemon juice
- ¼ cup raw honey
- Heat the coconut water on low and mix in baking soda until it is dissolved.
- Add other ingredients and pour mixture into glass jar.
- Shake well before use.
- This will keep for a week in the refrigerator.
Coconut water: Although coconut water has a deceptively light consistency, it has higher levels of minerals such as iron, magnesium, manganese, calcium and zinc than many fruits, including the famously healthy orange. Additionally, coconut water has high amounts of B-vitamins, such as niacin, thiamin, riboflavin and pyridoxine.
One of the best benefits of coconut water is that it is extremely high in potassium. As your body sweats during exercise or vigorous physical activity, your level of potassium drops. Coconut water has approximately 250 milligrams of potassium and 105 milligrams of sodium in every 100 milliliter serving.
Raw honey: One of the substantial benefits of choosing raw organic honey from your area is that it contains immune stimulating properties from the area where the bees collected pollen. This means that it can actually help to desensitize you to local allergens, potentially lessening your allergy symptoms.
