Restoring Electrolytes During Hot Weather Activities
Members Were Sparked
Since the weather is really hot sometimes water alone is not enough when you're doing activities that make you sweat a lot. I found Powerade Zero which has electrolytes and has zero calories. I drink some of it when hiking in the heat along with water to make sure I'm not just flushing all the electrolytes out of my system. Sweating and water alone sometimes depletes your system so this is a great tasting and zero cal way to make sure electrolytes are restored.
