Which is the world's most popular beverage?
Answer: It's a toss-up between tea, wine and beer, besides water. Some will say tea, others, beer, while others pronounce that wine is more common throughout the world.
We musn't forget coffee... it's fast catching up to the others.
What is the most thirst quenching drink of all?
Answer: Actually, the best drink to quench your thirst is pure water with a pinch or two of electrolytes, lightly sweetened with a dash of sugar. The sugar is vital in helping the body absorb the liquid. The electrolytes provide valuable minerals that the body readily takes up through the gastro-intestinal barrier.
So, if you're lucky and are able to buy electrolytes in power form, you can make your own Electrolyte Beverage that will save you tons of money. Plus, you will avoid all the chemical additives and flavorings that are used in common premade electrolyte formulas.
Here's a terrific recipe for Electrolyte Wonder Beverage:
1 pinch of electrolyte powder, high quality.
2 pinches of natural raw sugar or a dash of raw honey. (If you use fruit juice, you can eliminate)
1/2 cup of your favorite natural fresh fruit juice with no additives, preferably organic, preferably non acidic
1 1/2 cups pure, fizzy, natural spring mineral water
Mix together gently and serve.
This will beat any soda for taste and healthiness, anywhere.
Great for athletes, wonderful for kids, and of course always consult with your physician for any products or recipes that you have any questions or concerns about.
We are ordinary folk who happen to believe that we know a really good thing when we discover or create it.
