According to Medline Plus “Electrolytes are important because they help balance the amount of water in your body, balance your body’s acid/base (pH) level, move nutrients into your cells, move wastes out of your cell, make sure that your nerves, muscles, heart, and brain work the way they should.”

Stocking up on electrolyte-rich sports drinks isn’t cheap and they aren’t always the healthiest.  It’s a good idea to know how to make your electrolyte drink that can also save you money.  You can also get creative with what flavor your electrolyte drink is by the type of fruit juice you use to make the drink.
