How To Make Your Own All-Natural Sports DrinkPhoto – WellnessMama.com

Greetings all! We’ve discovered a great recipe for making your own alternative “sports drink” using natural, healthy ingredients.

First I’m going to go off on a full-on rant about sports drinks – and share what I think is some very valuable information. However, if you don’t want to read my polemic and reasons why I think sports drinks are Pure Evil – then just skip to the link right at the bottom of the article, “under the stars”. 🙂

Now then. To me, the very idea of sports should be synonymous with health, and the desire to be fit. Obviously! That being the case, however did it come to pass that some of the most famous “sports drinks” became total junk food, loaded with sugar, high fructose corn syrup, “evil” food coloring like Red #40 and Blue #1, and “natural flavors”?

Let me first kick the whole smokescreen that is “natural flavors” to the curb before going on. The FDA definition of “natural flavors” simply means that it was “extracted, distilled or otherwise derived from plant or animal matter”. [1] The FDA, astonishingly, does not require manufacturers to list any more detailed information on the source of the natural flavors! Also, there is no description whatsoever of how much processing these ingredients have undergone on their journey to becoming flavoring ingredients. In other words, “natural flavors” appears to mean essentially little more than “plant or animal derived substances”. That’s it – “natural as in derived from natural things”. Not “natural as in unprocessed.” Yes, you could be forgiven for thinking that this is a convenient loophole allowing the manufacturer to put in “any darn thing”. For example, it could be MSG. [2] And you will not know whether it is GMO, vegetable or animal. It’s not crushed rocks, you can be sure of that.

Ready to give up food with “natural flavors” in? You are in for a journey… they are in most packaged foods. You will see them everywhere now and be left wondering how this one got in “under the radar”. Welcome to the reality of “big food”.

Ok, moving on. Food coloring agents are widely considered “evil” – and have been linked to behavioral problems such as hyperactivity in children. The CSPI has urged the FDA to ban these toxic chemicals from food, and yet they remain. Synthetic food dyes have been suspected of disrupting children’s behavior since the 1970s – and there are numerous scientific studies supporting these claims. “Food” manufacturers still continue to use them, because they make the food brightly colored and thus more appealing to our easily-tricked ape brains.

Do I really need to go on? I haven’t even gotten to High Fructose Corn Syrup yet, or the Evil Plastic Bottles that our memory will be cursed for by future generations.

I will just say one more thing: Please stop putting garbage in your body! Stop it now! Read the labels, do your research, choose your food carefully and be good to yourself. The megacorps seriously don’t care. They just want you to keep stuffing yourself endlessly and it is not their problem. Their decisions are made for financial reasons and they will do whatever they can get away with.

*******

Ok, here is the link to the recipe for making your own natural “sports drink” which is pretty awesome, and contains lovely ingredients such as coconut water, pure fruit juice and other goodies:

Take These 8 Nutrients 1 Hour Before Bed To Boost Deep Sleep And Metabolic Regeneration By 695%:

Do you ever have trouble "turning off your brain", or experience anxiety, poor sleep or high stress?

It's called Shallow Sleep Syndrome... and it affects a HUGE number of people in the modern age.

Also - have you gained weight - even though you are "doing what you always did"? *raises hand*

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you MUST watch this video:

Most people are unaware that your sleep and your weight are connected!

Science has proved without doubt that your body cannot function without adequate DEEP sleep.

Deep sleep facilitates Metabolic regeneration - which repairs tissues (including brain cells), rebuilds health and restores your ability to convert food to energy instead of fat.

Deep sleep also supports the production of Human Growth Hormone - which is considered the "fountain of youth" by anti-aging experts.

Without sufficient deep sleep, our natural production and growth of Human Growth Hormone is obliterated!

Your Metabolism is wrecked and you have dramatically increased risk of serious disease!

But it gets worse - lack of deep sleep also suppresses the hunger-regulating hormone Leptin, which results in runaway food cravings and the metabolic dysfunction responsible for "inexplicable" weight gain.

Our natural levels of deep sleep decline in our 30's and even more in our 40's, which leads to metabolic slowdown and consequently, increased signs of aging.

However a dangerous new problem has entered the arena.... technology.

The culprit?

The screen of your cell phone, tablet, laptop, computer and television!

In addition to the High Stress of our Modern Lifestyle, the blue light emitted by the screens of our electronic devices is Wreaking Absolute Havoc on our physiological ability to achieve the previous deep sleep that we need so badly! This also is scientifically established!

The blue light emitted by smartphones, TV, computer monitors, tablets, laptop and blue LEDs has a similar effect on our bodies as bright sunlight - messing up our circadian rhythms and confusing our bodies about whether we should be awake or asleep!

Blue Light KILLS Deep Sleep!

Blue light, especially in the evenings and night time, destroys our bodies ability to produce its natural deep sleep hormones!

Once these hormones are gone, so is the deep sleep responsible for the body's natural fat burning power.

Can you now see the simple link between our modern lifestyle and out of control weight gain so many are experiencing?

Fortunately - nature has the answer (as always)...

    Personally, I drink coconut water by itself. Never drink soda. But for hydration, this is what I use. There are drinks called Recharge, they are OK but expensive. I buy the Jamaica (Hibiscus) from the Mexican market and make a sun tea with it. I like to add some fresh mint when it is growing in my yard. With the tea, there is a lot of Vitamin C. It is really great mixed with juice for hydrating. I have been sick in Mexico and gotten dehydrated. This stuff saved my ass. Was all I could drink. No added salt or sugars.

    Non-sprayed Dandylion flowers, bruised leaves and stems(and cleaned root-crushed) soaked in water is a total enzamatic healthy drink. Electrolytes in abundance! A quick pick-u-up. Let sit in cool water about 10 minutes before drinking
