Sports drinks may be tempting to reach for especially after a workout, but there are much healthier alternatives to help you refuel.
Chocolate milk has enough proteins to make it count as a great post-workout drink. It’s filled with calcium, potassium, sodium, and magnesium as well.
Pick sugar-free orange juice that’s high in antioxidants and has electrolytes just like sports drinks.
Coconut water will provide you with potassium, natural sugar, and hydrate you.
Tart Cherry Juice
Tart cherry juice is an awesome solution if you need something to reduce pain in your muscles after a workout.
Homemade Sports Drink
Make your own healthy version of sports drink at home by mixing coconut water, honey, sea salt, and a little lemon into your regular water.
Last but not least, water should be your most common choice for a workout drink. It’s pure hydration and there’s nothing your body needs more.
