Drinking water is a great idea in the summer (or any other time of the year) but sometimes you need something more when you’re spending a lot of time in the heat. Having a source of electrolytes is a smart idea. Products like Gatorade often have artificial colors and sweeteners, so you should pick a healthier option. We have a number of products at Sigrid’s, in a mix of flavors and many are sugar-free.
Many include a blend of daily multivitamins, or some added immunity boosters. Sports-oriented products from BioSteel come in a ready-to-drink format for when you don’t want to fiddle with powders and water bottles.
Whatever your preference, electrolytes are vital to staying healthy in the heat, especially if you are working (or playing) hard outside.
