Staying or being well hydrated may give you an incredible improvement in energy, muscle health, decreased muscle pain, improved adrenals functions and decreased frequency of urination only by drinking this mix.
A version of “Gatorade” to support methylation without sugar, fructose, food coloring and preservatives.
What’s in It?
It contains good amounts of minerals and amino-acids which are needed to balance your electrolytes.
- And many other minerals and vitamins
My favorite electrolyte mix is Jigsaw Electrolyte supreme (berry or lemon flavor) you can find it here.
If you look for a more specific methylation support mix in a 1 Liter stainless steel water bottle:
- Filtered water
- Jigsaw Electrolyte Supreme add 1 scoop or so.
- Vitamin C Powder 1000 mg Klaire labs: add 1 scoop (if wanting more support – not essential though) too much can cause loose stools.
- Creatine (pure encapsulations) is my favorite one: add 1 to 2 scoops per liter (to support methylation)
How does it taste?
A bit sour, a bit salty, a bit sweet. I’ve had no complaints so far, even kids love it!
