On Hydration and Electrolytes

Every now and then there's a thread asking methodsto stay hydrated in a game.

Everyone mentions gatorade or poweraide, etc... sports drinks often contain a lot of unnecessary processed sugars. (bad for those worried about diabetes)

Here's a short article on a few food suggestions on how to replenish the 5 electrolytes we burn with strenuous physical activity.

(basic gatorade only has sodium in minuscule amounts, powerade has sodium and potassium in super tiny amounts)

sodium
chloride
potassium
calcium
magnesium

Just remember those 5 when you start shopping for supplementing drinks or pills.
