Dehydration Electrolyte Recipe
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 Tablespoons of white sugar
1 litre of clean water
Mix in jug and whisk or place in bottle and shake, sip gradually.
Pure and if possible organic fruit juice (check that it is not a fruit drink, it is actual juice, pure juice)
Water or Green Tea
Sea salt preferably Himalayan salt, or organic sea salt these have more minerals in them.

Fill a water bottle half with juice and half with water, add a pinch of sea salt and shake until dissolved.
This is great to make up for crew at the start of passage as a preventative to dehydration due to sea sickness as well as great to sip in tropical countries when sweating so much and salts/minerals are being removed at a high rate from the body.
Chef's especially suffer from dehydration so making a sports drink up daily can be a preventive measure and just keep up the fluids.
|Himalayan Salt often has a pink tinge to it,|
has over 84 minerals and trace elements.
