Post workout drink

After a strenuous workout it is very possible that you are feeling tired and sore.  I see people at the gym walking around with a gallon of water. BIG MISTAKE. If you have sweated you must replace those electrolytes lost during sweat. My favorite remedy and concoction will take away all your aches and pains! It also leaves you refreshed after a workout rather than wanting to plop on the couch for the rest of the day.

Try this remedy after your workout:
1/2 cup coconut water
1/4 teaspoon turmeric 
pinch of black pepper'
pinch of salt

So why these ingredients? Let me explain......

  • Coconut water: Potassium is lost in sweat during a workout and replenishing it will help prevent any leg cramps. 
  • Turmeric: It is anti-inflammatory! Curcumin which is an important component in turmeric is what helps relieve that muscle soreness that comes 24-48 hours after a workout.
  • Black pepper: This helps the turmeric work!!! It stimulates the absorption of curcumin.
  • Salt: Helps replenish the sodium we have lost during the workout. By adding that salt you can avoid drinking sugary sport drinks like gatorade or powerade

Try it! And leave your comments below to let me know how you feel after trying this for a couple days!
