When we drinktoo much water too fast, we can lose our electrolytes. Our muscles and neurons – thecells that run the nervous system and brain, among others – are powered byelectrolytes. Obviously, depleting them will simply make us feel worse, not better. Theso-called experts disagree on how fast we can drink water, but two-four cups per houris reasonable.2. Lots of hungover folks prefer sports drinks for their high electrolyte content.Were not too fond of those drinks ourselves, since theyre loaded with sugar andadditives, however that is certainly an individual choice.3. When you drink your water add a couple of bananas. They are loaded withpotassium which is lost through the kidneys when drinking alcohol.Or you might prefer a smoothie with a couple of bananas and some milk. Apples,berries or other sweet fruits are acceptable if you dont have any bananas (or thethought of driving to a store makes you think about throwing up!)Use stevia or honey, though, instead of loading your drink up with sugar. Honey, forinstance, is loaded with electrolytes, and the less refined it is, the higher the power.
