How to Make Electrolyte Powder

In the pursuit of maintaining optimal health and wellness, staying hydrated is a must. Electrolytes, which include essential minerals like sodium, potassium, and magnesium, play a crucial role in regulating hydration, muscle contractions, and nerve functions.

Many commercial electrolyte supplements have added sugars and artificial ingredients which many people try to avoid. If that's the case, we will go over how to make your own electrolyte powder at home. We'll explore the benefits of electrolytes and give a simple recipe with common ingredients at home to create your own electrolyte powder.

Understanding Electrolytes:

Before delving into the recipe, it's essential to understand the significance of electrolytes in the body. Sodium helps maintain fluid balance, potassium aids muscle contractions, and magnesium supports overall muscle and nerve function. Sweating or dehydration can cause mineral loss, so it's important to replace them for good health and hydration.

DIY Electrolyte Powder Recipe:

Creating your own electrolyte powder is simple and requires readily available ingredients. Use sea salt for sodium, salt substitutes for potassium, and magnesium citrate for magnesium in your recipe. To enhance the flavor and add a lemony twist, include citric acid. Experiment with ratios to find the perfect blend that suits your taste preferences and individual hydration needs.

Many people prefer to use Pink Himalayan Sea Salt as opposed to other salts. Ondori uses Pink Himalayan Pink Salt in our Electrolyte Powder Mix. Use what you feel is best for your body.

For additional flavor, consider using a natural fruit powder to blend into your drink as well. You can choose any fruit powder that you like for flavoring. Ondori utilizes real natural fruit powder, including our lychee powder, into our mixes compared to other commercial electrolyte mixes.

Many people ask does electrolyte powder expire? 

The answer is different for each powder, but Ondori's Electrolytes have a two year shelf life. 

Making electrolyte powder at home can be challenging. However, if you have Sodium, Potassium, and Magnesium, you should be ready to proceed.
