How to Make Your Own Sports Drink


, ,

I have been scouting for alternatives to commercial sports and protein drinks for a while. The reason is because just about all energy drinks and protein drinks on the market are full of sweeteners and artificial additives. I don't know about you but I don't think drinking anything containing artificial ingredients at a time when your body needs the nutrients the most is going to benefit you short term and definitely not long term.

Here is how to make Power Tea

This tea can be used for anyone and not just athletes. One of the main ingredients is Gelatin, Gelatin from Beef is the preferred choice but unless you live in the U.S.A. it can be difficult to get hold of. At the time of writing this I am not aware of anyone in the E.U. selling Gelatin from Beef. If anyone reading this knows anyone who supplies Gelatin from Beef in Europe please send me an email.

To make Power Tea dissolve one to two level tablespoons of Great Lakes Gelatin per cup of boiling water. If you prefer you could mix it into a little water at room temperature just before adding the boiling water.

You can flavour the tea with ginger; ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory herb. Or you could use peppermint herbal tea or both. You can also add half a tablespoon of coconut oil with each tea.

On the other hand you don't need to do either, you can just drink it straight. Power tea can be consumed 3 times daily and a way to make it convenient is to make a thermos with 3 cups in the morning and drink it throughout the day.

Power tea builds strong and powerful ligaments, tendons, cartilage and muscle. It can also help enhance mental and emotional power. The tea is complete protein and high in amino acids, your body will be able to absorb and make the most of all of it.

If you are a lean athlete in intensive training you may add 2 teaspoons of dextrose per cup of Power Tea.
