Gatorade and other electrolyte drinks

Electrolytes specific functions are a mystery to me, but I know they are important to curing hangovers or just helping your body to recover from any kind of rigorous event. A few you might recognize are potassium, sodium and calcium and they are basically essential to allowing your body to rehydrate.

You could get these by drinking “a simple electrolyte drink made by using the correct proportions of water, sugar, salt, salt substitute for potassium, and baking soda” (thanks Wikipedia). Or you could keep sports drinks like Gatorade on hand.

Your choice.
