Hydration is essential for athletic performance.

In fact, a mere 1% lack of hydration will hinder performance! Water is an important part of hydration, but so are electrolytes, sugar and salt. Make your own sports aid by combining 1/4 tsp sea salt, 1/2 cup fresh juice (such as orange, cherry, or grape), 4 cups coconut water, and 1 Tbsp honey (optional).
