Re: [RC] recipe for human electrolytes? - Glenda R. Snodgrass

Thanks to all who responded to my query.  

I tried the homemade recipe yesterday (using 1 tsp. frozen orange juice
concentrate and 1/8 tsp salt to 8 oz water) and it worked well for me.  I
didn't add any sugar, just didn't seem to need it, the taste was fine
without it (not great but certainly drinkable), and I felt great.

I also ordered some Electro-Mix from Alacer Corp.
(http://www.alacercorp.com) which is a powdered mix with no sweetener of
any kind added.  Alacer has several no-sugar options and this one seemed
the best for me.  I'd be concerned about orange juice going bad in the
heat, when I have to mix it up several hours ahead of time and can't keep
it in a cooler, so I wanted some powdered mix type as a backup for all-day
