Possible Solution for Exhaustion

I've been really tired lately. Unnaturally tired. Like back in the days when I had anemia tired.

Last night, I read in a magazine where one girl found that her fatigue problem was due to 100+ degree heat lowering her electrolytes.

Given that we've had 100+ temps for too many days in a row to count, I think it is a good possibility.

Gatorade replenishes electrolytes...as does Pedialyte. However, Gatorade has food dyes and Pedialyte...well, it just tastes awful. I have a product in my pantry called 40,000 Volts which you can mix with natural juice.

The girl in the magazine used EmergenC (which I also have on hand), broccoli and bananas (which I bought last night with the magazine).

I hope this is the answer. I am way tired of being tired.

Interesting. Since Nate is a grad student at UF we use the health care center on campus. Almost every time we go in Gatorade is the part of the answer for whatever is wrong for us and we are given free Gatorade. Unfortunately, the only give out the 2 original flavors. You would think at the home of Gatorade we could at least get some of the better tasting flavors. Surprisingly it does help with headaches.

Oh, I don't miss the 100+ summers.

If you're looking for a full-spectrum electrolyte product without all the junk of Gatorade or Pedialyte you should try Endurolytes from Hammer Nutrition. You can buy them online at www.hammernutrition.com and they're awesome! They also have a sports drink that has nothing artificial in it called HEED.
