"SCD" RECIPES > ELECTROLYTE DRINK (Replacement for Powerade & Gatorade)

This is a drink for dehydration or when electrolytes are imbalanced.  It can be kept in the refrigerator for 24 hours and then a new batch should be made.


This drink is SCD legal and should be used instead of Powerade, Gatorade, or other sugary commercial drinks.

2 T. honey

¼ t. salt

¼ t. baking soda

Optional:  Lime, lemon, or orange juice to taste


* Do not use 'distilled' water, unless for short term detoxification process, because it can lead to de-mineralization with long term use due to its acidic properties.


* See your doctor if this drink is needed longer than a 24 hour period.

8 oz. of SCD legal fruit juice

1/2 t. honey
