[RECIPE] Morning Hydrating Cocktail for Optimum Recovery

Ever since moving to Colorado 2 years ago now, I have struggled with staying hydrated.  The dry air here seems to steal water from my body and I had found it very difficult to rehydrate the next day after a full night of sleep.   But then I discovered this amazing hydrating cocktail and it has significantly helped me to rehydrate in the mornings. This is the best hydrating cocktail recipe that I have come across.

The electrolytes are delicious and are key for maintaining fluid balance.  I also add Rhodiola extract purchased from herb expert and health coach Marie Frohlich of Taproot Herbals to help return my body to homeostasis in the mornings.  Because Rhodiola can cause a disturbance in sleep if taken too late in the day, Marie recommends adding 2 droppers-full of this Rhodiola extract to water before breakfast.  Therefore it makes a lot of sense to add it to this cocktail.  Plus, I find that the combination of flavors in this morning hydration cocktail works together perfectly.

Rhodiola is an adaptogenic herb so it helps the body adapt to physical and mental stress.  It’s also great for supporting the immune system of athletes because intense training can temporarily impair immune system function.  

I also like to make sure to drink at least 32 ounces (1 quart) of water as soon as I wake up in the morning.  I won’t take a single sip of my morning coffee until I’ve finished my morning hydration cocktail.   And for some reason, I also really enjoy drinking out of these quart-size wide-mouth glass mason jars.
