I want to mix my own sport drink. Looking at the ingredients
of Gatorade, it's not too appetizing.

I'm thinking, half water, half orange juice. Then, salt, but how
many teaspoons, or grams, per liter? It should match the
body's salinity.

Also potassium, to replenish what's lost in perspiration.
That's why long distance runners eat bananas, I believe.
Can you get potassium in powder form, and what dosage
in the drink?


No way you'd save money over the powdered Gatorade. A can of powder that
makes 36 quarts of Gatorade sells for $11.19 at Costco, or about 31¢/quart.

Remember, that Gatorade was developed by researchers at one of the
finest universities in the world--you're not going to be able to
duplicate Dr. Cade's work in your kitchen. Companies and individuals
have been trying to duplicate Gatorade for decades, without success.

Gatorade is nothing more than Kool-ade mixed with brackish water.
