    Question Glucose drinks not good for rehydration after illness

    Shop Now
    I recall hearing of a study that showed why drinking glucose drinks like lucozade was an ineffective way to restore hydration and electrolyte balance after being ill.

    Unfortunately I can't remember where I heard about it, and I can't find it now. Anyone help me out?

    Why not use coconut water. It's an awesome re-hydrator, packed with electrolytes and potassium.

If my regimen leads to my death, be it in six days or six months...I will die fullfiled. The outcome is irrelavent so long as i steer towards my fate. If death is to be my prize, i welcome it with open arms."

    Real bone broth is a great for electrolyte balance and rehydration, as well as nourishment after illness.
