Forget Sports Drinks! Refuel With This Green Juice
Hot, sweaty and in need of electrolytes after a big workout? Skip the sports drink and and opt for a high-octane green juice!
This Ultimate Revitalizer Juice contains two workout recovery secret weapons: cucumbers and celery.
Cucumbers are a post-workout powerhouse because they provide a dose of quick energy (thank you, B vitamins) and rehydrate and replenish most of the vitamins we need in a single day. Cucumbers are also a great source of silica, which promotes joint health and can relieve arthritis pain.
Many people are surprised to learn that celery packs a powerful punch when it comes to nutrition! Full of sodium and potassium (exactly what our bodies need after sweating), celery juice acts as an anti-inflammatory and will help eliminate toxins from the body.
