Homemade Sports Training Drink
By: Dr. Skip Hellen ND, CNC (Health Doctor)
Sports drinks are sold as liquid and electrolyte replacing beverages. Many
fall into the misleading even false claims and purchase commercially produced
sports drinks. Unfortunately, most of these drinks are ladened with excessive
amounts of sugar and other chemicals that have no place in the human body. the
good news is anyone can create their own sports drink in a few short minutes
with healthy fresh ingredients. Here's how, fresh squeezed some orange juice,
add mineral water and honey, blended to individual preference. The
ingredients are rich in electrolyte minerals (electrochemical transmission) including
potassium (muscle contraction) and natural carbohydrates (sugar for sustained
energy). When the training intensity gets grueling, a drink such as this helps
keep the energy intensity up. Orange juice concentrate is optional but not nearly as
healthy as fresh squeezed. Any water is optional but not nearly as healthy as mineral
water. Any honey is optional but not nearly as healthy as organic, raw honey.
Formula (Orange juice
– Water – Honey)
Here is some data on 2 pints of diluted orange juice concentrate and honey.
· The drink contains enormous
amounts of concentrated energy - nearly 600 calories = 142 grams of fast-acting carbohydrates
· Contains nearly 2,000 mg of potassium
· Potassium is crucial for muscle contractions and nerve
transmission and is lost during hard, sweaty training sessions
· Replacing potassium losses through sweat from intense training
is essential for maximum performance
This homemade formula of fresh orange juice, water and honey contains all
natural ingredients and is much healthier especially at a time of intense
biological need. It’s up to each individual bodybuilder as to what he or she prefers. Some may prefer just plain old
water which is fine however it is best to keep the water pure absent chemicals such as the chlorine in tape water.
It has always concerned me when I see highly trained athletes waltz up to the
drinking fountain in the gym and guzzle down copious amounts of municipal tape
water during intense training sessions. This practice is potentially extremely
damaging to the body and should never be done. I used to be a professional
tennis player and drank enormous amounts of municipal tape water especially on
hot days. What was worse, we were in the habit of using empty tennis ball cans
as drinking cups. Now I'm sure there were many dangerous chemicals in those
tennis ball cans, but we didn't know any better at the time.
HELP! UHRI has produced optimal health step by step programs designed to guide you through all the
challenges of personal excellence and optimal health acquisition. Take the
challenge and become the best that you can be, then teach others to do the same.
It is essential to properly hydrate the body and replace lost electrolyte minerals while engaging in intense physical training/exercise. Not
properly hydrating may will result in less than maximum performance as well as physical damage even
serious injury. It is highly recommended that maximum performance and health
benefits will only be achieved when hydration, electrolyte minerals
and energy are maintained at peak levels during intense physical training. Intense physical training is great to keep the body at maximum performance
and optimal health. Learning how to manage all the variable factors surrounding
intense physical training can be complicated and confusing. UHRI can
help put all these factors into context so that physical exercise of any kind can be fun while promoting optimal health.
"Illness and disease are
optional, choose not to participate" ~ Dr. Skip Hellen
It’s important to understand that optimal health can only
be achieved and maintained when nutritional, physical, and mental requirements
are met resulting in systemic biological balance (homeostasis).
The following are the cornerstones of success with anything
in life, make these qualities an important part of your life strategy and you
will achieve excellence in anything you do.

commitment advances positive
tenacity promotes success

OPTIMAL HEALTH ACTION STEPS
1. (Develop) a strong sense of self respect and discipline
2. (Pledge) Take the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledge
3. (Test) Complete the health assessment test (establish a personal health baseline)
4. (Decide) Set a goal to achieve personal health excellence (optimal health)
5. (Education) Learn health principles how to achieve optimum health
6. (Heath Compass) Buy a pH litmus test kit, start testing frequently – keep a test result log
7. (Manage/Adjust) Change behavior habits for best results
8. (Commitment) Stay the course until achieving personal health excellence
9. (Mentor) Help another achieve personal health excellence
Since behavior habits and nutrition are critical components of human health and longevity,
denial, shortcuts and misguided beliefs can be very costly not only in terms of lost monetary
wealth but in compromised health leading to rapid aging, illness, disease and death.
DON’T TAKE YOUR HEALTH FOR GRANTED. IF YOU DON’T TAKE PROPER CARE OF YOUR
HEALTH, WHO WILL?
The important thing to remember is consumptive habits (foods) will form the foundation of
either optimal health or illness and disease. The old saying "you are what you eat" is absolutely
true when it comes to health.
Developing strong personal character (respect, belief, knowledge, discipline, commitment)
are the cornerstones of all personal excellence accomplishments.
Taking the "Declaration of Health Independence" pledges and adopting the behavior principles
solidifies a vital first step on the road to optimal health success. These pledge
commitments not only help develop the skills required to accomplish the goal but better define
the path to personal health excellence. The second step is purchasing a litmus test kit to
accurately monitor health progress. (see below for event test kit sale)

unhealthy behavior habits to
