Making an electrolyte water at home with sugar and salt is not difficult to do, but you must be precise with your measurements to allow for the most beneficial and effective drink. In addition to water, salt and sugar, you'll need some baking soda and a salt substitute such as Morton Lite Salt, AlsoSalt or NoSalt. To avoid any health complications, carefully read the warning label on the salt substitute product you purchase.
