The Importance of Electrolyte Replacement

The Importance of Electrolyte Replacement

Rehydration after any activity that causes sweating is important. Drinking plenty of plain water after class may be sufficient for someone who maintains a healthy diet, particularly if they eat some fruits or vegetables soon after class.

He trained students in Yogic Physical Culture, a combination of Indian and Western…
