So that lead to more research about how to PREVENT the cramps. I found a blog online written by a lady who had gone through similar cramp problems. Her research lead her to this drink that I am going to share with you. I've already shared it with those of you that have golfed with me in the last couple months. Another of our golfers has been using this drink too, and her story was similar to mine: relief from GETTING cramps!
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 2 large lemons)
1/3 cup pure raw honey
1/2 teaspoon unrefined sea salt
I do this so often that I bought a simple juicer to extract the lemon juice. I think I paid $13 for it on Amazon, so it's not fancy.
Use a one-cup glass measuring cup. Add the lemon juice and honey and salt to the cup and add a little water to it. Place in microwave for 40 seconds. You don't want to get it HOT....just warm enough to mix easily. Use a small whisk to mix thoroughly. Pour the mixture into a quart jar/container and finish filling with water. Refrigerate.
The lemon pulp will settle to the bottom so you will have to shake it before using each time. I fill my "big bubba" with ice and fill it with the drink. Drink a little of it at each hole.
I no longer have cramps. Only once since I started this regimen did I have a problem. For some reason, I failed to take my drink to the course one day. That evening, I had cramps. That is the ONLY time since I started drinking it. This may not work for everyone, but it works for me and at least one other person I know.
