I was wondering if anyone knew a good source of electrolytes drink wise without having to rely on sport drinks? After an intense heated yoga class it was suggested I may have needed more electrolytes.
 
Here is a website listing the 17 foods high in electrolytes:

Electrolytes

Electrolytes are minerals in your blood and other body fluids that carry an electric charge.

Electrolytes affect how your body functions in many ways, including:

The amount of water in your body
The acidity of your blood (pH)
Your muscle function
Other important processes
You lose electrolytes when you sweat. You must replace them by drinking fluids that contain electrolytes. Water does not contain electrolytes.

Common electrolytes include:

Calcium
Chloride
Magnesium
Phosphorus
Potassium
Sodium
Electrolytes can be acids, bases, or salts. They can be measured by different blood tests. Each electrolyte can be measured separately, such as:

Ionized calcium
Serum calcium
Serum chloride
Serum magnesium
Serum phosphorus
Serum potassium
Serum sodium
Note: Serum is the part of blood that doesn't contain cells.

Sodium, potassium, and chloride levels can also be measured as part of a basic metabolic panel. A more complete test, called comprehensive metabolic panel, can test for these several more electrolytes.

The electrolytes - urine test measures electrolytes in urine. It tests the levels of calcium, chloride, potassium, sodium, and other electrolytes.
