Nutrition Bellevue | Hydration and Your Health

With the mercury rising every day, it’s more important than ever to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Remember, in hot temps, and especially so if you are exercising, water will often not be enough. It’s important to add electrolytes to your water, to avoid heat exhaustion or worse ~ heat stroke. The addition of electrolytes will keep your heart and brain functioning and stable, and help the body as a whole achieve homeostasis.

Our bodies consist mostly of water ~ having enough will keep our bodies happy, while failing to hydrate will make our bodies deeply unhappy. The rule of thumb is “Drink before you’re thirsty!” Thirst alone is a poor indication of hydration level; if you are thirst you’re already 1- 2% dehydrated!

Mild dehydration can impair vascular function nearly as much as smoking a cigarette!! Thus, mild dehydration in healthy young men plays a role in cardiovascular disease.

Drinking 1 – 3 additional cups of water a day can help people control their weight by reducing their level of sodium, sugar and fat.

Remember, if you are thirsty you are already 1 – 2% dehydrated! Drink, Drink, Drink!!
