Stay Properly Hydrated this Summer

It's no secret that drinking plenty of water is good for your health as well as your appearance. Not only will you feel more energetic, you will look more awake as well. Hydration is especially important during these hot summer months. Great Harvest in Spokane can help you understand the benefits of hydration and help you stay hydrated all summer.

How Does Water Help Your Body?

Water is essential for your body to function properly. It helps maintain your body's temperature and is critical for growth and development. Staying properly hydrated can help you avoid fatigue, increase your concentration and build muscle. Your blood flow and digestive functions will also benefit from proper hydration.

How Does Your Body Lose Water?

While most people are aware that sweating from heavy workouts causes water loss for the body, you actually lose water all day from various activities. Going to the bathroom and simply breathing all cause water to leave your body. Heavy workouts and higher temperatures will cause your body to lose water quicker. Even if you're not participating in physical activities, it is important that you continue to drink water. This is especially true over the hot summer months. If you're sick, maintaining your body hydrated is even more important for your recovery.

How Can You Stay Hydrated?

While drinking plain water is the most recommended method of hydration, there are other foods and drinks that can also help. Sports drinks are a great source of hydration if you're participating in heavy physical activities, especially in hot temperatures. Keep in mind that they do contain more calories and sugar than plain water. Some fruits and vegetables can also provide your body with water. While they also contain more calories, they are still a healthy option that also helps prevent dehydration. You can add fruit to your water to make delicious infused water and stay hydrated at the same time.
