How to Stay Hydrated During the Summer

By July 23, 2021No Comments

Our bodies need water to survive. When we are staying hydrated, not only are we quenching our thirst, but we are maintaining a healthy body. Staying hydrated allows our body to flush toxins, regulate our body temperature, maintain balance, support our brain and hormone function, and help metabolic processes. Hydration also aids in the transportation of essential vitamins and minerals which supports the integrity of our muscles, joints, and bodies.

Most people spend more time outside, especially during the summer heat, which causes our bodies to lose fluid quickly. And the more active we are outside, the more fluid intake we’ll need. That’s why it’s so important to stay hydrated during the hot summer.

Adult bodies can be up to 60 percent water which is why proper hydration is key to helping us stay healthy.

We’ve compiled a list of tips to help you drink plenty of water during the summer.

How to stay hydrated

1. Add flavor. If you’re someone that needs flavor in your water, cut up fruits or veggies to infuse your water with flavor. The Propur Fruit Infused Water Filter Pitcher makes it easy to have quick access to flavored water in your fridge.

How much water should I drink a day?

It is recommended that the average person drink at least 2 liters or 64 ounces of fluids a day.

Why water quality matters

Believe it or not, the quality of the water that you drink matters. If are drinking water that is full of contaminants, you are at a higher risk of getting sick. That’s why it’s so important to have access to clean, filtered water and that you are drinking it regularly.

Changing your water filters regularly is the easiest and best way to ensure that you stay hydrated and healthy.

Symptoms of dehydration

Dehydration is dangerous. While we always want to make sure that we’re drinking enough water, but it’s very easy to become dehydrated without even realizing it.
A few common signs of dehydration are a sticky or dry mouth, headache, dizziness or lightheadedness, and constipation. More severe symptoms of dehydration include extreme thirst, low blood pressure, rapid heartbeat, little to no urination, and delirium. If you believe that you may be dehydrated, seek medical attention immediately.

Can you drink too much water?

Yes, drinking too much water can lead to water intoxication. Water intoxication, also referred to as water poisoning, causes an interruption in brain function. Drinking too much water increases the amount of water in your blood and causes sodium levels to drop. Sodium in our blood helps us balance the fluids inside and outside of cells.

When sodium levels are too low, this can cause the cells to swell. Symptoms of water intoxication include headaches, nausea, and vomiting. More severe symptoms include confusion, muscle weakness, double vision, and difficulty breathing. Those who suspect they may have water poisoning should seek medical care immediately.
