A Healthy Body Is A Hydrated Body: Tips To Keep You Hydrated From POWERaDE TXL Sports Beverages - Articles Surfing

(NC)'With today's "on-the-go" lifestyle, people have redefined what "active" means. The distinction between your workout routine and your everyday life activities may have blurred. Many people take care of their body when they exercise but forget to take care of their body during a hectic workday. An example of this is keeping hydrated. You probably know that you should drink plenty of fluids during exercise, but this also holds true for people who lead an active lifestyle.

Sports drinks such as POWERaDE TXL sports beverages provide hydration combined with a light, refreshing taste.

Follow these tips to ensure you are getting enough fluids while exercising:

  1. Get into a routine. Drink regularly ' even if you don't feel thirsty. If you are thirsty, that means you are already dehydrated.

  2. Maintain hydration. It is important to drink before, during and after exercise.

  3. Be prepared. Always carry a squeeze bottle filled with a sports drink or water when exercising.

  4. Drink a little bit, often. Drinking small amounts of liquid frequently is more effective than drinking a large amount once or twice a day.

  5. Monitor yourself. Watch for the symptoms of dehydration.

If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you may be dehydrated:

Mild dehydration

  • Dry lips and mouth
  • Flushed skin
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Headache
  • Dark urine

Moderate dehydration

  • Pinched skin takes longer to bounce back into shape
  • Sunken eyes
  • Cramps
  • Stiff joints
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue

Severe dehydration

  • Blue lips
  • Blotchy skin
  • Confusion
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Increase in breathing rate
  • Quick and weak pulse
  • Faintness
  • Inability to urinate

The body is able to reserve nutrients but it cannot reserve water. Once the body runs out of its water supply, it cannot rehydrate. Make sure that you drink enough fluids to keep you hydrated and healthy all summer long.
