Hydration is essential to daily nutrition. It’s one of those things that seems obvious but we don’t think about much. Truth is, most of us don’t drink enough water and go through life without getting the hydration we really need.
Here are some hydration facts you need to know:
- The adult body is made up of 60% water. Children’s bodies are closer to 70% water.
- There isn’t a specific recommended amount of water we should drink each day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
- There are, however, recommendations for daily fluid intake, which includes water, food, and other sources.
- We lose more than just water through exercise and daily activity. Electrolytes and other nutrients are depleted throughout the day.
Electrolytes are especially important because they help the body function at its best.† For athletes, electrolytes can help prevent cramping during sports competitions. For everyone else, they help the body stay balanced and hydrated during the day.
Given the facts, staying hydrated can be a lot of work, but it’s really as easy as one, two, drink. Here’s how to keep your thirst quenched so you can be healthy and function at your best in any situation.
Hydrate in the Morning
Our bodies lose a significant amount of water while we sleep through sweating and breathing. A glass or two of water first thing in the morning helps get our systems back on track.
Water in the morning can help support our body’s systems, which depend on good hydration to function properly.
Replenish Nutrients During the Day
We lose much more than just water during the day. Even when we’re not exercising, electrolytes and other nutrients need replenishing. Some of this happens with food, but beverages like new and improved AMPED™ Hydrate are a great way to replace water, electrolytes, and nutrients without the excessive amounts of added sugar and junk from other beverages.
Drink Before Exercise
When we exercise, our bodies lose water faster than it can be replaced. While it’s great to have a bottle of water or AMPED Hydrate by your side during a workout, it’s the time before the workout that matters. The more you stay hydrated during the day (or the night before, if you’re a morning exerciser), the better your workout will be. And the better the workout, the better the results!
Hydration Is Critical to Weight Loss
Good hydration is associated with better weight loss results. This works in a few different ways: Fluids help your body’s systems work well, and staying properly hydrated can help you feel more satisfied throughout the day.
Think about the last time your day was filled with sugary coffee drinks or soda. There’s a good chance you were craving snacks and unhealthy treats all day, too!
Hydration for Everyone
Nothing replaces water, and you should always drink plenty to stay hydrated. But to replenish lost electrolytes and other nutrients, new and improved AMPED Hydrate is the perfect solution to give your body what it needs for better daily hydration.†
