Life cannot exist without water. We must constantly be adding fresh water to our body in order to keep it properly hydrated. Water can be a miracle cure for many common ailments such as headaches, joint pains and much more. We can go for weeks without food, but only 3 days without water!
The first sign of dehydration is not the sensation of thirst but fatigue.
Water’s best for most workouts, but if you’re really sweating—working out for longer than 30 minutes, usually—a sports drink may be your best bet.
These drinks offer potassium, sodium, and other electrolytes to replenish the minerals lost through sweat. And the carbohydrate concentration in sports drinks allows them to be absorbed by the body up to 30 percent faster than water, meaning your energy is restored quicker than with plain H2O.
Whatever you drink, take it cold and in frequent, small amounts. This proven strategy guarantees your fluids will be absorbed in less time, leaving you energized and well hydrated.
