Stay Hydrated!

Let’s talk about hydration, since this summer is particularly hot. Each of us has an individual need of fresh water. Here are some simple tools to keep your body happily hydrated and out of trouble this summer.

1. Do not count sodas, coffee or strong black tea as hydrating. Should you choose those, which may be dehydrating, add extra water.

2. Listen to your thirst cues. Your lips will be dry and you will feel thirsty. However, if you are over 60 years old, your thirst mechanism is going to start to decrease and you can no longer rely on feeling thirsty. Make sure you have water around you during the day. You may need to put a pitcher filled with water on the kitchen table and rememeber to empty it by the end of the day. Your needs will vary depending e.g. on activity level or outside temperature and humidity.

3. Always look at your urine color. If it is only pale yellow, you are hydrated. The darker yellow it is, the more dehydrated you are. This can only be tricky after taking B complex as your urine will be colored yellow from the supplement.

4. Rehydration. To rehydrate drink extra fluids that can include coconut water or water with added Celtic sea salt. Both contain electrolytes. Celtic sea salt is rich in electrolytes as well as many minerals.

5. Excess of water can dillute electrolytes, cause swelling of the brain and even endanger your heart. Remember to watch the color of your urine and increase water intake with exercise or heat.

I hope you found these hints helpful. Have a safe summer!
