Drink Up & Stay Hydrated with This Information About National Hydration Day

Check out these suggestions for National Hydration Day.

Our bodies are primarily made of water. To stay healthy, we need to drink lots of water. Being well-hydrated helps us to regulate body temperature, balance electrolytes, transport vital nutrients to cells, removing waste, lubricating joints, and so much more. Ensure that you stay hydrated to stay healthy on National Hydration Day on June 23, 2017. Join us in learning more about the occasion and what we should know about staying hydrated.

About Dehydration

Dehydration is a serious condition that can have adverse health effects. Without enough water, the body’s ability to function properly is diminished. Symptoms of dehydration include extreme thirst, dark urine, confusion, dizziness, and fatigue.

Staying Hydrated

It’s important that we drink fluids throughout the day. Water is the best way to get the fluid that we need to stay well hydrated. Additionally, various fruits and vegetables can help to give our bodies a little extra water. Let’s eat and drink enough water, so our bodies function to the best of our abilities.

Interesting, according to the Institute of Medicine’s recommendations, we should eat 20 percent of our daily water intake.

What To Eat to Stay Hydrated

  • Watermelon – our favorite summer fruit. Watermelon is 92% water!  Also a good source of potassium, Vitamin C, and Vitamin A.
  • Celery – it is 95% water! Celery also provides plenty of fiber, and rich in minerals.
  • Cucumbers – 96% water and high in Vitamin K.
  • Strawberries – 92% water, the most of any berry, high in fiber and Vitamin C.

Just a few suggestions, and some great tasting suggestions to eat 20% of our water intake.

Finally, according to the folks at Harvard Medical School, the average person should consume 30 to 50 ounces of water a day.  Not all at once, but gradually throughout the day.  As we get older, our sense of thirst decreases, so it’s imperative for older folks to make certain that they’re consuming the appropriate amounts, even if they don’t feel thirsty.
