The summer season is up! Its the season to hit the beach,pools and let those dresses loose!
Sounds fancy !?It indeed does! But apart from having the fun we tend to forget an essential factor which if not pondered upon can lead to devastating consequences.
It is of utmost importance for one to stay hydrated this scorching summer.
It is often assumed that there’s no science behind the age-old advice to drink eight glasses of water a day, but how much should one be drinking?
A pretty basic question but yet no answer to it!?
There’s a shortage of reliable data on how much water and fluids people drink on an average,since relatively few studies have methodically accessed it.
Here are the simple ways
FYI about 20 percent of our daily water needs comes from the food we eat which includes vegetables, fruits, meats and other eatery which thereby means we don’t really meed 19-20 glasses of water day to stay hydrated.
Undoubtedly it is possible to survive without carbs , calories and essential vitamins but it is merely not possible to survive without water!One may survive without it for a few days but not more.
But it is actually surprising how little we know about the relationship between long term health and hydration.
As per the recommendations from Institute of Medicine regarding water intake , the adequate intake for adults aged 19 and older , a quantity of 2.7 liters of water is to be consumed daily by women and 3.7 liters for men.
As mentioned above most of the water intake in fulfilled in our body through beverages of any kind.It is thereby our call to chose the best beverages that contains more amount of fluid which would fetch us good.
Kiwis, strawberries ,watermelons ,apples and many more are packed with a lot of essential vitamins that fetch us a healthy diet this summer! Fruit juices and a teaspoon full of glucose can work better to refill the essentials salts and fluids in our body. Popsicle can also serve as a great beverage this summer.
