      How to stay well hydrated this summer

      Summer is the season you have been waiting for all along, but it can also be dehydrating if you don’t take care. Here are some tips that will keep you hydrated and get you through summer. Loss of appetite, dry mouth, mild constipation, and temporary lightheadedness are all signs of dehydration.

      Drink enough water

      The level of water that you should drink varies based on your weight, age, and activity level. However, an easy thumb rule to go by is 8 glasses of 8 ounces of water each day. 

      Go for some flavor

      Add some flavor to your water, it not only peps it up, it boosts the nutrition. Infuse your water with fresh fruit such as berries, slices of orange or lime.

      Choose water over juices and other beverages

      While it’s true that juices and other beverages such as teas can be sources of hydration, the best source is water. Drinking water also helps you avoid unnecessary sugar, caffeine and additives.

      Try coconut water

      Coconut water is obtained from young, green coconuts. This is highly nutritious and filled with potassium, magnesium, sodium, and calcium. It’s the ideal natural drink for summer as it helps replenish lost fluids and electrolytes.

      Don’t forget those probiotics

      Probiotics are not just good for gut health, they help you stay hydrated as well and also improve the absorption of nutrients from your food.

      Include hydrating fruits and veggies

      The best way to hydrate is to get 70-80% of daily hydration from water and 20-30% from food! All whole fruits and vegetables have some water, but some are better choices. For instance, cucumbers have 97% water, tomatoes and radishes have 95% water, celery is 96% water, cauliflower and watermelon have 92% water and grapefruit has 90% water. Add these to your diet.
