Exercise – the low-down on hydration

On December 27, 2019, in Commentary, by Erik

Hydration is very important for the body to stay functioning. The body is composed of 60% water, and most organs rely heavily on water to perform. When we exercise, we sweat out the water and electrolytes, and lose the vital moisture. It’s important to replenish the water reserves once exercise is finished, and electrolytes should be restored as well. Dehydration can lead to fatigue, headaches, nausea, mental cloudiness and other effects. Balancing out our bodies’ water levels is easy to do, has great benefits, but can be overlooked. Don’t skip on it!

Key Takeaways:

  • It is vital for your body to replenish fluids you lose during exercise with water.
  • Dehydration can affect your body and prevent it from operating at its best.
  • Darker urine and the inability to sweat during exercise are signs of dehydration.

“Dehydration can reduce your physical and mental capacity and make your heart rate and body temperature go up.”
