Did you know that 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated? Our bodies need to be hydrated to run optimally. Unfortunately, our bodies don’t do a great job of informing us when we are dehydrated. To help keep your body running strong, we’ll share some hydration tips and Purium superfoods that go above and beyond in helping you stay hydrated throughout the day.
Signs of Dehydration
There are many symptoms of dehydration. The easiest one you can diagnose yourself is to examine your urine. The darker it is in color, the more likely you need water.
Another tip is to take note of how often you’re urinating. If you’re properly hydrated, you should feel the desire to urinate every 2 hours or so. If you don’t, chances are you need to drink more water.
Other signs of dehydration include:
- Dry or sticky mouth
- Dry skin
- Muscle cramps
- Mental fogginess
Daily Water Intake
Drinking water throughout the day will obviously keep you hydrated, but how much should you drink? While there is no scientific number that tells us exactly how much we should drink, we tell people to drink half their body weight in fluid ounces. If you stick to that number every day, there is very little chance you will be a victim of dehydration.
This means if you weigh 180 pounds, you should drink around 90 ounces of water
Purium Superfoods for Hydration Support
Our first product we recommend is Super Lytes. This superfood was formulated specifically for athletes to take during vigorous exercise. During such activities, we lose precious minerals that can have a dramatic effect on performance. A capsule or two of Super Lytes will keep your engine churning by balancing your electrolyte and sodium levels.
Coco Hydrate contains all the electrolytes derived from raw, organic coconut water. This refreshing coconut-based blend is loaded with electrolytes and antioxidants that will boost your hydration levels and support joints during recovery and high-intensity activity. Plus, the refreshing pineapple flavor is the perfect way to send you on a trip to a tropical paradise.
Ionic Elements is a specially-formulated combination of fulvic acid and ocean trace minerals that can help replenish minerals, boost immune function, amongst other benefits for athletes and non-athletes alike. A handful of drops a day to keep dehydration away!
