Did you know that staying hydrated is important to health? Staying hydrated throughout the day helps keep your body working the way it should!
Thirst is often the first alert that your body needs water, but don’t rely on it alone when you work out hard or in hot conditions—drink “proactively” whether you’re thirsty or not. Other symptoms of dehydration include dry mouth, swollen tongue, weakness, dizziness, confusion, sluggishness or fainting. Dehydration may also lead to muscle cramps in athletes—another important reason to stay hydrated during rigorous exercise.
