The importance of hydration for good health and properly functioning body systems cannot be overstated. As the warmer months approach (Maybe not so much here in N.Ireland 🙄) special attention needs to be given to proper hydration not just when you are training, but hydrating sufficiently in general.
Because the body cannot store water, we must constantly provide and supply it with water to maintain our body’s many important functioning systems. While water contains zero calories, it is considered a nutrient, comprising 55-70% of our body’s composition.
Contrary to popular belief, simply drinking water when you are thirsty is not good advice. When the thirst mechanism activates, it is usually a sign the body is already under hydrated (and possibly headed toward dehydration). At this point, the body has to catch up to function properly and rebalance the the internal mechanics that regulate our organs functions and keep us ticking along at peak performance.
If you feel like you need a drink to quench your thirst, chances are you are already dehydrated. #liquidgold #ukfitfam #stayhydrated #eleiko #healthylifestyle #anytimefitnessbelfast #water #anytimefitness #nutrients #irishfitfam #health #hydrate
