Proper hydration is vital

When it's hot outside or you exercise a lot,it is not enough just to drink water in order to be hydration.
It is required that you consume salt to the water, so that the water can be absorbed by the body. When you sweat a lot or when it is very hot, the balance in your body is disturbed  and you lose a lot of salts.
This also applies in cases of fever, stomach flu, diarrhea or excessive consumption of alcohol.

Therefore I give you a recipe of how to make your own rehydration solution:
1 L of boiled cooled water
6 teaspoons of granulated sugar
0.5 teaspoons of salt
If you want you can even have a few drops of lemon. Keep cold or at room temperature up to one day.

Why is it so important with water then?
Well, its task is to transport nutrients into cells and waste products out of cells. It also helps when the cells build proteins.
Other benefits of drinking water is that your joints are lubricated, the food need to be digested and it regulates your body temperature.
What happens if you do not drink enough water?
The body takes the fluid it needs from the blood that the blood volume decreases and the heart rate rises.
It's best for your body is that you drink 2-3 liters per day

Have a great water day!!!
