With our bodies made up of more than 60% of water, it is critical for our body’s overall function to replace what we have lost, but are you sipping enough water?
Every day through breathing, perspiration as well as flushing out bodily toxins, our bodies lose water. Hydration levels vary from person to person and according to gender, age, activity levels and seasonal temperature, however the signs of dehydration are all the same.
Infrequent urination, dry skin and mouth as well as a rapid heart rate, feeling faint as well as lacking in energy can also be linked to symptoms of dehydration.
As a general guideline, adults should aim for eight cups of fluid (preferably water) daily and 10 respectively. Four to five cups are recommended for children up to eight years of age and adolescents are advised to intake between six to eight cups on a daily basis.
Now, that’s all well and good however, the way you drink can also have the reverse effect. Drinking large amounts of water in one go can dilute the blood causing our kidneys to excrete the water resulting in insufficient hydration.
The key to optimal hydration to sip water regularly throughout the day and one of the best ways to do so is to always have a quality water bottle by your side everywhere you go to serve as both a reminder and a drink bottle.
It’s a simple yet very healthy habit. Not only does water hydrate you but it also helps remove toxins from the body, aids in digestion and helps with overall energy levels!
This is why it is important to grab a Cheeki water bottle! Australia’s first stainless steel drink bottle brand, Cheeki was established with the goal of creating high quality reusable stainless steel alternatives to single-use plastic food and beverage containers.
