In summer heat keeps raising things we need to follow to beat the heat:
Drink Sufficient Water – an adult requires a liquid feed of at least 1.5 to 2 litres per day. The warmer it is, the greater the need: hence adjust the drinking quantity according to the outside temperature! The same applies in the case of severe physical activities or sporting events: here, too, the fluid demand is higher than normal due to increased sweating.
Drink Often – the optimal drink should distribute over small portions. The body can not optimally utilise a single large amount of fluid. Drink often and little as once and much! So that you do not forget to drink, so you “educate” yourself almost to the regular drinking and does not come into the situation to remember the drinking for a long time.
Drinking Properly – sugar and caffeine-containing beverages or alcohol are taboo and should be avoided especially on hot days. The reason is that they contribute a very little fluid to the supply of the organs due to their sugar content – and, on the contrary, provide even more thirst. Alcohol also removes fluid from the body and interferes with the water balance. That’s why water is especially suitable for supplying the necessary liquid to the circulation.
Too much water is just as harmful as too little water: significant amounts of fluid are a source of heart and kidneys and can leak valuable mineral and trace elements correctly.
If you have much difficulty by drinking, you can also rely on food with a high water and mineral content: tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelons and strawberries are excellent for balancing the fluid balance and for filling the reserves lost by sweating.
The tastes and variety of the fruits become the perfect aspect and what better than to take valuable fruit drinks? They help us start our day with lots of energy or enjoy a mid-afternoon under the shade with something refreshing in our hands.
You can do it yourself! You just need a little creativity, desire and visit your favourite supermarket. If you ask yourself why you are healthy, here is the answer: they are energetic, they help the memory, you are satisfied or to detoxify you. Enjoy!
