5 Tips to Stay Hydrated in Summer



1. Drink Water


Easier said than done, right? I have a hard time consuming enough water a day. If I had the choice between, coffee, tea, pop, juice, and water, water isn’t going to be the first choice. Luckily, there are so many drinks available and so many flavors to choose from. If drinking plain water is boring, try choosing flavored infused water or coconut water.


Tip: Choose a brand that contains no added preservatives and is 100% coconut water. Harmless Harvest, CocoXim, C2O, Creative Roots, and Coco Mojo are some healthy brands to choose from.


2. Eat High-Water Content Foods


Apples

Cantaloupe

Strawberries

Watermelon

Celery

Cucumber

Lettuce

Fruits and vegetables are always a good choice. They are high-water content foods so not only are they a good source of electrolytes but staying hydrated too. This works in favor of non-water lovers.


3. Avoid Alcohol, Sugar, & Caffeine


Alcohol and caffeine are diuretics that can lead to dehydration in the body. Sugar is another thing that can lead to dehydration if blood sugar levels become too high.


Try substituting for fat-free or skim milk, smoothies, or sports drinks.


4. Supplements


Probiotic

Electrolyte Powder

Electrolyte Tablet

Electrolyte Capsules


Probiotics help with maintaining healthy skin and improve digestion and absorption of food and nutrients.
