Staying hydrated is important after a workout, being in the sun for an afternoon, or after a night of drinking. You help your body maintain normal function by drinking fluids, which in turn helps you feel better throughout your day.
Illness also puts a greater demand on your body for resources, which in turn can dehydrate you more quickly. Staying hydrated when ill can be difficult when you’re not feeling well, especially if you’re feeling nauseous or sleeping more than usual.
Plain water does not contain electrolytes, which are minerals found in your body that are essential to the proper function of muscles, the pH balance of your blood, and more. Electrolytes are naturally lost when you sweat. Your body does not produce electrolytes on its own, so these minerals must be replaced daily by ingesting food, beverages, or supplements.
Drip Hydration’s Dehydration treatment includes a blend of IV fluids and electrolytes which will quickly help relieve these symptoms and leave you feeling revitalized and refreshed. This treatment typically takes between 30 – 60 minutes and is delivered directly to you wherever you are so you can optimize your hydration with maximum convenience.
Dehydration can happen when you least expect it, especially if you are a busy or active individual. Dehydration occurs when your body doesn’t get enough fluids, and can cause a number of symptoms, including:
Rapid heart rate
Dehydration is a common problem for busy and active individuals who don’t drink enough fluids throughout the day. For the most part, it’s possible to stay hydrated throughout the day by drinking water. Fluids come from food as well as beverages.
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine recommends the following guidelines for daily fluid intake:
7 liters (15.5 cups) for men
7 liters (11.5 cups) for women
The ideal daily fluid intake varies from person to person depending on age, activity level, gender, and whether the individual has any medical conditions. So, if you exercise a lot, have a medical condition, or are pregnant or breastfeeding, you may need to consume more water than the above recommendations.
