Your body is made of mostly water, and it needs this nutrient for toxin removal, nutrient transport, digestion, and protecting your joints.
Electrolytes are essential minerals found in our blood, sweat, and urine that are electrically charged either negative or positive. Your body needs these electrolytes for optimal functioning, including nervous system and muscle operations, hydration status, and acid-base balance. Such electrolytes are sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, phosphate, bicarbonate.
To help encourage proper hydration and electrolyte fulfillment in your life, the Villas is sharing the following tips:
Decrease your intake of dehydrating fluids such as coffee and soda, and replace with clear water.
Aim for filtered and remineralized water. Most filtered water removes both impurities and minerals, leaving the water electrolyte-depleted.
How much water you need in a day depends on your climate, your age, your activity level, and your size: Your needs may vary from 8 to 13 cups a day.
Add in naturally water-rich fruits and vegetables: Cucumber, greens, berries, watermelon, peaches, oranges, squash, tomatoes, celery, and soups, broths and teas.
Include naturally electrolyte-rich fruits and vegetables: Bananas, spinach, kale, lime, watermelon, pomegranate, orange, cucumber, cherries, beets, strawberries, mangos and lemons.
Create your own hydrating drink: Infuse your water with a fruit or veggie to give it an electrolyte boost.
Skip the sports electrolyte drinks as they may contain harmful ingredients. Choose 100 percent pure coconut water, which naturally contains the ideal ratio of potassium and sodium. Studies have shown coconut water performs as well as sports drinks for rehydration.
In addition to preventing dehydration and other negative side effects, you may feel improvements in your memory, balance, concentration, mood, and motivation when your cells are well-hydrated.
