How To Keep Hydrated

Everybody is just posting and shouting out in their social media accounts how hot it is nowadays. According to Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the heat index registered as high as 43 degrees last May 6 and 52.2 last May 8. 

In this case, we need to be careful since extreme heat can cause heatstroke, heat cramps as well as heat exhaustion. We are also advised to stay indoors, wear lightweight and light-colored clothing, and the most important, keep hydrated.

Tips on How To Keep Hydrated: 

1. Drinking-Water - This is the most basic and easiest way to hydration. It is recommended that we drink 6-8 glasses of water a day. It is ideal to opt for purified instead of distilled water since the purified water still contains minerals that are essential in rehydration while distilled water has both the contaminants and minerals removed. 

It also helps if we keep our water cold since this is more palatable which can encourage us to drink more. Thus, if you are planning to buy a refrigerator, this is the best time to do it and start having cold or chilled drinks. 

2. Coconut Water - Coconut water is known to be high in potassium. It also contains other important minerals such as magnesium, calcium, and manganese. These essential minerals are important in rehydration and replenishment of lost electrolytes and minerals.

3. Oral Rehydration Solution - According to Wikipedia, oral rehydration is a type of fluid replacement used to prevent and treat dehydration. It involves drinking water with modest amounts of sugar and salts specifically sodium and potassium. This usually comes in the form of sachet that you can buy over-the-counter in pharmacies and simply mix it with water. They also have flavored pre-mixed oral rehydration solutions that are usually given to children. 

4. Fruits and Vegetables - Aside from drinking liquids, we can also stay hydrated by eating fruits and vegetables. Many of our favorites are actually composed of 80-90% water. Some of which include: watermelons, carrots, lettuce, berries, oranges, cabbage, spinach, and grapes.

Aside from eating them fresh, you can also consider making a smoothie or "shake" as fondly called here in the Philippines. Watermelon and carrot flavored smoothies are our favorites and this will surely quench your thirst and help you lower down your body temperature. 

So, stock up on your fruits and vegetables as they have lots of health benefits for the whole family. It is also helpful if you store them properly like keeping it inside the refrigerator and freezer since this can help prolong its shelf life. Experts also advise that freezing fruits and vegetables can also help retain their nutrient content than just keeping them on the table.  

No wonder refrigerators and freezers are considered very important nowadays. We can consider it as an investment to keep our family healthy. If you are thinking of getting a new one, check out the best prices on refrigerators

Nonetheless, no matter what hydration option we choose, we just have to ensure that we make up for the lost fluids from sweating more during this hot or humid weather.
