5 Ways to Rehydrate Your Body

Posted by on February 22, 2021 in Stuff with 0 Comments

Hydration is a very important issue we face nowadays. We often neglect it, and we ignore its importance. In addition, a lot of our habits such as drinking a lot of coffee or smoking reduce the hydration of our body. Therefore, we need to find ways to rehydrate ourselves efficiently.

How to rehydrate through a diet

Fruits ; Vegetables

Even though water is the perfect solution for rehydrating, fruits and vegetables are a perfect solution too. Considering that they contain at least 80% of water, they can provide us with a lot of nutrients, vitamins, and hydration. The most hydrating are melons, spinach, grapes, orange, cabbage, and lettuce.

In case you are looking for quick ways to hydrate yourself, fruits and vegetables are also a good solution for you. You don't always have to prepare a meal in order to get hydrated from them. You can also put them or find them in snacks you can easily carry around with you.

In addition, a smoothie or an energy bowl are very good solutions because they have a combination of fruits with milk or yogurt ( also very hydrating).

Tea ; Coffee

Drinking coffee and tea at normal amounts can be very hydrating. It is supported that a 250-300 mg dosage of coffee and tea is a sufficient amount for hydration.

Drinking coffee or tea is a very good option when you want to combine energy boost and hydration. Make sure you don't exceed the 25-300 mg limit though because then coffee, in particular, can dehydrate you.

Good old water

The most successful way to hydrate yourself is with water of course.

Even though it has no particular taste, it is the cheapest and the most efficient way to hydrate yourself daily. Drinking water is sufficient for hydration. In addition, it does not contain any chemicals or added sugar, so it is a pure and clean source of hydration.

Furthermore, it is easy to drink when eating and throughout the whole day.

Drinking enough water is very important, not only for hydration but also for cleansing your body. Don't neglect it! It is estimated that an adult should drink 2 liters of water per day (just water).

Milk

In case you are not lactose intolerant, milk is an excellent choice for hydration. As it contains a lot of water and electrolytes, it can actively contribute to balanced hydration. In addition, it has many nutrients and high-quality protein. More specifically, low-fat milk can do the trick as well. Make sure to try it!

Alternative solutions

If you are looking for more alternative solutions, you can also try oral hydration solutions. Even though they are created in order to tackle hydration loss caused by diarrhea and/or vomiting.

These formulas are designed explicitly for hydration. They are water-based but they often contain extra electrolytes and sugar. You can also add in their flavors.

Usually, athletes and people who suffer from diarrhea/ vomiting choose this option. Nevertheless, it is not the best way to hydrate yourself in a healthy way because it contains chemicals and it can be very costly to buy these formulas. Some people actually make it themselves by combining water, sugar, and salt in a beverage.

On an ending note

Taking everything into consideration, hydration is very important for the healthy operation of our organisms, and we can receive through many foods and water-based beverages/formulas. Make sure that you hydrate yourself with balance, meaning that you eat hydrating foods such as vegetables and fruit while you drink enough water. A well-hydrated body is a healthy body after all!
