Residents urge to remain hydrated
Health experts have urged residents to remain hydrated to avoid health issues.
Experts suggest that increasing fluid intake is one of the simplest ways to stay hydrated in the UAE in the summer. That also means drinking water even when you don’t feel thirsty.
The best approach to beat the summer heat in UAE is to get into the habit of drinking a large glass of water every morning when you wake up.
This helps in rehydrating the body, making you more alert and helping your brain function better.
Staying hydrated during exercise is important. You can become dehydrated if you take in too little. But you can actually cause problems, such as exercise-induced low sodium or hyponatremia, if you take in too much fluid.
Workout tips summer
The purpose of rehydrating — whether with water or electrolyte-containing beverages — is to pull fluid back into our system so our organs can function properly.
How much to drink and when is dependent on each individual. The general rule of thumb at this point among physicians is to drink to thirst. Although there are guidelines for hydration before, during, and after exercise, look and listen to your body as the best indicator when you need hydration.
Certainly during summer months, when the weather is hotter and you may be exercising outdoors, you may want to take in more fluid than usual.
For most people, plain water is best. Depending upon how extensively you exercise, you can consume about half your fluid intake in water and half in a beverage that contains electrolytes and some carbohydrates.
The reason you want a beverage that includes both is that when you sweat, your body is losing fluid, along with those electrolytes, such as sodium and chloride. Carbohydrates provide fuel for your working muscles. Be mindful of the amount of sugar, though.
