Dehydration happens when you don’t have enough fluids in your system. Your hydration needs do not change much during the winter months. The body still loses water through sweating, breathing and urinating no matter which season it is. If you feel thirsty, have dry mouth, are light-headed, cannot focus well, feel tired or notice your skin is dry, know the signs and symptoms of dehydration and then act.
It’s important to have enough water and high water content foods like fruits and vegetables, not just liquid. To function correctly, your body needs both water and electrolytes (such as sodium, potassium and chloride). Water helps to maintain body temperature, digest food and lubricate tissues and joints. Electrolytes, help to retain fluid, and maintain good nerve and muscle function.
Don’t forget: Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. If symptoms persist, talk to your medical team.
