The Facts you can’t ignore about staying hydrated.

It's half way through the summer and the weather in August is predicted to be hot! Nothing sounds better than relaxing in the backyard soaking up the sun on a beautiful sunny day. Did you know that every minute you sit out in the sun, you are becoming dehydrated? Many people are under the impression that they will only become dehydrated if they participate in physical activity in the heat. The truth is that anyone outside in the heat is at risk of becoming dehydrated. Water Depot has some helpful reminders about the importance of keeping H20 flowing through our body this summer.

If you do not replenish your body with water properly in the summer you are at risk of heat exhaustion. Symptoms of heat exhaustion include: general weakness, fainting, nausea, muscle cramps, and an increase in body temperature. In the worst case scenario by not staying properly hydrated it can lead to heat stroke. Symptoms of heat stroke include: an inability to sweat, disorientation, loss of consciousness, and numbness to the left or right side of body.

You can prevent getting dehydrated by drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day to stay properly hydrated. During the summer months keeping our body hydrated is important because the hot or humid weather can make you sweat causing your body to lose fluids quick. If you are participating in physical activity (especially outside), it is important to rest and drink water before, during, and after the activity.

Water Depot encourages everyone to check out the variety of our water filtrations systems, which equips you to enjoy a purified refreshing glass of water from your home. Search our extensive website to find the best products for you to help you stay hydrated. Water Depot wants you to have a safe and hydrated summer in the hot weather.
