Benefits of Staying Hydrated

  •  2 Minute Read

Dehydration is caused when the body loses more fluid than it takes in. While it’s natural to lose fluid through normal bodily functions such as sweating, going to the bathroom or breathing, it’s important to consume fluids to maintain the proper balance. Staying hydrated is beneficial in many other ways as well, such as:

  • Improving mood
  • Boosting brain function
  • Preventing fatigue
  • Helping to moisturize skin
  • Producing necessary bodily fluids like tears and saliva
  • Helping to remove waste through sweat, urine and stool

Your Body Needs Water and Electrolytes

When you lose fluids, you also lose electrolytes. Electrolytes are minerals essential to your health. They balance fluids in your body and carry electrical signals to power your nerves and muscles. Unfortunately, water is low in electrolytes, so for mild to moderate dehydration just drinking water is often not enough. For proper rehydration, we need both fluids and electrolytes, like those found in Pedialyte®
