But what is dehydration?

Mild to moderate dehydration is commonly defined as 2-6% of body weight loss through fluid.  


Our bodies require a balance of water and electrolytes to function correctly and remain healthy. Every day we lose fluid and electrolytes via urine, sweat, saliva, and other bodily functions.

Common causes include:

Common causes include:

Exercise

Heavy sweating reduces fluid and electrolytes, which can cause mild to moderate dehydration. Did you know dehydration can impact your sports performance?

Travel

Travelers are at risk of dehydration from traveler's diarrhea and the potentially dehydrating effects of air travel.


Hangover

Alcohol is a diuretic, stimulating your body to produce more urine. You’ll feel the effects when fluids and electrolytes leave your body without being replaced.

Heat

Hot weather can cause your body's core temperature to rise. This usually causes a higher sweat rate, resulting in lost fluid and electrolytes.

Fever

An elevated body temperature above 98° F is often accompanied by increased sweating which leads to fluid and electrolyte loss.

Vomiting & Diarrhea

A stomach flu or food poisoning can cause a large loss of fluid and electrolytes. The biggest risk associated with this is dehydration.

Shouldn't I just drink more water?

Shouldn't I just drink more water?

Water alone doesn’t replenish lost electrolytes which help the body retain fluid and are essential for nerve and muscle function. We've all heard that we should drink 8 glasses of water a day, it's not because we lose 8 glasses of fluids, it's because not all of it is making it to the bloodstream!

What are electrolytes?

Electrolytes are critical for daily bodily functions and constantly need replenishment, even more so when sick, working out, travelling or hangover. With the right ratio of glucose and electrolytes the body is able to absorb fluids much faster and far more effectively. 

Hydralyte is like an IV Drip, without the needle.
