The best way to stay hydrated without even having to think about it is to make best friends with one of our infused water bottles. That way, any time you feel thirsty, you can just take a big sip of delicious, fruit-flavored water, and be instantly refreshed.
Did you know that feeling thirsty isn’t the only way that your body tells you it desperately needs water? In fact, many health experts agree that by the time you actually noticed that parched feeling on your tongue and lips, you’ve probably been dehydrated for quite some time.
So what are these early and mysterious of dehydration?
Without proper hydration, it’s hard for your body to produce adequate amounts of saliva. Without saliva, bacteria can have a big party in your mouth, and when that happens, halitosis isn’t far behind.
Are you constantly rubbing your hands, arms, legs, face, and neck with lotion? Does it feel like you can never apply enough chapstick to keep your lips moist? Dry skin is a big red flag that you’re not drinking enough water.
Athletes know this all too well: poorly hydrated muscles simply can’t perform at a high level. If you participate in strenuous exercise without drinking enough water, you’re probably going to suffer from painful cramps.
Are you constantly thinking about when you’ll be able to eat something sweet? Do you find it impossible to ignore the donuts at work on Friday morning? This can be a sign that your organs aren’t functioning properly due to lack of hydration. Instead of reaching for sugar, add some fruit to your infused water bottle!
Headaches are one telltale sign that your body isn’t getting enough water. “The brain sits inside a fluid sack that keeps it from bumping against the skull,” said Dr. John Higgins, associate professor of cardiovascular medicine at the University of Texas in Houston, and chief of cardiology at Lyndon B. Johnson General Hospital, told EverydayHealth.com. If that fluid sack is depleted or running low because of dehydration, the brain can push up against parts of the skull, causing headaches.”
