Insight of the day: Stay hydrated!

Hydration supports muscle, brain and organ health. Water especially is important.

To add natural flavor to water try slicing up some fresh fruit like green apples, lemons, or limes and allow them to sit in water for a few hours.

Remember energy drinks, coffee and some high caffeinated teas cause water loss from the body. If you drink these beverages remember to drink the same amount of water to make up for the losses.

When exercising remember to replace lost fluids by drinking water, or low calorie vitamin water or powerade. If you are participating in high intensity exercise where you are sweating a lot try drinking 8 oz of water every 10 minutes to prevent dehydration.

The recommendation to drink 64 oz of water daily is pretty accurate (depending on your medical condition) inbox me for individual questions.
