What does Proper Hydration Mean for You?

What does Proper Hydration Mean for You?

Water, water and more water!!

With all the hot and humid weather we have been having, we thought that it was a good time to remind everyone to drink more water!

Water makes up most of the human body. Muscles, joints, skin, and even bones depend on water to continue to function optimally. As you walk, move and exercise, you also sweat. If you do not drink enough water, dehydration can set in and this can impair muscle recovery and growth.

If there is an injury to the muscles, joints, discs, nerves or ligaments water intake is even more important in order to ensure that inflammation will be flushed out quicker and healing will not be impaired by dehydration.

Not sure how much water you should be drinking? The perfect balance of water intake and outtake is determined by age, gender and weight.

Did you miss us on TV?

Did you know that we got a visit from Tim Bolen of CHCH TV!
