Drinking adequate fluids while exercise is a crucial part of getting the most out of the activity that plays such a central role in our lives. Inadequate or excessive fluid intake during exercise might impair performance.
Overhydration and dehydration are both detrimental to health and athletic performance. Athletes who sweat a lot should drink water or sports drinks to replenish their fluid stores and prevent dehydration, but they shouldn’t drink too much and risk hyponatremia or low sodium levels. Ten percent to twenty percent of ultramarathon runners get hyponatremia. Brain injury, lung edema, and respiratory distress are all possible outcomes.
Signs Of Extreme Dehydration
- Ignorance of one’s surroundings to an abnormal degree (Apathy)
- Symptoms include diarrhea and/or vomiting
- Sensation of warmth
- Abdominal and bowel cramps
- A widespread sense of unease
- Rapid reduction in body mass
Do not overlook the advantages of drinking mineral water while exercising.
- Drinking water makes it possible for the body to absorb sufficient amounts of liquids.
- Blood viscosity reduces, allowing for easier transit of metabolic waste materials that upset the cellular equilibrium and muscular contraction.
- The acid-base balance is improved.
- Aids in maintaining energy levels during anaerobic activity.
- It neutralizes acids, prevents free radical damage, and slows the aging process.
- Medical treatment and physical activity both benefit from consuming hydrogen-rich water.
