Hydration Hacks With EcoDrink Naturals

One look at the national weather map confirms just about everyone is experiencing a hotter-than-normal summer! And with temperatures at and beyond the century mark, we can’t overemphasize the need to keep your body hydrated!

Did you know that 60% of your body weight is water? So when summer sweating depletes your internal water supply, replacing it ASAP is a mission-critical event!

Today we’ll answer those pressing hydration questions you’ve been pondering and discuss how Lily’s EcoDrink Naturals can help you rehydrate and recover!

Why Does Hydration Matter?

When it’s hot outside, your body naturally sweats in an attempt to cool you down. This causes you to lose the nutrients and electrolytes your body needs to function properly. Good hydration is essential for supporting overall wellness and organ function. It also helps promote healthy skin, delivers vital nutrients to cells, keeps joints lubricated, and helps regulate body temperature.

Giving your body the water it needs also helps you rest better and maintain a positive frame of mind. Think of it this way; hydration isn’t just about satisfying your thirst. It’s a vital factor in maintaining a well-balanced body during the summer season.

How Much Water Is Enough?

Good question! Truth be told, the old “6 to 8 cups of water per day” rule may be sufficient for some, but it doesn’t apply across the board. Everyone’s hydration needs are different. Factors like age, weight, health, climate, and activity level should be considered when determining your ideal hydration rate. 

Many experts recommend the following guideline for daily water intake for healthy adults:

  • 3.7 liters (15.5 cups or 125 ounces) for men
  • 2.7 liters (11.5 cups or 91 ounces) for women

Or you can use this simple equation that uses your body weight and divides it in half. So, for example, if you weigh 150 pounds, your daily water requirement is 75 ounces.

It’s essential to listen closely to your body and adjust accordingly. Drink whenever you’re thirsty and try to drink throughout the day, including an hour before bedtime.

What Counts As Water?

Beverages such as tea, coffee, sports drinks, and juices contain some water, but you should avoid caffeine and sugar. And before you reach for an alcoholic beverage, remember that even though they contain water, they can lead to dehydration due to their diuretic properties.  

Don’t forget that some foods can help you rack up those ounces. Fruits like melons (e.g., watermelon, cantaloupe, and honeydew), peaches, and oranges have high water content. And vegetables, including zucchini, bell peppers, cucumbers, and lettuce, are additional options for adding water to your diet.  

How Do EcoDrink Naturals Help?

If you’ve stayed in the sun too long, you know how it can zap your energy. In the hydration game, the best defense is a good offense! Lily’s EcoDrink Naturals drink mixes transform ordinary H2O into nutrient-dense refreshment.

Each sugar-free packet delivers restorative electrolytes that keep you hydrated and 28 essential absorbable nutrients. Keep them in your bag, desk, or vehicle for easy on-the-go replenishment!

Water Is Boring! Any Ideas?

Many people don’t hydrate appropriately because they don’t like the taste of water. This is especially true with children. Lily EcoDrink Naturals are great for ages four and up, and they’re available in incredible flavors, including Fruit Punch, Berry, Peach Mango, and Strawberry Lemonade. Homemade popsicles are a fun and healthy hack to beat the heat your kids will love!
