As the weather begins to heat up and the seasons change, staying hydrated becomes even more important. Water is essential to stay healthy and hydrated, but sometimes we need more than just water to feel our best. Today we break down how CF(Rehydrate)® can provide optimal hydration to have you feeling your very best this spring!
Why doesn’t water always cut it?
In order to stay hydrated, an adequate balance of water and electrolytes is crucial. Electrolytes are minerals (sodium, potassium, magnesium, etc.) that are involved in an abundance of internal events, such as neurotransmission and maintaining a balanced pH in the blood. CF(Rehydrate)® is an excellent source of concentrated electrolytes for medical-grade hydration.
When do I need an electrolyte drink?
There are certain situations where we need more than just water to stay hydrated. Regardless of your age, gender, or activity level, we all depend on vitamins and minerals to help fuel our minds and bodies. What many people don’t understand is that electrolytes are simply a category of these vital minerals. A few examples include sodium, potassium, and magnesium.
Situation 1: Exercise
Ever been drenched in sweat after pushing through a challenging workout? Well, sweat is more than just water. It’s full of electrolytes that are lost quickly through sweat all over your body. So, before, during and after an intensive workout or sporting event, CF(Rehydrate)® is beneficial for fast and effective recovery and hydration.
Situation 2: When you are sick
When you catch a flu bug or bad case of food poisoning, your body quickly loses vast amounts of electrolytes and fluid through diarrhea, vomiting, or fever sweats. Therefore, replacing those electrolytes is of the utmost importance. CF(Rehydrate)® can help replace what is lost.
Situation 3: When you drink alcohol
Certain beverages, such as alcohol, are natural diuretics, meaning they draw water out of your bloodstream and into your gastrointestinal tract, resulting in dehydration. CF(Rehydrate)® can help you replace electrolytes lost from drinking and make you feel better after a night out.
How do I recover from dehydration?
Water is an integral part of the rehydration process. However, timely consumption of a complete nutrition beverage with a range of electrolytes is crucial for a full recovery. Drinks that contain at least half of your daily value of key electrolytes is a good place to start. For example, CF(Rehydrate)® includes a minimum of 50% of the electrolytes, phosphorus, selenium, and sodium in a 32 oz bottle to ensure you get the fluid and nutrients you need, quickly.
