Health-conscious company raising hydration awareness for adults, children
Albuquerque, NM -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/06/2016 -- Smart Choice Fitness has released a hydration advisory aimed at raising awareness for water consumption for adults and children throughout Summer 2016 and beyond.
According to an article by Dr. Mercola, dehydration is a far-reaching problem that can affect everyone from kids who bypass water for sweeter beverages to adult drivers who pose a risk to themselves and others by being on the road while dehydrated. The article states statistics from a recent Harvard study, including the fact that more than half of kids in America are dehydrated. Another study showed that nearly 70 percent of boys aged 2-19 consume sugary drinks every day.
Water is necessary for the body to carry out its usual functions, and even slight dehydration can produce symptoms ranging from mood swings, chills, fatigue, dizziness, constipation, sugar cravings, dry or wrinkled skin, dark urine, headache, and more. Being dehydrated can affect everyday tasks, and some drivers are making twice the amount of errors than non-dehydrated drivers.
While the traditional recommendation is for people to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water daily, that general guideline doesn't apply to everyone, it has many variants. Some people could need more water (especially if active), and a video from the Institute of Medicine says that women should drink 90 ounces of water per day and men should consume 125 ounces daily.
'Being dehydrated appears to be accepted as a part of modern day life' says Nigel Piper of SmartChoice Fitness 'Many people are unaware just how beneficial drinking adequate water each day is. Who wants to drink plain water when there so many enticing drinks on the market, not to mention tea and coffee. Water is overlooked and simply does not get the accolade it deserves – benefits such as eliminating toxins from the body, preventing that bloated feeling, improving skin, preventing headaches, helping with digestion to name but a few, it is also a great aid to weight loss! I know when I drink my recommended intake I feel like a different person!'
A great way to ensure proper hydration is to simply carry water with you at all times.
'We know that many people do not like the taste of water, therefore why not try using a Fruit Infuser Water Bottle which enables water to be flavored naturally and to a person's individual taste.'
SmartChoice's Fruit Infuser Water Bottle is available on Amazon.co.uk and is made from thick BPA-free eco-friendly Tritan plastic and offers a lockable flip lid, making it a long-term alternative to spending money on bottled water.
