hydration 101

  • Dehydration

    A mere 2% loss in body weight through sweat while exercising has been known to decrease exercise performance greatly. Dehydration cannot only lead to decreased performance, but it can cause muscle cramping, headaches, nausea, and fatigue. In order to prevent dehydration, hydrate according to thirst, replenish lost electrolytes with Nuun Active or Nuun Energy, and drink more water throughout the day

  • Sweat Loss

    Average sweat losses ranges from 1-1.5 liters per hour; however, is very dependent on (but not limited to) the individuals fitness level and environmental conditions. Sodium is the most abundant electrolyte lost via sweat; therefore, it’s important to consume sports drinks with higher amounts of sodium during the activity.

  • Electrolytes

    Electrolytes are tiny particles that are electronically charged and are lost to some extent via sweat when exercising. Electrolytes play a key function in marinating fluid balance, and supporting normal body function. Sodium and Potassium are the two electrolytes needed at greater quantity, due to their important roles in fluid retention and preventing muscle cramping respectively. Magnesium and Calcium complete the electrolyte profile by aiding in muscle contractions and movement.

  • Water

    Consuming an adequate amount of water throughout the day can help increase energy, and delay the onset of fatigue, it can keep your skin and hair healthy, it can help digest and absorb food faster. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends the adult men intake about 3.4 liters per day, and the adult women intake 2.7 liters per day in order to maintain healthy body functions.

  • Hyponatremia

    A serious condition, in which blood sodium levels are significantly decreased, resorting in a negative balance within the internal Na/K pump. This incidence can occur when an athlete consumes too much plain water. With over-hydrating with plain water you can flush out critical electrolyte stores that are needed for working muscles and normal body function. To avoid this situation, consume an electrolyte rich drink while exercising.
