The Best Drink For Hydration This Fall

Do you get bored with drinking water that’s, well…plain? It’s totally normal! Since water makes up about 60% of our bodies, we know it’s super important to get a good amount of H2O every day.

When the temperature starts to fall outside, you may not feel as thirsty as you did when sweating it out during the summer. But it’s still important to get fluids in because your body needs it for all of those healthy things it does. Like what? Moisturizing skin, circulating blood and pumping oxygen to your brain. (Yep, a good hydrating beverage will help fight that brain fog!)

It’s recommended the average person get at least eight glasses of water per day. But did you know that your needs can vary based on many different factors? Your age, activity level, the climate where you live and lots of other things affect how much water you really need.

So if your water is tasting a little too watery these days, try a few other options to make sure you keep drinking.

The Best Drinks to Stay Hydrated

Water

Well, OK…yes, water will be your best option to get the amount of water your body needs to function. So of course, this one will top our list. But if you are doing a lot of endurance activities or other strenuous exercising, you may need a little more than just plain water.

Water being poured into a glass with True Lemon Fruit Infusions laid on the table.

Fruit-Infused Water

If you’re not sold on the taste of regular water, try adding a little flavor. Water infused with fruit has a little burst of flavor. You get the sweetness without unnecessary added ingredients like sugar. It can take your drink from humdrum to yum yum will also adding a few health benefits from the fresh fruits.

Sometimes the prep and mess is not worth the it for fruit-infused waters. It’s also good to let the water infuse over several hours to get the max flavor out of your fruits before drinking it.True Lemon Fruit Infusions give you the burst of citrus and fruit flavors without the fuss or waste. 

Sports Drink

Sports drinks contain a percentage of carbohydrates, usually 6-8 percent, along with electrolytes. During and after intense exercise or endurance sports, replenishing carbs and electrolytes is super important. Sports drinks help your body retain water and rehydrate after large amounts of fluid loss. Just be mindful of the sugar content in some pre-bottled sports drinks or powder packets.

True Lemon Flavor Enhancers

True Citrus Lemonades and Limeades are delicious, 10-calorie, and Non-GMO. They are convenient to take with you on the go – just drop a few packets into your bag. When you’re ready to hydrate, open a packet, pour it into your water bottle and shake it up. The variety of flavors will give you all the fruity satisfaction you need.

Coconut Water

This is another great option for recovery. It’s nature’s electrolyte drink! Coconut water contains potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus and sodium, so it’s almost like a natural sports drink. It also has sugar. But they are natural sugars rather than added sugar, making it a better option than some other electrolyte-replenishing beverages.

Fruit Juice

Another fruity beverage option. Most fruit juices contain a large amount of water, around 85 percent. You want to be sure you are selecting the option that is 100 percent fruit juice, however. This will give you the most benefits with natural nutrients. Again, for fruit juice you want to be mindful of the ingredients. Check the label and be aware of which beverages are high in sugar and calories.

Watermelon

It’s not a drink, per se. But watermelon is actually a super hydrating fruit. Like the name indicates, its water content is pretty high. Up to 92% of the melon is made of water. It also has a healthy dose of vitamins A and C and electrolytes. This makes it a great option for re-hydrating after a day spent outside or a bout of vigorous activity.

True Lemon Energys

For hydration and sustainable energy, try replacing one of those cups of coffee with True Lemon Energys. These are great for an afternoon pick-me-up or to hydrate before exercise or intense activity. They are convenient to take on the go and with a quick pour and shake, you can fuel up for your workout. With natural energy from green tea, you get the caffeine boost you need without the jitters that sometimes come from coffee or other caffeine sources. Sustainable energy all day, water that tastes good and hydration to keep you going strong – it’s a win-win!

What are the signs of dehydration?

Avoiding dehydration during cooler months is the first step to staying healthy. If you feel thirsty, then you’re likely already experiencing dehydration.However, even if you don’t feelthirsty, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re hydrated. And since we aren’t sweating as much when the temperatures are lower outside, it’s likely that our desire to grab a bottle of water will slow down, too.

Here are some additional signs of dehydration to be aware of as a reminder to take a few swigs of H2O every once in a while:
·       Dry mouth
·       Bad breath
·       Infrequent urination
·       Dry skin
·       Fatigue
·       Dizziness
·       Headaches
·       Muscle cramps
·       Constipation
·       Craving sweet foods
