Does Dehydration Affect Your Sleep? Try these Hydration Drinks

Good Nights Only

If you are reading this article that means you have had a lot of bad nights of sleep. Tossing and turning around in your bed thinking to yourself “Maybe the AC is too hot”, “Maybe my pillow is too soft” or “Maybe I need a thinner blanket” and for some people, “Maybe I should get sleeping pills?” What if I told you that your problem can be summarized in one word? Water or the lack thereof.

Good Nights Only

It’s true, the environment of your room and your blanket and bed are important to ensure you have a good night's sleep since it makes your body comfortable. However, it only makes your body comfortable from the outside. What about inside your body where everything is running hot and needs only one thing to cool it down? That one thing is water. I'm sure most people know and understand the importance of hydrating on a daily basis when you're running about in the sun or are just up and about for a majority of the day. Your body loses a lot of water every day along with electrolytes. Water or effervescent hydration tablets such as Reload are a great way to replenish the water and electrolytes lost by your body without resorting to other unhealthier options. Dehydration is a big problem and can really ruin your day. However, what most people don't know is that dehydration can disrupt your sleep as well.


Dehydration causes dryness in your mouth and nasal cavity, causing inconvenience snoring, inability to relax before sleeping and in some cases muscle cramps which can keep you up all night. When you sleep, your body still loses some water through your breathing especially if you sleep with your mouth open. Excessive dehydration is what sometimes wakes you up in the middle of the night looking for a bottle of water. Dehydration can also lead to a parched throat the next morning which is why most people who don’t drink enough water before sleeping, immediately drink a glass of water when they wake up.

Drinking a lot of water may solve this problem, letting you sleep in peace but drinking excessive water can also ruin our sleep by waking you up in the middle of the night with an urge to pee. Drinking less water may not be ideal since your body loses water constantly, especially after a long evening of intense practice or a gym session. If you don't rehydrate properly after your workout, it can also lead to a night of bad sleep. What your body needs is an ideal dose of electrolytes and water which can hydrate you well with just one or two glasses.

The first thing that comes to mind is energy drinks but they also contain caffeine in them which would render your quest for a good night's sleep pointless. However, there are other hydration alternatives. One thing you can try if you're someone who works out or exercises in the evening or night is to try taking a post-workout as it relaxes your muscles and gives them the nutrition they need to recover and get back in shape. Recover is a great effervescent tablet that dissolves in water and gives your muscles all the nutrients and minerals they need to relax. Recover ensures that you are well hydrated after your workout. This, in turn, helps you fall asleep faster since you won't have any tightness or cramps in the middle of the night. Another way of staying hydrated is taking effervescent tablets such as Reload which dissolve in a glass of water and provide all the minerals and nutrients necessary for hydration without any of the caffeine or sugars that can keep you up all night. A glass of Reload before bed is all you need to hydrate yourself and have the best sleep in the world. A well-hydrated you will sleep like a baby and wake up the next morning feeling fresh and ready to go.

There's a surprising and easy solution to your sleeping problems. Hydration. Stay hydrated and have a good night's sleep every time and nothing makes hydrating easier than Fast&Up Reload. Click here to learn more.
