Nutrients That Help for Hydration - Fast&Up

Is water enough to treat your dehydration?

While water is considered to be the most effective way to stay hydrated, your body still requires adequate replenishment of all the lost electrolytes after excessive sweating, traveling, extreme sun exposure, hangover, diarrhea, fever or fatigue. Various electrolyte drinks offer an ideal combination of all the essential vitamins and minerals that help with daily hydration.

So, which are the best vitamins that will enable optimum hydration?

1. SODIUM

Sodium is essential in the regulation of osmolarity, acid-base balance, and the membrane potential of cells. Sodium is also involved in active transport across cell membranes and maintenance of an appropriate intracellular fluid balance. Thus, with regards to hydration, sodium helps replenish salts and maintains fluid balance.

2. POTASSIUM

Potassium is the principal intracellular cation which is found in plasma. It exhibits benefits in limiting fluid loss, maintenance of kidney and adrenal function and maintenance of electrolyte balance. Potassium is also involved in the functioning of nerve and muscle cells. Potassium levels can often change with change in sodium levels.

3. CHLORIDE

Chloride, the key anion in the extracellular fluid compartment, is vital in maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance, acid-base balance and is a necessary constituent of gastric juice. If the chloride levels drop, you can become dehydrated.

4. MAGNESIUM

Magnesium is one of the vital electrolytes required for efficient hydration. Its plays a key role in many physiological functions of the body, including muscular contractions and cramp prevention and ensures optimal hydration. Thus, it is a constituent of various electrolyte drinks.

5. ZINC

Reduces and helps prevent dehydration. It also plays an important role in metabolic functions as well as immunity building functions due to antioxidant action. Zinc is used either as a preventive measure or as a therapeutic measure in the management of diarrhoea which is a cause of acute dehydration. Thus, Zinc helps to reduce severity and duration of fluid loss in various situations such as diarrhoea and vomiting.
