The importance of good hydration in Sports

A human body consists of 60% water, hence it forms the main component of our body. Fluid is very important to maintain health and a good balance of our organism hence every moisture loss should be compensated. If you are a sports person or you are connected with sports, keeping yourself hydrated is a thumb rule for you to carry out your day.

Fast&up Hydration Drinks For Sports

Here are some important points when we talk about hydration in Sports.

What is Dehydration

Dehydration refers to shortage of water, which is caused due to an imbalance between the amount of fluid that we absorb and which is let out. Dehydration in the later part can have serious consequences on the body since water is involved in a large number of chemical reactions to make sure there is a proper functioning of our body. Also not to forget, every physical effort produces heat which leads to sweat which increases the risk of dehydration.

Dehydration is hence is the worst enemy of the athlete and his performance.

It is very essential for every athlete to reduce the loss of fluid. If you lose 2% fluid of body weight, an athlete’s performance reduces around 10 to 20% can already occur. Dehydration of more than 3% of the body weight can even have serious impact, like heat exhaustion and heat stroke in hot and / or humid conditions. 

To be precise, the more dehydration, the more it will hamper an athlete’s performance and health!

What are the signs of dehydration?

  • A feeling of thirst
  • An increase in heart rate
  • A drop in blood pressure
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Lower performance: fatigue, shortness of breath, muscle pain.
