Stay Hydrated to Stay Healthy

Happy National Hydration Day! Today we raise a (water) glass to the myriad benefits that come with keeping our bodies fully hydrated. Benefits like…

  • Maximized physical performance
  • Weight loss assistance
  • Steady energy levels
  • Support for optimal brain function
  • Regular bowel movements
  • Healthy skin

And so much more!

If the benefits of proper hydration don’t entice you, perhaps the downsides of skimping on water will have you running to the water cooler.

Water takes up somewhere between 50% and 60% of your total body mass at any given time, and a 4% reduction in body water is considered dehydration. What’s scarier, if you are consistently at a smaller loss of just 1% to 3% of your total body water, you risk negative effects on your mood, cognition, metabolism, and kidney and cardiac health.

So how can you be sure you’re hydrated? The National Academy of Medicine recommends that men get 3.7 liters (125.1 oz.) of water per day and women get 2.7 liters (91.3 oz.), with a portion of that coming from food. Equally important are electrolytes; sodium and potassium are the most commonly imbalanced electrolytes in most populations. That’s where a comprehensive hydration solution comes into play!

Nuun Sport tablets feature a complete electrolyte profile, ensuring you get the most out of your water. These tablets contain:

  • Sodium to aid in fluid balance/retention, nerve function, and muscle contractions
  • Potassium to alleviate and prevent muscle cramping
  • Magnesium to aid in muscle function and relaxation
  • Calcium to support bone health and regulate muscle contractions and heart rhythm
  • Chloride to help move fluids in and out of cells and maintain electrolyte and fluid balance

Cheers to National Hydration Day—It's Nuun somewhere in the world!
