Columbia Orthodontist Advises to Stay Hydrated in The Sun

columbia orthodontistSummer is right around the corner, and that means even more time outside! From the beach, to hiking, to outdoor sports, fun in the sun activities can lead to dehydration. However, it’s very simple to prevent! Our Columbia orthodontist gives some tips on how to easily stay hydrated during the spring and summer months.

For Your Family

Staying hydrated is important, but it’s common to forget to drink enough water when you’re outside enjoying yourself! This is especially true for kids, who may not realize they’re getting dehydrated while running around or playing sports. Keep enough water on hand for the whole family when you’re going outside, playing sports, and spending time in the heat.

Ways to Hydrate

When considering sources of hydration, it’s crucial to keep electrolytes in mind. Electrolytes include potassium, magnesium, and sodium. They allow your body to retain and use water efficiently, keeping you hydrated throughout the day.

There are different ways to hydrate besides simply drinking plain water. Many fruits and vegetables have high water content and are a great source of electrolytes. Keeping these fruits on hand can be fun for the kids and easy to pack for a day outside. Here are some hydrating fruits to keep in mind:

  • Watermelon
  • Grapes
  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Oranges
  • Cantaloupe

Two of the most hydrating vegetables that are also packed with electrolytes include broccoli and celery. Pack these in your next outdoor lunch!

Risks of Dehydration

Dehydration has risks, especially when it’s extremely hot outside. These include:

  • Heat stroke
  • Confusion
  • Fainting

The early symptoms of dehydration include:

  • Extreme thirst
  • Dry mouth
  • Fatigue

Watch out for these early signs and treat dehydration before it becomes serious. Staying hydrated is critical for a good time in the outdoors and keeps everyone feeling great!
