Staying hydrated is essential after a workout, being in the sun for an afternoon, or after a night of drinking. You help your body maintain normal function by drinking fluids, enabling you to feel better throughout your day.
Illness also puts a greater demand on your body for resources, which can dehydrate you more quickly. Staying hydrated when ill can be difficult when you’re not feeling well, especially if you’re feeling nauseous or sleeping more than usual.
Plain water does not contain electrolytes, which are minerals found in your body that are essential to the proper function of muscles, the pH balance of your blood, and more. Electrolytes are naturally lost when you sweat. Your body does not produce electrolytes on its own, so these minerals must be replaced daily by ingesting food, beverages, or supplements.
