Keeping Your Cool

Keeping Your Cool

August is officially around the corner and you’re doing your best to stay cool, we totally get it and we’re with you! We’ve put together a few bullet points that will keep you motivated to drink as much water as possible this Summer:

Reasons to Drink Water:

  • Regulates body temperature
  • Transports food throughout the body
  • Assists in delivering glucose to the muscles
  • Helps remove toxins and waste from the body
  • Maintains blood volume and blood pressure
  • Cushions and lubricates joints
  • Keeps blood thin and circulating

Drinking Water Results In:

  • Increased energy
  • Peak muscle function
  • Less cramping
  • Speedier recovery
  • More comfort during exertion

This is why Fitletic is so dedicated to developing superior hydration packs. Staying hydrated during exertion, especially in the heat, doesn’t just improve performance and comfort, it is critical for safety and health. We want to meet all your hydration needs and let you go totally hands-free while you do it! Ideally, you should be made up of a certain percentage of water, just like body fat percentage and muscle mass. It comes down to the numbers, the amount of water in the human body ranges from 50%-75%.  To get really technical, bodybuilding.com states that water makes up nearly 85% of your brain, about 80% of your blood and about 70% of your lean muscle. The thing about water is that you can’t replace it with something else. In fact, many of the beverages we drink do the opposite and actually steal water from the body instead of increase the amount. If all of the positives such as the reasons to drink water and what drinking water results in doesn’t motivate you, let’s flip the coin and look at the other side. Being dehydrated is the #1 cause of daytime fatigue, a 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, difficulty with basic math, and difficulty completing basic tasks. Without the proper amount of water, your body’s circulation can even falter. If you’re dehydrated, odds are your body is not even burning as much fat as it’s able to if hydrated correctly. If you’re into taking care of yourself and part of the self-love craze, look no further. One of the biggest and best beauty tips from models to actresses to everyday people is to drink water, water, water. Not only does it leave your skin dewy and smooth, it can leave your body odor smelling fresh, your breath better, and your hair and nails stronger. Water does just about everything you want that we pay oodles of dollars for in powders, creams and serums. Invest in becoming aware of your water intake and be prepared to see greater results. This quick fix is no joke! Fitletic is here to assist in your quest for proper hydration. Just check out our products today and you’ll be amazed at the variety of options both in function and aesthetics. Happy Summer shopping, athletes!
