The peak of summer heat has just begun and it’s easy to become dehydrated. Rebecca’s interview with Gloss Incorporated, a women’s website, shared the importance of staying hydrated. She detailed how losing 2% of our body weight in the summer heat can cause major health risks. Another caution is to drink fluid while exercising outside for longer than an hour. Two to four ounces of water every 20 minutes is ideal and will keep you at the top of your game. If you find yourself bored with water, Fruit 2O Essentials is the perfect alternative. It’s not worth becoming dehydrated because you dislike water. While Rebecca’s top pick is a yummy peach mango, there are flavors for every palate!
