The Importance of Hydration

The Importance of Hydration

We don’t have to tell you that hydration is important. It’s something that has been ingrained into our minds since youth. Despite this, 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. Dehydration can impact your mood, alertness, brain function, ability to concentrate and exercise vigorously. Other symptoms include headaches, dizziness, cramps, and fatigue – so maybe drinking water is good? Who knew. 

Hydration 101

Water is often seen as a method of quenching your thirst – but there are many other crucial reasons to drink enough water. Proper hydration helps regulate body temperature, keep joints lubricated, prevent infections, deliver nutrients to cells, improve sleep, and keep organs functioning properly. 

Why Vitapod is Better: 

Vitapod’s blend of electrolytes regulate the total amount of water in your body and aid in the function of muscles and cells. Electrolytes help with water retention which is important since the average adult needs a large amount of water to function at peak health– with men requiring an average of 3.7 liters a day and women requiring 2.7 liters a day. 

While water is great for hydration, Vitapod hydrates better than water because the electrolytes ensure it’s not cleared too quickly by the kidneys. Foods like fruits and vegetables help you stay hydrated, too, like oranges, peaches, and watermelon, as well as celery, zucchini, and tomatoes, all contribute to hydration. On average, we eat only 2, instead of the recommended 5 to 9 fruits and vegetables daily, leading to a nutrition gap in key vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants - then the “big idea” came to life. 

The Vitapod team decided to tackle the importance of hydration head-on, using the very best science and technology to support your family’s health and the health of our planet. Water is essential for life, right? Without it, we can only survive for a few days. Every cell, tissue, and organ in your body relies on water to function correctly. However, water can also get boring. So we decided to transform everyday tap water into something pure, refreshing, and delicious. 

How Can You Tell If You’re Dehydrated? 

  1. Your urine is darker than usual. 
  2. You wake up feeling thirsty.
  3. Your bodyweight dips 2 or 3 lbs. within a day. 

Dehydration is a simple result of our bodies not replenishing the water we lost. You might reach for water, then a sports drink, or a cup of coffee and find you are still dehydrated.

Vitapod was created with the idea to give your body all of the things it needs and not what you don’t - low sodium, zero sugar, and no artificial flavors or sweeteners. If you are looking for a boost of hydration, Vitapod might be the solution to your hydration woes.
