With these wonderfully warm days filled with fun activities, remember to stay hydrated to avoid becoming ill. Did you know we should be drinking 1/2 of our body weight in ounces of water everyday? This is on a typical day that isn't filled with extensive heat. Remember to increase your intake of fluids on days when you're losing more fluid. Ideally, your water should include a pinch of premier pink salt to replenish electrolytes lost. This makes a wonderful homemade electrolyte drink that isn't filled with artificial colors or other ingredients that we cannot pronounce. We recommend Premier Research's Pink Salt which is Medeterranian and Hawaiian Alaea Sea Salt that is air dried and full of trace elements.
Some signs of dehydration include thirst, dry warm skin, dry lips, dizziness and nausea. Avoid these symptoms by staying hydrated. Another drink worth trying is mixing coconut water with pineapple juice and a pinch of pink salt. It's full of potassium and tastes great. This makes a wonderful after-sport drink that both adults and kids will LOVE.
Speaking of LOVE, check out our new LOVE BOTTLES that are new to BARRINGTON. Drink your water in a great looking, earth-friendly bottle supercharged with a little love. If 1000 people use a love bottle we reduce our plastic bottle consumption by about 365,000 bottles a year...and look good doing it! So cheers to the heat and staying hydrated!
