Drinking is important for those who do sports, everyone knows that now. What does water do in your body. How much you have to drink, that is less clear. It is difficult to give a general drinking directive that fits all athletes. When you exercise, you drink water to compensate for the loss of fluid in the effort, but that loss of moisture is dependent on person to person: some people just sweat more than others. On average, you lose a liter of body fluid during one hour of exercise. The more intensive the effort or the warmer and humid the conditions in which you exercise, the greater the loss of moisture. Those who limit themselves to half an hour of moderate physical activity do not necessarily have to drink a lot extra. The daily amount of 1.5 liters of water is then in principle sufficient. If you exercise more or longer, it is recommended to drink extra water before, during and after exercise to prevent dehydration. Dehydration ensures that the heat regulation of your body is disturbed. This can lead to increased heart rate, increased body temperature, fatigue and reduced performance. Dehydration also has a mental effect: it reduces your motor control and your reaction speed, and it influences your judgment. In addition, gastrointestinal burden can be prevented by delayed gastric emptying. Fatigue solved by drinking water.
Fortunately, the remedy for all that mischief is simple: make sure you drink enough water. Moisture and drinking water.
Do not wait until you feel thirsty. Thirst is the very first sign of dehydration. Drink plenty of water! Give the body what it needs: Water.
Drinking water. Only when you are sporting for more than an hour, you will benefit from a sports drink.
Do not drink too cold or too hot drinks. The ideal temperature is about 10 to 15 degrees, the moisture is absorbed the fastest in your body.
If your urine is dark in color after the exercise, then you should drink more next time.
Avoid caffeine or alcohol after your workout. They work diuretic and increase the production of urine, so you can dry out even more.
Never say never, but it is possible. By drinking too much, your stomach can play during exercise, and in very extreme cases drinking too much water can lead to hyponatremia (a shortage of salt). Women who run or cycle long races, drink a lot of water and do not sweat a lot are most at risk. When the level of sodium in the blood becomes too low, it can lead to nausea, vomiting and headaches but also confusion, reduced reflexes to very exceptional, even fits and coma. Sports drinks with sufficient sodium offer a solution in such situations.
Almost everyone who is involved in sports in one way or another has the feeling that a sports drink is needed for the recovery. Is that true? Do sports drinks ensure that you recover faster from your effort?
