A glass of water, cold cola or a warm tea? Which drink quenches the thirst?

Suffered by the heat, many are desperately searching for the most cooling and thirst-quenching drink. By the way, it is better not to let yourself be thirsty, then it has already got a bit too far. Preventive drinking is the message. But how much and what? Having a thirst is actually a dehydration phenomenon. Once you have a sticking mouth and feel that you really need to drink, you have lost about two percent of your body weight of fluid. When less fluid flows through the bloodstream, neurons send emergency signals to our brains: "Drink. You need it!"

There is also a simple formula to calculate how much water you have to drink per day (body weight multiplied by thirty milliliters). The result is not a fixed datum, but a good reference point.


The human body consists of 60% of water. In other words, it is logical that an annoying feeling will overtake you when you are thirsty. At such times, the best advice is to simply drink water. Finally, H2O, the most simple drink on earth, is still the most hydrating. Looking for an extra cooling effect? Then you can add ice cubes. Even if water loses its hydrating effect for a while, your body must first heat up the liquid before it can be fully absorbed. A slower absorption of water does not make a world of difference, of course. Only when you really crave for some moisture, your body will be more grateful to you after a glass of water at room temperature. A few drops of lemon juice ensure an extra refreshing effect according to experts. Water with minerals is better than just tap water.

Warm tea

Strange but true, a warm tea is refreshing. Nutrition experts explain why and actually it is very simple: because of the heat of the drink you start to perspire, after which the moisture evaporates and the body temperature drops. That is an efficient method to cool down and one that the body already provides when the body temperature is too high. The disadvantage is that a bag of tea will not give psychological satisfaction. There, water is consumed by tea, although you normally do not sweat it.

A fresh pint

What in any case is not a good idea on a sweltering day? Alcoholic beverages can produce a lot, but they do not hydrate. Beer, for example, consists of about 90% water, but the alcohol ensures that the kidneys drain the moisture faster so that such drinks have a drying effect. The toilet visits are no doubt more numerous as the alcohol rises to your head. If you can not resist a well-filled glass of beer, drink a glass of water better. Due to sufficient variation, the dehydration may be less severe so that the subsequent hangover should not be immense.

Soft drinks

What happens in your body if you drink soda. Sugar-rich drinks are actually good for nothing. It is bad for your teeth, the sugar makes you fat, is bad for heart and blood vessels and increases the risk of diabetes. In addition, the sugar dehydrates your body. Soft drinks, up to 7 cubes of sugar. A study published in the American Physiological Society proves that the sugars present will make you more thirsty. In addition, they increase the chance of kidney stones. That glass of cola is therefore better sold according to nutrition experts. If you still want a sweet drink, they give as a tip to drink a small glass. Water with a taste from your water filter Dakabin is still a second and healthier alternative.


Drink in moderation, except for water. And drink before you are thirsty. Actually I should drink more water - Useful tips. If you know yourself that you are not so good at it, it helps to put a liter bottle in front of you. You will automatically drink more often from your water filter Dakabin. Especially in warm weather.

Drinking water during exercise from your water filter Dakabin

It is important to drink enough, especially when it is hot. This certainly also applies during exercise, even then you have to drink enough. Drinking too little can lead to disturbed moisture management, which in turn causes you to perform worse and may even suffer from dehydration symptoms. In this article we tell more about the importance of drinking water during exercise, how much you should drink and when.

Why do you have to drink during exercise

You've probably noticed it yourself, you get warm during exercise. To ensure that your body temperature does not get too high, you start to sweat. Because you start to sweat, your body evaporates moisture and therefore cools you down, so perspiring prevents your body from overheating. So you lose more fluid than normal when you are exercising. To ensure that your fluid balance is not seriously disturbed, it is important to drink enough before, during and after exercise. A disrupted fluid balance can cause many processes in your body to no longer work properly. For example, your muscles will start to function less well and you may suffer from cramps.

How much should you drink from your water filter Dakabin

Calculate how much water you should drink. Prestige Water recommends drinking between 1.5 and 2 liters of fluid per day. We believe that this is still relatively conservative advice and we drink more fluid every day. The color of your urine can work as an indicator to see if you drink enough, if the color of the urine is dark then you need to drink more.
However, when you exercise, your body uses much more fluid than normal. It is therefore advisable to drink more than 2 liters of fluid on a day if you also exercise on that day. During intensive sports you can lose 1 to 2 liters of water per hour. The amount of fluid that you lose during exercise depends, among other things, on your predisposition to sweating. The humidity level, your fitness, the type of sports clothes, the intensity of the training and how warm the environment you are in are sporting. To prevent dehydration, we recommend that you drink 125 ml to 250 ml per 15 minutes during exercise. You don't have to worry that you drink too much because too much moisture almost never occurs because your kidneys can process a lot of fluid per hour.

When should you drink from your water filter Dakabin

There are people who only start drinking when they get thirsty, but in fact you have had too little to drink. That is why it is important to get enough fluid before you start training, especially when it is hot and you are going to do a heavy workout.
When you are exercising it is also important to drink enough while remembering that when you sweat a lot you should drink more. We recommend drinking between 125 ml and 250 ml of water per quarter. Try to drink smaller quantities on a regular basis because you may experience nausea if you drink a lot in one go.
You must also drink enough after exercise, you must supplement your fluid loss. Do not start drinking when you get thirsty, because then you are actually too late.

Water or sports drinks

Drinking lemon water in the morning is good for you. During exercise you not only lose moisture but also sodium (salt). In addition, you naturally also burn calories during exercise. In sports drinks often contain carbohydrates, salts and vitamins that can supplement these deficiencies. However, this is only necessary if you are intensively active for a longer period of time (in any case longer than 1 hour). This is because your body has sodium in stock to be able to handle a regular workout without suffering from a lack of sodium. It is also important to know that sports drinks contain carbohydrates (sugars) and this is certainly not useful if you want to lose weight by exercising. That is why water is often a great thirst quencher during exercise. 6 Facts about drinking water.
