Check your urine…. if it looks like lemonade or apple juice, you really need to evaluate your water intake.
Dehydration can have many side effects, i.e. weakened immune response, muscle cramps, stiffness, headaches, fatigue, constipation, dry eyes, decrease in cognitive function, contribute to formation of kidney stones and…… joint pain! 😱
👉 About 70-80% of your joint cartilage is made of water. When you are dehydrated water is depleted from joints and other areas, which enables toxins to remain fueling pain and inflammation.
☝️ Try to consume about 50% of your body weight in ounces of water daily. This may be vary depending on the size of a person, activity level, diet, health conditions and medications being used.
Forget the Gatorade, bring on the honeydew, cucumber, lime, lemon, cantaloupe and other fresh fruits or vegetables for electrolytes!!! ……We have been addicted to frozen melon balls in our water lately! Definitely recommend!! 👍👍
