scorching heat and heatstrock....


Hot summers and scorching heat sweat and lots of cases of heatstroke and dehydration its really important to take precautions …..stay at home is not the solution we all know that so we have to see some other important tips  Very high temperatures in summer, coupled with strenuous exercises, lead to excessive perspiration, which in turn leads to loads of fluid loss from the body.
To replenish, we can depend on water and other beverages, seasonal fruits and vegetables to meet the increased fluid needs.

Since our body cannot store water, one must drink plenty of it to recover losses and maintain healthy functioning of body cells.
During summers, the water intake could mean even double the recommended water intake which is about six to eight glasses of water.
As much as two litres can be lost in excessive heat. Therefore, beverages are extremely essential to stay hydrated.
Inadequate water intake can lead to hyper filtration that damages the kidneys and leads to the formation of renal stones.
Just like hunger is not a reliable indicator for food, similarly, thirst is also not a reliable indicator for water intake. People with a high thirst threshold have higher water needs compared to others.

Besides water, certain healthy beverages like cold soups, fresh fruit juices and squashes can prove to be refreshing. Whether they are part of a meal or in between, a refreshing drink can help you rejuvenate just when you begin to wilt with soaring temperatures. Just like choosing your food, the choice of your drink can make a difference between how you feel and how it affects your body’s water balance.
The ideal drink is either pure drinking water or that which provides health benefits and replaces minerals and electrolytes.
It can be lightly sweetened but avoid preservatives and chemicals.
 I am trying to introduce few coolers that can help you and your family to fight with this scorching heat and water loss so surprise your family with these exotic coolers and healthy herbal drinks I am sure this will help you all a lot…………your friend
