Hydration and Your Health

The Cabinet — 10.29.20
by Team Hilma with the help of our friends at Cure

Your body is made up of 75% water. Almost every cell, organ, and tissue needs water to operate. Long story short, staying hydrated is crucial for your bodyfrom the immune system, to your gutto function at its best. They don’t say water is the essence of life for nothing!  


What’s the science behind this? The nutrients you feed into your bloodstreamwhether that’s your daily Hilma or your favorite leafy green saladcan’t get from point A to point B without water, their primary vehicle. The bloodstream is made mostly of water, so proper hydration enables the transportation of nutrients throughout the body. Hydration also helps detoxification, meaning the clearing out foreign invaders and other stuff your body needs to get rid of to stay healthy.


We know it can be hard to stay hydrated, which is why we called in the hydration experts at Cure to share some helpful tips to make sure you’re equipped to stay your healthiest as the seasons change.


We love Cure because just like us, their products are backed by science and rooted in natureplus they also take formulation very seriously. Cure’s formula is based on the World Health Organization’s formula for Oral Rehydration Solution (what you would get as a hydrating IV drip) and has no added sugar or other junk.


Here’s what Hilma and Cure want you to keep in mind: 


Start off on a good note 


Hydrating first thing in the morning may make it easier to build a habit and increase your daily water intake. Check out our friend Kate’s recipe for a holistic water tonic (she’s a nurse and drinks this every morning)!  


Drink before you’re thirsty 


When you first start feeling parched, that could mean you’re already dehydrated. Dehydration of up to 1-2 percent of your body’s water content can lead to cognitive impairment such as stress, agitation, and forgetfulness. Always keep a water bottle with youwhether its on your desk or in your bagso you have easy access to water all day long.


Level up with electrolytes 


Sometimes water isn’t enough on its own. Electrolytes control how much water your body retains. During hot days, sweaty workouts, or even a night of drinking, your body needs those electrolytes to maintain your hydration levels. The most important electrolytes are sodium and potassium, both found in Cure’s hydration sticks.


Consume consciously 


While water hydrates you, there are some beverages that may dehydrate youlike coffee, tea, soda, and alcohol. Alcohol is a diuretic, which removes water from the body. Drinks such as coffee and soda are mild diuretics, although they can still have dehydrating effects on the body. Balancing those beverages with water and electrolytes is key to maintaining your hydration levels.
