Expert’s Opinion

Expert’s Opinion

“Rehydration is the process of restoring water and electrolytes to the body. It is important to rehydrate after exercising, especially in hot weather. Symptoms of dehydration include thirst, dark urine, fatigue, and headache.To prevent dehydration, drink plenty of fluids before, during, and after exercise. Water is the best choice for most people. However, if you are exercising for more than an hour or in hot weather, you may need a sports drink that contains electrolytes!”
