Hanson Creek Wants To Help Prevent The Dangers Of Mild Dehydration
(EMAILWIRE.COM, November 25, 2013 ) Durango, Colorado -- When most people think of dehydration, they often associate it to extreme situations: when water is unavailable such as in the desert or the middle of the ocean; extreme heat or physical exhaustion; or other medical and physical conditions when dehydration poses serious threats to one's well-being. Numerous studies and actual cases have proven that severe dehydration could cause critical damage to a person's health, and may at times even cause death. Most healthy individuals assume if they are free of such extreme situations that they are free from the dangers of dehydration.
However, studies have found that even seemingly-innocent mild dehydration could adversely affect a healthy person not just physically, but mentally as well. In a study published in the Journal of Nutrition, it has been found that slight dehydration could significantly alter mood and cognitive function in healthy young women. Researchers have found that the adverse effects of mild dehydration affected these women whether they were at rest or performing physically demanding activities such as regular exercise. "Participants reported increased anger and hostility, and fatigue-inertia, as well as a decrease in vigor-activity when dehydrated." A similar study published in the British Journal of Nutrition found that the cognitive performance of healthy adult men were also affected by the same mild dehydration.
Although the studies were conducted using clinically-induced and controlled dehydration, mild dehydration can occur even without physical exertionall it takes to get dehydrated is to wait until one feels thirsty before taking in any fluid. By the time a person feels the sensation of thirst, they are on their way to dehydration. Feeling thirsty is normal in healthy adults and is a symptom that signals that they have already lost more than 1 percent of water in their body; it takes a loss of only 1.5 percent water volume for mild dehydration to occur.
When a healthy person feels exhausted or just "not in the mood to do much", one possible cause could be dehydration. To ensure that you are properly hydrated, it is advisable to carry at least 16 ounces of water with you at all times. Don't wait until you're thirsty. Sipping a few ounces of water throughout the day could help keep you hydrated, reducing the risk of feeling irritable, tired and worn-out even after a whole day's activity.
However, buying bottled water or anything that comes in a disposable container is both economically and environmentally unsustainable. Imagine having to buy at least one bottled water per day at $1.00 each if you find them on salethat's $365.00 each year, not to mention the impact of the production and waste to the environment! Bottled water could prove to be too expensive in the long run, and it's unfriendly to the environment to be using so much plastic. Unknown to most consumers, the FDA's minimum requirement for bottled water is just high enough to meet the same standards as ordinary tap water. So why spend more?
By investing in a Stainless steel reusable water bottle, you save a lot of money and the help the environment too. But don't just grab any reusable water containersome that are made from plastic may contain BPA that could cause heart problems, cancer and other health risks. When choosing a water container, opt for something such as a BPA-free Stainless steel water bottle with no plastic or chemical lining that could leach toxins into your water. You want a reusable water bottle that uses food grade stainless steel and is designed for portability and convenience.
Keep hydrated before your body feels thirty by keeping water on hand with a quality reusable water bottle such as Hanson Creek's new 25 ounce Stainless steel water bottle. A stainless steel reusable water bottle is a healthy, easy solution to preventing chronic dehydration.
