Hydrate

Getting adequately hydrated cannot be stressed enough. It is one of our body’s basic physical requirements and is necessary to keep all our body systems functioning in top condition.

Water also plays an important role in maintaining the health of our muscles as it provides our body with essential electrolytes. Electrolytes are needed for muscle strength and control.

It is generally recommended that the average person drinks approximately two litres of water daily. Bear in mind that people who are extremely active should consume more water as they lose body fluid through sweating and this needs to be replaced.
