WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?
Why do we care so much about hydration?
Well, you probably carry around a water bottle every day. You make sure you stay hydrated because it means you perform stronger and think clearly, right? We agree. But, we wanted to create an enhanced drink for those times when you just need an added boost of hydration!
That’s why we created Pocari Sweat. A perfect balance of the essential electrolytes, minerals, carbohydrates and water is better to replenish what your body loses when you sweat. It’s been scientifically proven to work faster and last longer than water alone. When we’re properly hydrated, we feel ready for anything.
That’s why we care about hydration.
Why is hydration important?
It’s important to stay hydrated for many reasons, including maintaining the body’s ability to regulate internal temperature and keeping joints lubricated, as well as preventing infections and keeping organs functioning properly. Being well-hydrated also helps to improve your sleep quality, ability to focus, and can boost your overall mood and health.
How much water should I drink to rehydrate?
How much water it takes to rehydrate can vary from person to person, and on how much water you’re looking to replenish. However, it’s always recommended that you sip water regularly throughout the day – as drinking too quickly actually slows down the hydration process – and aim for around two to three ounces.
How to rehydrate fast?
Steadily drinking water is effective at rehydrating, however, Pocari Sweat has been scientifically proven to rehydrate you faster and for longer than drinking water by itself. You can find out more about how Pocari Sweat works to rehydrate you here.
What happens when you are dehydrated?
Many things happen to the body when you are dehydrated, however, the most common signs and symptoms of dehydration are:
- Increased thirst
- Dry mouth
- Dry skin
- Infrequent urination
The colour of your urine can also be a useful indicator of your hydration levels. Generally, the paler the color, the better hydrated you are. However, color can change for other reasons including diet, using medications, and some medical conditions. Find out more here.
What’s the best drink for dehydration?
The best drink for dehydration is one that can replace the essential electrolytes that are lost when you sweat. These include nutrients such as sodium, sugar, magnesium, and carbohydrates. This is why Pocari Sweat is formulated to replicate the body’s natural balance of nutrients, so you can recover quickly and for longer.
