Striking the right hydration balance can be tricky. The body, which is about 60 percent water, needs water to stay alive. Every system depends on it – from carrying nutrients to the cells and flushing toxins from organs.
When it comes to gauging summer heat, you always hear the saying “It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity!” While humidity certainly can make high temperatures feel hotter (up to 15-20 degrees!), dry heat can be just as taxing on the body and staying hydrated is essential to keeping your body operating in top form this summer.
