Summer is hot, do you really drink water?
Summer is hot and sweating, the body loses a lot of water with sweat. Therefore, pay special attention to drink plenty of water in summer to supplement the body's water lost due to sweating.
When it comes to drinking water, maybe you will say, who won't drink water? However, you know how much water you should drink every day, what kind of water is good, and how to drink it properly?
Let me tell you one by one.
Water is the source of life
Water is the source of everything, and more than 60% of the human body is water. These waters are very important to us. They can transport the substances needed in the body, and they are also carriers of various biochemical reactions, such as sweating, excretion, and breathing.
10% of water loss in the body threatens health. If 20% of water loss is life-threatening, it is enough to show the importance of water to life.
How much water to drink every day
Water is an important part of the diet and is a necessary substance for all life. Its demand is mainly affected by factors such as age, physical activity, and ambient temperature.
Adults with light physical activity drink at least 1500-1700 milliliters (about 7-8 cups) of water per day. Under the condition of high temperature or strong physical activity, it should be increased appropriately. Insufficient or excessive drinking water will cause harm to human health.
The water content of the diet accounts for about one-third. It is recommended that the daily intake of drinking water and the overall diet (including water in food, such as soup, porridge, milk, etc.) total between 2700-3000 ml.
What water to drink
There are many types of drinking water on the market, such as mineral water, mineral water, purified water, magnetized water, etc., which is dazzling. What kind of water do you drink?
In fact, the fundamental purpose of drinking water is to meet the needs of the body. To put it bluntly, water is mainly a carrier of nutrients and metabolic waste in the body, it is just a carrier. No matter what water you drink, you can't use it as a source of nutrition, nor can it have any magical effect.
As long as the water meets safety standards, you can drink it with confidence.
For ordinary households, if boiled water is boiled in a clean place, it is also a good choice. If the water quality is polluted, it is recommended to install a filter or a pure water machine for drinking. Mineral water and purified water are more suitable.
Drink warm or not cool
Drinking cold water will make the gastrointestinal mucosa suddenly cold, which causes the original open capillaries to contract, causing gastrointestinal discomfort and even diarrhea. When the hot water enters the esophagus, it is easy to damage the esophageal mucosa and induce esophageal cancer.
Therefore, the temperature of drinking water can not be too hot or too cold, the suitable temperature is 10 ℃ ~ 30 ℃.
Drink light or not sweet
Summer sweating not only loses water, but also minerals, vitamins, and amino acids. Therefore, when the weather is hot, you should drink some saline to supplement sodium. Homemade mung bean soup, lemonade, etc. not only cool down the heat, but also supplement vitamins and other nutrients.
It should be reminded that all kinds of sweet drinks are high in sugar and energy, and the nutrients are relatively monotonous.
When drinking water, many people are used to "beverage", but this method of drinking water is not good for health. Drinking a lot of water quickly will quickly dilute the blood and increase the burden on the heart. It is also easy to swallow a lot of air together, which can easily cause hiccups or bloating.
The correct way to drink water is to put a mouthful of water in your mouth and swallow it slowly in several times so that you can fully moisturize your mouth and throat and effectively relieve thirst.
Drink early or late
When there are conditions such as thirst, upset, or fatigue headache, it means that the body's cells have begun to dehydrate, and drinking water at this time is already "passive drinking." Over time, the human body will be in a potential water shortage state for a long time, which is not conducive to normal metabolism.
Therefore, drinking water, like eating, also needs to be regular, changing from passive drinking to active drinking, and drinking before feeling "thirsty."
Drinking water also "eats" water
Water in fruits and vegetables such as cucumbers, watermelons, and tomatoes is more likely to enter cells than ordinary water. Therefore, while drinking water, it is also necessary to "eat" water.
In addition, fruits and vegetables are also rich in various antioxidants, a variety of minerals and important B vitamins, etc., which are of great benefit to enhance the body's immune aging and resist diseases.
Drink for people
Normal people can judge when to rehydrate by urine color: normal urine is light yellow, and it should be rehydrated if the color is too dark.
In addition, drinking water should also vary from person to person. Patients with acute nephritis and renal failure should not drink too much water. Drink more water than usual when you have a cold or fever.
Here to remind everyone not to drink too much in the summer. Tea drinks are the best in the anti-shushu beverage, especially green tea, which has the effect of relieving thirst and quenching thirst, clearing heat and purging fire.
