MISSION, KS--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2014) - (Family Features) When the mercury drops, it's more important than ever to stay properly hydrated. During the winter, people may not seem to sweat as much as in the summer, but that doesn't lessen one's risk of dehydration.
"As a hospital physician, I've seen far too many people succumb to dehydration-related health scares, stemming from high-elevation ski trips to travel to simply forgetting to drink water because it's cold outside," says Dr. Ralph E. Holsworth, director of clinical and scientific research for Essentia Water and medical physician at Southeast Colorado Hospital. "Staying properly hydrated can help ensure good health through the winter, reduce dry skin and even help you flush toxins out of your body to reduce the chances of getting a winter cold or flu."
Boost your body's hydration
Roughly 75 percent of the North American population is chronically dehydrated. By the time you feel thirsty (and sometimes when you don't) you may already be getting dehydrated. Whether you're skiing or just taking a walk on a brisk day, the experts at Essentia Water provide these simple tips to help you stay hydrated throughout the winter season and beyond.
While you may not feel it, your body is in need of proper hydration even on the coldest winter days. For more tips for staying well, visit www.essentiawater.com.
