As summer approaches and temperatures begin to rise, increases the loss of body fluids as sweat. Although hydrated and drink about two liters of water a day is recommended throughout all the year to maintain optimal health and get a good mental and physical performance, in summer the risk of dehydration is greater than ever, especially in the case of children and elderly people. Therefore health authorities recommend taking precautions. These are some of the most common recommendations:
-Drink water before the body shows the first signs of dehydration, such as thirst, dry mouth, fatigue or headache. It is preferable to anticipate these effects due to a water deficit.
-Provide water coolers and drinking water fountains nearby. Both in the workplace or at leisure, it is important to identify where you have access to water. It is very common that public places or workplaces have bottled water dispensers or water coolers connected to the main (POU, Point of Use Water Coolers).
- Check that the water is potable and is disinfected to make it fit for human consumption. Thus, for example is recommended sanitizing drinking fountain and water coolers at least once a year and change the filters.
- Prioritize the water before the sugary sodas and avoid alcoholic beverages. The juices or iced, very palatable in summer, can complete the hydration, but should not replace necessary water intake which is accessed through water sources. Proof of this is the more likely to have drinking water fountains in schools that avoid the consumption of sugary drinks by students.
- Drinking water is essential for physical recovery after athletic exertion level, especially in summer. For this reason, it is increasingly common to see in gyms and sports centers drinking water fountains and water coolers.
Keep in mind that in certain periods of life, such as growth, lactation or older, water intake should be increased, since the greater the risk of dehydration.
