Okay, we all know to drink plenty during the hotter days but not all drinks will keep you hydrated!
Symptoms of dehydration include: dry or sticky mouth, sleepiness or tiredness, dry skin, and headache.
Any drinks that contain the following will cause dehydration:
Alcohol – beer, wine, spirits, etc
Fizzy drinks – often have high levels of salt and sugar
Energy drinks – often have a high level of caffeine and salt
Tea and coffee – typical black tea and coffee with caffeine will cause dehydration – many fruit and herbal teas are OK
Milk and dairy – the Whey in milk can cause dehydration
So that’s all the fun drink off the list! But what can I drink:
fruit juice from water melon, grapefruit, and celery
