Why Hydration is Essential for Working Out
- by amino VITAL
We all know the importance of staying hydrated. We have all been told it in one form or the other, and it rings especially true while we work out. But the science behind hydration and why it is so integral to performance while we work out can be helpful to know, so we can understand how (and why) hydration is so crucial to our workout.
What Water Does
Water does a ton while we work out. With our body composed of almost 60% water, it is an important step to make sure we keep replenishing our body with water, especially while we lose it during a rigorous workout. When we lose fluid while working out, our performance inherently falters, and several side effects can occur as a result. Fatigue can set in much more quickly. Our body temperature and heart rate both can rise. And, of course, dehydration is always a serious risk for those who may be under hydrated during athletic performance, and with that comes the risk of dizziness or fainting, among other bodily responses. In short, water keeps us moving at the level our workouts, and even our everyday tasks, demand.
How to Hydrate
The question of how to stay hydrated is always difficult. With so many options for sports drinks and supplements, it can be hard to figure out which is right for you. aminoVITAL’s Action pack is our go-to during workouts because of the essential nutrients and the ease of usage that it provides. All you need is to pour a pack into your water before your workout, and drink throughout your training. Our Action pack has over a dozen crucial vitamins and nutrients for your body, including Vitamin C, Malic Acid, Arginine, and Glutamine, among so many more. In addition to making sure you are adequately supplemented with the essential nutrients your body needs to work out, you should also make sure to drink plenty of water before working out to prime your body for performance, as well as after working out to aid in the body’s recovery -- and our Recovery pack can help you fend off muscle soreness and get you back to performance in no time.
Water and Action is all you need, but you may be wondering why water is the ideal way to recoup your fluid loss. Sports drinks can contain high levels of sugar that do not coincide with the workout that you may be doing -- and even if you’re doing strenuous activity, there is nothing that a higher quantity of water can’t help with. Water is key for delivering nutrients all over your body for performance, and with zero sugar but all the nutrients you need for your next workout, Action will help your body perform at its absolute peak.
Hydration in Moderation
It is also important not to over hydrate while working out. Too much water can lead to a lack of sodium in your body, which, in turn, can be extremely harmful, especially when performing difficult physical activity. Using an aminoVITAL supplement while drinking your water is a great way to stay hydrated and fully charged with electrolytes. Drink when you’re thirsty, drink while you’re sweating, but be mindful not to overdo it before and during your workouts.
As a whole, it is always a great idea to maintain an adequate level of hydration, and that is especially so when you are in the process of a workout. With aminoVITAL and its excellent nutrients, you have the ideal supplement for any level of physical activity.
