It happens to all of us. Either during a workout or during intense activities or even just while walking around on a hot day.
The human body performs best when its temperature is about 98.6ºF but when your body gets hotter than that, your brain doesn't like it — it wants your body to stay cool and comfortable - so the part of your brain that controls body temperature sends a message to your body, telling it to sweat.
Sweat is the process of the body cooling itself down, and if you're sweating a lot on a hot day or during intense activities you could be losing much more water in addition to losing vital minerals and nutrients - speeding up the process that leads to dehydration.
The good news is that sweat can also be looked as a physical indicator to start hydrating and keeping dehydration from taking place. At the point that the body starts to sweat, you should begin to put fluids back in your body by drinking plenty of water in addition to electrolytes found in health sports drinks like HDX Hydration Mix in order to avoid becoming dehydrated.
"Many people wait too long to hydrate and rely on the symptoms like headaches, dry mouth, fatigue or dark urine before they hydrate but sweat is the bodies way of giving us a physical alert." Said Stu White from HDX Fit. "Once we start to sweat, that should be your signal to start hydrating immediately and not wait for symptoms of dehydration to take place."
