What the video below shows is that when a body is hydrated, there's enough water mixed in with the blood to allow for minerals and nutrients to be carried throughout the body. This smooth flow helps our bodies to function, and in athletes, proper hydration is key to performance and recovery.
When the body is dehydrated (higher blood viscosity), and there's less water mixed in with our blood, minerals and nutrients struggle to flow causing problems like cramping, fatigue and loss of the ability to focus.
The tube on the left is an example of a well hydrated body (lower blood viscosity) with the bearing flowing smoothly and the tube to the right is a dehydrated one with the bearing moving much slower. When the body is dehydrated, there is a lot of strain within the body and that's where the symptoms start to present themselves.
In addition, a 2% drop in dehydration can result in a 10% drop in both physical and mental performance.
Healthy hydration is essential for the body, and even more so for athletes and those that lead active lifestyles. Over time, a failure to hydrate properly and replenish minerals and nutrients lost during training or competition can contribute to a wide array of performance complications including fatigue, headache, ability to focus, muscle cramping and the body's ability to recover faster.
The human body can survive without food for up to 3 weeks but can only survive without water for 7 days. This fact highlights the importance of hydration and athletes that push themselves during training and competition require performance hydration like HDX.
