Drink Only when Thirsty!!

According to new recommendations  published in the clinical journal of sports medicine,aggressive drinking of fluids to prevent dehydration is unnecessary and carries with it, a greater risk.

Excessive fluid consumption can weaken the kidney’s ability to excrete the excess water, sodium in the body gets diluted and exercise associated hyponatremia(EAH) is also caused.

Using the innate thirst mechanism to guide fluid consumption is a strategy that should limit drinking in excess and developing EAH while providing sufficient fluid intake to prevent dehydration.
