Here Comes the Heat! 

Keeping yourself hydrated under hot weather conditions is very important to avoid heat-related illness. Proper hydration becomes even more important when performing strenuous, physical activity in high temperatures. The more your body sweats under such conditions, the more fluid you need to replace. If you ever suffer from dehydration in hot weather, you are subjecting yourself to the following health risks:

  • Heat stroke
  • Heat exhaustion
  • Heat cramps
  • Heat rash

Here are 10 ways you can stay hydrated in hot weather to avoid heat realted illness: CLICK HERE  to learn these  important tips!
