Hydration: water, that great unknown

At the height of summer, hydration becomes crucial to maintaining a healthy balance in our bodies.As we strive to protect ourselves from the heat and sun, we often overlook the great importance of cellular hydration.

Today at epixlife, we'll explore: Why cellular hydration is essential, especially during the summer months?We will discover how water plays a vital role, not only in the functioning of our body but also in our epigenetic modulators and how we can ensure that we stay properly hydrated at all times.

Water and its vital functions in the body

Water is an essential component of our body and is involved in numerous vital functions. Not only does it represent approximately 60% of our body weight, but it also plays a fundamental role in:

  • Regulation of body temperature

  • The transport of nutrients and the elimination of toxins.

Without a proper balance of water, our body cannot function optimally.

Importance of cellular hydration in summer

In the summer months, temperature regulation to higher heat and sun exposure increases, which can lead to more water loss through perspiration.Proper cellular hydration becomes even more essential during this period to prevent dehydration and maintain the proper functioning of our bodily systems.When our cells are hydrated, our metabolic, circulatory, digestive and immune functions benefit, which helps us fight the heat and keep our body in balance.

Skin protection and prevention of premature aging

Proper hydration also plays a crucial role in the health and appearance of our skin.Dehydrated skin becomes more prone to dryness, irritation, and premature wrinkling.By keeping our skin cells hydrated, we can improve skin elasticity, smoothness, radiance, and prevent premature aging.During the summer, when we are most exposed to the sun, adequate hydration can help protect our skin from the damaging effects of UV rays and keep it radiant.

Improvement of physical and mental performance

Optimal hydration is also essential for physical and mental performance. Lack of water can negatively affect our stamina, muscle strength, and cognitive ability.When we are well hydrated, our muscles and joints work more efficiently, allowing us to stay active and perform physical activities with greater ease.In addition, water helps maintain the balance of electrolytes in our brain, improving concentration, mental clarity, and the ability to make decisions.

Tips for optimal cellular hydration

At epixlife, we know the importance of an organism in balance! For this reason, we will give you 9 tips so that this summer, and throughout the year, you can hydrate optimally and optimize your body.

1.-Drink enough quality water: make sure you drink water throughout the day, and more if you are exposed to heat or if you do intense physical activity.

2.- Eat hydrating foods: in addition to drinking water, incorporate foods rich in water into your diet, such as watermelon, cucumber, melon and lettuce, which will help you maintain an adequate level of hydration.

3.- Avoid excessive consumption of alcohol and caffeine: these substances can have a dehydrating effect on the body, so moderate your intake and compensate by drinking additional water.

4.- Carry a glass water bottle with you: always have a bottle of water handy to stay hydrated while on the go or during outdoor activities.

5.- Listen to your body: pay attention to your body's thirst signals and respond by drinking water. Do not wait until you feel thirsty to hydrate, this indicates that, to some extent, you are already dehydrated.

6.- Opt for highly mineralized water: highly mineralized water contains essential minerals that contribute to more effective cellular hydration. Look for quality mineral water options that are rich in minerals beneficial to your body.

7.- Say goodbye to plastic: plastic bottles can release up to 22,000 harmful chemicals into the water, while glass bottles are safer and more environmentally friendly.

Epigenetics and hydration

It is important to highlight that cellular hydration not only has an impact on the general functioning of our body, but also on our epigenetic modulators.Proper hydration can support the DNA methylation process and the modification of histones, providing significant consequences for our health and well-being.

By keeping our cells hydrated, we are providing the right environment for our epigenetic modulators to function optimally. Contributing beneficial effects in the regulation of genes related to cellular health, aging, inflammation and many other key biological functions.In short, by prioritizing correct hydration, we are not only taking care of our physical well-being, but also establishing the bases for optimal cellular functioning.Let's keep our cells hydrated and give our body the care it deserves for a balanced life full of well-being!
