What is The Best Sports Drink for Hydration?

It’s so simple…water!

The absolute BEST sports drink available is natural mineral water that’s oxygen-rich and alkaline.  Experts agree on the benefits of drinking mineral water. It’s one of the most powerful healing forces available. 

Just plain water helps your body maintain normal temperature, lubricates and cushions your joints, protects your spinal cord and other sensitive tissues. Your body gets rid of water through urination, perspiration and bowel movements.

Besides the standard benefits of drinking water, when you add minerals to your water several things happen that are all beneficial to your overall health.

  • Adult humans are 71% water, and our blood is 90 percent water.
  • Water is essential for the kidneys and other bodily functions.
  • When dehydrated, the skin can become more vulnerable to skin disorders and wrinkling.
  • Drinking water instead of soda can help with weight loss.

What happens to your body when you get dehydrated?

All sports take a toll on hydration.  Perspiration is the leading cause of dehydration.  At any level, hydration is vital to maintain your body and avoid serious issues that dehydration contributes to.

Common causes of dehydration include vigorous exercise, especially in hot weather; intense diarrhea; vomiting; fever or excessive sweating. Not drinking enough water during exercise or in hot weather even if you’re not exercising also may cause dehydration.

Essential minerals are critical to the human body as it cannot produce them on its own. By adding a mineral water hydration packet to your bottled or tap water you can instantly create natural mineral water that’s oxygen-rich and alkaline.

Mineral Water Hydration Packets

You might be surprised to learn that water does not contain minerals when it falls from the sky.  The minerals come from coming in contract with ground soil.  Soil depletion has been instrumental in reducing the minerals that used to be available.  The onset of water filtration systems further depletes those vital minerals your body needs.

Is there any reason not to drink mineral water?

Are there any drawbacks or side effects to drinking mineral water? Scientific research assures us that while there are many health benefits to drinking mineral water, there is no cause for concern. A pubmed article from 2009 tells us “The apprehension that there might be an undesired hypertensinogenic effect due to the sodium content in mineral waters is not justified. Sodium is present in mineral water in small amounts only, and mainly as sodium bicarbonate, which has no effect on blood pressure.”

For over 25 years Chasing Miracles, LLC has been promoting hydration at the cellular level with our Hydration Water Packs.  During that time we have witnessed some amazing stories of success with athletes and sports enthusiasts.
