Over the next few days I am going to share with you 10 signs that you need more hydration, from an article I read by James Colquhoun, filmmaker of Food Matters and Hungry for Change and founder of FMTV. See his full profile here.
Some of these signs won’t be new to you, but there are a few surprises in there as well.
Signs you need more hydration
Muscles start cramping
Adequate hydration and electrolyte balance is essential for proper muscle and contraction. When you’re dehydrated, your electrolyte balance is affected. When sodium and potassium stores are low, you can end up with painful muscle spasms! If fluid levels are low, a muscle or even just a section of muscle can contract or spasm involuntarily. Hydrating can help prevent continued cramping, so drink up.
