Upgrade Your Dehydration Education

When you lose an excess of fluids and electrolytes, dehydration can have negative effects on the body. With the human body being made up of mostly water, keeping a proper balance of fluids and electrolytes helps maintain mood and brain function. Some ways your body can lose fluids and become dehydrated are:

Vomiting and Diarrhea

Vomiting and diarrhea can cause a rapid loss of fluids and electrolytes.


High temperatures can cause excessive perspiration, which can lead to faster dehydration when combined with physical activity.

Natural Bodily Processes

Your body loses fluid through natural processes like breathing and urination, which is why there are recommendations for daily fluid intake to stay hydrated.

Dehydration Happens When You've Lost an Excess of Fluids and Electrolytes

3-electrolytes 3-electrolytes

Losing fluids and electrolytes through vomiting and diarrhea and excessive sweating during heat or exercise may be hard to counter through regular eating and drinking. Electrolytes are essential minerals that help carry electrical signals to power your nerves and maintain your body. That means replenishing fluids and electrolytes throughout the day is important.

Proper hydration helps maintain mood and brain function, and helps reduce fatigue. It also helps to keep skin moisturized, produces necessary body fluids (such as tears and saliva), and remove waste through sweat, urination, and stool.
