Factual Thursday: Dehydration Age Factors

Home / News / Factual Thursday: Dehydration Age Factors

7-14-16Happy Thursday, Glen Summit Spring Water fans!  Since this week is closing out with a little bit of a heat wave, we thought we would share with you some dehydration risk factors in our latest edition of Factual Thursday!

Risk factors can lead to quicker and more severe dehydration in individuals.  One commonly-known risk factor is being exposed to the sun and humidity for long periods of time.  However, did you know that age is a big variable in dehydration?  Those who are young or old are much more susceptible to dehydration than normal adults.  This is due to their bodies not being able to process water efficiently, and requiring more water to perform daily functions.  As children grow, their need for more and more water increases, and inhibiting that increase can lead to dehydration.

The simplest and most effective way to quell dehydration is to keep a constant stream of water flowing throughout your body on a daily basis.  Your goal should be to drink at least 4 bottles a day, but any quantity of water is better than no water at all.

To combat dehydration this summer, give us a call and we’ll run you over a few cases of our best spring water.  We promise it will not disappoint!
