Every cell, organ and tissue in our body needs water to function – so staying hydrated day-to-day is one of the most essential things we can do.
Drinking water as well as teas and coffees and a number of other drinks (more info on which can be found here) is helpful day-to-day. However, when undertaking vigorous physical activity for over an hour and/or when hot/humid environmental conditions increase the rate of sweating, the speed of rehydration becomes important.
This is when sports drinks can play a useful role.
Our Health Improvement Lead, Dr Greg Lessons, has shared a handy guide to sports drinks, why they’re important, and some recipes for you to make your own over on MyFFC.
