Our latest product, Rally + Recover, is our flagship oral hydration drink, an extreme electrolyte beverage that provides your body with critical vitamins and minerals to feel and perform your best each and every day; primarily encouraged during strenuous endurance-based activities.
The importance of hydration, and more specifically, the avoidance of dehydration, can’t be overlooked, no matter if you’re a regular Joe or Jane OR if you’re on active duty along the front lines of combat.
In this article, we seek to detail key examples of dehydration, providing you with the necessary information required to understand the true importance of hydration whether you’re on deployment or in the weight room!
Reasons for Prioritizing Hydration
We all understand the necessity of water intake, both for our general health and risk aversion as well as for performance and energy production. However, too often, we confuse hydration with water intake exclusively.
It needs to be understood, however, that hydration isn’t achieved solely through water intake (though it is a necessary first step)… Instead, it requires optimizing key vitamin and mineral intake through electrolyte supplementation; and no, we’re not talking about the sugar-packed Gatorade beverages!
Failure to consume sufficient amounts of vitamins, minerals, sodium, potassium, and of course, water, will only result in impaired physical and cognitive performance. More specifically, it will increase the risk of extreme fatigue via dehydration, muscle cramps, infection, and even impaired organ function.
Whether in active combat or in the gym, these consequences are detrimental and must be avoided at all costs…
On the contrary, by prioritizing hydration, not only do you reduce the risk of these consequences from occurring but you become all-but-bulletproof in the face of adversity.
Below is a summary of the many benefits of optimal hydration:
- Regulates body temperature
- Lubricates joints
- Defends against infection
- Allows for optimal nutrient delivery
- Promotes optimal organ function
- Increases energy and focus
- Boosts athletic performance
- Improves endurance
- And more!
