We hear a lot about the importance of drinking enough water in a day and it’s for good reason. The majority of us are walking around chronically dehydrated. Some signs include:
- Muscle cramps
- Joint pain
Reducing the likelihood of a migraine
While it may not be the only cause of a migraine, being dehydrated can certainly contribute to our vulnerability to an attack. But being properly hydrated isn’t just about how much you drink, as it is what you drink.
What helps hydrate our cells?
We want to ensure that the water gets inside the cells where it’s most needed and not just passing through our body without receiving the benefits. What helps water get inside your cells to maximize your hydration? This summer, try adding one of the following to your next glass of water.
- A squeeze of citrus such as lemon or lime
- Pinch of salt
- Clean electrolyte boost
When was your last migraine check-up?
