Hydration and Electrolyte Replacement in the Winter

Hydration is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer.  Realizing that you are dehydrated when it is cold outside is more of a challenge.  We perspire underneath the layers of clothing that keep us warm in the winter.  Perspiration is absorbed by our clothing and we think we sweat only when it is hot outside.  That is so far from the truth!  When in an industrial setting in the winter months we need to be more aware of hydration.  We tend to drink less and dehydration is less obvious.  We are more prone to accidents in the workplace while operating machinery or working at a job site when we are dehydrated.  Be aware of this possibility and remember that the temperature outside is not as important as the temperature inside of your body.  To combat dehydration, look at the All Natural Sword Electrolyte Replacement products here!
