Getting Ready for Summer – Inside Out
They say that truly beautiful people have that inner glow – regardless of their physical appearance. And with summer already here, we want you to maintain your inner healthy glow. One of the most important aspects of getting ready for summer, and maintaining health when it’s hot outside, is staying hydrated.
Keeping your hydration level up is essential for your entire body to function properly, especially during the sweltering summer months; when you are sweating off much of the fluids in your body. Fluids are what carry nutrients to cells, flush bacteria out of your system, and prevent not-so-fun things like your system getting backed up. So, make sure you are staying hydrated while having fun in the sun!
There are 3 main reasons that keeping yourself hydrated is important for the functioning of your body as a whole:
- Hydration is Essential for Heart Health
Your heart is one of the most important organs in your body! It pumps blood through your entire system! According to John Batson, M.D., staying well hydrated makes it so your heart doesn’t have to work as hard! Keeping hydrated puts a lot of ease on the heart, making it do its job much more effectively.
- Hydration for the Brain
Do you ever feel dizzy or foggy when you haven’t had enough water? That is a very common sign of dehydration! Research has shown that not having enough fluids in your system can affect the amount of oxygen that gets to your brain. This is what causes the dizziness and fogginess. Make sure you are keeping yourself hydrated to keep your brain quick and sharp!
At Youngevity, we know how critical heart and brain health are to a healthy body; helping you achieve that inner glow of health – we have developed a special Healthy Body Brain and Heart Pak™. Each pack provides broad spectrum foundation nutrition including Beyond Tangy Tangerine®, Ultimate EFA PLUS™, Beyond Osteo-fx™, Ultimate EFA™ and Ultimate™ Selenium.
- Your Skin Requires Hydration to Stay Alive and Well
Different from the dry skin which is caused by harsh soaps, sufficient hydration won’t necessarily prevent dry skin, but it will affect its elasticity. Without enough elasticity, your skin is more prone to stretch marks, scarring, and potentially wrinkles! Make sure to keep your skin alive and well by drinking plenty of fluids.
Additional to fluid intake, there is an array of Youngevity personal care products to help with targeted hydration of skin and scalp. Jojoba, amino acids, essential oils, vitamins C and E are some of the elements all skillfully formulated in Youngevity’s Botanical Spa Collection, which includes products for hair, face, and body.
Whether it’s a bbq with family and friends, a day at the beach, boating on a mountain lake or participating in your favorite sport of the season – remember it’s hot out there! We want you to stay healthy and hydrated all summer long.
