“It’s getting hot in here, so hot!” is the intro line to rapper Nelly’s 2002 hit song “Hot in Herre.” And yes, that’s actually how it is spelled.
Although Nelly goes on to suggest removing one’s clothes as a way to cool off, Tyent USA advises adequate hydration when heat becomes a pressing issue.
Why Hydrate With Alkaline Water?
Alkaline water is a superior source of hydration because it is antioxidant and hydrogen rich and it can be used by the body quickly due to faster gastric emptying. Under heat stress, fluids that are efficient and serve multiple purposes are of the greatest value. Tyent alkaline water fulfills both of those requirements.
Advantages of Alkaline Water:
- Faster Gastric Emptying
- Neutralizes Free Radicals
- Zero Calories
- Tastes Great
- Inexpensive and Renewable
- Transportable in Tyent GoodLife Water Bottles
How Much Alkaline Water Do I Need Per Day?
Conventional wisdom says that eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day is enough to keep one well hydrated. But, when the temperature increases, daily water requirements also increase. On her website, fitness guru Jillian Michaels has this to say about hydration requirements in warm weather:
“In hot or humid weather, you need to drink additional water to help lower your body temperature and to replace what you lose through sweating…Heated indoor air can cause your skin to lose moisture, increasing your daily fluid requirement.”
Temperature and sweating must be taken into account when hydrating and the hotter the weather, the more alkaline water your body needs.
Alkaline Water and Nelly: Keeping Humanity Cool
When the temperature rises, taking off some clothes might be your initial reaction, but hydration is equally important. Remember to drink plenty of alkaline water this summer whether you are dancing to Nelly at the club or playing at the park. When it gets “Hot in Herre” Tyent alkaline water ionizers are at their very best.
