So, we recently talked about the symptoms that young healthy women experience because of dehydration, but what about the dehydration symptoms found in men?
The Difference Between Men and Women
The clinical trials that we mentioned in our last blog post were carried out on both men and women, but the results were published separately. Interestingly, the men in this fascinating study showed several similarities to the womenâ€™s study, but also a couple of surprising differences.
Just like in the womenâ€™s clinical test conditions, the men were young, healthy and fairly active. The test results of mildly dehydrated males were compared to the results of fully hydrated test subjects.
Be honestâ€¦have you been a little snappy with anyone lately?Â Maybe you felt your patience being stretched a little bit or you felt as though you canâ€™t concentrate on an important task? Dehydration in women is a big problem!
Mood Control and Mental Focus
If youâ€™ve encountered low-key symptoms relating to your mood or cognitive abilities, you could try drinking a little more water –Â particularly hydrogen-rich alkaline water from Tyent water ionizers.
A fascinating study from the University of Connecticut Human Performance LaboratoryÂ found that even mild dehydration causes headaches, lack of mental focus, and the ability to control our mood.
“Our thirst sensation doesnâ€™t really appear until we are 1% or 2% …
Most of us know how it feels to become temporarily thirsty, and then slaking that thirst with a long, cool drink that restores our bodies to a healthily hydrated state again. Â This common type of dehydration is known as temporary dehydration.
Thirst Doesnâ€™t Come First
Itâ€™s worth noting that although weâ€™re sometimes guilty of waiting until we feel thirsty to drink, thirst isnâ€™t one of the early warning signs of dehydration. Â By the time we feel thirsty, our bodies are already experiencing other signs of dehydration, such as needing to urinate less and having a dry or sticky mouth. Â
Chronic dehydration is more serious. Â Known to occur as a result …
Donâ€™t even think about hitting the beach or lakeside this summer without making sure you have the essentials.Â In sun-soaked Australia, a popular health campaign recommended that people should “Slip, Slop, Slap.”Â In other words: “Slip on a shirt, slop on the sunscreen and slap on a hat.”Â
Sun Safety and Water Ionizers
That original advice has now been extended to “Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek, Slide.” Â The last two additions prompt us to seek out shade and slide on some sunglasses as well, to make sure we stay safe in the sun.Â Itâ€™s great advice!Â While the sun can equal lots of fun and …

Did you know that there were an estimated 1,134,400 firefighters in America in 2014 (U.S. Fire Administration), working on either a voluntary or career basis?Â As we head into the holiday season, and we hope for a peaceful time with our families, itâ€™s really worth reflecting for a moment on the dedication of the men and women who form such a vital part of our emergency services.
How can Tyent alkaline water help firefighters?Â What benefits could a firefighter expect to see and how might it help them tackle their challenging and demanding job?
Hydration is among the most important factors pertaining to athletic performance, whether you are a professional athlete or weekend warrior.
For various reasons, Tyent alkaline water is the perfect thirst quencher for athletes everywhere because of the superior hydration that alkaline water offers. That fact is something that Tyent customer and avid martial artist Rob Pientak knows and professes to the world.
Hydration, Working Out, and Alkaline Water
During physical exertion, water is used by the body in countless ways. Most obviously, the body uses water as a cooling mechanism to prevent overheating by sweating through the skin. However, water is also aiding in muscle contraction, helping to digest foods in the stomach, and transporting nutrients through the blood.…
We receive loads of questions every week here at Tyent. Some people want to know more specifics about ionized alkaline water. Others have questions about the water they drink and wonder if Tyent Water is any better or if a Tyent machine can clean up their water. Today, we have two questions that need answering and so letâ€™s get right to them.
Is Ionized Alkaline Water Hard or Soft?
Good question.Â Letâ€™s define first what soft water is:
Soft Water â€“ water that contains little or no dissolved salts from minerals such as calcium, magnesium, & iron.Â Often created by processes of distillation, reverse osmosis, or the addition of a chemical softener
This particular question is one of many along those same lines.Â People want to know how alkaline water from a water ionizer can be more hydrating than tap water.
Re-hydrate withÂ Your Water Ionizer
First, letâ€™s define hydration:Â the introduction of additional fluid into the body.
The adult human body is composed of up to 60% water.Â When we consume liquid we are hydrating the body.Â However, not all hydration is created equal.Â Drink some water with salt in it and you can get dehydrated.Â Other drinks, such as sodas, contain so much sugar they override the benefits of any hydration.Â Alcohol is another liquid but it dehydrates the body …
With Halloween just ahead, everywhere we turn we are besieged by images of witches, warlocks, ghosts, goblins, vampires, and zombies.Â If you are one of the ghosts, you can stop reading right now because you donâ€™t need water.Â Any water. Â Vampires have their own source of hydration, of course.Â
However, itâ€™s a bit different when youâ€™re a zombie.Â Zombies, while creepy and semi-gone, still walk the Earth.Â In fact, I donâ€™t recall ever seeing one drive.Â So if youâ€™re walking around terrorizing people, even in a semi-conscious state (been there), you are burning energy and need to stay hydrated.Â
Reasons to Drink Alkaline Water from a Water IonizerÂ
One of the many wonderful features and benefits of owning a water ionizer from Tyent is that you have access to both sides of this fantastic machine.Â
â€śA machine with two sides?â€ť You may ask.Â The answer is yes.Â Tyent water ionizersÂ have two sides to their personality.Â While one side provides you and your family with the purest, mineral-rich ionized water with a high pH level (thatâ€™s good), the other side of this multi-functional machine is there to do the dirty work with strong acidic and astringent properties (thatâ€™s badâ€¦for dirt and germs).
Why Have aÂ Water Ionizer that Makes Acidic Water Too?
