Summer delight | stay healthy and fresh in this dry season
About this event
There are only so many times you can say, “Just water for me, thanks,” when the waiter asks before you start to get bored. Water is a healthy and safe bet, sure — it always tastes the same (good) and you need it for hydration (better). But a zillion other healthy drinks give you the health boosts of water, plus some.
"Water is essential for hydration, but what it doesn’t contain are essential electrolytes that are the fundamental backbones of hydration," Gabrielle Mancella, a registered dietitian at Orlando Health, tells Bustle. "In order to remain hydrated, which essentially means that our water intake and outtake are balanced and we are not excreting or retaining too much fluid, we need to ensure that we are consuming electrolytes," which are found in — you guessed it! — other healthy beverages.
