75% of people are dehydrated - So what is dehydration?

Common causes include:


Heavy sweating reduces fluid and electrolytes, which can cause mild to moderate dehydration. Did you know dehydration can impact your sports performance?


Travelers are at risk of dehydration from traveler's diarrhea and the potentially dehydrating effects of air travel.


Alcohol is a diuretic, stimulating your body to produce more urine. You’ll feel the effects when fluids and electrolytes leave your body without being replaced.


Hot weather can cause your body's core temperature to rise. This usually causes a higher sweat rate, resulting in lost fluid and electrolytes.


An elevated body temperature above 38C is often accompanied by increased sweating which leads to fluid and electrolyte loss.

Vomiting & Diarrhoea

A stomach flu or food poisoning can cause a large loss of fluid and electrolytes. The biggest risk associated with this is dehydration.

What signs should you look out for?



Flu & Cold

Dry Mouth

Vomiting & Diarrhea


Water alone doesn’t replenish lost electrolytes which help the body retain fluid and are essential for nerve and muscle function. We've all heard that we should drink 8 glasses of water a day, it's not because we lose 8 glasses of fluids, it's because not all of it is making it to the bloodstream!
