WHEN DO SYMPTOMS OF DEHYDRATION OCCUR?

WHO IS O.R.S. SUITABLE FOR?
O.R.S. sachet and O.R.S. Scoop are not only meant for athletes. Excessive sweating, vomiting, diarrhoea, fever, burns or the use of certain medicines can also lead to dehydration symptoms, especially in combination with summer temperatures. Small children (up to 2 years of age), pregnant women, the chronically ill and the elderly are at an increased risk of dehydration. Buying O.R.S. or being able to make it yourself is extremely important for this target group. Be alert and make sure you always have your O.R.S. Scoop handy!
TIPS FOR HOT WEATHER SPORTS
Besides buying and using O.R.S. bags or the O.R.S. Scoop, what else can you do as an athlete to reduce the risk of dehydration? Wear light and airy clothing that does not absorb heat unnecessarily and allows sweat to evaporate. If you suddenly encounter higher temperatures, give your body time to adjust. Acclimatisation can take up to a week. Avoid the midday heat and exercise in the morning or evening. Are you training for a tour or race? Plan the training sessions at the time of the event so that your body can get used to the (weather) conditions. The most important tip: Make your own rehydration liquid with the O.R.S. Scoop and take consistent breaks from drinking to maintain healthy hydration. When you get thirsty, you have already lost too much fluid!
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING DEHYDRATION?
If you are dehydrated you may experience symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, nausea, feeling of weakness, tingling sensations, increased heart rate, cold hands and feet, muscle cramps, decreased sweating and urination. Are you suffering from one or more symptoms? Then you may be dealing with dehydration or heat congestion. Supplement your fluids, salts and sugars immediately with O.R.S. bags or choose to make your own O.R.S. rehydration fluid with the O.R.S. Scoop from Care Plus! Drink, rest, cool your neck and forehead with ice and seek medical attention quickly.
