Beat The Heat, Hydrate & Repeat! Posted on 06 Sep 13:09
Most of us love being outdoors on a nice summer day. From trips to the beach, to hiking in the woods, and everything in between. It's nice to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, whats not so nice is the heat that comes along with it! Heat that can make us feel tired and worn down, and even make us sweat enough to deplete our bodies of essential mineral electrolytes.
Luckily mother nature provides ways to stay cool and beat the heat naturally! I will cover various simple, but effective ways to beat the heat while outdoors. As well as natural ways to rehydrate and replenish your body after a long hot day! So, lets get to it!
Of these natural ways mother nature provides for us to beat the heat. There is one simple, time tested method. That is to find some shade! While there are plenty of activities to have fun in the sun, there are also plenty of things to do under the protection of some shade trees!
From fun games in the park, to hiking nature trails. Mother nature has grown beautiful, vibrant trees. Whose leaves and branches provide a blanket of protection from the suns draining uv rays. Not only do these trees provide shade and help keep us cool, but they produce oxygen which is essential for all life.
That is why here at Organic Muscle we are dedicated to working with "Trees For The Future" and we plant a tree for every unit sold! Just one way we can help give back to mother nature and help protect the environment which protects us and provides for us.
So, tress are cool and all, but sometimes you just want to be out in the sunshine. What does mother nature have to help us stay cool under the heat of the sun?
The answer can be found with one look at our planet. That is the abundance of water that we have here! From the rivers, lakes, and streams to the oceans and seas. There is water everywhere!
By taking the family to the beach, kayaking down a river, or jet-skiing out on a lake. You can be sure to stay cool with mother natures wonderful waters!
While using mother natures natural methods to stay cool is a great idea, ensuring that you are maintaining proper hydration is very important as well! There are many plants and minerals that the earth provides for us to replenish ourselves and rehydrate after a long day out in the heat.
These resources can be found all over, in all sorts of places. From mountain caves to fruit trees, mother nature provides everything we need to maintain our bodies, replenish ourselves and beat the heat!
Deep in the Himalayan Mountains lies a substance mined for its taste and used as a seasoning. Himalayan Pink Salt is not only a great addition to just about any dish you make, but it is a great way to add trace minerals back into your body that can be depleted from sweating out in the heat.
The trace minerals found in Himalayan pink salt include boron, chromium, copper, fluoride, iodine, manganese, molybdenum, selenium and zinc. Other minerals in Himalayan salt include aluminum, carbon, platinum, selenium, sulfur and titanium. Not to mention the sodium it has, which is also lost when you sweat.
It doesn't stop there! One of mother natures best plant providers also helps out when it comes to hydration! That plant powerhouse is none other than the coconut! This fruit from the palm tree family has a hollow hard outer shell to which the coconut "meat" is connected on the inside. Inside that shell is a liquid substance referred to as "coconut water".
Coconut water is a hydration hero! It is packed full of simple sugars, electrolytes, and minerals to replenish dehydration conditions inside the human body caused by sweating out in the heat. This liquid has a better composition of minerals like calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, and zinc than some of the fruit juices like orange juice!
Coconut water also carries a good amount of electrolyte potassium. 100 ml of water has 250 mg of potassium and 105 mg of sodium. Together, these electrolytes help replenish electrolyte deficiency in the body. This is why coconut water is such an important tool to naturally replenisher and rehydrate the body!
Natural replenishing minerals and foods like the Himalayan Pink salt and coconut water are great ways to hydrate after being out in the heat on there own, but together is where they can truly shine! This is why Organic Muscle has developed the worlds first all natural, non-gmo, plant based, organic replenisher featuring these important ingredients.
The "Organic Replenisher" is watermelon flavored and packed with the electrolytes and minerals you need to replenish, recover and rehydrate. The ingredients like the freeze dried coconut water are sourced from organic, eco-friendly farms right here in the USA!
This is a great supplement to help you out after a hard workout in the gym, a long run, or just after a long day having fun in the sun! Because it is all natural, containing no harmful chemicals and preservatives, its safe for the whole family!
So, get outside, beat the heat, hydrate and repeat!
