Summer brings lazy days at the beach, hiking trips and gives everyone the opportunity to exercise outdoors. Whether you’re an athlete keeping fit by running or simply soaking up the sun, it’s important to know how to stay hydrated.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that nearly 6,000 people were treated in emergency rooms for heat-related illnesses related to sports and exercise from 2001 to 2009. Dehydration is one reason for these visits, and it’s preventable by making sure fluids are readily available to drink.
Many people are surprised to learn that milk — including chocolate milk — can help you hydrate after exercise, plus lowfat chocolate milk has the right protein to carb ratio to help you recover after a tough workout. In fact, drinking lowfat or whole milk after exercise could restore and maintain hydration better than other popular post-exercise beverages, including water, according to one study. Researchers suggest it’s due to milk’s electrolyte content and energy density.
When you think about how to stay hydrated this summer, reach for a glass of fresh Holly’s milk. It is one of the original hydration beverages — fresh and available in over 50 outlets like Landmark Supermarket Makati and Trinoma, Landers Superstore, S&R, Alabang Country Club, Inc., and The palms Country Club.
