Keep on hydrating!

The summer heat can make us sweat.  Whether it be from as little as a leisurely walk outdoors or something more intense,  like participating in a grueling triathlon. Hydration is always key.

The usual methods involve intake of fluids such as water, coconut water and perhaps some sports drinks, depending on the activity.  Another, often overlooked, source of fluids are the foods we eat.
