What to drink to stay hydrated
Water is the most efficient drink to stay hydrated but our consumption is diversified, very often for the pleasure of our palate. All the drinks do the job except stronger alcoholic drinks like wines and spirits.
common water (tap or in bottled) is energy free and provides small amounts of calcium, sodium and magnesium. If mainly composed from water, other drinks like teas and coffees, soft drinks, juices are richer. Additional compounds like sugar, vitamins, fibers, and polyphenols may affect your health in good or bad way.
Caffeine is a polyphenol found in coffee and tea. It is often added to energy drink for being a stimulant. It has little diuretic effects that do not have significant effect on the body (out of pregnancy).
Sugar is the most harmful constituent. First, from the moment the drinks reach our mouth, it generates a bacteria activity, which increases acidity and weakens our dental system. Secondly, sugar is potential energy; it needs to be transformed through efforts afterwards. Thus consumption of sugar should be moderate according the needs.
Past years have shown the rise of sport drinks. These are design for a better water intake thanks to sodium concentration so the body quickly recovers its equilibrium. Also carbohydrates are added for energy. All others compounds have lower impact on the hydration.
