View Full Version : when you can't seem to hydrate....

It's only just afternoon, I've already had about 10 cups of water and I can't seem to get hydrated?
Any ideas? My mouth feels dry and parched.....

soak some chia seeds and then eat them! they are very very very hydrating!

If your body's balance of electrolytes is out of whack, water will mostly pass through you unabsorbed. Eat or drink something high in potassium, calcium, and magnesium -- such as bananas blended with celery, or coconut water (nature's Gatorade!) :) Once your mineral balance is normal, it will be much much easier to get hydrated.

More minerals as mentioned above.
Lots of celery juice....like one or more bunches a day.
You can add a little powdered seaweed to your water.
This doesn't sound right.. but it works for me: A teaspoon of raw apple cider vinegar in 8 ounces of water....I luv it. I use this one post workout bc it also helps to flush the acids created by the exercise.

It could be a sign of blood sugar imbalance/intolerance, or diabetes/pre-diabetes. Go for more greens and less sweet fruit; especially avoid wheat (even sprouted). Add lemon and stevia to your water too if you like it.

Even a little salt in a glass of water will help.

I have that happen all the time. Mainly because I sometimes go too long with enough water and then it takes awhile for my body to catch up. Juices and/or coconut water can help speed things up.
Coconut water - fresh from a Thai coconut. I try to drink it after workouts. Its amazing how hydrating it is.

Definitely try the celery and coconut water. If that doesn't help, consider seeing a health professional. Diabetes is serious.
Not to be rude, but were you hungover? Does this happen a lot? Did you eat something unusual for you?
Sometimes if I eat something I'm sensitive too my thirst level changes.
