Healthy hydration isn’t just about drinking water. It’s about water PLUS electrolytes.
It makes sense. You lose both water and sodium when you sweat. Both need to be replaced to prevent muscle cramps, headaches, and energy dips.
But most people only replace the water. Why? Because since the 1940s, we’ve been told to drink 8 glasses of water per day, thirsty or not.
Drinking beyond thirst is a bad idea. It dilutes blood electrolyte levels (especially sodium), which leads to headaches, low energy, cramps, confusion, or worse.
This low sodium situation (called hyponatremia) is super common among endurance athletes. The solution isn’t to stop drinking water though. It’s to drink water plus electrolytes.
