by Andrew Ciccone October 03, 2018

Nothing is better than a tall glass of water to stay hydrated, that said there are plenty of ways to keep hydrated. Water has many benefits beyond keeping your hydrated, it improves your skin's complexion and keeps your muscles hydrated. Water also helps elevate your mood.

Half of our bodies are made up of water—from regulating body temperature to removing waste from our bodies, to lubricating joints and carrying oxygen to the cells. When you feel weak, fatigued, dizzy and moody most likely you’re dehydrated.

Beyond infusing drinking water with fruits, try some water-rich foods to keep your body’s water balance. Here are the top ten alternative foods to keep your body hydrated:

One. it’s no surprise to many that watermelon is mostly water, in fact 92 percent is water! This water fruit is ideal for hydration due to the natural vitamin A and C, salt, calcium, potassium and magnesium.

Two. Celery stalks are about 95 percent water, high in fiber and rich in minerals including potassium and vitamin K.

Three. Cucumbers are 96 percent water and have no saturated fat or cholesterol. They are also very high in vitamin K, vitamin B6 and iron.

Shower yourself in love. Our Sprite High Output HOB-CM-A All Brass Chrome Shower Filter has great polished chrome finish, solid brass construction and water saving 2.5 GPM shower head removes nasty toxins (rotten egg smell) and even scale from your shower water.

Four. Strawberries are perfect for staying hydrated. They are loaded with fiber and vitamin C and are 92 percent water.

Five. Lettuce --  Iceberg, butterhead, romaine and spinach are all 96 percent water and excellent choices to keep hydrated.

Six. Eggplant is high in fiber and water and low in calories. Drink it up.  

Seven. Smoothies are a great way to enjoy a nutritionally-packed glass of goodness. Fruits are loaded with wonderful vitamins and lots of water.

Eight. Unsweetened, natural applesauce has lots of water and it’s real good for you.

Nine. Coconut water is low in carbohydrates and rich in potassium. And its unsweetened varieties can be very hydrating.

Ten. With 95 percent water by weight, Zucchini is one of the most hydrating vegetables you can eat. A healthy serving has less than 25 calories and is an excellent source of folate, potassium, and vitamins A and C.

No matter how you quench your thirst, make sure you you feel hydrated. Drink lots of water with foods that high high water content.  Common signs of dehydration include fatigue, headaches, nausea and dizziness.

While exercising drink before, during and after your workout.  The American College of Sports Medicine recommends 16 to 20 ounces at least four hours before exercise and three to eight ounces every 15 minutes during exercise.

Hydration is not about how much water you drink, but how much water in the form of fresh fruits and vegetables you consume to keep your body hydrated. Remember, water is life.
