Most people are not aware that they are dehydrated. When we are dehydrated, our brains don't function as well, our organs aren't able to dump toxins and we feel more tired. What most people are unaware of is how drinking fresh clean water, at room temperature helps sexual function.
For women, without enough water, vaginal lubrication can be difficult. Without natural lubrication, sex can be painful. Water keeps our mouth fresh, our bodies from becoming toxic, and helps combat fatigue between the sheets.
Caffeine beverages dehydrate the body. Each soda we consume means we are putting our body in a deficit. With continued and long-term dehydration skin becomes lack lustre, our eyes don't work as well and we feel intensely fatigued. Most people don't even recognize their craving for water. As over time, thirst, which is a natural sign to drink more water is replaced with feelings of hunger. Many people eat when what their body really needs is water.
The more vigorous your bedroom workout is, the more water you will need. When we sweat, cry or ejaculate, water is needed to replace precious fluids lost. Depending on whether you have been in a deficit for a longer or short time, changes your symptoms.
Following are signs of dehydration - okay there are more than 3:
- Headache. This one is often misconstrued and many reach for a pain reliever instead of several big glasses of water. You might experience this early in the day, or even when you wake up. Have a big glass of water BEFORE your coffee, which will dehydrate you even more.
- Dry mouth
- Flushed face
- Aggravation and depression
- Deep golden urine, which can sometimes be malodorous
- Chapped lips. The ones on your face, not elsewhere, silly!
The key is to drink water daily. How much? At least 8 - eight ounce glasses of room temperature water. Putting ice in your water, causes your body to have to heat it up to 98 degrees and can cause your body shock, weakening the immune system. Remember how being in cold temperatures can cause you to come down with a virus, ice cold water is like subjecting your body to ice cold outdoor temperatures, every time you consume it. Room temperature water is always best.
