Staying hydrated is very much important when you exercise. This is why health experts have always focused on the importance of water intake while working out.

Your body loses water and some amount of salt through sweat. So if you exercise regularly, you must understand the importance of drinking water because it would cause health problems if left unheeded.

The body perspires to cool itself through sweating. If neglected it can lead to health-related issues like loss of coordination, muscle fatigue, heat illness – think confusion, cramps, and exhaustion.

According to expert Nutritionist Dr. Simran Saini from Fortis Hospital, “One should have small quantities of water; that is you must take small sips of water, but avoid gulping a lot of it together. During workout, your breathing becomes shallow, so there is a chance you might choke. Preferably, add glucose to your water in order to attain the energy lost during exercise. Do not forget to sip on water every 10-15 minutes.
