According to WebMD dry mouth, reduced urine input and or dark yellow urine, sticky saliva and increased thirst are all early signs of dehydration.
In society today, most individuals have become so out of touch with our bodies that we tend to feel hungry when in actual fact we are thirsty, for this reason we recommend that when you feel hungry you drink a glass of water as you may just be thirsty.
Sufficient water intake daily is critical and extra water should be consumed on days where you are partaking in physical activity, perspiring a more than usual and on hot days, doing this may ensure that you prevent dehydration.
Water intake is obviously individual dependant and relates to size, activity level and numerous other aspects, we recommend that you try and consume at least 1 litre per every 25kg of body weight, for example a person who weighs 50 kg should consume at least 2 litres of water per day.
To make hydration simpler we recommend that you ensure that you carry water bottle with you wherever you go, this may include journeys in your car, while at work, while outdoors and running errands or working around the house, ensuring you have water at hand may ensure that you are continuously drinking.
In addition to the above mentioned we recommend that if you are partaking in physical activity or sweeting more than usual or if it is hot you should aim to drink more water.
