Staying hydrated all summer long is so important. With the temperatures rises our bodies are constantly adjusting in order to stay cool and staying hydrated is is one major way to do so. Water is life, cliche but it is. Our bodies are made up of 75% water, almost all the functions within the body needs water in order to operate efficiently. Being hydrated keeps our cells clean, energized, and efficient. Here are five staples outside of water itself that are sure to help you stay hydrated all summer long.

If that wasn’t enough to convince you then guess what?!…..It is rich in antioxidants…definitely a must have.

3. Watermelon

Water melon has a water content of 91.5%. Everyone in the world must has eaten water melon before and I know you would agree with me when I say it’s soooo juicy like you’d bite into it and the juice would start to run down your hand. It is beyond refreshing, contains antioxidants and can be eaten anyway you like.

4. Coconut Water
