Developed by an ER doctor, BANa capitalizes on the scientifically proven hydrating property of sodium while also replenishing the body’s store of of electrolytes—without the calories and sugar.
In any season, proper hydration is critical to ensure your body can function at its best, but it’s especially important in the summer when temperatures soar. Without consuming the necessary fluids to keep your body hydrated, you could be at risk for dizziness, fatigue, weakness, mental confusion, low blood pressure and even more serious side effects of dehydration.
The holidays are a busy time. With all the hustle and bustle of the season, it can be easy to forget about rehydrating—and without proper hydration your body can be left weak and aching.
“Linebacker Cliff Thrift returned to Chicago yesterday after spending the night in St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa, Fla. Thrift suffered dehydration cramps on the team bus on the way to the airport after Sunday’s game and needed four quarts of intravenous solution. ‘I’m fine,’ he said. ‘Pump some beer in that IV and he’ll really be all right,’ quipped linebacker Otis Wilson.”
In an effort to avoid heat related illnesses, organizations, like the military, and individuals, such as athletes, create schedules for themselves to determine when and how much water they should drink to stay hydrated. Sadly, this act of ignoring one’s thirst mechanism and drinking as much as possible has led to many cases of acute water intoxication, putting these individuals at risk of hyponatremia and death. When this occurs, they perform at a less than optimal standard and defeat the purpose of hydrating in the first place.
