Stay hydrated with these 3 simple tips: Set two or three daily water goals, not just one 2.2 liters of water is a lot if you only drink one or two during the day and then try to squeeze in the rest before bedtime. Try breaking up your daily hydration target into morning, afternoon and evening goals.

DRINK UP, FOR YOUR BODY + MIND. Water helps to improve digestion and contribute to proper metabolization of food. Our organs need water to metabolize fat, so being properly hydrated is an essential part of weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight!Do you want BETTER Performance? Dehydration can impact your performance, strength, and endurance when playing sports or exercising.

Be sure to keep these additional benefits of proper hydration top of mind: Water can help control calories. This all-natural, calorie-free beverage is an essential component of a healthy metabolism. In addition, water may reduce hunger by filling you up if consumed prior to meals.

Aim to drink 3 liters of water per day. Keep these additional tips in mind: Water is the only liquid that truly hydrates the body. Sports drinks don’t count, so drink plenty of fresh water instead. When the sugar or salt content in any food is higher than average, you will need more water to metabolize them. Well, first you have to understand that thoughts are frequencies.

Once you realize that, you realize that any thought you think affects everything and everyone in your life, not just water. To deliberately affect water with your mind, some people. Tips to conserve water in the landscape Just as water is vital for human life, the plants, trees, shrubs and grass in any landscape also require hydration. However, how much water is used and what watering strategies gardeners choose can have a direct impact on their wallets.

  • Will there be Dutch subtitles available anytime soon? That would be great for my Dutch students who need some more English practice. In Dutch there is very few good animations to be found on these topics. If you’re having difficulties finding a translator I would volunteer. Groetjes.

  • Please drink water kids it hurts if you don’t

    If you don’t you will be dizzy,have a headache, light headed, shakes knees, a lot of crying

  • I use a bladder pack on runs longer than an hour, mostly because I don’t like carrying anything in my hands. On shorter runs, a 300ml small bottle is usually enough if needed at all.

  • How many liters should we drink water, people say pimples will be removed if we drink more water bt it is not working for me,am drinking daily

  • Guess what???? I ran 6 miles today, which is the longest for me! Four of those miles were straight up running, the other two were walk/run. Thank you guys so much!!!! Your tips, kindness and humor always keep me motivated.

  • I think I need to clarify something. The kidneys do not PRODUCE aquaporins when stimulated by the antidiuretic hormone(ADH), the ADH actually triggers the BINDING of aquaporins to the walls of the collecting duct in the kidneys, and these aquaporins can actually be removed from the cell walls for more diluted urine.

  • Hi guys, I’m looking for some advice…
    In preparation for the London Marathon, I’ve managed to increase the distance of my long run over time by adding an extra mile each week to my goal distance. For example, last Sunday I ran 14 miles, and this Sunday I plan to run 15. I’m still running shorter distances and doing tempo work during the week, but allowing rest days following the long run.
    Would you say that this approach is too much, and if so what would you suggest?
    Thank you!

  • I run with an amphipod hydration belt. It has a zippered pocket and space for one bottle (but you can buy other bottles and add-ons to increase capacity). What I found interesting is that my belt places the bottle in the back in the small of the back. It doesn’t move around and doesn’t bother me back there. The one you mentioned has the bottle on the side. That would bother me more and distract me. Does it slide around as you run?

  • Anything 16k or less, I don’t bother with water on my training runs.

    1/2 marathon or more, I carry 300ml 1000ml and depending on if I’m racing/ training a faster pace I will carry 500ml energy drink + 500ml water.

    Unless it’s hot then I don’t bother running over 10k

  • What do you usually do about water while you’re out running? Let us know in the comments below, as well as any other videos you’d like to see from us.

  • This might sound a bit stupid but are you meant to stop running while you drink or drink while running? I tried to drink while running but didnt manage very well so I never drink during a run now although there are times when I feel in need of fluid.

  • Although this video goes a bit fast, it is by far one of the best and informative videos I have watched based on the skin.

    Thank you TED Ed! ����

  • I’m pretty low tech so I throw a water bottle and a banana in different pockets of an old backpack and off for my weekly half marathon. About as bad a solution as one could imagine, but at my speed, its probably as much as I need

  • This video is exactly what I need right now haha. I just got back from a 45 min run in 92 degrees F, 104 F with humidity (YAYY American south) and I didn’t take any water with me. Sooo brutal

  • I have a belt that holds two small bottles and just enough pockets for phone, keys and a little snack. I had to try it on every different height to figure out how to stop it from bouncing annoyingly, but it worked out in the end!

  • İf you locate in Istanbul, you can get rid of your Seboreic Dermatitis in just 6 weeks permanently. You can click the link and see the before and after photos and videos instantly. �� ��

  • Props to the animator, narrator and all the others who helped to make this video. I loved how everything in the video was moving like water:)

  • This is perfect timing. I’ve got the hydration packs so bladder on your back with the hose. Recently I noticed no one seems to have those now and all have the packs with 2 front pockets with collapsible water bottles. Are they better as seems the trend?

  • I`m twenty-five years old and keeping my problematic. Getting it up isn`t a problem, but my challenge is how to sustain a long lasting interaction. By following the guide given in this ED treatment, almost everything clicks and works. The treatment plan was too good to be true for me initially, but later found that it`s efficient and it stands true to its claims. Looking for this guide on Google, name of this tip is Kαylo Bacumlo
    thank you

  • I use to carry a 500ml bottle of water last year for everything from recovery training to faster training sessions to race day. This was until someone said to me “why do you carry a bottle when you run”. I explained that I like to know I have water if I need it regardless of the distance or time I am out running. The same person then said to me “but you would carry a one kilogram weight in your hand when you are running”. I didn’t really understand what this person meant by that and he then explained that you have more weight on one side than you do the other side and it completely made sense and I stopped carrying bottles. I now either use a running belt that can hold two 300ml bottles or I just run with my old college back for a couple litres of water in

  • My preference is the hydration vest. It may seem overkill sometimes, but it’s the most comfortable and least disruptive to my stride. As long as I don’t overfill it, weight isn’t an issue. I also have a minimalist belt where you can slip in a soft flask. It can be a bit bouncy, though, if the flask is filled all the way.

  • Soft flask (500ml) for two hours on a flat terrain, 2 flasks on a vest for trail running for 2 to 4 hours. And add a 1l or 2l bladder pack for more longer runs. And don’t forget isotonic or electrolites on your water too!

  • I am new to running so testing ideas out, ran with a bottle in hand but didn’t enjoy it, so I tried a bottle on the side hip attached with a belt it was OK but definitely noticed some pain on the hip so now I am now using a belt pack with two small water bottles which feels comfortable.

  • I use small polythene sandwich bags with a knot tied in each end tucked into the elasticated pockets on my shorts. It means I can distribute the water in different pockets, but I can only use them once, they don’t hold much and sometimes they leak…
    Soft flasks or bladder packs might be the way to go. Carrying water bottles in my hands leaves me with neck/shoulder/back pain for days!

  • No offense, you look way to emaciated to be considered healthy. I understand you may have cleared some health issues, I have been there. You are not healthy you just took something out of your diet. I hope you are not vegan.

  • Parents whose only solution to everything is “DRINK MORE WATER” are probably raising a glass (of water) to H2O and dunkin’ on them kids

  • This year (prior to injury) I have been running laps through and around town back to my truck where I keep water bottles stashed. I am seriously looking forward to a bladder pack tutorial and demonstration guide. As usual this video was great. Thanks for that.

  • I use a cheap Ajonjie vest with two 500mils at the front and if it’s a really long one I have a camelbak bladder to insert in the back. I wear it all year and it’s quite simply brilliant. No need for the expensive ones really!

  • Am I the only person who while driving throws water bottles out my car window at 40 miles per hour at locations I’ll run by and hope they don’t break on impact?

  • This is such a helpful video! I had been struggling with water portability and until now, I had not found the magic formula that works for me.

    But your video and the product options you mentioned are all giving me ideas and inspiration. Thank you!!

    I am now feeling excited ��

  • Hey.. Ted ed your are doing a good job by educating every one of us through your efforts. Thank you so much.. Can you please make a video on causes dandruff

  • I use the bladder pack for marathon runs, & then the waist pack for the 21km runs. Otherwise I sweat like a dog & hate water.., so I always mix it with a water enhancer or a sports hydration drink

  • Allah has created every [living] creature from water. And of them are those that move on their bellies, and of them are those that walk on two legs, and of them are those that walk on four. Allah creates what He wills. Indeed, Allah is over all things competent.
    Quran [ 24: 45 ]

  • Where I live (South China) after coming back from a long pre-dawn run, my running kit when dropped on the floor sounds like swimming gear, its really that wet! I only drink “zero” type drinks with no sugar for dental reasons. I run fasted which helps to train me to deal with the lack of sugar and I am also lighter fasted.

  • Generally any run I do up to 5 miles I don’t carry or drink water but will take a gel. Anything between 5 miles and 8 miles I take a small handheld bottle and 2 gels. If I know I’m doing over 8 miles I will take my bladder with me and multiple gels, plus electrolyte additive to the water. Works for me. Personally I think taking on water is a personal preference and everybodys physical tolerance is going to be different. I. e what works for my hydration might not work for someone else.

  • I am from south africa where in summer it goes up to 36 celcuis. I have a small 1.5 liter camelbak for 10km race i also use it on my day to day run soft flask goes nice into them. But if i go up i use my Salomon av 12 everything goes in there 4 soft flasks and gear. Tip when you go buy a vest check wat you want to use it for i run with trekking poles and they where always in the way. Practice in the heat with full gear you can get used to carrying the weight. Keep up the good work that side.

  • A perfect educational tool, even for EFL students, I’ve just shared it on my EFL blog which follows a transdisciplinary approach as well as on other media. I wish I could also be a patreon but, most unfortunately, I couldn´t afford it! Thank you so much for your precious educational work!

  • I love my Nathan brand hydration vest! It’s made with a soft fabric so I can wear it with a tank top or just a bra on a hot day and not get any skin irritation. Also it has lots of pockets! For phone, snacks, a water tank, and soft bottles

  • I always drink water but out of plastic bottles. I wanna upgrade to something better but what exactly? Some people say Kangen water but idk their instagram looks so scammy… Some got some good options?

  • Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeoeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

  • When in doubt, take water. It’s better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

    I’ve recently been using an Osprey Serial belt. I live in the southeastern US, and the summer heat isn’t much fun.

  • I carry a small spray bottle that I have some electrolytes mix in and it fits in my waist pack. Few sprits every 1km just to get rid of the dry mouth works a charm.

  • I am new to your channel but have absorbed so much knowledge I am richer because of you, and I want to say thank you. I will be sharing this episode in my social network.
    QUESTIONS about the WATER:
    1. What input do you have about rain water?
    2. Is it good restructure water with my juicing extract?
    3. Which do you personally prefer REVERSE OSMOSIS or DISTILLED water if you were going to restructure with juice such as lemon as you mentioned.

    Thanks again you ROCK!!

  • I use a Salomon Hydration vest for my longer trail runs,which also has handy pockets for carrying other things I like to have with me.

  • I’m still a noob at running with 1 year of consistent experience. This summer I got the Salomon adv skin 5 and it’s pretty sweet. Water can go on front left or right or in a bladder. I’m from Houston, Texas so any run over 20 minutes ends with me sweating a pound or two.

  • I used to use a hand held water bottle but could never get comfortable carrying it. I only use a hydration backpack nowadays but like the idea of waist belt. Did the bottle ever fall out while running?

  • I agree that you need to be careful about not dehydrating. As soon as you feel thirsty, it is too late, so always make sure you have enough water. But at the same time, I need to warn people that hyperhydration is just as dangerous. That means drinking so much that your body cannot control it anymore. If you ever have some water and feel weaker after that, it normally is a sign of hyperhydration, so you would have to skip the next drink stand.

    Like I said, I agree with the running channel about not drinking enough. But what I mean with this comment is that there are always too extreme sides and the best thing is to be somewhere in the middle.

  • My runs are about 45-50 minutes, taking a big loop that starts and stops at my house, so I usually don’t bring water. I’ve been working to increase my distance and was thinking about bringing some water along, so this video was very timely. I have a hydration backpack for when I bike, but I don’t think it would be very good for running. I also have a hydration bum bag, I’m thinking about trying that first before I buy anything else.

  • i dont drink while running but i do get a dry mouth so carry a soft flask to ‘wet my whistle’ lol i found a small soft flask on the web thats only 125ml and fits in my shorts pocket and i dont notice it.

  • With allergies and asthma I must carry something to drink and clear my irritated throat. And with trouble keeping myself from overheating I keep my handheld, soft flask really cold.
    A Fleet Feet Run Crew member showed me her vest pack that she freezes; with the electrolytes in the water it becomes more like a slushy, keeps her cooler and is drinkable right away. As soon as I can afford one I’m trying it. Right now, I put ice packs in my hat, gaiter, and my back straps and freeze my electrolyte water in my handheld bottle.

  • “by the time you realize you need to drink more water it may be too late.” Not at all. Humans developed this feeling of thirst for this exact reason. All you need to do is drink when you’re thirsty. Not a hard concept to master. people have been doing it that way for tens of thousands of years and survived just fine. and NO, NOTHING can replace H2O in terms of hydration or benefit. Again, its been done for thousands of years and only recetly have we started questioning this, for no reason in particular. Water works just fine.

  • You guys (especially Anna) are awesome. My pro tip for bladder packs, turn the bladder upside down and suck out the extra air. Slosh is almost zero.

  • I run with a belt (Nathan) that is designed so that there is a holder for a water bottle in the back. For longer and hillier trail running/races I use a belt with 2 bottles and small pocket. Some observations — It seems in your video that you saying do not worry about water until 45 min, but I think it is very important to say that it depends on the weather, terrain, and elevation. In high heat and high humidity, a 45 minute hilly trail run or less in mid-day a runner can easily require water (And electrolytes). This also depends on the experience of the runner and any health conditions. — Always look forward to your show.

  • Rather than carrying one 500ml bottle and switching hands every mile or so, why not carry two 250ml bottles, one in each hand? They’re lighter and won’t affect your form / balance…

  • I am doing my first 50km race next year and I wasn’t planning on taking a bladder bag. I was going to just take my old college back with about 2 to 3 litres of water in bottles with any food I am gonna run with. The route I am doing is an old Roman route that was used to get from Lyme Regis to a placed called Ham Hill, so there will be plenty of elevation, so I was planning on walking some of the route, to allow for water and food breaks. I am not an ultra runner and this race is just for me to see how it goes. I have no idea on the types of food I should take with me. It’s just gonna be a little hit and miss

  • Your literally the BOMB �� ��…you keep exploding my brain with great high level information in such an easy and fun way of learning!!!! Keep it up!!! ����❤️��

  • Compressport free belt with soft flasks in it. Nothing moves at all. You don’t even notice it’s there. I can put 2 500 ml flasks in and as many gels as i wish. perfect for runs up to 3 hours long

  • Awesome!!! Thank you! Shared this info with my children this morning. I’ve also been sharing your info with my patients. I’m an RN. It’s my favorite part of my job to have positive info to share and hopefully send my patient on a positive path. Your podcast is my favorite.:) Blessings to you and your family. Oh, and I find your voice quite sexy, lol

  • On my daily runs I do not take water with me but when I’m going for longer runs I take my handy dandy handheld bottle. I do try to sip on water while running but when it’s summer here in Chile I will have to get a better hydration system. So this helps a lot

  • Bruh this is like my 5th day not drinking water and I’ve been so tired all the time and its really hard for me to sleep. I will definitely be drinking more water from now on

  • I live in Dubai, and now during summer with the humidity klimatap said it’s 42C, eek! I run with a camelback water bottle filled with ice cold water and spray it over my head to cool down. It’s so refreshing ��‍♀️����

  • Up to 15k I don’t carry water unless its backing hot mid day run then il take a soft flask. 15 + the 1 ltr bladder comes out will a electrolyte dropped in. Not a keen lover of drinking warm water though which always happens each time u take a suck ��

  • Thank you so much to everyone who has started supporting us on! We couldn’t do this without you! If you want to learn more about how to get involved, check out our Patreon page.

  • I have a liter of plain water first in the morning followed by 1/2 a liter of my concoction of lemon, turmeric, cayenne, black pepper, and apple cider vinegar water. Then I have anywhere from 40 to 60 plus ounces of water throughout the day.

  • I like to drink a sip of water as my mouth gets dry. On a normal day, I tend to like having 10 ml of water with me for an hour run. Feels like I run faster and am less tired, like some of your facts early on in the video.

  • Incorrect. Drink when thirsty. Humans used to drink water relatively high in minerals, electrolytes etc.

    Todays tap water is stripped of these important minerals, so forcing yourself to drink water further dilutes the electrolytes in your body.

  • For trail running or long road, I have a Nathan bladder pack that I find comfortable. For just more causal running, my house is on a 3 km loop that allows me to take a quick drink each time around.

  • Good advice Anna! I use a bladder pack for anything longer than 45 mins, I need a new one though as its quite a bulky one I got for mountain biking. Will be sure to check out your video on them.

  • I take medicine that randomly will give 50% of people excessive sweating. I’ve never experienced dehydration until I had some of these sweating episodes. I sit in the hot shower once I start sweating but that makes it so much worse but at the time is the only thing to relax me from the sweating. I had a sweating episode yesterday and I am still super dehydrated

  • After much digging I have discovered the Camekbak Nano and Ultra handhelds. I’ve just ordered a Nano and if I get on with it I shall get an Ultra for the winter.

    Hydration belts are sized for skinny people so unsuitable for me and hydration vests seem to me to be just a bit of overkill for now. I would have bought a hydration belt that uses the flexible flasks if the sizing had been acceptable.

    A lot more information is required on sizing though. Nobody would buy shoes labelled as small, medium or large thus the belts and vests need proper, clear and unambiguous sizing information ready available.

  • I’m happy to carry a water bottle, I soon forget it’s there. What I do try to do is pre-hydrate by sipping water on the downhills so I’m all topped up for the inevitable uphill that always seems to follow!

  • It’s a pity that there doesn’t appear to be a soft bottle with a hand grip option.

    At present I am coping without carrying water but as I am about to go beyond 80 minutes continuous I will need to sort something out soon.

  • For longer runs over 45 min, I just carry a water bottle. I used to not bring any but had severe dehydration during a half and don’t even remember finishing. So now just run with it and do loops where I stash additional water for really long runs.

  • I drink a gallon of water about an hour before I run. It keeps me going for about 3 hours depending on the heat. Great informative video

  • I like to have to a wee 250ml bottle shoved into my flipbelt. As the 250ml bottle is slightly curved it goes around my hip, is fairly secure and it also doesn’t take up much space.

  • Flipbelt bottle if I need just a small sip, handheld if i run an hour and if longer or on trail i prefer a vest with bottles or a bladder.

  • A good way to know if you’re drinking too much or too little is your pee color. Clear means you’re drinking too much, dark mean too little. You want a pale yellow! Slightly darker is ok too. You should really worry about red, and apple juice colored urine. As well as try to drink a bit less if it’s clear.

  • i found waistbelt is a total nightmare, very bouncy and bulky.i like handheld bottle for short runs, super easy for a quick sip. I should have a hydration vest for my long runs but still doing some research.Thanks the running channel for bringing up this topic.

  • I know it’s not healthy but now I can run op to 20km by 30degrees C without water. I just drink before and a lot after. I hate to cary some water on my run. The best way is if you have a biker with you that can cary your water otherwise i just don’t drink no matter what.

  • I love water!!! The “best” drink in the house!!! Another GREAT video Vince.. You’re so positive… you ALWAYS brighten my day!!! ������

  • I take a vest everywhere with water on one side and my phone on the other. I like my phone being close when I see critters on the trail

  • I use a bottle belt, its really snug and can carry gels and other bits and theres also the running pack with a 2lt bladder, good post Anna

  • I don’t think some of my Langerhans cells are working right I had to light a torch and apply fire to kill (I hope) some strange goings on in the Merkel cell department of my scalp. Burned a few hairs too in the process…

  • I fashioned a duct tape strap and taped it on the side of an ordinary 750ml water bottle so it stays in my hand without much gripping at all. Very janky, but I bet it’s lighter than just about any commercial product and quite a bit cheaper too:)

  • Great vid! I use a hydration pack for my longer runs find it really useful to have 1L+ water w/ electrolytes and they’re really good to hold any other items as well.

  • I totally think Mermaids would agree with you! Staying hydrated is huge!! If it is a shorter long run, I use a bottle. If it is a longer run, I enjoy my hydration vest!! It has saved my life!!

    The waist belts are too bulky for me to store water but I like my fanny pack to bring my phone for emergencies. When I go I my solo runs, I need that phone. You never know when you will have to call your spouse because you fell or got injured. ��

  • Definitely not how you’re supposed to hold that bottle at 6:45… hand around the bottle with the strap cinched down to your hand is the way to go lolz

  • I run with my dog, I have started to get him to carry the water tied to his harness, the only problem with this is that I get a couple of swigs and he gets the rest For long runs /hikes I will invest in a hydration pack for him and me.

  • I only just started running in March/April. When it was colder I was ok with my 12oz I drink with my vitamins before a run. But as soon as the heat hit I needed to take water with me. I have a FlipBelt and have a 5oz and 12oz bottle that can slide in the belt. But I end up carrying it a lot of the time, at least lately.

  • Its still surprise me just how some people don’t know about Fopobiacne Secrets despite the fact that a lot of people get rid of their acne problem using it. Thanks to my pal who told me about it. I have break free from acne.

  • Everything below 18k I do run without water. For long runs I use Salomon Agile 2. It’s a very slim veste with 2 soft flasks (500ml each). I like it.

  • My dad used to run marathon and during training rarely took water… so I grew up hydrating before and run up to a HM without any water and never had an issue even in summer…

  • Winter I don’t bother too much with water unless it’s a long run and I need some to get my gel down, then I’ll pick a route with public water fountains (I’m in New Zealand). Summer I wear a 1 litre camelbak if I’m doing more than 12k or on trails and I do have a 2.5 camelbak if it’s very warm or doing a race that requires lots of gear. I do have a Nathan waist belt that has two bottles and even though it’s comfy, I can’t stand the sloshing of the water.

  • I have a local 12km loop that has three public water fountains (these are open in NZ). For longer runs, I use a small bladder pack. For longer events that have compulsory gear lists, I have a Camelback backpack. This has good sized pockets on the waist belt for snacks too ��

  • As someone very prone to dehydration despite all my pre-hydrating efforts, I have to have a pack on me for any run over an hour! And plain water is NEVER enough—my go-to for electrolyte replacement is a mix-in powder called Liquid I.V.���� Be aware that some electrolyte beverages with higher sugar content can actually expedite dehydration!

  • I`ve been following bad breath remedy and my bad breath has totally disappeared. I now have so much more confidence because I could speak to people one on one without having to worry as to what form of odour is coming out of my mouth! Guide name is Kαyden codomab, I found it on Google.

  • Just a small heads up, if you do have a bottle with a handle strap like that Ronhill bottle.. don’t hold it like Anna did, sorry Anna.. shove your hand between the bottle and the strapping.. if you’re lucky it’ll be tight and you won’t have to grip as tight.
    Having said that.. even though I always end up running with a bottle at some point during a marathon event, I hate it, I instead run with a bladder regularly as I find it more comfortable.
    Funnily enough bought a running vest recently with the intention to use it for my first official longish trail runs this year, that have now been cancelled or pushed back thanks to covid, that has the soft flasks in the front and found it quite comfortable, however found you do get a little bit of a weird bounce with the water moving up and down in the soft flask on your chest.. not a slosh or splash, I imagine as I’m a guy, a similar feeling to have a bad sports bra? without the pain �� wasn’t really uncomfortable though, just took a bit of getting used to.

  • A bladder tip from me add a bit of squash to your water to remove any plastic taste! It works great for me, and as an added bonus can give you a little energy boost.

  • Do natural popular natural acne treatment like Fopobiacne Secrets really work and if so, how effective are they? We’ve noticed many awesome things about this popular acne remedy.

  • I am so f… Wellbuild with eating, that I need good amount of water if I run more than half an kilometer. So, that camelback is for me. With food.

  • could you please make a video about the nervous system it would be perfect. thank you so much we love ted ed and nothing above that.
