Summer time vibes and the sunshine has arrived. The temperature is going to be much more intimidating. You’re gonna want to wear less clothing and need more fluids in order to stay hydrated. Hydration is very important for any and every living thing. According to research the body needs approximately about 3,667.12 milliliters for men and 2720.77 milliliters for women of fluids daily. That’s about 15.5 cups for men and women a little less about 11.5 cups.

Hydration the process of causing something to absorb water. “The human body requires adequate hydration to function properly.”

Dehydration occurs when you use or lose more fluid than you take in, and your body doesn’t have enough water and other fluids to carry out its normal functions. It can also lead to a loss of strength and stamina. It’s a main cause of heat exhaustion. You should be able to reverse dehydration at this stage by drinking more fluids. 

What if you don’t hydrate and dehydration continues.

You will have issues with urinary tract infections, kidney stones and even kidney failure. 

Here are  five helpful benefits of CO2 (carbon dioxide) for humans.

  1. Regulating blood pH: CO2 helps regulate blood pH levels, which can be acidic due to stress, diet, and pollution. 
  2. Respiratory drive: CO2 helps regulate respiratory rate and the delivery of oxygen to cells. 
  3. Hemoglobin affinity for oxygen: CO2 helps regulate the affinity of hemoglobin for oxygen. 
  4. Dilating airways and blood vessels: CO2 can help dilate airways and blood vessels, which can help blood and oxygen travel more efficiently throughout the body. This can be important for people with high blood pressure. 
  5. Improved CO2 tolerance: Improved CO2 tolerance can help you accomplish more work at a lower breathing rate, which can result in a lower heart rate and enhanced endurance. It can also help you withstand elevated CO2 levels for longer durations, which can contribute to increased fitness and energy efficiency.
