Hydration and nutrition week is important in getting people and organisations together to improve nutrition and hydration in health and social care.
Nutrition and hydration week is focused on healthcare settings, but is just as important for individuals too.
What do you need to know about nutrition and hydration?
The aim of nutrition and hydration week is to:
● Share nutrition and hydration best practice
● Provide education and professional development
● Identify the characteristics of good nutritional care
● Upholding standards for hydration and nutrition
The goals of hydration and nutrition week are vital all year round for health and wellbeing. We are proud of the part we play in improving the health of our customers, whatever their lifestyle.
In fact, we have recently teamed up with former British Superbike Champion, ex MotoGP race and current World Super Bike rider Scott Redding, who just loves our hydration water bottle and protein shaker.
Water the natural appetite suppressant
When the stomach senses that it is full, it sends signals to the brain to stop eating. Water can help to take up space in the stomach, leading to a feeling of fullness and reducing hunger.
A person may also think that they are hungry when they are actually thirsty. Drinking a glass of water before reaching for something to eat can help to curb unnecessary snacking.
In a studyTrusted Source, 50 females drank 500 milliliters (mL) of water 30 minutes before breakfast, lunch, and dinner, in addition to their regular water consumption, for 8 consecutive weeks.
The participants experienced a reduction in body weight, body fat, and body mass index. They also reported appetite suppression.
Why is water important with supplements and sport?
As well as hydration, Vitamin D also supports your nutrition by helping your body to absorb calcium and phosphate (3). These nutrients are essential in promoting healthy bones and teeth.
If you’d like to celebrate this hydration and nutrition week by improving your Vitamin D levels, we have a range of products available to suit you.
