Most of us think of dehydration as a summer problem. The days are longer and warmer, you're sweating more. To compensate, you hydrate yourself with THORZT and a balanced diet. What many people don't realise, however, is that it's just as easy to become dehydrated in the winter. THORZT is the hydration solution for the weekday worker and the weekend warrior so it doesn't matter if you are on a construction site, the footy field, about to ski down a mountain or sitting in an office with the air conditioner on, THORZT has a product for you.
The Need for Fluids
Almost every bodily fluid process requires water to function. The human body can survive for a far longer period without food than it can without water.
The body cannot produce water by itself, so any fluid lost must be replaced. The amount required depends on body size, metabolism, climatic conditions, the food we eat and activity levels.
Fluid deficiencies will eventually lead to dehydration, heat stress and fatigue.
WHAT IS MILD DEHYDRATION?
- 50 to 60% of workers report to work in a mildly dehydrated state (1 - 4% of body fluid)
- Workers can sweat anywhere from 500ml to 2.5L per hour
- For every 1% increase in dehydration, the heart rate increases by 4 beats per minute
HOW DO WE LOSE FLUID?
The body may lose fluids in a variety of ways:
The rate at which fluid is lost may be increased by intensified physical exercise, and hot or humid weather conditions.
