March Madness is down to the wire as we head into the Final Four weekend. Brackets have been busted around the world as Cinderella teams have crushed the dreams of many teams. While the games look a bit different due to COVID restrictions, adults every where are still enjoying the games with wings, burgers and perhaps a few ice cold adult beverages. And yes, we support a good, socially distanced, watch party, however it is important to remember to drink your water! Yes, your Fontis Water!
As you may or may not know, “alcohol acts as a diuretic. This means when your body breaks down alcohol, it removes water from your blood through your urine. That is why it is a good idea to drink water and other non-alcohol drinks along with your alcohol beverage to avoid dehydration. Dehydration contributes to the unpleasant effects of excessive drinking that go along with a ‘hangover.’ To decrease the risk of a hangover, make sure you get in the habit of drinking some water with every drink of an alcohol beverage.”
How Much Water Should I drink?
Livestrong.com, recommends drinking “12 glasses of water following a night of consuming alcohol. Do not drink them all at once. Space the glasses out over a 12-hour period. Be careful not to drink too much water because that can cause other serious problems, such as water intoxication.”
So enjoy the Final Four with great food and alcoholic beverages, just don’t forget your water!
