Well, hydration is no rocket science. You need to replenish your body with enough water in response to the loss due to the burning of nutrients. We have been doing that for ages, and one can’t really go wrong here. But here is something that no one talks about. We all know how our bodies require less water in winter versus summer, this is due to excessive sweating in summers. Our bodies are calibrated to understand the change in temperatures and ask for more water. But this temperature change was never supposed to be so drastic. Hence, the buffer seasons; autumn and spring. These seasons were supposed to ease our journey into the approaching big seasons (summer and winter) and give our bodies time to calibrate to the needs of the season gradually. Now, comes the change in global climate and the warming of Earth because of which the buffer seasons have reduced over time. This is the reason, why we suddenly jump from wearing jackets to switching on air conditioners. This is where our bodies do not get enough time to adapt to the rise in temperature or one can also say that the mind is unable to understand the signals of the body's actual requirement.

So what happens now? As the temperature rises, we suddenly start losing out on essential body fluids, while not replenishing them enough, since we are not used to drinking so much water. Remember how in peak summers, our mouth went dry, that behaviour is something that has not kicked in yet. And this is where we start dehydrating. Some early symptoms of such dehydration are headaches, indigestion, fatigue, dry cough, pain in the joints, irritation in the eye, and uneasy sleep.

How does Hibiscus help? Hibiscus tea is naturally hydrating, as it is high in Vitamin C and Antioxidants. Anthocyanins and Polyphenols, help the liver fight oxidative stress and thus making sure your biliary system works fine. At the same time, hibiscus also aids your digestive system and promotes bowel regularity. Plus, hibiscus tastes amazing and is a natural replacement for sugary artificial drinks which makes you further dehydrated. Moreover, hibiscus can also be cold brewed. So you can actually refrigerate a bottle and keep it with you whenever you are fatigued. It's like your own homemade energy drink.
