Specialty Dripps By Afton

Stay Hydrated at Altitude

Stay Hydrated at Altitude

 

    The average adult needs eight, 8 ounce glasses of water each day or about 2 liters to have adequate intake of H2O. But what about when you live at altitude, how much additional water do you need living at elevation? After all, altitude sickness can occur at elevations as low as 5,000 feet and knock you off of your feet for days.  At higher altitudes, you lose water twice as quickly through your breathing as you would at sea level. So it becomes even more important to stay hydrated living just within the city limits of Denver. Altitude Medicine recommends you drink an additional 1-1.5 liters of water per day when you’re at high altitude.

 
So how do we make sure we are staying hydrated on any given day without feeling like we have to have a Camelbak strapped to us at all times? One great solution is IV hydration! Not only do you receive 1 liter of IV fluids in 1 hour, Specialty Dripps by Afton offers additives to customize your bag to fit your needs. Drank too much on Super Bowl Sunday?
