Water and Hydration

The eyes secrete about 5-10 ounces of water each day. Therefore, it is important to drink plenty of water, and stay hydrated, to support healthy eyes.

Sometimes it is not enough to drink plain water. If the water does not contain electrolytes, plain water may be excreted before it is absorbed by the body . Instead of drinking plain water, drink mineral water, or add your own electrolytes to water without adding sugar.

Enduralytes, by Hammer Nutrition, is an electrolyte replenishing powder that that can be added to water and that does not contain sugar. Be sure to order the powder so you can easily control the amount you use.
