For any of you who watch Channel 4’s – not-for-the-faint-hearted – Embarrassing Bodies, you may have seen a recent episode which tackled the problem of excessive sweating. This topic is of particular interest to the Water Delivery Company and its sister company, the Water Cooler Company because it brings to the fore the importance of keeping hydrated. Knowing your sweat rate will also be able to give you a better idea of how much water you should be drinking, which means you’ll know how often to visit the water cooler.
Sweating is necessary to regulate our body temperatures in warm or hot weather, or when exercising, in fact if we didn’t sweat, we’d die. According to the Embarrassing Bodies Website “we lose over a litre of sweat a day and have an average of 2.6 million sweat glands in our skin to aid that process. However, around 1% of the population sweats excessively at times when they are neither hot nor exercising”. This condition is known as hyperhidrosis, and sufferers can lose up to four times the average amount of sweat a day! That’s a lot of fluid.
However much you sweat, it’s vital to keep your hydration levels exactly right. Both drinking too much, or not drinking enough water can lead to severe medical complications, and in this country, it’s the latter that is the most common problem. Having a water cooler in the home could make all the difference, and with the huge range on offer, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
