A compilation of some of the events in which the EHI has participated which relate to its mission of advancing hydration science and sharing hydration knowledge.
Webinar – Why Hydration Matters
The EHI webinar exploring ‘Why Hydration Matters’ took place on Thursday 4th June.
With the promise of a BBQ-worthy summer and balmy days to come, it’s more important than ever that we make sure we’re drinking enough throughout the day to stay healthy and hydrated.
But proper hydration isn’t just an issue during the summer months. It’s important to take in enough fluid throughout the year. So how do we know if we’re well hydrated? In this webinar, we were joined by Professor Ron Maughan, Emeritus Professor of Sports and Exercise Nutrition at the University of Loughborough, and Chair of the European Hydration Institute’s Science Advisory Board. He discussed recently released research that demonstrates the effect hydration can have on our health, wellbeing and performance.
Also in the studio was Professor Monty Mythen, of University College London Hospital, to explore why hydration doesn’t receive the same amount of focus from researchers, doctors and the media as healthy nutrition, and why it should.
Both guests were also myth-busting and gave their advice on remaining healthy and hydrated, including the signs and symptoms of dehydration which we should all be aware of…
6th EHI Hydration Network Meeting
The EHI just held its 2015 Hydration Network Meeting at the Royal Society of Medicine in London.
The theme of this year’s meeting was “Why hydration really matters: new advances in research”. The meeting showcased some of the exciting new studies that the EHI has been funding over the past couple of years.
The meeting also unveiled a new online hydration course that the EHI and its partners are developing. The course aims to create better awareness and understanding of the importance of adequate hydration, its impact on health and the best means to achieve it. It will be launched later this year so look out for more details soon.
