To beat the heat this summer, go the natural way. Nature supplies the needs of human beings in abundance and it is best to make use of them. Water is man’s best-friend during summer. Dryness during summer can easily dehydrate, cause heat cramps and exhaustion if the human body is not properly hydrated. Drinking eight to ten glasses of water every day or more than that depending upon your requirements, outdoor activities and sweating. According to health specialists, it is best to always carry a water bottle during summer wherever we go and drink up at regular intervals. Lemonade or tender coconuts are said to have excellent cooling effects on the body. Due to excessive sweating, it is possible that the body loses minerals. Seasonal, fresh fruits that are high on water content are also great for the body. In particular, the summer fruits like water melon, musk melon and litchis have over ninety percent water.
