THE Department of Health (DOH) – CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) today reminded the public to consume more fruits and drink plenty of water to avoid getting dehydrated as the country is continuously experiencing tremendous heat.

“We have been experiencing a very hot and humid weather the past few days and it is best to keep the body cool by drinking plenty of fluid, and eating fruits with high water content to stay hydrated. This will help prevent dehydration and will also keep your digestive system working well,” Regional Director Eduardo C. Janairo stated.

“Napakaimportante na ang katawan natin ay mabigyan ng sapat na tubig dahil binubuo ito ng 70 porsyento ng tubig at nababawasan ito kung tayo ay lumalabas, naglalaro at nagtatrabaho sa ilalim ng init ng araw sa pamamagitan ng pagpawis at pag-ihi.”

“Kaya’t kailangan nating mapalitan ang ito sa pamamagitan ng pag-inom ng tubig at pagkain ng mga prutas na sagana sa tubig at bitamina gaya ng pakwan, singkamas at sabaw ng buko na mayroong electrolytes, potassium, magnesium, sodium at calcium. Ito ay marami sa panahon ng tag-init.”

“Huwag ding kalilimutan ang pinya na may 87 porsyento ng tubig at may vitamin C na makakatulong magpalakas ng resistensya at makakatulong ding panlaban sa Covid-19,” he emphasized.

Janairo also remined nursing mothers to breastfed regularly as it provides 88% percent of water and gives the needed nutrition to a baby.

“Huwag na nating hintayin pang tayo ay mauhaw, ugaliin ang regular na pag-inom ng tubig at pagkain ng prutas upang lumakas ang ating katawan hindi lang panlaban sa dehydration kundi pati na rin sa Covid virus,” he concluded.|-BNN
