Hydration & Virus Recovery

The virus on all our minds today is COVID-19, but there are many more common viruses that our bodies fight to fend off. Some of these viruses, such as the common cold, influenza, bronchitis, or the stomach flu, can also be dangerous. Any time your body is fighting an illness, especially a virus, hydration is essential.

How Hydration Helps Heal the Body

This video from Abbot Labs explains why the body needs to be hydrated — especially when you’re sick:

As you can see, hydration has many health benefits. Staying hydrated:

  • Keeps your electrolyte levels in check so your body can heal
  • Helps regulate body temperature and can reduce fever
  • Supports your digestion and the absorption of nutrients from food
  • Can help keep your airways clear to improve your breathing
  • Helps your body keep oxygen and blood flowing
  • Improves brain function

Because Knowledge is Power

At MX3, we believe that unlocking knowledge about personal hydration and electrolyte balance can benefit public health. This knowledge is essential for healthy athletes, keeping people in at-risk environments safe, and helping those experiencing health problems get better.

The MX3 Hydration Testing System uses a single hand-held device to run non-invasive tests with immediate results. These tests can tell you how much liquid to drink and what kind of beverage will best replace the electrolytes you’ve lost.

By putting the technology to understand hydration in the palm of your hand, you have the power to improve your health and create healthier communities.
