Did you know that 1 in 5 visits to the GP are related to tiredness and fatigue and 1 in 10 of these cases are thought to be related to dehydration?
We all live busy lives and a lot of us tend not to get enough water in our bodies on daily basis. Drinking enough water has a heap of benefits such as carrying nutrients to our cells, aiding our digestion, and keeping our skin looking good.
In the UK, the average person drinks only 1.7 litres of water per day, but it’s recommended by leading health organisation that men should drink 2.5 litres a day and women 2 litres day.
Fear not, today we’re introducing you to Phizz. It’s a 2-in-1 effervescent tablet that supports your daily hydration and provides you with a tonne of essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs.
Signs you could be dehydrated
Dehydration occurs when we aren’t replenishing the water that our body loses. There are some early signs that your body gives off to warn you that you’re on the verge of dehydration. Here are some common signs to look out for:
- An increased thirst
- Feeling lightheaded
- Dryness in the mouth
- Dark coloured and strong-smelling urine
- Passing less urine than usual
Causes and effects of dehydration
Simply put, dehydration occurs when you are losing more fluid than you take in. It’s difficult to pinpoint what the exact cause of dehydration is but here are some common causes of fluid loss:
- Excessive sweating from hot weather or intense exercise
- Being in the sun for too long
- Drinking too much coffee
- Suffering from a fever with a high temperature
- Urinating more than usual
Experts at Phizz say dehydration can hit the body hard. Even mild dehydration can have significant effects, including headaches, tiredness, changes in mood and increased irritability.
As dehydration gets worse, your body will start showing more severe symptoms such as a lack of urination, dizziness, heart palpitations, fainting, and in the worst case, death.

How does Phizz work?
As the tablets are effervescent, they’re easy to use. All you need to do is drop a tablet in your glass of water, let it dissolve and enjoy. We’ve simplified the science behind how Phizz works below.
As a hypotonic drink, it’s able to quickly replace fluids lost through sweating and contains less sugar than isotonic sports drinks. Phizz helps your body to absorb 2-3 times more hydration than drinking water alone by using the power of osmosis, which helps to drive the absorption of water in the body.
When you sweat, you lose electrolytes which need to be replaced. They contribute to brain, nerve, immune and muscle function, whilst also helping to prevent cramping and muscle fatigue. Phizz replaces the 4 main electrolytes that you lose when sweating which will work to keep you hydrated for longer.
It contains a wide range of 18 vitamins and minerals to help keep your levels optimum. A strong vitamin and nutrient profile will contribute to increased energy levels, better recovery, and improved wellness.
So if you’re some that works out hard or lives a busy life - Phizz is all you need to create a homemade electrolyte drink that fights off dehydration and puts the good stuff back in your body.
