Foods That Keep You Hydrated

Hydration is essential to delivering nutrients to your cells, flushing toxins from your body, and even preventing infection. While drinking water throughout the day is a crucial step to staying hydrated, certain foods can also help!

Some of the best foods to keep you hydrated include:


Cucumber has a high water content of 96%, making it one of the most hydrating foods. It’s also rich in antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin A, which help to prevent free radical damage and promote digestive health. Especially after a workout, eating a cucumber may quench your body even more effectively than a simple glass of water. 


Did you know that celery contains 95% water? This makes it a hydrating vegetable with a satisfying crunch. Consider pairing it with hummus or peanut butter for a hydrating afternoon snack. With high amounts of fiber, celery is a foolproof addition to any health-conscious routine. 

Iceberg and Romaine Lettuce

Iceberg and romaine lettuce both contain high amounts of water. Combined in a salad with other hydrating veggies, like cucumber and celery, these types of lettuce help hydrate you while providing other nutrients, like vitamin C, vitamin A, magnesium, and folic acid. 


Rich in water, vitamin C, and potassium, oranges can rapidly restore your body’s moisture levels. As a bonus, you’ll gain immune support from adding oranges to your regular snack rotation. 


Strawberries are among the most hydrating berries available, with a water content of up to 91%. However, many berries contain high amounts of water, making them a quick (and tasty) way to rehydrate the body. Berries are also rich in antioxidants, which help prevent free radical damage and oxidative stress.

While the foods listed above can help prevent dehydration, IV therapy is the quickest way to rehydrate the body while delivering a personalized blend of nutrients directly to the bloodstream. Contact The IV-Suite in Orlando today to learn more about IV drip treatments!
