Dehydration vs heat stroke
(0) Dehydration vs heat stroke
During extremely hot weather, it is easy for our body to overheat and thus become dehydrated. This can lead to life-threatening heat-related illness such as heat stroke and heat exhaustion. Heat can also make existing illnesses worse (for example may trigger a heart attack in someone with a heart condition), cause serious permanent injuries (such as damage to the brain or other vital organs), and in extreme cases result in death.
Heat wave
(0) Heat wave
A heat wave, or heatwave, or extreme heat, is a period of excessively hot weather, which may be accompanied by high humidity. While definitions vary, a heat wave is usually measured relative to the usual climate in the area and relative to normal temperatures for the season. Temperatures that people from a hotter climate consider normal can be called a heat wave in a cooler area if they are outside the normal climate pattern for that area. Heat waves, which can last for several days, can have a significant impact on society, including a rise in heat-related deaths. Heatwaves are among the most dangerous of natural hazards, but rarely receive adequate attention because their death tolls and destruction are not always immediately obvious. Population exposure to heat is increasing due to climate change. Globally, extreme temperature events are observed to be increasing in their frequency, duration, and magnitude. Between 2000 and 2016, the number of people exposed to heatwaves increased by around 125 million.
CoQ10 level may be reduced during times of intense training due to metabolic stress and elevation of free radical formation for most athletes. Therefore, the supplementations of CoQ10 will help in aerobic power, anaerobic threshold, exercise performance, and/or recovery after exercise in trained athletes and untrained individuals, and increase muscle CoQ10 concentration with 100-200 mg/day. Supplementation below this dosage may not give any effects on exercise performance as described in many studies.
