Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to announce a Special Issue in the journal of Nutrients that will focus on Hydration during Physical Activity. This Special Issue will specifically address a variety of hydration topics related to the performance, health, heat exposure, safety, recovery, physiology. and other factors that are influenced when fluid balance is altered during physical activity. Our aim is to bring together hydration experts from around the globe, and we hope that you will consider submitting recent data you have compiled that can contribute to the collection of articles in this Special Issue. We encourage outside-the-box concepts, ideas, methodologies, and questions that can invigorate the discussion of this vital topic that has such a huge impact on hundreds of millions of laborers, warfighters, athletes, and recreationally active individuals around the world.
