Staying hydrated is very important for an individual's health and overall well-being. Similarly, drinking water on flights is vital due to the cabin's pressure, which can cause dehydration quickly. While drinking water may sound very straightforward, it turns out there is much more to it. Martin Riese—who goes by @martinrieseofficial on TikTok—who describes himself as a "Water Sommelier," recently posted a video sharing what kind of water people should drink on flights. The video has garnered nearly 264K views and 163 comments on the platform.

Riese stitched his video with Mr. Plane Guy (@mr_planeguy), who can be seen holding up a bottle of Fiji water. The text overlay reads, "The Fiji water flight hack works. I didn't pee once on the flight. I've put up all my flight hacks in a series." Riese starts his segment by providing a brief introduction about himself. He explains, "Airplane cabins have very low humidity levels. So, therefore, it's extremely important to be hydrated." The water sommelier states how hydration means a combination of water and electrolytes.

"So, your body needs electrolytes to regulate the osmotic pressure. That means that water can get into your cell to bring nutrition into your cell and get waste of your cell," he states. Fiji water worked very well on flights because it had more electrolytes than what was seen in most purified water brands. It was one of the many reasons why Riese insisted that water was never just water and that the presence of electrolytes in drinking water was vital.

He also highlighted how water that had electrolytes tasted better and helped individuals absorb water into their bodies better. Riese concludes the short clip by saying, "So, yes, it's a life hack to drink good spring or mineral water on your flights. Cheers, my friends. Remember, water is not just water." People found his video very helpful and shared their thoughts on being hydrated properly in the comment section.

@robeartrap said, "Plus, the high silicon content makes it taste like drinking silk." @.ellelolo shared, "Ah. That would explain why I only wanted Fiji water when I was pregnant. It was actually the only water I could keep down." Another individual, @lexintheclouds, expressed, "Love you, Martin! Been drinking/purchasing only natural spring water for the last several years, thanks to you. Thanks for what you do!"

Water is clearly a resource that we should not take for granted, seeing how essential it is to our sustenance. Kati—who goes by @spreadyourdreams on TikTok—shared a video suggesting how people could save water with a simple method. The video demonstrates a simple way to prevent water wastage. The woman takes a water bottle and explains her mission to empty it into the soil. She says, "I'm on this quest to dump out any water that gets trapped in the plastic because once it's trapped in these plastic bottles, we now have lost it forever." The woman urges viewers to empty discarded water bottles to ensure they re-enter the water cycle.

Kati implores people to follow the same method for sports drinks or soups. If people were not going to use them, they should dump them into the earth. Most of them contained water, which would return to the ecosystem. This task is easy and convenient, as it doesn't necessitate traveling. Instead of heading to the sea or ocean, all that's required is a small amount of readily available soil from one's surroundings.
