How to Get the Hydration You Need

Water is really important. Good hydration is essential for every major body function and aspect of your health. There is no substitute for staying consistently hydrated with pure water. Water allows your body to regulate its temperature, flush wastes, prevent constipation, lubricate joints, and deliver nutrition to cells. It's central to brain, muscle, and skin health. The liver and kidneys depend on it to detoxify the body. It facilitates healthy weight management. Hydration is a pillar of basic human performance.

Dehydration, meanwhile, can be extremely detrimental. Your body naturally loses water through breathing, exercise, urination, and waste removal. When you aren't consuming sufficient water to replace the outgoing water, problems arise. At even one percent dehydration, you will begin to feel thirsty. Subsequent symptoms can include poor digestion and constipation, dizziness, foggy concentration, dry mouth, fatigue, and headaches. Headaches due to dehydration may also indicate increased bodily toxicity. Prolonged dehydration can crystalize the salts and minerals found in urine, potentially leading to painful kidney stones.

Tips For Good Hydration

Hydration keeps you healthy. It's one of the easiest (but most overlooked) elements of well-being. Remember to choose pure water: pollution and environmental contaminants can (and do) show up in our water supply, so filter your drinking water if you can. Since it’s best to avoid plastics and BPA, skip the bottled water and invest instead in a reusable stainless steel water bottle.
