Hydration 101

Hydration isn’t just about staying alive. So many of us are dehydrated to a level which is fine but just not ideal. Here’s how hydration will improve your life:

1. Fights lethargy

Your body needs water to provide energy and have good cell function. If you’re hydrated you’ll also sleep better which also restores your bodies systems and allows your to have bags of energy, which also rules out lethargy.

2. Reduces High Blood Pressure

When the body is fully hydrated, the blood is approximately 92% water. This helps to keep the blood moving freely through the veins and arteries, helping to prevent high blood pressure along with other cardiovascular ailments.

3. Prevents unwanted weight gain

When your cells don’t have enough water they can’t create energy that they need to work. So they say “hey… get us more energy brain”. The brain then tells your to eat more, when really all you need is water.

4. Slows down aging process

To function properly, our cells needs water to provide energy. Without water, they work doubly as hard, which means they age quickly.

5. Means Healthier Skin

With proper hydration, your skin is at its best. Without it, your skin can’t get rid of toxins so you’re prone to break outs, irritation, congestion and lots of other undesireable things.
