Did you know that the human brain is 85% water?
The human body is composed of 25% solid matter and 75% water. When we deprive body cells of water, they start to react differently. Many of our backaches, headaches, and digestive problems may be caused by dehydration alone.
Coffee, tea, soda, alcohol and energy drinks are not water. These drinks contain water, but also contain dehydrating agents. Do not treat dehydration with these drinks.
How much water do we need? Some say drink when thirsty, some say 8 cups per day, and some say up to 15 cups per day. Your water needs are based on age, activity, climate, diet and health concerns.
Symptoms of too little water: fatigue, hunger, headaches, sugar cravings, and confusion.
Symptoms of too much water: disrupted sleep and mineral imbalance.
