Chronic Dehydration is Way Too Common
Chronic Dehydration is quite common in modern societies.
It's an important issue to be considered if you're not feeling well.
Water has many functions in your body, including:
- Carrying digestive juices
- Lubricating joints, eyeballs, nasal passages, lungs & bronchi, and the intestines
- Transporting vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, hormones and glucose throughout the body
- Shock absorption for spinal cord and eyes
- Maintains body temerature through perspiration and evaporation from the lungs when hot, and helping to retain body warmth when cold
- Assists in elimination of liquid wastes by filtering through the kidneys and elimination of solid wastes by transporting them through the intestines.
It is estimated that over 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
Often feelings of thirst are misunderstood as hunger, which is a cause of overeating.
Even slight dehydration can cause trouble concentrating, trouble with visual focusing, and has been shown to inhibit basic math skills.
A glass of water will often do more to boost your mid afternoon energy level than a cup of coffee.
