Don’t Dry Out: Hydrate!

Water is as important to the human body as the air we breathe. We can go weeks without food but only a day or two without water. (Don’t forget to breathe!)
The human body is composed of 70% water and no other essential nutrient is lost from the body as fast as water. The typical adult loses 2 to 3 liters (1-1.4 lbs) daily through urine, breath and sweat.
If water is not replaced at the same level that is being lost, then dehydration occurs and adverse effects such as high blood pressure, fatigue, poor digestion, constipation, headaches, kidney and bladder issues, premature aging and skin problems.
