Our body consists of about 70% water which enables communication between the individual cells. Water is required to regulate our metabolism, our heart and blood circulation, our digestion, kidney function, even to lubricate our joints and help with muscle function.
A lot of ailments today are attributed to the increased consumption of caffeines and the decreased consumption of H20. Did you know for every cup of coffee you drink, you need two cups of water to offset the dehydration? Did you also know most people can calculate how many cups of water they need simply by stating their weight and removing the last digit? For example, 120 lb person would drink at least 12 cups of water daily.
Water, our lifeline, isn’t being consumed in the ways the body requires. Lack of proper hydration can compromise your health and issues such as vertigo and dizziness are sometimes triggered because of dehydration.
