75% of Americans are functioning in a chronic state of dehydration.
Your body requires adequate hydration to function properly. Without it, you may experience a host of unpleasant symptoms, such as increased hunger and cravings, fluid retention, bloating, and weight gain.
Common signs of dehydration include achy joints and muscles, fatigue, headaches and dry skin.
More serious hydration can lead to dizziness and nausea, and in more extreme cases, death.
Staying properly hydrated will help keep your body feeling great and performing at its best.
Proper hydration increases energy levels, makes you more alert and can even help reduce stress.
Keeping your body hydrated helps accelerate your metabolism and means you are burning more fat.
In fact, studies have shown that drinking too little water can cause fat deposits to increase, while drinking more can actually reduce fat deposits.
It all has to do with how your body processes fat. It starts with the kidneys. They need adequate water to work well. If they don’t get it, they dump some of their workload onto the liver.
That’s where the trouble begins because the liver is one of the key organs involved in metabolizing stored fat energy.
