7 Recipes To Help Boost Hydration

7 Recipes To Help Boost Hydration

Water is the most important nutrient for humans. Without water, the body cannot function optimally, but many people struggle to keep up with the recommended daily intake of water. Failure to quench your thirst for water can lead to dehydration, which is the most preventable medical condition in existence. Unfortunately, most people don’t realize the severity of dehydration and how it affects the body.

What Is Dehydration?

Without water, the body cannot function. Water comprises about 60% of the body’s weight, and most of it is found within bodily cells (the intracellular space). The rest of the water is in the extracellular space, which includes blood vessels and the space between cells. Dehydration occurs when the body eliminates more water than it takes in. Water leaves the body via sweat, breath, and waste (urine or bowels). Still, the fact remains that about 75% Americans are chronically dehydrated. This can lead to fatigue, brain fog, mood swings, sluggish metabolism, and kidney stones. 

The best way to stay hydrated is to regularly drink water. Health experts advise that you drink half your body weight in ounces of water per day. If you weigh 150 pounds and divide that by two to get 75, you should drink 75 ounces of water per day. This will, of course, vary if you engage in physical activity. There is another way to hydrate the body, and that is via your diet. Many water-rich foods help to improve hydration, and they are included in the following recipes. Drink water or eat your water to avoid dehydration!
