Drink More Water!

Water is important to keep our bodies functioning correctly. IImagen fact, 60% of our bodyweight is made of water. Water helps cleanse the body of toxins and brings nutrients to cells. It is especially important to pay attention to water intake in hot climates or when exercising.

Women need about 9 cups while men need about 13 cups of total beverages a day. However, living in a hotter climate or working out easily increases this amount.

Dehydration occurs when your body does not have the amount of water it needs in order to perform normal functions. This will drain the body of energy even if it is only mild dehydration.

So remember to drink more water this summer so you can stay energized and hydrated!
