What is the importance of hydration?
The human body is comprised of roughly 60% water. Every single cell in the human body needs water to function. Losing just 2% of your body’s water can result in mild dehydration. Drinking water and replacing electrolytes serves a wide range of purposes in our bodies including removing waste through urine; controlling body temperature, heart rate, and blood pressure; and maintaining a healthy metabolism.
