Stay #hydrated 1. #Thirst pains are real.
Yes, we have hunger #pains, but did you know that we also have thirst pains? Often, we can’t rely on a #drymouth to tell us that we need a little more H2O. Chronic joint pain, #headaches and gastric #ulcers can often spell d-e-h-y-d-r-a-t-i-o-n. #Water is needed to carry acidic waste away from cells, and when we’re dehydrated, these wastes don’t get carried away, leading to our nerves interpreting the acidic waste as pain.
2. If you’re #tired, it may be #dehydration.
One study conducted by Loughborough University found that a mere 5% drop in water levels in the body can cause a 25-30% loss in energy. Even a 3% drop can cause fuzzy thinking, “brain fog” and a slower metabolism. Another study conducted by University of Connecticut’s Human Performance Laboratory found that even a 1.5% water loss led to reduced cognitive function, headaches and fatigue in 25 women and 26 men.
3. #Allergies and #asthma can be linked to dehydration.
Dr. Batmanghelidj found that when the body is dehydrated, histamine begins to ration water, which in turn increases histamine and the allergic response and lowered immunity. Chronic dehydration triggers a histamine release in asthma sufferers, which leads to inflammation and bronchial constriction.
4. City water can mess with our #digestion.
City water is chlorinated to remove pathogens and disinfect the water. #Chlorine is a skin irritant (consider mounting a shower filter if you suffer from eczema or dry skin), pro-oxidant, and destroyer of friendly microflora and stomach acid. When our friendly microflora are wiped out, we can suffer from bloating and slower digestion, and when our stomach isn’t able to produce as much stomach acid and enzymes as it should, digestion can become downright uncomfortable. @itsanimatedtext
