Hydration

Hydration is a basic aspect in nutrition and keeping our bodies hydrated is needed for overall good health. Water sustains the body’s many vital chemical reactions and maintains correct body functions. For proper organ function, fluid status is carefully controlled by a range of hormones, and the amount of consumed fluid affects hydration of bodily tissues. Hydration of the body is a requirement for health and is essential for life itself.
