If there's one thing that would improve the quality of life for almost everyone, it would have to be more water. It's estimated thatmore than 80% of people go about their day in a perpetual state of dehydration, and when you start your day dehydrated, you're immediately on the back-foot.

When you’re dehydrated, the fluids in your body lose volume, your blood gets thicker, stickier and less efficient in delivering electrolytes, and consequently, other nutrients to the energy producing mitochondria in your cells.

Your body also becomes less effective at circulating oxygen and removing waste.  Imagine that: less nutrients, less energy production, less circulating oxygen and more waste.

Therefore, dehydration is one of the main reasons that the masses often go about their days feeling down and depleted, and also why caffeine consumption is at an all time high.

Perpetual dehydration is also a very big reason that people fall for the instant, but short lived, gratification they get from junk food. Their body is screaming for energy and it’s screaming for electrolytes.
