What You May Not Know About Staying Hydrated
  • The human body uses water for almost every aspect of functioning even breathing. On average, a resting person exhales about a tablespoon of water per hour.
  • Drinking a glass of water can improve alertness and concentration. Studies suggest that just a slight dip in hydration levels can cause tiredness and foggy thinking. Certain body processes slow down at the first sign of dehydration but will speed back up as soon as water is drunk.
  • Milk or orange juice have a significantly higher hydration index than water because of the way the body processes liquid. Fluids with nutrients stay in the stomach longer than water which has a more immediate effect on the kidneys, stimulating them to rid the body of excess fluid.
  • Older people feel less thirsty. This is because the thirst sensation becomes dulled in adults over age 50 and decreases with age.
