Infographic: How Dehydration Affects Your Body and Well-Being

We’ve all heard it over and over: “drink more water.” It can seem like trite advice, but once you understand the negative affects of dehydration, you  might think twice about skipping out on that h20. According to studies, 75% of people are dehydrated! That’s an alarming number considering just how much not drinking enough water affects your energy levels, digestion, skin and overall well being. If you’re not drinking that recommended 8 glasses of water per day, now is a good time to start.

With more hydration you will notice you have more energy, better digestion, clearer skin and feel overall more vibrant. And if drinking plain water is boring and flavorless to you, you can add more hydrating foods to your diet such as cucumber, watermelon, tomato, and celery to meet your daily hydration requirements.

Check out the infographic below to learn more about how dehydration affects your body and how you can counter it with more water and hydrating foods. Drink up!
