Water




Water is the single most critical nutrient. The brain is made up of 95% water, blood is 82% water and lungs are almost 90% water. Water is crucial in balancing all systems in the body. Lack of hydration in your body can cause your brain to actually shrink which causes slowed thinking and concentration. Dehydration can also impair endurance, decrease strength and cause cramping. Daytime fatigue is most commonly due to dehydration.

Did you know it takes about 3 days to get soda out of your body once it's been consumed. All those toxins floating around your body for 3 days, no thanks! that's reason alone to quit drinking soda. If you don't love the taste of water, you can add lemon or lime wedges or drink it as herbal tea. With the amount of sugar people drink from their sodas and juices, you may not realize your dehydrated. Sugary drinks actually cause greater dehydration. They also create toxic and acidic conditions in the body that interfere with proper health and lead to issues that detract from your physical health and beauty.
