Many nutritionists and dieticians believe that the majority of us experience a constant low-level dehydration. But why does this matter? Well, our bodies are made up of around 70 per cent water and require a regular top-up to stay in perfect condition. When our water levels start to drop, mild dehydration kicks in and we may experience symptoms such as lethargy, headaches, irritation, joint pains and poor digestion. The trouble is many of these symptoms are attributed to stress or modern living. We also tend to interpret the signal of dehydration as a sign that we need to eat. People therefore often end up snacking on food when what they really need is water. More serious dehydration, which usually develops over a long period, can lead to a range of systemic health problems, including kidney stones and problems with water function. Skin complaints and joint pains can also be linked to dehydration. It is easy to become dehydrated in the course of your everyday life. When we move, exercise and even breathe, our bodies release water and toxins. This means that we need to keep regularly topped up; not by gulping down gallons of water, but by sipping regularly from a trusted source, such as the bottled water coolers at work. You don't need to buy expensive drinks to stay hydrated. The bottled water coolers that you see in your office kitchen contain all that you need: plain H20, designed by nature to hydrate and support all of your body's functions.
