WATER IS ESSENTIAL FOR LIFE!!! There’s no getting around it…YOU HAVE TO DRINK WATER!!!  Water makes up roughly 50-70% of the human body…water carries nutrients we consume throughout the body…our joints need water for lubrication…water protects our organs…and the list goes on and on.

The good thing is, our bodies tell us when we need more water.

Dehydration is REAL! Our bodies give many signs to drink more water..some are obvious and some are not! Signs like dry mouth and eyes, constipation, decreased urine, and muscle cramps seem to be synonymous with needing water.
