Water is a large component of the human body, making up 45 to 75% of total body weight. On average, our brains are made up of 80% water, lean muscle tissue contains 75% water, blood contains 95% water, and bone has 22% water. Thus, hydration is critical to mental and physical performance and overall health. We need to focus our attention on improving our daily life's hydration habits to strengthen our High Performance and Nutrition habits. Water is essential for all life.
It helps all of our immune systems, removes toxins and wastes from our bodies, assists in digestion, improves our energy, and increases our mental and physical performance. Conversely, dehydration weakens our immune system, negatively impacts our digestion, decreases fat cells' ability to metabolize (making it harder to lose weight), and steals our energy. Dehydration negatively impacts our concentration, makes our heart work harder, and reduces the cardiovascular system's efficiency. Dehydration also affects the transport of nutrients and oxygen, the ability to dissipate heat properly, and the ability of your muscular system to operate effectively.
Water is the principal chemical component of the human body. Every system in our body depends on it daily. Normal brain function requires that brain cells are fully hydrated. Since the brain is 80% water, dehydration will lead to brain fog and headaches. Dehydration can decrease our attention and concentration by as much as 13% and reduce our short-term memory recall by 7%
Keys-to-Remember about Hydration:
Today I recommend, fresh vegetable juices that offer essential vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients (plant-derived compounds associated with positive gut floral) to support cellular function.

Part 1 of 3:
The exact amount is difficult to determine since each individual's hydration needs are different. The amount of water you need is dependent on my factors, including your health, activity level, medications you take, your diet, and the altitude, weather, and humidity where you live. Drinking a glass of water in the morning when you first get up - to flush out the toxins your body has produced during the night - will give you a positive jump-start on the day. Drinking a glass of water with your meals or drinking water before you get thirty are other ways to prevent dehydration.
I encourage my staff to carry a one-liter, non-BPA water bottle (without the toxic chemical bisphenol A in the plastic) to remind them to drink water consistently throughout the day. Drinking an adequate amount of water is not only important for brain performance, immune function, cardiovascular health, detoxification, and adrenal function; water can also help keep your stomach full and act as a natural appetite suppressant. Therefore, developing good hydration habits can also help you achieve and maintain healthy body weight. It is important to recognize that not all fluids you drink will hydrate you. Certain liquids can provide your body antioxidant, which we all need, and dehydrate us as well.
We can drinks antioxidant boosters that rob our bodies of water.
Alcohol (wine, beer, hard liquor)
Caffeine (coffee, tea, soda, energy boosters mixers)
Phosphates (fizzy drinks)
High-sugar drinks (juices, sodas)
Note: people who consistently drink these will need to adapt to caffeine's effects and actually experience a reduced dehydrating effect. Do you need to avoid these hydration-robbers completely? NO, but you need hydration strategies to compensate for drinking them, so the antioxidant you are receiving can help your body assimilate.
Fourteen to Sixteen gallons of water can be found in an adult human body. That’s how much water I’m walking around within my body mass. Imagine carrying 120 pounds of water –that’s three nearly full 5-gallon water jugs — around with you all day long, every day of the year. You can do this math for yourself. An average adult’s body is 60-70% water; it’s closer to 75% for children, but it can get as low as 45% if you’re overweight. Take your body weight and multiply it by the appropriate percentage of water, and you’ll see how many pounds of water you’re packing. If you want to convert those pounds of water into gallons, divide by 8.4. Add another 24 pounds of skin and what you’ve basically got is an ambulatory water balloon wrapped in flesh.
If you can’t drink water by itself, squeezing a little lime juice into the glass can make the beverage tolerable. You’ll also enjoy the nutritious benefits of lime.
Key Limes, a type of citrus fruit, is an excellent source of antioxidants. Antioxidants protect your body by preventing or stopping damage caused by free radicals, or chemicals that harm cells.
Limes are also a good source of:
vitamins A, B, C, and D
Remember, Fresh-squeezed key lime juice in the water, "No Sugar." The stringent nature of key limes has been used throughout history as a natural support to the body's detoxification system. I recommend that you start to enjoy a freshly-squeezed key lime water today.
