Did you know that...

  • The human body is about 66% water
  • Our muscles are between 70% and 75% water
  • Our lungs are 90% water

Proper hydration does much more than simply keep you from getting thirsty, it also...

  • Helps convert food to energy
  • Protects and cushions vital organs
  • Lubricates joints
  • Moistens oxygen for breathing
  • Regulates body temperature

Did you know that the body can last up to 6-weeks without food... but only one week without water?

Here are some simple tips...

  • Drink at least eight 8oz. glasses of water every day.
  • Don't wait until you're thirsty to drink water... by the time you feel thirsty, you have probably already lost 2 or more cups of your total body water.
  • Don't substitute caffeinated coffee, teas or sodas for water.
  • Start and end the day with water...your body loses water while you sleep.
