If you feel like you are not drinking enough water, just remember the human body is 55-65% water. And critical parts of your body like the brain are about 75% water. Give your body what it deserves with clean, high-quality.

Dehydration happens when your body doesn’t have as much water as it needs. Without enough, your body can’t function properly. You can have mild, moderate, or severe dehydration depending on how much fluid is missing from your body.  Common causes include:

You can lose more water than usual with:

  • A fever
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Excessive sweating
  • Urinating a lot (Diabetes and some medications like water pills — also called diuretics — can make you urinate more often.)

The Mayo Clinic recommends women drink 92 fluid ounces (11.5 cups) per day and men drink 124 fluid ounces (15.5 cups) per day. Individuals on the go, athletes, and people exposed to high temperatures should increase their water intake to avoid dehydration.

When too much water is lost from the body, its organs, cells, and tissues fail to function as they should, which can lead to dangerous complications. If dehydration isn’t corrected immediately, it could cause shock.

Dehydration can be mild or severe. You can usually treat mild dehydration at home by drinking water. In cases of severe dehydration needs to be treated in a hospital or emergency care setting.
