Hydration Facts

Hydration & You: Why it Matters

Proper hydration isn’t only about drinking a certain number of cups of water per day. It’s about creating positive effects on your mental and physical performance. Recent research shows up to 75 percent of Americans are in a chronic state of dehydration, which means they’re missing out on the health-giving benefits of water.

Some facts to consider

The average person’s body weight is more than 50 percent water. A proper hydration level is crucial to maintaining body temperature and eliminating waste. 

Staying hydrated also lubricates organs, metabolizes fat, cushion joints and removes unhealthy toxins.

Keep the body going

The leading cause of daytime fatigue is mild dehydration.

Dehydration can also lead to muscle weakness, cramping, problems with coordination and increased risk of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. 

Despite being made of water, coffee, tea and sodas also contain caffeine. The diuretic effect of caffeine can prevent water from traveling to vital parts of the body. 

Refreshing sustainability

A one-time purchase of a Nalgene water bottle (approximately $10) can save hundreds of dollars per year, providing a portable, efficient hydration solution.

Water filters remove more dangerous contaminants than any other purification method.

Americans drink more than 39 billion bottles of water per year. A majority of these bottles are not recycled.

Clean, healthy drinking water is essential

The only proven way to ensure contaminant-free water is through the use of a water filter.
