Dehydration can leave you fatigued and drained with limited energy.
The more water you drink the more alert you will feel. When we are lacking enough water certain bodily functions cannot work at their best. As a result our bodies become more under strain and fatigued.
Mild dehydration is defined as around 1.5 percent loss of normal water volume in the body. Studies have shown even mild dehydration can alter mood and energy levels.
Most people think about drinking more water when they feel thirsty but by then it is always a bit late – our thirst sensation doesn’t usually kick in until we are 1-2% dehydrated. This is why it’s so important to keep drinking water at regular intervals through the day so we can help our body stay full of energy.
