1) 75% of Americans are dehydrated.

Most Americans are considered chronically dehydrated. When this happens, we get used to the lack of water, so it can be difficult to tell when our bodies need to drink more.

2) The average American drinks just 2.5 cups of water daily.

On average, adults in the U.S. drink well below the Institute of Medicine’s recommended intake of 10 cups of water per day.

3) Even mild dehydration can inhibit your ability to think clearly.

Scientists say that when people drive dehydrated, they make the same number of mistakes that drivers make when under the influence of alcohol.

4) Feeling thirsty? You’re already dehydrated.

When we are dehydrated, the body's thirst response gets triggered. So, whenever you get thirsty, dehydration is already occurring.

5) Dehydration makes you sleepy.

When we’re dehydrated, our energy levels diminish. Staying adequately hydrated will keep muscles energized and ward off fatigue, moodiness, and sleepiness throughout the day.

6) You can’t survive more than a few days without water.

Water is an essential nutrient for life. Science shows us that without consuming water, human beings can only survive for a matter of days.

7) It can take just 45 minutes to rehydrate.

A study by The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that after mildly dehydrated men consumed just 2 bottles of water, it took under one hour for their bodies to function in a perfectly healthy and hydrated state.
