Drink Up

The pros at Vida-Flo share hydration know-how

Water makes up about 60% of our body weight so staying adequately hydrated is a primary building block in any health and wellness plan.  Every cell, tissue, and organ in our bodies need water to function properly. Whether you’re an athlete or are just going through daily life, the water that we drink and/or consume through fruits and vegetables is what allows our body to regulate temperature, transport nutrients, and fuel bodily function. 

Dehydration is a common cause of headaches and dehydration can trigger migraines.

One study shows that people who drink 2.5 liters experience less confusion, fatigue, and sleepiness, while the control group had a reduced intake and reported decreased contentedness, calmness, and positive feelings.

Proper hydration can reduce workout induced fatigue, improve endurance, lower maximum heart rate, and lead to less soreness post-workout.
