Boost Your Health and Performance

Posted by Beni Cook

Here is a simple yet highly effective tip from Paul that you could implement immediately to boost your health and performance.

Did you know that 75% of the body is made up of water, even the brain is made up of 76% water!

Water plays a role in every biological process within the body. If you are dehydrated by as little as 1% this equates to at least a 10% drop in physical and cognitive performance.

The benefits of staying hydrated with a quality water source include:
> Weight loss via increased circulation
> Clearance of fat by product (toxins)
> Suppresses hunger (people often mistake dehydration for hunger)
> Digestion – helps with motility of faeces
> Detoxification – a transporter of toxins expelled through sweat and faeces.

Symptoms of dehydration include:
> Thirst
> Brain fog/ poor memory
> Cramping
> Dry skin/lips
> Hunger/ cravings

As a baseline, aim to drink 0.033 X your body weight(kg) each day. Factors such as increased stress, training and heat would require more
