What Staying Hydrated Does for Your Brain

by Cascade Ice on April 10, 2020

It’s a well known fact that staying hydrated can improve your body functions, from your eyes to your skin. But how does it help the brain in particular? Your brain is nearly 75 percent water, so when it has a healthy reserve of water to utilize, it will help you think faster and more clearly. It may even improve your creativity! 

Water is also a crucial vehicle for delivering the nutrients your brain needs each day to function. Water can also help remove toxins, and make the exchange of nutrients and toxins more efficient. Ever heard of brain fog? This exchange is made easier because of plenty of water, ensuring we have better concentration and mental alertness. 

Now that we know how important staying hydrated can be on your brain’s functions, how can we ensure we get enough each day? If regular water gets boring, try out some fruit, like lemon or strawberry, added to your water. Cascade Ice Sparkling Water is a great alternative as well, with so many options and flavor combinations available. 

To get at least 8 glasses of water each day, try carrying around a reusable water bottle to remind you to fill up. You can even set a reminder or alarm to help you remember if you’re notorious for forgetting! Lastly, lots of nutritious foods like fruits and vegetables contain water, so stock up on the essentials to help you meet your daily intake and boost your brain function.

Cheers to keeping our brains happy, healthy, and functioning the best they possibly can!
