Hydration: Drink 8 glasses per day of liquids including water, tea, coffee, and sports drinks. The human body is two-thirds water,and you need to maintain your body water against losses of about 500 milliliter per day through the moisture in your breath, sweating, and urination. If you don't drink enough water, you will lose energy and you won't be able to perform at your best. One way to tell whether you are well- hydrated is to look at your urine. If it is dark yellow, you need to drink more water. Stay hydrated and don't be thirsty. If you get thirsty, drink, drink, drink my friend!! A new study has found taste receptors for water for the first time in taste buds on the tongue. Water was always thought to be tasteless but you can taste it. The water tasting cells send a signal to the brain to stimulate drinking. Other brain cells sense how hydrated you are by responding to the concentration of salt in the bloodstream. The body regulates thirst and water very carefully which is why you need to pay attention to your thirst. #drdavidheber #water #hydration #coffee #tea #exercise to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com
