So, how hydration works? You’ve heard the advice a thousand times: Drink plenty of water. But do you know why? Or how much is enough? Your body is mostly water—about 60 percent, on average. It’s easy to take water for granted. For the most part, we are able to access clean water when we need it and can take our health for a spin without much thought. But our bodies are a lot more complex than a simple delivery system. The human body is composed of more than 60% water—which is vital to keep our organs and tissues functioning properly.
We all know that we need to drink plenty of water to keep our bodies healthy and functioning well. But did you know that staying hydrated is essential for a range of bodily functions and processes? From keeping our bodies and brains healthy to help prevent illness and disease, our bodies are designed to work best when they’re well hydrated. But how does hydration work for the human body?
The water we drink is absorbed by the intestines, and circulated throughout the body in the form of body fluids such as blood. These perform various functions that keep us alive. They deliver oxygen to our tissues, help regulate body temperature, and transport nutrients to our cells. The water we drink is also distributed throughout our bodies in the form of other body fluids, such as perspiration and urine.
Staying hydrated and understanding your hydration is really important, this is why we designed hDrop, the first wearable long-lasting, non-invasive, hydration tracker, that allows you to monitor your hydration during your workouts. Want to learn more about it? Check our main page!
