A whopping 75 percent of all Americans are dehydrated.
Even mild dehydration will slow down your metabolism, cause short term memory loss and make it difficult to concentrate.
Staying properly hydrated is indeed a panacea for what ails you—from daytime fatigue to headaches to back and joint pain to sugar cravings to difficulty losing weight.
Our recommendation: Start a drinking habit—a water drinking habit, that is.
Sip eight to 10 8-ounce glasses of filtered water every day and watch your troubles (and your fat jeans) wash away.
