Nothing a human being does is done without the brain.
So in order to live a healthy life, it is important that we adopt habits that take into consideration the health of our brains.

I decided to write about the importance of water and the brain after observing firsthand my son’s amazing improvement with focus and relief of anxiety at school, after he began making a conscious effort to drink more water.

We were taught by a professional of brain integration that water facilitates the brain’s electrical energy for all the brain functions, including thoughts and memory processes. After taking this into account and adjusting his water drinking habits, we were pleased to see great changes in his mood and concentration…for the better!

After reading a lot of research on the subject, the conclusion that drinking water and brain function are integrally linked was evident. It was shocking to learn that even though we are a part of the world’ s population most privileged in access to clean and drinkable water, many of us also are chronically dehydrated. Drinking water is such an easy habit that just needs discipline for it to be established and integrated into our daily routine.

We also know through research that the lack of water to the brain can cause numerous symptoms including problems with focus, memory, dizziness, brain fatigue, brain fog, headaches, sleep issues, anger and depression, and that water is also critical for the brain’s production of hormones and neurotransmitters. Wouldn’t it be sufficient information to make us more aware of the importance of water to our health?

Naturally, the health of our brains depends on many other factors to mention in this article; however hydration plays a very important role when we talk about brain and well-being.

Because the brain does not store water, it depends on our daily intake of it to operate in optimal health.
The most wonderful thing about it is that we have the power to make our brains healthier and brighter.

Got water?
