Stay hydrated, stay healthy

Water accounts for two-thirds of body weight and the brain alone is 73 % water. Water aids all bodily functions - digestion, absorption, circulation, brain function, nerve conduction, muscle contraction, moist nasal passages, lubrication, blood pressure and overall metabolism.  Optimal hydration helps to detoxify, maintain supple skin, flushes out toxins, prevents UTI, kidney stones and constipation.
