Water is undoubtedly the most important compound in the body.  It makes up about 70 per cent of our body weight and we need to replenish our levels continuously.  Water helps us to flush out toxins via the kidneys, which can affect our energy levels and moods.

Water is essential for good brain function - dehydration is the number one cause of daytime fatigue.  Other signs of dehydration are headaches, poor concentration, fuzzy thinking, thirst and dry skin.  You can tell if you're hydrated by the color of your urine.  It should be a pale straw colour or clear.
