Chronic dehydration is a common issue affecting about 75% of Americans. Most people drink far less water than their body needs. Soda, energy drinks and other beverages can actually contribute to dehydration. Without knowing how to test for dehydration, many don't even realize they aren't drinking enough water.
Proper hydration is essential for digestion, detoxification of the liver and kidneys, and waste removal. Without it, many people face medical complications such as fatigue, headaches, joint pain, ulcers, weight gain, high blood pressure, and even kidney disease.
