Water is essential for concentration and mental alertness
Dr. Corinne Allen
Why is Water So
Important for the Brain?
The Brain is 85% water.
Optimal brain function depends on water and lots of it. Water is what keeps the
brain signals going. When the quality of water is compromised the signals are
short circuited. Water supports DNA and is the largest single source of energy.
The brain has no way to store water and dehydration comes if all the water lost
in a day is not replaced and this deficiency is accumulated. Brain cells need
2x more energy than other cells in the body. Water supplies energy. Nerve
transmission consumes one-half of all the brain’s energy (nearly 10% of the
whole body’s energy). When hydrated, you have more energy. When the brain is
functioning on a full reserve of water, it will function at full capacity and
you’ll think better…
