Do you get really thirsty before you take a drink or maybe you even prefer taking a soft drink to water when the sun is really high? You need to see this.
The importance of water in the body system is well known to most individuals, but nevertheless, we still tend to underrate the intake of this liquid! Just the previous day, I lay on my bed contemplating whether or not I should write about veggies. I couldn’t think real straight, felt tired and was thirsty but not willing to take water. Maybe because I thought I wasn’t very thirsty or I wanted some soft drinks instead.
Do you know what happens to your whole body system and its functions when you get very thirsty, here;
- You feel fatigued.
- You tend to have headaches.
- That mild headache gives way to grumpiness as well as a declined mental and physical state.
- Brain tissue fluid decreases with dehydration.
- As one loses water without replacement, the blood becomes more concentrated, which triggers the kidney to conserve water. Thus, one tends to urinate less.
- The more concentrated the blood is, the harder it is for the blood pressure to be maintained.
- The chance of exhaustion or even fainting increases.
