Head-to-Toe Hydration Benefits

Keep your heart healthy

Dehydration leads a reduced blood flow, which causes your heart to work on overdrive. In other words, your heart has to pump harder to circulate appropriate amounts of blood to your organs and muscles and keep your body oxygenated. This extra strain can increase the risk for heart disease, stroke and other issues. Your risk for heart disease also heightens when your blood becomes thickened due to dehydration. Case and point: Proper hydration is essential for optimal heart function. Plus, muscles (your heart is a muscle) work more efficiently when you’re properly quenched.
