Principles of Hydration
Date of Original Version
The link between water and life as we know it is profound. The topic of hydration is complex and has attracted the attention of health practitioners, educators, researchers, nvironmentalists, and policymakers whose investment in this topic ranges from health and well-being to our food system and sustainability. Water plays many important roles in our bodies, and even slight deficits in this crucial nutrient can leave us with a headache or feeling confused. For the physically active, proper fluid intake is critical for peak performance and proper recovery. Therefore, being mindful of thirst cues and monitoring fluid consumption to align with individual needs is integral to healthy living.
