10 Things That Happen When Your Body Is Lacking Water

Unfortunately, a shocking 25% of kids and teenagers are lacking water throughout the day.

Most kids obtain fluids through fruit juices, sugary beverages, and other subpar options. A recent study showed that this doesn’t cut it; children and teens need at least two to three quarts of water daily. So, unless they eat many fruits and vegetables, they probably need to drink a lot more water.

The problem becomes even more widespread when you consider adults – one study found that half of the American adults don’t drink the recommended amount of water daily. When your body is lacking water, this can cause a range of problems, including digestive issues, urinary tract infections, fatigue, anxiety, and brain fog.

Unsurprisingly, according to a report by CBS, 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.

Did you know that water makes up 60% of our bodies, 75% of our muscles, and 85% of our brains? With that said, most people don’t take hydration seriously enough. It doesn’t help that most of us drink energy drinks, coffee, and soda instead of drinking what our bodies need.

These signs will surely tell you if you think you do not drink enough water daily. Being on the lookout for these symptoms can help you take steps to make sure you stay hydrated and healthy.

You might also suffer from dehydration if you don’t produce many tears. However, this could point to a different eye problem, so you should talk to your doctor if you experience this issue. Obviously, it goes without saying that you probably don’t drink enough water if you have a dry mouth and lips.
