Water is the key to life and a precious commodity as very little of it, in a liquid state, is known to exist in the universe. As for the water within us, when more water moves out of the body than enters we call that resulting state, within the body, dehydration.
Most people don't consider dehydration as a thing to be concerned about, but most people would be shocked to hear how common it is, this condition is far more common then you could imagine. Here are some key reasons why dehydration is so common:
Are you concerned about the potential ramifications of dehydration? Perhaps you need to review the symptoms to determine if you've already got an issue to be concerned about? Want to be on the lookout for symptoms in others? Here are some of the primary side effects of becoming dehydrated.
Some of these conditions are so common that many may not even think thirst could be the big culprit. Headaches, Skin issues, Fatigue, Digestive Issues and Weight management issues combined likely impact the vast majority of Americans on a daily basis. And to think, something as simple as water could be all that's missing.
Class over, go drink some water. Try to get in at least 1/2 your weight in ounces daily (200lb person should drink 100oz).
Formula = My Weight X 1/2 = Ounces of water daily with 128 Ounces = 1 gallon.
Want to seal the deal for good? Adopt a daily habit now of drinking a gallon of water a day.

Trying to get enough protein into your body to increase lean muscle mass, recovery and endurance?
It’s not a matter of how much protein you're consuming — but how much your body is able to use.
And depending on what protein sources you're using... that may not be very much.
But what's even worse? What the unused protein gets turned into. (Hint: It starts with an S and ends with UGAR.)
... Yeah, it gets turned into carbs (glucose) or stored as fat.
But let's back up. Because to understand the above you need to understand what protein actually is, and more importantly, what happens when it enters your body.
The following is adapted from The Search for the Perfect Protein.
What’s the common link between menopause and beauty concerns (sagging skin, hair loss) in women who are aging? It might surprise you to learn it’s a lack of protein.
One study showed that over a month’s period of time, adding an essential amino acid blend (amino acids are critical for making protein in the body) to a 2,000 calorie diet of mainly vegetables and some fruits plus walking for an hour a day resulted in significant weight loss without sagging skin under the chin or in other areas of the body.
Amino acids also help women mitigate the effects of menopause. During menopause, falling levels of hormones cause lean body tissue to begin to break down. Loss of bone, skin collagen, muscle mass, brain cells, and neurotransmitters all lead to more rapid aging, and the feeling that one is getting old. Wrinkles, weakness, osteoporosis, sagging skin, and a loss of energy occurs—all things women want to avoid.
There’s a lot of negativity that surrounds proprietary blends, but companies have a legitimate reason to use them---protecting recipes. The hard work and preparation that goes into producing a powerful multi-ingredient formula has been stymied. In fact, formulations have been constantly criticized by the general public.
How many times have you heard how companies with proprietary blends aren’t legit? Or how these formulations are made with cheap ingredients? Well, like the old adage goes, “you can’t believe everything you hear.”
