IMPORTANTLY! 7 signs that Your body is dehydrated

There are simple signs that you'll be able to answer this question without resorting to laboratory tests. When water loss exceeds 2% of body weight begins decreasing functional and cognitive level of the body. Once the body loses more than 5% of the fluid, it begins to decrease the rate of sweating and skin blood flow, and this affects the body's ability to distribute excess heat accumulating in the body. Lack of fluids in the amount of 6-10% of body weight lowers endurance during physical activity by reducing the volumetric flow velocity of the heart, sweating and skin and muscle blood flow.

The more stress we eat less food containing potassium (leafy greens, vegetables and fruits) and eat more foods containing sodium (all modern food). Often, dehydration causes stress, and stress causes further dehydration. published
