Over the next few days I am going to share with you 10 signs that you need more hydration, from an article I read by James Colquhoun, filmmaker of Food Matters and Hungry for Change and founder of FMTV.  See his full profile here.

Signs you need more hydration

All you can think about is sleep

When you can’t shake feelings of fatigue, it may be time to up your water intake.  When you’re hydrated, water moves into your bloodstream from your cells to help maintain the right amount of blood to regulate blood pressure.  When you’re dehydrated, your blood volume, and in turn, blood pressure drops, reducing the amount of oxygen content in your blood as well.  This lack of oxygen slows our muscle and nerve functions, making us easily fatigued.
