Today we are up to Sign 9 – we are nearly at the end of all 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.
Some of these signs won’t be new to you, but there are a few surprises in there as well.
Signs you need more hydration
Your head is pounding
Your body is constantly using up the liquid in your body, consisting not just of water, but essential mineral salts such as sodium and potassium. When your hydration levels drop, a chemical reaction occurs in your blood which your brain is highly sensitive to. Your brain reacts by triggering a headache. The headache gets worse the more water you lose, as the more your blood volume drops, the less oxygen flows to your brain.This causes your blood vessels to dilate and your headach to get worse.
