Studies show that up to three-fourths of Americans drink well below the recommended level of water and over sixty percent are classified as dehydrated. Why you ask? Simple. People are drinking less water and more sugary sports drinks, sodas, caffeine and alcohol – all diuretics that act to dehydrate the body. Our bodies are made up of 60 percent water, it’s about time we start acting like it. Proper hydration helps muscles function, promotes proper kidney and liver health, ensures nutrients get digested and absorbed, and is pivotal for immune function. In 1978, a group of scientists from the World Health Organization (WHO) discovered sodium transport and glucose transport were coupled in the small intestine to accelerate absorption of solutes and most importantly, water. The discovery was labeled as “potentially the most important medical advance this century” because of its ability to treat acute dehydration (Lancet, 1978). In normal healthy intestines, there is a natural flow of water through the intestinal wall to transport nutrients into the blood steam, but in the case of dehydration, post exercise and daily fatigue, this process is disrupted and overworked. The coupled transport mechanism. between glucose and sodium allows the intestines to absorb water more efficiently and additional electrolytes such as potassium, chloride, citrate, magnesium, zinc and calcium can also act to stimulate this absorption process even more.
