Avoiding dehydration is an issue that most mommies struggle with every day. Dehydration is defined as a condition of inadequate body fluids. Most of us go through our daily lives in a mild state of dehydration. Research has shown that dehydration starves your brain of water which forces it to work harder. In addition, recent research has revealed that failing to drink enough water can make your gray matter shrink, reducing the size and performance of your brain. Researchers also believe that even just 90 minutes of steady sweating (without rehydration) can shrink the brain as much as a year of ageing. This has led some medical researchers to conclude that Alzheimer's disease is simply the result of long-term dehydration of the brain.

 

Mommies are more prone to dehydration more than others because of a number of factors including physical changes, increased pace of life, extreme focus on their child and minimal focus on themselves, breast feeding, stress, exhaustion just to name a few.
