Hydration Matters

Health and Wellbeing_Hydration

The easiest thing you can do to feel better today is to keep your body hydrated. Around 60% of your body is water, and you won’t feel as well as you could if you don’t keep your water levels right throughout the day. Water is a vital nutrient and the best thing you can drink for good hydration which also helps boost your mental and physical health and wellbeing.

Being properly hydrated helps your body to:

  • maintain the right temperature
  • regulate blood pressure
  • flush out toxins
  • support your immune system
  • digest your food
  • move oxygen and nutrients around your body

Our Hydration Matters guide, published in partnership with Scottish Water, offers information on how to stay hydrated, why it matters and the key signs of dehydration to look out for.
