Dehydration can be a serious condition.
We all know that up to 60% of the human adult body is water. But did you know that the HEART is composed of 73% water?
Dehydration can negatively affect your heart and cardiovascular system.
When you are dehydrated:
– the amount of blood circulating through your body decreases
– your heart beats faster, increasing your heart rate and your blood pressure
– can lead to problems ranging from swollen feet or a headache to life-threatening conditions such as heart attack or heat stroke
Keep your body hydrated.
