Proper hydration is key to having the energy you need to be active and focused. Dehydration is a major factor in fatigue and weakness. The only way for me to keep my energy, activity and productivity up is to stay hydrated.
Also, this is what Dr. Frank Lipman has to say on water, relative to hangover help:
"The reason why one gets a hangover is that your body - your liver in particular - is not able to process and metabolize the break down products from the alcohol quickly enough. In addition to needing enough enzymes, the liver also needs water to process and get rid of the toxins. When supplies run low, it takes water from other organs, including the brain. This is why alcohol is so dehydrating, and why you can wake up with a throbbing headache (and a dry mouth) from drinking too much."
"It is thus essential to drink a lot of water while drinking and before you go to bed... it can prevent a hangover or at least lessen one."
Good to know!
