Importance of Hydration

Proper hydration is one of the most essential aspects of maintaining good functionality of the joints and organs in the body.  Many of the body's essential nutrients are delivered through water.  Some of our joints, such as our knees have no blood supply and rely solely on nutrients from water to maintain proper function.  In the elderly, hydration is especially important because at their age their joints are already rather worn down.

The joints are supplied with nutrients through a substance called synovial fluid.  This fluid fills the space between the bones and provides the cartilage tissue and joint with food.  Synovial fluid is about 80% water which means that your joints do not receive a healthy flow of nutrients when you are dehydrated.  This fluid enables cartilage to stay strong and healthy enough to provide smooth, strong cushioning between your bones and keep them from Rubbing against one another.  Overtime, the lack of hydration will lead to starving, unhealthy joints and ultimately lead to more rigid bones.

Along with preserving your joints, water provides nutrients to you vital organs such as the brain.  Dehydration by as little as 2-3% of your body weight can lead to serious light headedness, loss of balance, and fatigue.

The amount of water one should intake varies from person t person and largely depends on you level of activity.  Six to eight glasses a day has long been considered a good standard to shoot for.
