Dehydration has been shown to affect people’s brain function and performance. With age, the body loses the ability to detect thirst and, therefore, to maintain adequate hydration.

That is why you must anticipate the needs of the body and not wait until you are thirsty to drink something, thus dehydration will be avoided.

How do you know if you are dehydrated?

Most often, drowsiness, confusion, or listlessness are present. Sudden falls and increased dryness of the skin are also very common.

To prevent these and other dehydration problems, we recommend drinking fluids as part of your daily routine, even if you are not thirsty. You should also maintain a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables, in addition to keeping yourself cool and in ventilated environments.
