Did you know that 50-60% of the human body consists of water? Drinking enough water is vital for our physical and mental health. It’s important for the blood, brain, digestion, heart, muscles, lungs… in short, the entire body! When we train, we sweat – which is why it’s important to drink more in order to stay hydrated.
