60% of your body is made up of water. It is crazy to think that we are all basically walking, talking, living, breathing water molecules—but it's true. We're flesh, bone, and lots and lots of water. It might be tempting to think that we would all need to "fill the tank" and drink as much water as possible. However, according to the respected Mayo Clinic, "no one size fits all." Knowing your body will help you determine how much water you should enjoy each day.

So, if you hear someone ask, “Is drinking water good for the heart?” you can tell them that it definitely is!
Kids love to play. It's the time of life when they are most active. It is also when their bodies do the most growing and maturing. They need nourishment, healthy diets, and yes, lots of water! Many of us know the health benefits of drinking water, but getting children to drink more water can sometimes be the tricky part for parents.

Whether you're headed to a relative's house this year or planning an epic beach vacation during the winter months, you’ll probably be spending a substantial amount of time squeezed inside a car.

Everyone seems to talking about them but what are they and how can understanding electrolytes improve your overall health and hydration? Electrolytes are minerals that exist in the blood as acids, bases, and salts. Sodium, potassium, and magnesium are examples of electrolytes. When these minerals are dissolved, they break apart into charged particles called ions. The charge from these ions creates electricity that helps sustain not only human life, but plant and animal life too! When combined with the rest of your body's functions, electrolytes are the driving force behind proper blood pressure, circulation of nutrients, rebuilding damaged tissues, expediting waste from the body, and so much more. Without these little guys, life just wouldn't be possible.
