The benefits of drinking water are well documented; we all know we should be drinking more.
A recent Gallop survey indicated that 60% of the population is dehydrated, and that’s not because we’re not drinking enough fluid, it’s because we’re not drinking enough of the right fluid – water.
Our body is 70% water and our brain is up to 85% water. By the time you start feeling thirsty, you’ve already lost approximately 2% of your body fluid equating to a staggering 20% reduction in your ability to perform, both physically and mentally.
One of the most immediate benefits of drinking water therefore is maintaining peak performance.
The effects of dehydration
Chronic levels of dehydration can also be responsible for a number of ailments including:
- Dry Skin

If you find that you’re suffering from any of these, the solution could be simple; get an AquAid water cooler and see for yourself the benefits of drinking water more often. You’ll feel the difference immediately.
