Water is your most important nutrient, both for your brain and your body. For your body because it is about 70 percent water and it is the vehicle that transports your brain. Without your body, your brain could not go anywhere, move from place to place, or travel the globe. For your brain because it is nearly 3/4ths water, with brain cells themselves clocking in at about 85 percent water. Avoid dehydration like the proverbial plague. Dehydration is being linked with dementia—and in most cases dehydration is preventable. Thoreau said that Water is the only drink for a wise person. An old Slovakian proverb states that pure water is the world’s first and foremost medicine. Drink plenty of pure water every day to keep your brain and body organs from shrinking and shriveling like an old apple. How much is enough? Recent studies suggest that you drink enough water to have at least one pale-colored urine each day. Make water your beverage of choice. Not colas, not fruit juices, not tea or coffee. Water! It requires no digestion and can be utilized instantly. More tomorrow.
