As many of us have often heard hydration is extremely important to your health. This is your friendly reminder to hydrate in order to improve your brain function, prevent dark circles under your eyes, improve your workout endurance, and so much more. Studies actually show that sometimes when you think you are hungry that is a really a cue from your brain that you need to drink more water. This occurs because most people enjoy a beverage with their meal. It has also been shown that coffee, although a diuretic, does actually hydrate you to some extent.
