Drink some more and become better at thinking

Saturday, 6 April 2013

If you drink enough, you will be less forgetful.

If you consume enough liquids, you are more aware, learn stuff faster and think better. That shows the results of a survey conducted by the Germans. In order to ensure a good brain function you have to drink at least two litres of fluid daily.

The human body is composed of about 75% water. The brain is one of the most watery bodies, and for this reason, the brain reacts also specially vigorously on fluid deficiency. Older people often feel less thirsty and "forget" to drink enough. When we drink too little, the blood becomes more viscous and carry's less oxygen. The brain need both oxygen and nutrient, and therefore have a fluid loss a negative impact on brain function. And it leads to worse concentration and slower thought processes.
