Hydrate for Health
Chronic headaches, fatigue, brain fog, difficulty sleeping and joint pain can stem from a poor diet. They can also result from a lack of hydration.

A chronic, low-grade dehydration can occur every day. Processed foods, air conditioning and electronics affect your hydration levels.

Water exists in water, vapor and solid. It can also exist as a gel, also called solid water. It’s the same form of water found in our cells. Plants and vegetables contain water as a gel, perfect for hydration.

Foods for Hydration

  • Chia seeds
  • Prickly pears
  • Aloe
  • Lychee fruit
