We all know that drinking enough water everyday is commonly linked to a number of health conditions. Keep your body hydrated often leads to better sleep, improved amounts of energy, healthier weight and more. New studies are suggesting that drinking enough water each day can also put us with a lower risk of depression.
Mental Health And Dehydration
Dehydration is linked to a number of different risk factors with health concerns. Not getting enough glasses of water each day can leave us experiencing symptoms like constipation, dizziness, lethargy and dry mouth. Mental health is also closer related to our hydration levels. In studies conducted on concentration and memory, it was difficult for people to stay concentrated and to have elevated levels of mood when they were dehydrated.
In ongoing studies on mental health and dehydration it was shown that people in a dehydrated state were impeded in their serotonin production, had increased stress throughout the body and they also had reduced energy in the brain. These are all symptoms that can be commonly linked with depression.
Getting 8 to 10 glasses of water a day can be extremely important for our overall physical health as well as for our mental health. With the latest findings on dehydration and depression as well as dehydration and mental health, it could be time to revisit the quality of water within your home.
Without regular water consumption it’s difficult to maintain a healthy weight, maintain a well-balanced diet and to enjoy regular exercise. These are all factors that are commonly associated with a more positive mental health.
