Your crank­i­ness when you haven’t been drink­ing enough wa­ter is real. Re­search by the Uni­ver­sity of Con­necti­cut shows that even mild de­hy­dra­tion (de­fined as an ap­prox­i­mately 1.5 per cent loss in nor­mal wa­ter vol­ume) can af­fect your en­ergy lev­els and abil­ity to think clearly. Lawrence Armstrong, lead sci­en­tist and an in­ter­na­tional ex­pert on hy­dra­tion with over 20 years of re­search in the field, ex­plains: “Stay­ing prop­erly hy­drated is just as im­por­tant for those who work all day at a com­puter as it is for marathon run­ners, who can lose up to eight per cent of their body weight as wa­ter when they com­pete.”
