Water makes up 60% of the human body making it one of our bodies most important elements. It plays an important role in nearly every vital bodily function we have, including digestion, absorption, circulation, maintenance of body temperature, creation of saliva and transportation of nutrients.
If your not drinking enough water your body can become dehydrated. This can effect your concentration and increase toxin levels which can make you susceptible to sickness, weight gain and premature ageing. Studies have shown that even mild dehydration can have the adverse effects on your memory, increase anxiety, and cause headaches and migraines.
For Cambridge we recommend drinking at least 2.25 of fluid per day. This helps to maintain blood volume and to prevent dehydration. You should also remember to spread your fluid intake throughout the day and avoid consuming a large amount at once. This is particularly important on Step 1 as it is necessary to compensate for the fluid that would otherwise have been taken in through food. As Cambridge offers balanced nutrition but in a concentrated form if you are using Ready to Drink shakes or bars, we recommend that you drink 250ml of water with each product.
If your finding yourself struggling to drink this amount, why not try our wide range of water flavouring . You could also try adding pieces of cut up lemon or lime or adding bubbles, sparkling water is great too!
