When it comes to taking care of your health, there are things way above or beyond just exercising and diet. From maintaining immunity levels at the right mark to being fit and also being happy while eating healthy—we human beings need to do so much at once.

Surprisingly, there are certain minor health issues that are so overlooked that we barely talk about them frequently. One such case is that of dehydration. Well, we all know that dehydration is a bane and losing say 1.5 per cent of the water content from your body could mean serious risks for you. We hardly know enough about why dehydration is so bad for our body. It does not just mean that you would feel excessively thirsty. Check out the top reasons why dehydration is indeed a trouble to be faced with.

1. Bad Breath

Sure, we have the saliva that plays an essential role in keeping us wet in the mouth. However, remember those days when you might have fasted or had forgotten to take in water while at work. In those days, the mouth began to feel unusually dry and by the end of the day, you might end up with foul breath. Not hydrating your body enough can cause the bacteria in the saliva to work and this could result in bad breath. Therefore, you need to tackle dehydration before it gets on to you!

2. Sugar Cravings

No, this is not just those cravings for a piece of chocolate cake or a truffle at midnight. Dehydration actually hinders your diet too, by way of allowing the body to crave for more sugar. From doughnuts to cakes, there is a lot of sugar cravings, which your body might not always benefit from. Not drinking enough water can lead to dehydration, which in turn cause rapid loss of glycogen. This makes your body want more sugar to cover the diminished levels.

3. Low Energy

Have you not hydrated your body enough before hitting the gym? Most often, we tend to be in a rush and reach for the treadmill and cardio session without having drunk much water. When the body undergoes dehydration, the first response is to get low on energy. This can actually cause havoc in your workout. In fact, this is the reason why sports persons drink water from time to time. Avoiding dehydration is crucial for your body to deliver optimal performance during any intense workout or game!

4. The Skin Woes

Yes, dehydration can take a toll on your skin’s glow as well. Unless you have a well-hydrated body from the outside and within, your skin tends to appear dull. Experts opine that short showers must be restricted as much as possible while ensuring that you bathe in lukewarm water only. Dehydration can cause loss in the inherent glow of the skin. Make sure you drink eight glasses of water daily.

5. The Tired Tirade

This barely takes much heck to understand. Dehydration can actually ruin the energy levels of your body to an extent that you feel tired. Experts have accounted for lowering blood pressure and heightened heart rates, when you are afflicted with dehydration. With such alarming side effects, we are sure you might be reaching for that bottle of water now.

Dehydration is indeed a bad thing that can lead to a number of poor health issues. Therefore, make sure you avoid it and naturally stay hydrated.
