Got milk?!? Happy National Milk Day. The first day milk arrived in bottles was January 11th in 1878. Now I feel young!
There was a study done by McMaster University (a study funded by Diary Farmers of Canada). What they discovered was active children need to be watered with milk.
“Children become dehydrated during exercise and it’s important they get enough fluids, particularly before going into a second round of a game. Milk is better than either a sports drink or water because it is a source of high quality proteins, carbohydrates, calcium and electrolytes.”
1% of dehydration can have up to a 15% decrease in performance, with an increased heart rate, core temperature and less ability to keep going.
The most vital factor to achieving optimal health is HYDRATION!!!
The adult body is comprised of 60% water. A newborn is 78% water.
- The brain and heart are composed of 73% water
- The lungs 83% water
- The skin 64% water
- Muscles and kidneys 79% water
- Bones 31% water
What water does for you:
- a vital nutrient acting as the essential building material
- regulates body temperature
- proteins and carbohydrates are metabolized and transported by water in the bloodstream
- helps to flush wastes
- acts as a shock absorber for the brain, spinal cord and fetus
- gives you saliva
- lubricates your joints
BONUS: Fat tissue does not have as much water as lean tissue.

The K.I.S.S. ~ Got WATER?!?
- Women needs to drink 2.2 liters of water

Ultimately, take A.I.M. with 1 gallon of water a day; not counting any other drinks like coffee, tea, etc.
Water is the building block to achieving your optimal health!
