‘Water catalyst for energy’
School is where the action is, and since water is the catalyst for energy, Summit Natural Drinking Water accompanies one in staying hydrated for maximum performance in handling school pressure, a press release from the company said.
When exams are coming up, students should drink up. The brain is composed of 75 percent water, and when it experiences water loss, migraine results. Severe dehydration can also cause memory loss, the press release said.
If one loses water by as little as two percent, his or her vitality is greatly jeopardized. This results to uneven distribution of electrolytes that are necessary for muscle strength, weakening endurance and causing muscle cramps. Mild dehydration saps your energy, so regardless of thirst, refuel with Summit Natural Drinking Water, the press release said.
Unlike carbohydrates and fat that provide energy, water acts as a catalyst to energy. Water carries the nutrients to the cells and makes them available for the body for immediate consumption, the press release added.*
