DESCRIPTION: The brain shrinkage associated with dehydration may not only play a role in cognitive impairment, but also levels of energy, alertness, and happiness.

This is the third of a video series on water. See the first two at How Many Glasses of Water Should We Drink a Day? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-many-glasses-of-water-should-we-drink-a-day/) and Does a Drink Of Water Make Children Smarter? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/does-a-drink-of-water-make-children-smarter/) Stay tuned—I’ve got more on the way.

Other healthy beverages include hibiscus tea (Hibiscus Tea vs. Plant-Based Diets for Hypertension http://nutritionfacts.org/video/hibiscus-tea-vs-plant-based-diets-for-hypertension/) and green tea (Dietary Brain Wave Alteration http://nutritionfacts.org/video/dietary-brain-wave-alteration/).
