Should Children Drink More Water To Become Smarter

Does Drinking Water Make Our Children Smarter?
Drinking Water Make Our Children Smarter?

Why is being properly hydrated important for our children? Being properly hydrated is important becausue it is integral to endocrine, immune, neural. cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, muscle, and skeletal function.

Dr. Michael Greger M.D. blesses us with information which indicates that proper hydration is also integral to our children functioning cognitively at their best, or smartest. The more dehydrated children were, the lower their cognitive performance was and they didn’t operate at their smartest level.

He makes the point that the children who were tested did drink liquids, but many of the children did not drink water or enough water. They drank other liquids such as orange juice and milk and they are not as hydrating as water is, which resulted in many of the children being mildly dehydrated.

The levels of sodium, sugars, and amino acids in milk and juice can shrink cells and trigger the release of the hormones that signal dehydration. The studies show that it very important for children to be properly hydrated with water to help them be their smartest.
