Dehydration can drain your mind and mood

Feeling out of sorts but not sure why? Chances are you might be dehydrated. Two new separate studies found even mild dehydration comes with big consequences: altered mood, impaired memory, trouble concentrating, fatigue, headaches and even anxiety. While the reasons for these symptoms may be unclear, researchers at the University of Connecticut Human Performance Laboratory noted that dehydration causes changes in electrolyte balances in the blood as well as serotonin levels in the brain, which can affect memory and mood.

How can you tell if you are dehydrated?

At home you can check the color of your urine. Anything darker than a pale straw hue means you need to drink more.

At the office at the doctors to check your dehydration with the moisture meter and Nutrition Response Testing for a more accurate reading.
