ESSENTIAL READING ON HYDRATION
It was published in March 2010. I’ve been carrying it around with me for months and finally read it over the Easter weekend. It’s the best summary I’ve seen so far on research into hydration and health. It’s called “Hydration and health : a review” by B Benelam and L Wyness and can be found in the March 2010 edition of the British Nutrition Foundation’s Nutrition Bulletin. Everything is covered here – why we need water, how our bodies process water, the benefits of water in different foods and drinks, what water we currently consume and how much water is best. I’ll highlight some key points in future blogs.
