What does water do for the body

6 reasons combat athletes need to stay hydrated.

Our brains are made up of 73% water. A 2% dehydration deficit leads to muscle cramping, slower reaction times, slower reflex times, puts a strain on short term memory skills along with other important cognitive abilities.

Fluid acts as a shock absorber for the brain and spinal cord offering some protection from concussions and sub concussive hits when hydrated.

Independent of lifestyle and environment, dehydration leads to brain shrinkage. When the body is lacking water it pulls fluid from brain cells causing the brain to wither and shrink, not just effecting the size but also how it works.
