About 75% of the population is chronically dehydrated. Being dehydrated can be misinterpreted for feeling hungry and most of us will reach for food before a glass of clean, alkaline drinking water.

Dehydration hinders your detox efforts and is one of the primary causes of daytime fatigue, sluggish metabolism, depression and inability to concentrate. According to Tao of Detox, dehydration has also been linked to cancer and chronic pain in the back and joints.
