The Body Needs Water to Run Efficiently, that Includes Metabolism
“Water’s involved in every type of cellular process in your body, and when you’re dehydrated, they all run less efficiently — and that includes your metabolism. Think of it like your car: if you have enough oil and gas, it will run more efficiently. It’s the same with your body.” “Your metabolism is basically a series of chemical reactions that take place in your body,” says Trent Nessler. “Staying hydrated keeps those chemical reactions moving smoothly.” Being even 1% dehydrated can cause a significant drop in metabolism.
