Do You Suffer From Brain Fog? You Might Be Dehydrated.
Are you unable to focus correctly or forget simple things easily? If you experience frequent memory loss, a lack of mental clarity, poor concentration and have trouble focusing- you might have brain fog. Brain fog is also known as mental fatigue and is a common symptom experienced by people with Sjogren's Syndrome, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes and Arthritis and other illnesses. Scientists have recently discovered that there may be a link between dehydration and cognitive ability. A study at the Georgia Institute of Technology found a strong correlation between decreased attention, problem-solving ability, and a lack of proper hydration. Researchers found that dehydrated participants made more errors, especially when performing attention-related tasks, compared to well-hydrated people. While the condition may seem "harmless" and "temporary," severe brain fog can result in loss of income and inability to work and function properly. According to researchers, a 2% loss in water can affect muscle endurance and regulate body temperature and cognitive functioning. That means when you are performing tasks like lifting heavy objects, operating heavy machinery, or working and exercising in hot weather; it's essential to remain hydrated otherwise it may result in a critical error that can harm your physical and financial health.
