Water alone may not be as hydrating and beneficial as one may think...The solution? Sodium!

Is drinking water by itself enough?

Some studies suggest that the answer is no and that statistically; most
people are not getting enough hydration from standalone water, because
it lacks trace minerals.

Trace minerals, or micro minerals, include (but are not limited to): iron,
manganese, copper, iodine, zinc, cobalt, fluoride, and selenium.
Their primary function is to act as antioxidants, support the healthy
growth of hormones, and support the blood system.

As one's estrogen levels fluctuate due to perimenopause or menopause;
it becomes more difficult to fully hydrate the body. Hence, the importance of
trace minerals and electrolytes. Dehydration and failure to balance
hormones can lead to brain fog, mood instability, decrease immune
functionality, and other longer-term symptoms.

Depending on your medical history and recommendations from your doctor,
taking trace minerals in supplement form could be extremely beneficial.
Another solution is introducing sole to your hydrating habits.

Sole is water that has been fully saturated with pink Himalayan salt rock.
The mixture is then added to water, one teaspoon per 8 oz of water.
Drinking sole can help with circulation, sleep patterns, weight control,
increased energy levels, and of course, optimal hydration due to the
minerals in the salt.

Be sure to consult your primary care physician before taking any new
supplements, or making changes to your health regimen. If you have
