If you’re thirsty - you’re already dehydrated
I lived on the brink of dehydration for years and never knew it. I suffered body aches and struggled to concentrate in meetings. When I discovered that I simply wasn’t drinking enough water- it was a game-changer! Once I started drinking the right amount of water, I felt like a new person. I felt healthy and had energy to spare.

How do you know if you’re dehydrated?
Dehydration means our body is losing more fluids than we are taking in. As a result, we may experience the following physical symptoms:
- Infrequent, dark urination
- Dry mouth
- Frequent sickness
- Dull, dry skin
When we are feeling thirsty, our body is telling us to drink up more water. At that point, we are already dehydrated. Prolonged dehydration worsens symptoms and can become a serious health problem.
What effect can it have in your body?
Dehydration can negatively affect every aspect of your health including your sleep-wake cycles thus leading to serious symptoms such as fatigue, low energy levels, headaches, poor cognitive function, and altered mental state.
In the worst-case scenario, it may even lead to life-threatening complications such as painful urinary tract infections, kidney stones, high blood pressure, fatal heart disease, and strokes among others.
A daily hydration tracker to enjoy the benefits of hydration
Common wisdom will tell us to drink at least 8 glasses of water each day. However, that is not totally accurate. Every person requires different levels of hydration that mainly depend on their age, height, weight, and other personal health data.
A hydration tracker will help you maintain adequate levels of hydration according to a customized plan that fits your needs. This takes even greater importance if you're experiencing any sign of dehydration or if you simply don’t know how much water your body needs.
The REBO water bottle will help you reach your hydration goals, so you can enjoy the full benefits of hydration.
