You’ll love the fruity undertones in my stress reduction detox water. It’s easy to make and even easier to drink, increasing your water intake and helping you stay hydrated each day.

Studies show that when your body is dehydrated your cells produce more cortisol, one of the stress hormones. Your body is about 60% water after all so this makes a lot of sense to me, once I stop to think about it. Cortisol being released in your body can be a signal that your cells are physically stressed out – they need more water to function at their peak. I’m sure you’ve felt some of the effects of your cells being dehydrated, including headaches, feeling foggy, and thirst masked as hunger. Add increased cortisol to the list and I’d say this is a problem most people would want to solve.
