Hydration for Heart Health

Hydration has a huge impact on your cardiovascular health. So dehydration will start to elevate, all of the risk factors for coronary heart disease. One of the ways that we can help to support optimal heart health is to hydrate well.

Ultimately, blood thickens when you're dehydrated. And then we have non optimal. It's not optimal for cardiovascular health. Drink up.
