Could You Be Dehydrated And Not Know It? Check This List Of Common Key Indicators

"The physical state of being dehydrated is so common for some people - generally as a result of poor lifestyle choices, they lack the ability to see that their normal state is in fact quite abnormal."

Water is the key to life and a precious commodity as very little of it, in a liquid state, is known to exist in the universe. As for the water within us, when more water moves out of the body than enters we call that resulting state, within the body, dehydration.

Most people don't consider dehydration as a thing to be concerned about, but most people would be shocked to hear how common it is, this condition is far more common then you could imagine. Here are some key reasons why dehydration is so common:

  • 💧 Thirst is not a reliable indicator of the body's need for increased hydration.
  • 💧 Most people pay more attention to the fluid level in their car then in their bodies.
  • 💧 Many people rely on sugary, caffeinated drinks rather than water which dehydrate the body further.
  • 💧 High levels of salt and sugar in the standard diet suck cells dry of vital fluids.
  • 💧 All preserved meats which are in abundance in the standard diet cause dehydration.
  • 💧 Coffee, the standard conventional beverage is a diuretic and caffeine has been shown to speed up dehydration.
  • 💧 Fried foods are a major culprit, standard fried foods contain more than a days worth of dehydrating sodium.
  • 💧 Alcohol, another popular beverage is a diuretic and also compounds the effects of dehydration.
  • 💧 The physical state of being dehydrated is so common for some people - generally as a result of poor lifestyle choices, they lack the ability to see that their normal state is in fact quite abnormal.

Are you concerned about the potential ramifications of dehydration? Perhaps you need to review the symptoms to determine if you've already got an issue to be concerned about? Want to be on the lookout for symptoms in others? Here are some of the primary side effects of becoming dehydrated.

  • 🌊 Headaches
  • 🌊 Dry skin
  • 🌊 Extreme thirst
  • 🌊 Poor skin elasticity
  • 🌊 Less frequent urination
  • 🌊 Dark-colored urine
  • 🌊 Sleep disorders
  • 🌊 Digestive issues
  • 🌊 Fatigue
  • 🌊 Dizziness
  • 🌊 Confusion
  • 🌊 Weight management issues

Some of these conditions are so common that many may not even think thirst could be the big culprit. Headaches, Skin issues, Fatigue, Digestive Issues and Weight management issues combined likely impact the vast majority of Americans on a daily basis. And to think, something as simple as water could be all that's missing.

Class over, go drink some water. Try to get in at least 1/2 your weight in ounces daily (200lb person should drink 100oz).

Formula = My Weight X 1/2 = Ounces of water daily with 128 Ounces = 1 gallon. 

Want to seal the deal for good? Adopt a daily habit now of drinking a gallon of water a day.

The Master of Metabolism: How the Thyroid Gland Creates Vitality
The Master of Metabolism: How the Thyroid Gland Creates Vitality

by Dr. David Minkoff October 09, 2019 7 min read

When you think of “vitality” what do you think of?

For most people, it’s some image of an active life, bursting with energy: shining eyes; spring in your step; the zest of life.

But if you go just a little bit deeper into this idea of vitality, it’s not some abstract, ephemeral quality reserved for the chosen few with the right genetics. It’s a very real thing, grounded in the biochemistry of life.

And it ultimately comes down to your body’s ability to make biological energy, a complex process collectively known as “metabolism.” 

So if you want to enhance your vitality, it makes sense to start with the master regulator of metabolism –– the one gland that controls metabolism and energy for every single  cell in your body:

The Thyroid Gland.

And learning how to dial in its health is one of the most powerful ways to enhance your energy, speed up healing, and simply feel more alive.

You might think that with the current state of health in our society that manufacturers would see the value of investing in whole food sourced natural ingredients.  Poor government oversight and regulation combined with a lack of education for consumers creates an environment inconsistent with the primary intention of supplements which is to enhance and better health & well-being

PerfectAmino Uptake and Bioavailability, Plasma Test and Lab Results
PerfectAmino Uptake and Bioavailability, Plasma Test and Lab Results

by Dr. David Minkoff September 25, 2019 4 min read

Abstract
This study examines the effect of PerfectAmino on the plasma amino acid levels in 5 patients at an Integrative Medical Clinic in Clearwater, FL. Fasting levels of essential serum amino acids and glucose were taken, and then 10 grams of PerfectAmino were fed with repeat serum levels of amino acids and glucose taken at an average of 41 minutes and 103 minutes afterward. The data showed that in every case blood levels of essential amino acids increased significantly from fasting levels with no increase in glucose levels. Additionally, levels of conditionally essential amino acids, (Arginine and Histidine), had increases as well, demonstrating that with PerfectAmino both conditionally essential amino acids can be produced by the body when PerfectAmino is fed. We conclude that PerfectAmino in both tablet and powder from are well absorbed after oral feeding and have no significant effect on blood glucose levels.
