Did you know that the human adult body is up to 60% water1? Staying well hydrated can be a challenge for almost anyone, but it’s especially true for people with swallowing difficulties. At least one in five older adults in long-term care has dehydration due to not drinking enough fluids2, making it a real danger that must be proactively avoided. A body water loss of 1-2% can impair cognitive performance3.
Left untreated, dehydration can limit the body’s ability to fight infections, and lead to kidney failure, seizure, or even death4.
Water makes up 79% of our muscles and 73% of our brains1. It’s like oil in a car engine. When you keep your body properly nourished with beverage choices like Thick-It® Clear Advantage® Ready-to Drink thickened water mixed with Sqwincher® Qwik Stik® ZERO sugar-free, low-calorie, your body can function well and feel at its best.
