Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

The human body is made up of about sixty percent water, and players can lose as much as three quarts of fluid during a single game.

The body needs water for every function, including digestion, the proper absorption of nutrients, turning food into an energy source, muscle building, as a way to transport nutrients, eliminating waste products and toxins, and regulating body temperature.  The better the body is hydrated, the higher the level of performance that can be maintained.
