The human brain is 75% water and keeping the brain and body hydrated is key for students. If you want to keep your brain healthy and retain all those important lessons you’ll be learning in class then make sure to keep a reusable bottle filled with water and HDX to keep you hydrated and replenish essential minerals and nutrients throughout the day.

Stay Smart with Healthy and Hydrated Brains
“Within your student brain, a biochemical process of learning is occurring, that parallels the classroom experience. Making connections, finding meaning, and solving problems are learning tasks that require lightning-fast electrical impulses between areas of the brain.” Says Philippa Norman MD, MPH. “Formation of memory requires physical growth and reshaping of networks of brain cells. So that wonderful experience – when the lights go on and you say, “I get it!” – is a neurochemical process as well as an academic one. By nourishing the brain with healthy food and water, you will optimize the internal environment, enabling you to truly engage in the classroom environment and achieve your potential.”
HDX Hydration Mix offers your body three things it needs for developing brains:
Hydration. Hydration is key for developing minds and bodies. Keeping the body flush with water along with electrolytes and essential minerals and nutrients helps the brain to stay hydrated.
Fuel. The carbohydrates found in HDX Hydration Mix provide energy to help delay fatigue while speeding fluid and energy back into the body.
Electrolytes and Minerals. These are things like sodium, potassium, and chloride that we lose on a daily basis. When water goes out of the body, so do electrolytes. And when the body is losing water (through urine), you need to replace electrolytes along with key vitamins, amino acids and minerals.
