Your cells, tissues and organs all need water to function properly.
Water plays a crucial role in removing waste from your body, as it lubricates your joints and maintains a correct body temperature.
Hydration is particularly important when exercising but it also ensures the everyday functioning of your body.
Electrolytes (such as potassium, calcium and magnesium) help to control the amount of water in your body. Their role is to direct water to the areas it is most needed.
Cut your veg into large pieces as you’re less likely to sever cell walls or lose nutrients to heat, light or cooking water.
