Dehydration occurs when you use or lose more fluid than you consume and your body does not have enough water and other liquids to perform its normal functions. If you do not replace the lost fluids, you will become dehydrated.

For a scientific summary, please checkout the science behind Wellnessentially.

Up to 60 percent of the human body is made up of water. The water we tend to take for granted until we lose enough of it to experience symptoms of dehydration, such as extreme thirst, dizziness, lethargy, headache and muscle cramps. If you overdo it on a hot day, you probably have an idea of how it feels.

Many people confuse dehydration with hunger! This way they end up eating instead of hydrating.
