Make sure you’re drinking enough water.

A new study shows that adults that do not drink enough water may face a range of adverse health effects.

The report – published by the National Institutes of Health – shows that adults that are not properly hydrated may age faster, face a higher risk of chronic diseases and be more likely to die younger.

The results are based on data collected over 25 years from more than 11,000 adults in the United States.

Researchers looked at sodium levels in participants’ blood to reach their conclusions.
