Oxygen, Water and the Brain

Communication is one of the most vital aspects of being a human being. People are social creatures and communication is the cornerstone of social interaction.

The mechanism that controls people’s communication skills is the brain. The brain controls all bodily functions, but when it comes to communication, the brain is especially important. The brain’s billions of neurons work together to ensure that people can communicate verbally and physically, allow them to process emotions and enable them to critically evaluate social situations. Without the brain, people could not exist.

When the brain is either damaged or not getting the support it needs, it begins to shut down.  Consequently, human communication abilities break down as well. There are many causes for brain problems, but one way that brain-related communication problems can arise is as a direct result of too little water and too little oxygen.

Again, the importance of brain health with regard to human communication abilities cannot be overstated. Let’s take a look at why water and oxygen are so important to brain health:

·         Stay hydrated: Water is the conduit for all nutrients and electrolytes that must be conveyed to and used by the brain. Water is a great river that runs throughout the body, using the bloodstream and it delivers the goods that the brain needs such as oxygen. Thus, people should be drinking at least eight glasses of water a day to keep the brain properly oxygenated and hydrated.

·         Stay oxygenated: Water delivers the magic potion to the brain: oxygen. The brain needs a lot of oxygen to stay salubrious and to stay alert. When the brain lacks oxygen memory lapses and haziness in thinking can occur. The longer the brain lacks oxygen, the greater the chance for irreparable brain damage and if the brain is denied oxygen for too long, the body can die. So how can the brain stay oxygenated? By staying hydrated of course!

Water and oxygen have a symbiotic relationship with regard to the brain. Water delivers oxygen, oxygen keeps the brain running. When the body receives an optimal amount of water and oxygen, communication skills are at an all-time high. The more deprived the body is of either element, the worse communication and concentration skills become. Thus, it is crucial that people know how water and oxygen effects their brain health and by extension their communication skills. The body needs both elements to facilitate the functions of human daily life by way of effective communication.

How many glasses of water do you drink a day?
