In keeping with our “RESTORE Outside” Summer Series, we are focused this August on HYDRATION.

Take our RESTORE Hydration Quiz and see what you know about this major human function:

TRUE or FALSE (answers below … wait for it!!)

1) The human body is composed of approximately 80% water.
2) On average, people need 8 8-ounce glasses of water daily.
3) Coffee and wine don’t count toward total fluid intake.
4) You can’t drink too much water.
5) Exercising at sea level requires more water than exercising in the mountains.
6) RESTORE helps with hydration by strengthening the tight junctions of the gut lining.


Dr Zach explains how RESTORE promotes hydration in the body through its beneficial impact on the electrical charge of the gut lining.

1) FALSE — Water makes up about 60 percent of your body weight.
2) FALSE — The current IOM recommendation (nonprofit Institute of Medicine, now called the National Academy of Medicine) for people ages 19 and older is at least 104 ounces per day for men, about 13 cups (3 liters), and 72 ounces for women, which is 9 cups (2.1 liters). This includes total water, meaning from drinking water, other beverages, and food.
3) FALSE – They do count!
4) FALSE – Although uncommon, “hyponatremia” refers to low sodium levels in the blood caused by drinking too much water. At higher risk are endurance athletes.
5) FALSE – You actually need more hydration at altitude.
6) TRUE!!! As RESTORE strengthens the tight junctions in the gut wall, the electrical charge improves and water is able to travel more freely into the body from the intestines.* In fact, it is not uncommon to experience mild, temporary constipation as full hydration is promoted. In these cases, the first and best response is to increase consumption of water and herbal teas. See more at
