What foods can help me stay hydrated?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD
Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease)
Low energy can be caused by dehydration, which reduces blood volume to the heart, making it harder to pump nutrients to organs and muscles. Don’t just drink water to stay hydrated. Eat water-rich fruits and vegetables. Melons, pears and strawberries all have a high water content, as do zucchini, bell peppers and celery (comprised of 96% water). Be sure to avoid eating too many packaged foods as well, in order to stay properly hydrated.
