Water – its’ easy to take for granted. Scientific research suggests that regularly drinking H20 can have some surprising benefits. Through a series of thought provoking experiments, we’re going to explore the new science of water. Can drinking enough water make us faster? Smarter? Less stressed? Find out in the Zip Experiments.
EXPERIMENT 1: CAN WATER HELP YOU DODGE A BULLET?
It sounds crazy to think that drinking water could help you dodge a bullet! New research claims that someone who is thirsty can improve their reaction time by 14% just by drinking a little water.
"The newest science about hydration is a ‘wake up call’ and shows that over half of us are unaware that our reaction and response times are slower and less efficient than they can be", says Dr. John Tickell.
It doesn't sound like a lot, but if you think about life on a day-to-day basis, this could be the difference between breaking just in time to avoid a car accident, jumping out of the way of a vehicle or perhaps... dodging a bullet!
