Beat dehydration by drinking eight glasses of Wilkins Pure Water every day


Summer is still here, and if you’re lucky enough to have the chance to go to the beach, don’t forget to protect yourself against the sun’s heat.

That includes sunglasses, hats, umbrellas, sunscreen, and hydrating your body by drinking eight glasses of clean, safe water.

Like a car in need of the right fuel to function properly, the human body also needs to be filled with a trusted hydration partner: Wilkins Pure, the newest packaged water variant of Wilkins, the country’s most trusted water brand manufactured by The Coca-Cola Co.

On the value of proper hydration, Dr. Ann Grandjean, hydration expert, sports nutritionist and president of The Human Nutrition Center at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, has this to say: “Our bodies lose large amounts of water each day, which must be replaced. We simply cannot survive very long without it. Detrimental mental and physical performance effects of negative water balance or hypohydration can set in rather quickly.”

Wilkins Pure is advocating a hydration revolution through the habit of drinking eight glasses of water a day.
