Recognizing dehydration 
 

Most Americans are chronically dehydrated
 

Our bodies work best when it receives enough water to produce a pale yellow colored urine and/or urinate about every 2 hours during the day.  Some supplements, like Vitamin B, will produce a deep yellow urine.  See chart below for signs of dehydration.
