Your heart is a big muscle that is continually pumping to ensure you get enough oxygen to all your cells. A common cause of overworking your heart is dehydration — the act of your body not retaining enough water to function correctly. Dehydration lowers your blood volume, which causes your heart to work harder and faster to make sure the rest of your body has oxygen. An overworked heart is prone to heart attacks, strokes and other heart conditions. Your chances of heart issues decrease tremendously by drinking an ample amount of water per day.
