Consuming sweets and desserts can have a significant impact on your hydration levels. This is because sugar consumption affects your body on a cellular level. Not long after eating sugar, the water particles in your cells are replaced by sugar particles. This causes your cell to send messages to your brain saying that they need more water, which makes you thirsty. Having a glass of water with your dessert with your sweets can help improve your body’s sense of hydration in these moments.
