Dr. Gladys McGarey

Daily Mail: I’m 102-years-old and this is my secret to having a long life (and it’s so simple you won’t believe it!)

Spoiler alert! It’s staying hydrated!

The Daily Mail UK has let the secret out of the bag. Dr. Gladys McGarey would know. At 102, she’s riding her tricycle, walking 3800 steps a day, and writing books! This is Dr. Gladys’ second time featured on the Daily Mail. This time, she’s telling us about the importance of water in life and what staying hydrated can to help you live long and healthy like her.

Longevity hacks are scattered all along the internet these days. Cold plunge, infrared lights, food diets, and weird workouts– you can find it all. But what better place to hear the facts that from A DOCTOR and second, a 102-year-old!?

From the article, “The doctor explained that not hydrating ourselves adequately can lead to a myriad of problems down the line. ‘Our bodies are largely made of water. It needs water to sustain itself. ‘Without sufficient water, it can cause memory issues, confusion and other health issues.”

Dr. Gladys’ philosophy (among others) is all life needs to move. Water helps with that movement. You need liquid to help your organs do their primary functions: breath air, move blood, separate waste, and expel it. It’s that simple. Water is life.

“Dr. Gladys told FEMAIL that making sure you stay hydrated is essential for preventing future issues. She explained: ‘I would advise everyone to drink lots of water.'” Doctor’s orders.
