According to a recent study, researchers have stated that water may not be the best source in order to keep you hydrated. It is suggested that liquid with vitamins, salt and fats will enable your body to be hydrated sooner and for longer. It is common knowledge that the more of a liquid you consume, the faster your body absorbs and excretes it. Water has been said to be responsible for flushing out minerals and vitamins that are touted to be essential for the body.

“The reason has to do with how our bodies respond to beverages, according to Ronald Maughan, a professor at St. Andrews' School of Medicine and the study's author. One factor is the volume of a given drink: The more you drink, the faster the drink empties from your stomach and gets absorbed into the bloodstream, where it can dilute the body's fluids and hydrate you. The other factor affecting how well a beverage hydrates relates to a drink's nutrient composition,” according to a report by CNN.

Studies have found that milk was one of the most hydrating liquids that is nutritious for your body as well. Alcohol and caffeine was found to be dehydrating.
