Drowsiness can be an important sign that our body is lacking of water. Water is needed for digestion process and metabolism.
A study from Tufts University found that mild dehydration (loosing one to two percent of body weight) can impair thinking. Full-blown dehydration on the other hand can cause electrolytes imbalance in body especially in sodium and potassium. These electrolytes aid muscles and heart function.
Lack of these electrolytes will cause electrolyte imbalance which causes cause weakness, drowsiness, disorientation and confusion.
That is why we feel sleepy, tired and hard to focus on work if not getting enough water.
