EHI Supported Publications

One of the objectives of the EHI is to increase knowledge about human hydration by supporting new research related to this topic. To date a number of research studies and literature reviews have been supported by grants and donations from the EHI and an increasing number have been published in prestigious journals or presented in international congresses.
