Tom Brady has shared the secret to his success. Turns out it’s just water. Water is the secret to winning five Super Bowls and becoming one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.

Who knew?

Brady shares his secrets in his new book, The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance. They can all be yours, and you, too, can become a five-time Super Bowl champion, for the totally reasonable price of $29.99.

But say you don’t have $29.99, but you still want to achieve a lifetime of sustained peak performance. What then?

All you have to do is go to a book store (good luck finding one), flip to chapter 7 (“Hydration”), and read it. Brady breaks down all the different types of water, explains which is best, and why.

Pretty groundbreaking stuff here. Not coincidentally, if you want some of them electrolytes to put in your water, Tom Brady will sell you a bottle for $15.

So what’s the best thing about water, besides the fact that it will enable you to achieve a lifetime of sustained peak performance? According to Tom Brady, drinking lots of water prevents sunburns.

Take a look at this excerpt from the book:

“When I was growing up, and outside in the sun, I got sunburned a lot … These days, even if I get an adequate amount of sun, I won’t get a sunburn, which I credit to the amount of water I drink … When I once told that to my sister, she said, “You mean you don’t have to use all those moisturizers and facial products to keep my skin looking good? … I think you should market your TB12 Electrolytes as a beauty product.”

Wow. Look. Drinking lots of water—pretty much any kind—is good for you. But it will absolutely NOT prevent sunburns. Wear sunscreen.
