When your body is dehydrated is it your ADH (vasopressin) hormone that saves you?

In brief: Yes and now

When you body is dehydrated, your body holds on to both sodium (salt) and water. The antiduiuretic hormone helps you hold on to water by decreasing the amount of urine that you produce.
However, another hormone (aldosterone) is responsible for the preservation of sodium by limiting losses through your kidney.
