6 reasons to become a water-holic!

Did you know our bodies are made up of 60-70% water?  Did you know that when you start to feel thirty you are already de-hydrated.

Here are 6 reasons why you need to become a water-holic!
1. Want your skin to glow?  Our skin is the biggest organ and requires adequate water supplementation.

2. Be less cranky? Research shows dehydration can affect your mood and make you grumpy and confused.

3. Perform at a higher level? Our muscles are made of water. If they’re not refueled, they easily become dehydrated and don’t perform as well. We can start to become dizzy.

4. Help lose weight? Sometimes we think we are hungry, when actually we are thirsty. Our body just starts turning on all the alarms when we ignore it. Water helps suppress our appetite, preventing us from eating unnecessary snacks.

5Prevent degenerative diseases such as cancer. Research shows when you are hydrated you are less at risk.

6.  Flushes out waste and bacteria from the body through urine and sweat.

 

So how much water should we drink?

Research says roughly 2L every day. However this amount depends highly on the individual. Water recommendations change dependant on the climate, exercise, energy usage, and or the condition of a person. Always remember, drink to your needs and respond to your thirst mechanism. If you find it hard to remember to drink adequate water, always have a glass with every meal and or snack!

So now that you’re converted to a water-holic, lets talk quality of the water.  Unfortunately our tap water contains nasties like chemicals, toxins and metals like mercury. We can help eliminate these using a purification process.

Depending on your budget you can have the ‘mini’ or the ‘Ferrari’ of purification process. From inexpensive, simple and portable water bottles with filters inside, or to more costly under sink and or countertop reverse osmosis water filters.

So tell me. How much water do you drink and are you drinking enough?
