Water, Water, Everywhere

We all know how important it is to drink water.

But do you REALLY know why we need to be drinking more water than we already are?

Some nutritionists insist that 80% of the country is walking around dehydrated.  We drink too much coffee, tea and sodas containing caffeine which prompts the body to lose more water.  More troubling is the fact that when we are dehydrated, we don’t know what to drink!

The answer is simple: drink water!

The average 150 pound adult body contains 40-50 quarts of water.  Almost 2/3 of our body weight is “water weight.”

Think of it this way:

*Blood is 83% water
*Muscles are 75% water
*The brain is 74% water
*Bone is 22% water

That is a lot of water that our body needs to adequately function in order for us to be happy, healthy and function humans!

Why water?

Water is necessary for your body to digest and absorb vitamins and nutrients.  It also detoxifies the liver and kidneys and carries away waste from the body.

And when it comes to digestion- it’s just not happening without water!  Fiber alone cannot aid proper digestive function by itself.  In fact, without water as it’s partner, good fiber goes bad and causes constipation and extreme discomfort.  

Can you say ouch?

If you’re dehydrated, you blood is literally thicker, and your body has to work much harder to cause it to circulate.  As a result, the brain becomes less active.  It’s harder to concentrate, your body feels fatigued and you just poop out!

Water- the miracle worker!

Simple water- when it’s pure and free of contaminants- without chemicals, additives, or anything unnatural, will:

  • Improve your energy
  • Increase your mental & physical performance
  • Remove toxins & waste products from your body
  • Keep your skin healthy & glowing
  • Help you lose weight
  • Reduce headaches & dizziness
  • Allow for proper digestion
  • Help to keep your body more alkaline
There are so many important reasons for all of us to drink more water, every day.  The easiest thing to do?  Make it a habit!

Carry a re-usable water bottle around with you and drink water to your good & continued good health!
