8 Tips to Hydration
Water is (aside from eating) one of the most vital aspects of staying alive; without either…we cannot exist.
Today, many people are suffering from headaches, fatigue, headaches, foggy thinking, heartburn, high blood pressure, stress, joint pain, backache, hunger, and even weight gain.
To help alleviate or even prevent these things from happening to your body – it’s important that you drink enough water daily.
Why Is Water Important?
We can survive for up to 40 days without food, but only 3-4 days without water.
Why is this? Our bodies are 75% water while our brains are 80% water. Even your bones are 25% water!
Every single process in the human body requires water.
You need to drink enough water on a daily basis because fluid losses occur continuously – from skin evaporation, breathing, urine, and more. So, these losses must be replaced daily for good health. When your water intake does not equal your output, you can easily become dehydrated.
Water is one important component for optimal health because water keeps your “internal stream” (or lymph system) flowing, making it harder for harmful organisms and disease to take root.
Drinking plenty of clean, high-quality water is a critical way to nourish nearly every function in your body. This very important lymph system, which sweeps all toxins (poisons, waste, viruses, bacteria) out of the body, requires water!
Without water, the lymphatic action slows down and weakens, allowing the toxins to accumulate and settle in where then inflammation takes hold. Over time – this can lead to illness, disease and faster aging.
When there is a shortage of water in the body, some parts are forced to go without water because the brain (remember the brain itself is 80% water) will direct water to the most vital areas of the body first.
The key is to keep ahead of mild dehydration by staying hydrated!
