What You Get from Drinking Clean, Healthy Water
A lot of people don’t drink enough water. Are you one of them? It’s not always easy in a busy life to remember to take along a jug or a water bottle, but science has shown that it’s very important that you find a way to drink a sufficient amount of water every day. Tri-Florida Water Clinic of Auburndale, FL, would like to share a few of the life-supporting benefits of drinking water and a little about the difference between standard tap water and water that’s been treated with a water purifier.
How much water do you need?
There’s a lot of debate on this subject. The traditional rule of thumb is to drink eight 8-oz. glasses of water each day. This might work if you live in a temperate climate and don’t engage in a lot of activity. According to the Mayo Clinic, the new rule of thumb set forth by the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine is about 15.5 glasses a day (3.7 liters) for men and 11.5 glasses a day (2.7 liters) for women. And remember, the more active you are and the more you sweat, the more water you’re going to need to keep your body hydrated.
What water does for you
Water is the largest chemical component in our bodies, accounting for up to 70 percent of our body weight. Our bodies don’t produce water on their own, as they do with certain nutrients. Rather, they rely on us to supply it. Drinking enough water for your body type and lifestyle does some amazing things. For example:
- Water positively affects every organ and cell in your body
- Water helps to regulate your body temperature
- Water helps your body to release waste through sweating and urination
- Water guards sensitive tissues
- Water cushions and lubricates your joints
- Bottom line: water keeps you alive
Are you dehydrated?
It’s easier to get dehydrated than you might think. One clear sign of dehydration is being seriously thirsty. (Note that excess thirst is also a symptom of certain medical conditions, so check with your doctor if you’re experiencing this regularly.) Dehydration can cause a variety of other symptoms, including:
- Mental confusion
- Infrequent urination or dark-colored urine
If you notice any of these symptoms, try loading up on some water and see if it helps. It very likely will.
The quality of water matters
While most any kind of water can keep you hydrated, only high-quality water will help to keep your body clean and running optimally. By “high- quality water,” we mean drinking water that’s been treated with a water
purifier, which you can have right in your home.
Typical tap water that comes from a municipal source can be full of a variety of impurities such as radon, arsenic, selenium and other chemicals, which can negatively affect a person’s health. Additionally, water from the tap may also contain sediment, parasites, bacteria, viruses and other contaminants. A water-purification system removes all this and more, leaving you with fresh, healthy and great-tasting water.
