Get hydrated already

Posted on

 

Drinking enough water helps to:

  • regulate your body temperature
  • provide a way for nutrients to travel to your organs and tissues
  •  It helps transport oxygen to your cells.
  • Helps with waste removal.
  • Improves your overall skin tone.
  • Assists in removing toxins from your body.
  • Prevents headaches.
  • Prevents aging – Aging is caused predominantly by the accumulation of acidic wast in the body. When we let these toxins build us they can cause all sorts of ailments and degenerative diseases.
  • Assists in weight loss
  • Prevents Arthritis and Osteoporosis
  • Boosts your metabolism- a warm glass of water in the morning with some fresh lemon juice will help kick start your metabolism.

 

20% of the water you consume should come from the foods you eat, raw fruit and veggies are a great source! The rest should be from water you drink. As a general rule of thumb You should drink liter of water for every 22kgs of body mass. Ideally the water you drink should be fluoride free alkaline water so you’re not consuming additional chemicals, this will help with the detoxification process.

Drink up!

    Nice, sweet and short 🙂

    However, the 1L/22Kg (per day?) seems a loooooooooot of water.

    I had always heard the 2L/day and even that sounds quite a bit if not taken when eating (they say drinking while eating weakens our stomach’s acids during digestion).

    Very interesting 🙂

      Thank you, glad you enjoyed it. The 1L/22kg of body mass is recommended by the ever incredible Don Tolman. He’s been a huge part of my healing process as well as many if my friends too so I trust his advice 100%. But it is true that there is a lot of information out there that is conflicting. I think what it ultimately comes down to is finding what works best for your body and doing that.

      Hope your day is magnificent.

      Jess 😊

    I went for an interview at a Urologist’s clinic a few months ago and we ended up in a discussion about this. It seems that at least half of their patients are young – as opposed to several years ago when they were elderly. This is because young people are drinking TOO MUCH water and their kidneys are unable to cope, causing kidney disfunction. It was interesting to hear the other side of the story. So I guess balance is what it’s all about. I agree four litres is a lot of water. The urologist recommended no more than two unless you are working out or in severe heat.
