Humans are big bags of water. In fact, almost 70% of our body is water. To keep our body healthy and in balance, it is important to drink enough natural mineral water during the day. In contrary to other liquids such as coffee, juice or soda, good quality, filtered water has no negative effects on our system. Coffee, for instance, is diuretic and thus increases the excretion of water and can worsen the water balance in your body.
The amount of water you need a day is different for every person. But try to drink at least 4 to 8 glasses natural mineral water day. It will give you more energy and will keep you more productive and alert. Don’t wait until you feel thirsty, it’s the first sign of dehydration and can cause exhaustion and headaches.
Choose water with low minerals. Too many minerals will overload your kidneys. Filtered water is a good option, but any water is still better than drinking soda or coffee. A reverse osmosis system is easy to install under your sink or you can buy special jug with filter systems. Drinking filtered tap water helps us reduce the amount of plastic bottles being dumped into our environment.
Drinking enough water each day will keep your skin hydrated and moisturized. This increases the elasticity of the skin and will make it look younger and more vibrant. Dehydration often leads to headaches and back pain. Drinking water rehydrates the body and helps you to reduce those discomforts. It acts as a lubricant and cushion for your joints.
Drinking water is great to lose weight. Water helps to metabolize stored fat, eliminates byproducts of fat and it also reduces the feeling of hunger and has no calories. Fruits and vegetables also contain lots of water, another reason to use fresh products instead of ready-made meals every day.
