10 Life-Changing Reasons To Drink More Water

 

10 Life-Changing Reasons To Drink More Water

Has it occurred to you today that you are thirsty? Guess what – by the time you experience the sensation of the thirst, you are already dehydrated. That thirst is your body calling for re-hydration.

So, really, what does this mean? Why should we drink more water?

Fitness, Health, Training, water, hydration, dehydration, circulation, medicine. Your body is composed of roughly 60% water. That means when we are dehydrated – and most of us spend our days constantly dehydrated to some degree – we are affecting the performance of the majority of our body. Nearly all of our systems do not function as well without the proper water intake.

1. If you don’t drink water, you will die.
It’s that important. Depending on our environment, we can live only a few days without water – maybe a week. We can live much longer without food. For most of us, we should prioritize the consumption of water far more than we currently do.

2. Help Prevent cancer.
Yes, that’s right – various research says staying hydrated can reduce risk of colon cancer by 45%(5), bladder cancer by 50%(6), and possibly reduce breast cancer risk as well.

3. Be less cranky.
Research says dehydration can affect your mood and make you grumpy and confused.(3) Think clearer and be happier by drinking more water.

4. Perform better.
Proper hydration contributes to increased athletic performance. Water composes 75% of our muscle tissue!(4) Dehydration can lead to weakness, fatigue, dizziness, and electrolyte imbalance.

5. Help Lose weight.
Sometimes we think we are hungry when actually we are thirsty. Our body just starts turning on all the alarms when we ignore it. For those of you trying to drop some pounds, staying hydrated can serve as an appetite suppressant and help with weight loss.

6. Have less joint pain.
Drinking water can reduce pain in your joints by keeping the cartilage soft and hydrated. This is actually how glucosamine helps reduce joint pain, by aiding in cartilage’s absorption of water.

7. Flush out waste and bacteria.
Our digestive system needs water to function properly. Waste is flushed out in the form of urine and sweat. If we don’t drink water, we don’t flush out waste and it collects in our body causing a myriad of problems. Also combined with fiber, water can cure constipation.

8. Help Prevent headaches.
Sometimes headaches can be caused by dehydration. So drinking water can help prevent or alleviate that nasty head pain. Next time your head hurts, try drinking water.

9.Help Make your skin glow.
Our skin is the largest organ in our body. Regular and plentiful water consumption can improve the color and texture of your skin by keeping it building new cells properly. Drinking water also helps the skin do its job of regulating the body’s temperature through sweating. I personally use a spray of beauty water from my Kangen Water machine. I keep it in my purse and use it often during the day. The result of this is that I have found my sun-damaged skin has improved immensely  and I have got rid of what I call the barnacles on my skin. 

10. Feed your body.
Water is essential for the proper circulation of nutrients in the body. Water serves as the body’s transportation system and when we are dehydrated things just can’t get around as well.

Quick rules of thumb for drinking water:
• Drink half your body weight in ounces of water (if you weigh 160lbs, drink 80oz of water each day).
•Carry a bottle everywhere with you as a reminder to keep drinking.
•Eat raw fruits and vegetables – they are dense in water. You can get water from food, not just from beverages.
•Drink water and other fluids until you urinate frequently and with a light color.

Unusual Signs of Dehydration

As you know dehydration occurs when you body is lacking in water and other fluids to function in a healthy way. Dehydration can lead to blood clots, seizures and other complications also effects mood and of course energy. That is why it is essential that you keep your body hydrated.

Here are six surprising indicators that you might be dehydrated.

  1. Bad breath. Saliva has antibacterial properties in it, but dehydration can prevent your body from making enough saliva.“If you’re not producing enough saliva in the mouth, you can get bacteria overgrowth and one of the side reactions of that is bad breath from chronic dehydration,” says John Higgins, MD, associate professor of cardiovascular medicine at the University of Texas in Houston, and chief of cardiology at Lyndon B. Johnson General Hospital.
  2. Dry skin – Dehydration can cause dizziness not allowing enough blood volume so you are inclined to get dry skin. Flushing of the skin is usually because dry skin is not evaporating as well as it should. Dehydration can also exist even if the climate is cooler, it is milder but proper hydration is necessary .
  3. Muscle cramps – When you overheat it can cause muscle cramps if you are dehydrated as the muscles work harder and they seize up for the heat.
  4. Fever and chills – Dehydration can also cause symptoms of fever or chills. Fever can be dangerous so if the fever rises over 101 F be sure to seek medical advise.
  5. Food cravings, especially for sweets – This can also be a sign of dehydration. Mistaking a craving that you are hungry but in fact you are dehydrated.  The liver which use water to release some glycogens and other components of your energy stores, so you can actually get cravings for food especially something sweet or salty snacks as your body is experiencing difficulty with glycogen production.Instead of  those sorts of snacks go for high water content food such as fruit, and vegetables, that will help you stay hydrated. Watermelon is a good example.
  6. Headaches – Hydration is very important to keep the fluid sack that keeps your brain from injuring itself on the skull. As depletion of fluid can cause the brain to push up against parts of the skull and causing headaches. This can be quite debilitating so you need to be assured that Hydration is essential to complete healthy conditions.
  7. Yellow Urine – Urine is low volume and more yellowish than normal.

Ionized water is one of the best ways to keep your body hydrated and alkaline. This is where I will introduce you to that complete water system of Kangen Water.

If you go to LIFECHANGING-WATER.COM. You will be able to find out all the information on this ionizing machine plus a free eBook on the subject.

Your Amazing Immune System

newsletter_medication

Medication
Do you take any of these drugs on a regular basis?

Aspirin/Pain medication
Cold medicines
Allergy medications
Antibiotics
Ask yourself why would you take these artificial chemicals into your body? Is it because you lack a strong immune system or because you’ve been told you have to take drugs to stay healthy?

Your body actually has an amazing ability to protect itself from harm through the natural immune system. When your body is healthy, your immune system can defend itself against millions of bacteria, viruses, parasites, and toxins. When you are run down, you may believe that pills are the only answer. This is a socially accepted norm that many people resort to. But it’s not always the best option.

What’s Inside That Medication?

Medication
Take some time today to read through the ingredients in your medicine cabinet. You’ll most likely find a long list of complicated words that are difficult to pronounce. Although they may sound very scientific, you will be left with no better understanding of what is actually in the pills you are taking.

The truth is that many medications can actually cause adverse side effects in the human body. Listen to television and radio commercials and you will most likely start hearing advertisements for lawsuits about previously acceptable medications that have caused serious problems.

Your Body’s Natural Defense – Hydration

Healthy Family
Staying hydrated and boosting your immune system naturally is a safe method to staying healthier. Water has no known side effects. Access to clean; pure water is convenient when you have an Enagic® water ionizer. Following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward keeping your immune system strong and healthy.

Alkaline Health – Part 4 – Why Should We Care

 

bg_waterfall

Look I know I have said it before but I am passionate about this subject and I love my new filtering machine. Are you suffering from sleepless nights, arthritis, restless leg syndrome, cramps, dehydration, sore muscles and numerous other debilitating symptoms. It could be and mostly,  that your body is Acid which is extremely negative to the body. So……

What is alkaline water, anti-oxidation, enhanced hydration, and why should we care?
Water is essential for life, but it is often overlooked. It’s critical not only to drink water, but also to drink the right water…
 
Alkaline water
Increase the pH of your water to restore balance in your body.
 
Anti-oxidation
Reduce the water’s Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) to protect against free radicals, allowing your tissues to rejuvenate.
 
Enhanced hydration
Micro-cluster water molecules so your cells and body can hydrate more effectively.
 
 
Why Alkaline Water?
 
Our bodies consists of over 70 percent water molecules, which makes water the most important factor to our health.
 
In general, alkalinity promotes and maintains optimal health in the body, while acidity has a negative impact. While some acidity is natural and necessary, many people suffer from leaning too acidic, which is a far too common result of our modern diet from acidic foods and beverages. When we lean acidic, our bodies compensate through natural buffers, which kick in to maintain the necessary alkalinity in the body. Over time, this compensation can lead to unintended consequences, such as weaker bones and muscles or even disease. Alkaline water offers a convenient and safe way to bring our bodies back into balance and achieve optimal hydration.
 
Water is the most crucial factor in establishing and maintaining proper acid-alkaline balance. pH (Potential of Hydrogen) is a measure of relative acidity or alkalinity, with 0 at the extreme acid end of the scale and 14 at the extreme alkaline end. The blood stream seeks to maintain a consistent pH balance of 7.3 or 7.4, but poor quality diet, stress, environmental toxins, and medications can cause our metabolic pH to become too acidic. Because disease thrives in acidosis, drinking alkaline water is the fastest way to positively impact health and eradicate inflammation caused by excess acidity. High pH water (about 9.5) can alkaline the body at the cellular level and help the blood stream maintain its appropriate pH. This, in turn, helps to increase energy, improve sleep, reduce pain, eliminate acid reflux, normalize blood pressure and weight, and resist disease.
 
 
What is pH?
 
pH stands for ‘potential of Hydrogen,’ which is a measure of hydrogen ion concentration; a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. The pH scale ranges from 1-14 used to measure how acidic or alkaline a substance is. A pH of 7 is neutral. A pH less than 7 is acidic, and a pH greater than 7 is alkaline. A Danish chemist, S.P.L. Sørensen, invented it back in 1909.
 
 
What is Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP)? Anti-oxidation
 
The Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) is a measurement of the presence of oxidizing agents in drinking water. A positive ORP indicates oxidation (aging/deterioration) potential whereas a negative ORP indicates antioxidant (anti-aging/beneficial) potential. Most tap and bottled water typically have a positive ORP. For example, tap water may have an ORP of +580-600mV. However, a negative value is desirable for deoxidization power. The ideal ORP level for the human body is said to be between -150mV and -400mV.
 
Medically it is known that active oxygen, also known as free radicals, enters the body when one’s daily rhythm of life or diet goes astray when under stress. It is the type of oxygen that causes illness and aging. Maintaining a daily rhythm will help keep this oxygen from entering your body! Likewise, drinking water with an ideal ORP level also aids in reducing active oxygen/free radicals in the body.
 
 
What is micro-clustered water? Enhanced hydration
 
A water molecule is made of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom to make up the commonly known H2O ‘water’ molecule. However, what you may not know is that water comes in clusters of molecules (rather than single molecules), and tap water contains very large clusters of up to 13 molecules. What this means for your body is that you will feel fuller longer after drinking a glass of tap water, because of the amount of water molecules that need to be processed for hydration.
 
However, if you drink micro-clustered water that contains only five or six molecule clusters, the water will be that much more hydrating, soluble, and permeating for the cells and the body. In essence, micro-clustered water delivers wetter water so that more of the nutrients will be absorbed into the cells at a faster rate.
 
Sound confusing? Think of micro-clustered water as a handful of BBs compared to a softball. If you throw the softball at a chain-link fence, it won’t pass through. However, if you throw the BBs at the fence, they pass through seamlessly. Micro-clustered water is like that. It permeates your cells much like the BBs through the fence, hydrating your body within seconds of drinking, leaving you less bloated and more completely hydrated.
 
By drinking water that contains fewer molecules, or micro-clustered, alkaline, ionized water, you can hydrate your body more quickly and effectively, enhance energy levels, improve your overall aerobic capacity and health, and prevent premature aging. Additionally, antioxidants are a benefit of micro-clustering, which have been proven to boost the immune system.
 
The benefits of micro-clustered water were upheld by an independent study conducted by the Chinese Health Care Science and Technology Society (CHCS), which found that 60 percent of people who drank micro-clustered water had their cellular hydration level increase tenfold.
 
Kangen Water® system produces ionized alkaline water through electrolysis, providing the ideal pH, Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP), and micro-clustered water to allow for greater permeability within the cells to hydrate and replenish quicker.
