Here’s some welcome news: Water can work wonders for your health!
The humble liquid comprises about 60% of our body weight and allows our internal organs to perform at their best. Water regulates our body temperature, keeps our joints lubricated and carries nutrients to our cells. It also provides moisture to skin, ensuring a bright and radiant glow.
If we’re not adequately hydrated, we may experience nausea and loss of appetite, and may find it difficult to concentrate and perform physical tasks, like carrying groceries or lifting weights.
So it’s important to drink water and the right kind of water. That much we know. And these days, while we stay at home with our reusable cups and convenient access to bathrooms, there’s no good reason not to be drinking enough. And with our Portable Unit, you can make sure you are getting the “right” type of hydrating water. Great also for coffee and tea preparation.
But how much is enough?
The Institute of Medicine recommends that women aim to consume 2.7 liters (or 91 ounces) of fluids daily, and men drink 3.7 liters (or 125 ounces). But this recommendation doesn’t focus on water specifically. Rather, it includes all fluids and water-rich foods, including fruits, vegetables and soups.
What counts as water?
While water is often the default beverage of choice for many nutritionists, other beverages can be included as part of your daily fluid intake, such as nutrient-rich milk, seltzer and even coffee and tea. “All fluids with the exception of alcohol fall under that [fluid] bucket,” Majumdar said.
While it’s a misconception that coffee and tea cause extra fluid loss from the body and are dehydrating, alcohol does have a diuretic effect and can increase the risk for dehydration. “Alcohol will pull out other fluids,” Majumdar said, “but coffee and tea provide fluid and are hydrating.”
Our Portable Unit makes it easy to create revitalized water from your tap and adding Minbiotics will help you achieve the best possible solution for your drinking water.
