Stop The Body Drought

Why Do We Need To Drink Water?

Water is the most important thing we put into our body!! You could live for 3 weeks without food, not a good idea!! But you could only live for 3 days without fluid, even worst idea!! Water makes up 2/3 of our bodies, brain cells are 80-90% fluid and muscle cells are 60-70% fluid.

Water is involved in nearly every body process including:

  • Transporting and carrying nutrients between cells in the body
  • Exchanging oxygen we breathe in with carbon dioxide
  • Excretion of waste products in our urine

Water keeps your skin healthy and helps reduce wrinkles!!

Water helps reduce your chances of a headache or helps get rid of a headache!!!

How much water do we need?

The simple recommendation is… “ More than your drinking now”

The “scientific” recommendation is… 1 litre of fluid for every 25 kilograms of body weight and 1 litre extra for every hour of exercise!!

We lose at least 1.5 litres everyday through our urine, sweat, our lungs and through skin. When we exercise or in a warmer climate this then increases dramatically!!

It is better to hydrate the body progressively during the day then tyring to re-hydrate it once it has already become dehydrated. As a general rule if you are thirsty and you have dry lips then you are already dehydrated.

Thirsty means you are already de-hydrated!!

Our water intake comes from

  • Juice
  • Soft Drink
  • Cordial
  • Milk
  • Fruit and Vegetables
  • Tea and Coffee

Water is by far… THE BEST source of FLUID!!!
