Did you know that an estimated seventy-five percent of Americans are dehydrated?
Water is necessary for survival and essential to your health and beauty. Water makes up approximately 60 to 70 percent of the human body by weight. It is crucial to stay hydrated to keep our bodies running smoothly.
The human brain is made up of 95% water, blood is 82% and lungs are 90% water.
Water assists with:
Digestion and absorption of food
Removal of toxins from your body (it is the best agent for detoxification)
Maintaining proper muscle tone
Forming the fluids that surround the joints
Regulating the body temperature
Regulating the metabolism
Nourishing your skin cells
Signs and symptoms of dehydration:
Dizziness or feeling lightheaded
Infrequent or dark urination
Muscle weakness or cramping
You should be drinking 1/2 of your body weight in ounces of water everyday. Replace calorie-laden and artificial soft drinks with water. Drink ice cold water to rev up your metabolism. Drink pure filtered water throughout the day for optimum health and detoxification.
I have found my ultimate favorite water bottle at Target for $8.99. It is glass with a wide mouth which makes it easier to clean and to use ice. I love glass because then you do not have to worry about the dangerous plastic BPA’s. The perfect thing about this water bottle is that it is accident proof. Trust me I have dropped mine more times than I would like to admit.
