Drinking water and Its Goods

Drinking water and Its Goods
Jul 17, 2014 The Diet Doctor

I used to consider nourishment in the literal sense to be the result of eating, digesting and absorbing nutrients from ‘solid foods’, and that drinking water, for the purpose of dissolving and diluting, or to help flush food through the digestive organ. In other words, enable good digestion and absorption. But then, I realized It is no wonder that, water has been passed over by most people as a nutrient in itself, when compared to other well studied nutrients; carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals. Results from research in human and sport nutrition have shown that water serves much more than a ‘flusher’ or food solvent.

Did you know that drinking water at the correct time maximizes its effectiveness on the human body asides aiding digestion and absorption?

Recently, I stumbled upon these tips on water consumption  and the remarkable effect on the body. I find myself trying to fall in line with it, because it seems very promising to boost my water intake (personally, I don’t feel I take enough). Also decided I’ll prescribe it especially for my elderly clients, named it – The Water Kickstart and I love it!. Then I consulted Franklin to see how we could come up with a simply clean graphic design to drive the “drinking water” message across.

P.S. – In this post, there is a FREE beautifully designed poster to share the message to family, friends and folks or just for your viewing pleasure. Please encourage healthy water drinking habits.

Water consumption units to Kickstart the day

2 glasses of water after waking up – helps activate internal organs.

1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion.

1 glass of water before taking a bath/shower – helps lower blood pressure.

1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack.

10 glasses of water a day aids the wash-off of toxins and balances the blood ions.

Top 11 Benefits of Drinking Water

Lose Weight.

Drinking water helps you lose weight because it flushes down the by-products of fat breakdown. Drinking water reduces hunger; it’s an effective appetite suppressant so you’ll eat less. Plus, water has zero calories.

Natural Remedy for Headache.

Helps to relieve headache and back pains due to dehydration. Although there are many other reasons that contribute to headaches, dehydration is the most common one.

Look Younger with Healthier Skin.

You’ll look younger when your skin is properly hydrated. Water helps to replenish skin tissue, moisturizes skin and increase skin elasticity.

Better Productivity at Work.

Your brain is made up mostly of water, thus drinking water helps you think more clearly, be more alert and more able to concentrate.

Helps in Digestion and Constipation.

Drinking water raises your metabolism because it aids with digestion. Fiber and water go hand in hand so that you can have regular bowel movements.

Better Exercise.

Drinking water regulates your body temperature. You’ll feel more energetic when doing exercises and water helps to fuel your muscle.

Less Cramps and Sprains.

Proper hydration helps keep your joints and muscles lubricated, so you’re less likely to get cramps and sprains.

Less Likely to Get Sick.

Drinking plenty of water helps support your immune system which helps fight against flu and other ailments like kidney stones and heart attack.

Relieves Fatigue.

Water is used by the body to help flush out toxins and waste products from the body. If your body lacks water, your heat, for instance, needs to work harder to pump out the oxygenated blood to all cells, so are the rest of the vital organs, your organs will be exhausted and so are you.

Good Mood.

Your body feels very good and that’s why you feel happy.

Reduce the Risk of Cancer.

Related to the digestive system, some studies show that drinking a healthy amount of water may reduce the risks of bladder cancer and colon cancer. Water dilutes the concentration of cancer-causing agents in the urine and shortens the time in which they are in contact with the bladder lining.

Happy drinking H20!
