Three Things Most Families Don’t Know About Water

65237_421077471302446_994481932_nWe hear a lot about proper nutrition, but one of the most essential of all nutrients is all around us, yet most of us don’t get near enough of it.

I’m talking about water, good old H2O – it’s necessary for almost everything your body does, and in fact, our body is mostly composed of it – so how come so many people are suffering from dehydration, the condition where your body isn’t getting enough water to work properly?

At least three factors contribute to this problem –

1. Most people don’t realize how much water they need to drink in a day. Many doctors agree that half an ounce for every pound of body weight would be sufficient – this means that if you weigh 128 pounds, you’d need 64 ounces of water, or eight 8-ounce glasses per day. Likewise, if you weigh 192 pounds, you’d need to take in 96 ounces, or about twelve 8-ounce glasses each day.

2. Most people think drinking any fluid is just like drinking water – but it’s not. Once there is anything in the water other than water, your body sees it as a food. Only water is water, so the amount of water you need to drink does not include iced tea, juice, soda, coffee, or any other beverage.

3. Most people don’t comprehend the level of pollution and contamination in most public drinking water. Bottled water has higher standards, but if you can install a filtration system in your house, that’s even better.

Learn about water, and make sure that you and your family include enough clean, pure water in your daily diet – you’ll spend less money on junk drinks, and your health will surely improve.
