Are you drinking enough water?

March 22, 2012

Lora Ulrich and The New You Lifestyle are all about helping you create a happier, healthier life and body. Lately we’ve been blogging about healthy eating, healthy lifestyle choices, having enough energy throughout the day and here’s something very important – water! We love sharing valuable information that can help you make those simple lifestyle changes that create significant improvements. Did you know that on average about 60 percent of the human body is made up of water? Drinking enough water every day is extremely important. We did a little digging to see what the experts are saying about water… read on!

Water – How Much is More Important Than When.

Great info from Sue Ward, Certified Nutritionist, Sanoviv Medical Institute.

– 1 glass of water upon rising (we recommend room temperature water with the juice of 1/2 a fresh lemon with a few shakes of cayenne pepper)

– Plenty of water throughout the day (especially in hot weather or when exercising)

– Limit water with meals (too much water with a meal or too close to a meal may interfere with or dilute digestive enzymes)

The bottom line is, not enough water will always be a problem to all body systems. Chronic dehydration is a big problem. It is MUCH more important to be sure you take in enough water than it is to worry about scheduling drinks at a specific time.

We also recommend drinking pure water (filtered tap water is our first choice) and a Reverse Osmosis filter would be a good choice (be sure to add ¼ teaspoon of Unrefined Celtic Salt or Himalayan salt per gallon to put back some essential minerals). Drinking bottled water? Read our thoughts on bottled water – click here.

And for those of you who read your way to good health, we recommend Your Body’s Many Cries for Water by Dr. Batmanghelidj
