The market today
is flooded with various kinds of bottled water, still water, mineral
water, spring water, flavored water, but what is this bottled water
about? Where does it come from, what is in the water that we buy
and drink? What sets one brand apart from the other? Is bottled
water better than tap water? What should we be on the lookout for?
What is the difference between clean water, purified water, distilled
water, filtered water?
what people have in common with peas? Possibly not, but you’ll
be interested to know that both are made up of about 75% water and
are in constant danger of dehydration. Not only is our body 75%
water, our brain is 80% water and our blood 90%. And, if you find
it hard to think of yourself as three quarters water, consider this:
adults lose nearly three and a half litres of water daily –
just over half a litre in perspiration, a little over one litre
exhaling, and almost two litres in urine.
Next to oxygen, water is the most essential element to sustain human
life. Four days without food is tolerable. Four days without water
That you need
to drink between one and a half and two litres of water each day
is common knowledge, but lest you forget WHY, here’s a quick
reminder. Water is more than a carrier of other materials. It is
a solvent, an infiltrator of cells, a digestion aid, a dilutor,
a dilator, a nutrient transport system, a waste disposal system,
a chemical conduit, an energy combustor, a lubricant, flushes out
the liver and kidneys, keeps our skin hydrated, a coolant and a
latent heat bank, it controls body temperature as well as the electrolyte
balance in our blood.
Why do we get
illnesses ? If our body water level drops, our performance drops
and we feel listless and tired. Water helps to purify the blood.
It reduces stress on the heart and stomach. It cleans the body’s
own filtering system. It promotes the removal of body toxins. And
we thought all it did was quench our thirst!
