3 Things You Didn’t Know About Water

 Everybody knows water is good for you.  Everybody knows  they ought to drink it, but here are 3 important facts about water you need to know.

  1. All water is not necessarily good for you. Several bottled water companies add sodium to their water and sodium is found in homes with softened water.  While sodium can help you replace lost electrolytes if you’re outside sweating profusely for hours and hours, it can also be a source if extra bloat and swelling if you’re not doing those things.  Extra sodium on a daily basis increases water retention and has the ability to raise blood pressure over time.  Opt for a purified type water
  2. Dehydration feels like hunger and it only takes 2 hours to start to dehydrate. Our body systems are so deconditioned in America where food is plentiful. We think we’re hungry when we really just need water.  Next time you wake up ‘hungry’ in the night, or feel ‘hungry’ when you’ve just eaten… drink some water.
  3. There’s such a thing as not enough water and too much water.  Every cell in your body needs water.  When you don’t drink enough water, your body will store what you do give it for later use, meaning you may see swelling and the number on the scale goes up or refuses to budge.  Conversely too much water can cause your body to swell as well if you flush all the sodium out of your body.  Half your body weight in ounces up to about a gallon is a good starting place to find the exact amount that’s right for

There you have it!  Now you can make decisions about water that help rather than harm your health efforts.
