Water Works

Want your body to work better? Want that work out to be smoother? One of the easiest and most important things you can do to keep your body healthy is to drink water.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, “Most people don’t get enough water on a daily basis.” Thirst is a poor indicator of your water needs. By the time that you feel thirsty you are most likely mildly dehydrated.
Water is great at quenching our thirst but it is absolutely vital in controlling body temperature, moving nutrients and oxygen to cells, flushing out waste products, protecting organs, and cushioning joints.
How much water should you drink? A good rule of thumb is to take your body weight and divide it by 2. Then drink that amount in ounces. For example, you weigh 150 pounds divided by 2 equals 75 ounces. Most experts agree That 2 liters of water daily is the minimum needed to maintain proper hydration. 2 liters equals 8 cups or 66 ounces. If you are working outside in the Georgia heat or working hard at the gym you will lose water through sweat and evaporation so you will need to drink more.
Our joints, discs, muscles, tendons, and ligaments are dependent on the cushioning effect water provides. Water not only keeps all of them lubricated But it also acts as a shock absorber inside the eyes and spinal cord.
Water will help keep you looking your very best too. It actually works to plump up fine lines and wrinkles from the inside out. Water will also improve the elasticity of your skin. It can brighten eyes and make hair silkier too.
Unfortunately, many people live in a constant state of mild dehydration. My Patients often have symptoms such as headaches, heartburn, depression and joint pain. Many of these complaints clear up once they start drinking adequate amounts of water.
I am not a fan of bottled water for many reasons, from the price to pollution of our environment. Bottled water also more often than not contains contaminates like bacteria, arsenic, man-made chemicals, trihalomethanes, phthalates, fluoride, and even lead. Bottled water is allowed to contain contaminates such as fecal material! Tap water, on the other hand, is regulated by the EPA and is tested daily. No poop allowed. To make sure your tap water is safe, visit EWG.org, which houses water-safety ratings of cities across the country. It also rates bottled water. If you live in a place with a bad rating or you don’t like the taste of your tap water, use a filter or faucet mount filtration system.
So hit that work out hard, stay hydrated this summer and Make Sure That You Get Enough Water Daily!
