Do you know how much water you need?
If you know, don't worry, most of us don't. There are many guidelines and many experts telling you how much to drink but how do we know who to believe?
The truth is everyone has different needs and different requirements for our water consumption. There are many factors, for instance, if you live in a warmer climate and work out or are active you will need more water than someone who is inactive. But just because you live in a colder climate doesn't mean you won't be dehydrated.
Dehydration robs you of your energy and may cause decreased urine output, tiredness and can lead to forgetfulness, and lethargy. Dehydration can lead to a decline in sleep and and inability to focus.
To stay properly hydrated it is recommended that you drink 8 glasses a day.
Water helps your body in many ways, besides getting rid of wastes it lubricates your joints and keeps your body temperature normal. A sure sign of dehydration can be seen in the color of your urine. If it isn't clear and has an odor then you know you are dehydrated.
If you are drinking tap water it has been treated with chloramines, amonia or chlorine, you do not want to put more of that in your system. Bottled water can be just as bad, both tap water and bottled water have been known to include pollutants and unregulated (and unwanted) impurities, is bad for the environment and can be expensive.
Carry a water bottle for easy access when you are at work or running errands. Keep healthy and hydrated and drink lots of clear, clean and delicious water from a system that has the highest rating by comsumers and has the most NSF certifications for reduction of contaminants.
