Our bodies are 60-70% water. Human bodies runs on water, because chemicals travel in water. Not enough water? Our chemical reactions suffer. Brain cells demand much more: oxygen, water, and nutrition. They suffer from even a little thirst.
“But coffee/tea/beer/soda have water, don’t they?” Unfortunately, they all are diuretics (meaning: they will make you pee out double what you drink of them). When you choose to drink those other beverages, just add a glass of ‘water’ along with each glass of ( X ). Also, water taken in that way, will ease your risk of a hangover.
How much water do I need to drink a day? Roughly, eight – 8oz. glasses/day. Remember to drink more with hot weather, exercise, and to pair with other beverages (as mentioned above).
I like to start each day with a glass of water 30 minutes before eating or having coffee. I do drink tea regularly. After a few cups of tea, I often notice my hands look old and wrinkly. I run to get some water, quick.
Keep up your water intake and you will be noticeably sharper, more energetic, and more beautiful.
