We all know that drinking enough water every day is crucial for our health. In many ways, it enables us to perform our daily tasks and move through life. But what exactly does water do in our body, and how much should we drink?
The wonders of water
The amount of water you should drink depends on several factors, such as your gender, age, weight, physical activity level, and geographical location. In hotter countries, it's logical to drink more water. On average, an adult should drink 6-8 glasses
of water. But why? Firstly, it helps regulate body temperature, lubricate joints, and aid in waste elimination. It prevents dehydration, which can cause mood changes and unclear thinking. Who knew water could do so much for our bodies?
How to drink more water?
Most people struggle to consume enough water on a daily basis. It can be challenging, given the many options like coffee, tea, and sugary drinks. So how do you ensure you're maintaining a steady water intake? Carry a water bottle around and refill it whenever possible. You're more likely to drink water if it's within reach. Try adding fruit to your water. A few slices of cucumber, lemon, or mint can significantly increase your water intake. Tasty and healthy!
Watch out for...
Not all water is good for you. If you've ever been on vacation somewhere where you can't drink the water, you already know this. But even in the UK, toxins can still make their way through the tap and into your glass. For instance, medicine waste or pesticides. To ensure your water is in top shape, consider using an AquaTru filter, which removes 99% of toxins from your drinking water. The less toxins there are in your water, the better it is for your overall health. Filtered water also tastes better. Drinking enough water has never been this easy.
Get rid of plastic
Pure water isn't only pleasant in the comfort of your own home! We've all purchased a plastic water bottle while on the go, but did you know that microplastics from the bottle end up in the water you're drinking? The AquaTru Be O Bottle is made from residual material of sugarcane. Fill it with your filtered water, and it's a win-win situation!
