For decades now, a lot of publications have been posting about the benefit of water, but do we really need that much water, and do other liquid serve the same purpose as water?
The world of science is still not 100% in agreement, and when it comes to the exact amount that is needed daily, the jury is still out.
One thing that I can tell you after 35 years in the wellness business, teaching, owning gyms, and having the pleasure to work with thousands of people, is that the answer is YES on whether we need water or not!
How much water do we need? Science tells us that we should drink half of our body weight in ounces, but never to accede 128 ounces. I believe that 64 oz. per day is adequate and should be plenty if you are consistent.
Does alcohol, coffee, and other beverages serve the same purpose? NO! The reason why is both alcohol and caffeine, are considered diuretics and work against hydrating the system. As a matter of fact, by drinking too much caffeine or alcohol, you can increase the side of effects of being dehydrated. Your joints will ace more, you’ll have more headaches, you’ll damage the cells in your body, skin, blood and your kidneys due to the lack of ability to flush toxics out of your body on a daily basis.
What about water out of the faucet, is it safe?
In America, our water quality is considered the best in the world. However, there are studies showing that the level of fluoride in your urine during pregnancy might be tied to lower intelligence in children later on. The study was published by researchers at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University Toronto.
Conclusion:Always drink filtered water. If you’re worried about the BPA in the plastic bottles, I recommend that you purchase a PUR water cooler and a metal cup to consume your water.
