Are You Drinking Enough Water?

Submitted by admin on August 01, 2011

An important question to ask yourself is whether or not you are drinking enough water, many of us consider whether or not the quality of water we drink is up to par, but not necessarily the amount we are taking in. The human body is made up of 75% water and going without water for just a few days, as previously discussed, could cause a person to die. Every living creature depends on water to live. The shocking fact is that the majority of people are chronically dehydrated, up to 75% of the population!

Here are some other little known water facts:

-In 37% of us, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger. In a university study, one glass of water taken at midnight stopped hunger pangs for almost 100% of the people studied.

-A lack of water is the number one trigger of daytime fatigue. Even a small increase of 2% body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math and difficulty focusing on the computer screen. On the other hand, a reduction of 4%-5% in body water can result in a decline of 20%-30% work performance.

-Even mild dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as much as 3%.

The recommended daily dose of 8 glasses of water a day is a well-known fact. This recommendation is for 8 glasses of actual water, not coffee, tea, juice, sports drinks, or soft drinks. How much water are you drinking every day?

By assessing your daily intake of water and recognizing its importance, you must then consider the quality of water you are drinking. Heavily chlorinated, chemical ridden and denatured water, such as the water we receive from our taps, also have links to serious health problems. By treating your water with the Vortex Water Revitalizer, your water will become easier and more pleasant to drink, and because of its instant absorption by your body, you will be better hydrated.
